Now own a Kindle

I drank the Kool-aid and bought a Kindle DX.

I had not intended to spend quite that much on a reader, but in the end that’s what I did and so far I like it. All of my PDFs from past ebook purchases went onto it in a flash and read quite nicely, thank you very much. I do need to get a clip on light, though, since our house tends to be on the dark side.

I’ve had it all of two days but in those two days I’ve read 2 1/2 books, so that’s got to be something, yeah? It also dawned on me that getting research books might be pretty cool on this thing. Got myself the collected works of Jules Verne so I can get a better handle on steampunk.

And, hey, it’s a tax write off!

Ongoing Forum chat on The Phade

I was invited to join The Phade. It’s a forum originally created to further discuss The Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward, but it seems to have grown to much more than that. There are some great discussions and threads on a great number of things with some really insightful reviews and talks.

There’s a thread specifically to ask me questions here. I’ve already answered some Heaven Sent and Leashed questions. It’s an ongoing thread.

I’m a newbie there so I don’t know it all, but the mods are really nice. Perhaps one of them is around and can add some more information in the comments?

Leashed

I posted this over at Loose Ends but kind of liked it so I’ll post it here too.

*******************

My newest release is now available! It’s the third–well, actually fourth but it’s the third about this set of characters–book in a series. It’s made me think about the series.

In the summer of 2005, I was asked if I’d like to be in an anthology at Loose Id. Werewolves for Halloween. Could I do it? I gave it some thought. At the time, I had two books out, both in the Dark Elves series. I kind of wanted to do something else, branch out if you will before I got too far into one flavor of erotic romance. So I said sure. Why not? Anthology had to be good exposure, right? Continue reading Leashed

Amazon/Booksurge might be forcing my books off Amazon

I don’t know a lot about it, but it sounds awful. From what I’ve heard, pretty soon, if your publisher doesn’t use Booksurge (Loose Id does not, they use Lightning Source), your books won’t have a “buy” link on Amazon. Well, that would suck rocks, wouldn’t it?

Not sure what can be done, but knowledge is power, yeah?
