Battlecry! (a gift for anyone who can see this)

I’m guessing hundreds, if not thousands, of people now read this blog (based on the combo of subscriptions and RSS hits).

It’s really kind of amazing. While it looks like this blog has been active for a long time, in truth I ported it to WordPress from my website not terribly long ago — 18 months maybe? — which basically meant starting from zero.

To celebrate, I’m offering blog subscribers a free e-copy of my forthcoming occult mystery.

Yes, actually free. Here is the draft cover and blurb:

See below for contact information.

On top of that, I also have two Giveaways already in progress that anyone is free to jump on:

First, I’m giving away a Complete Paperback Set of THE MINUS FACTION — all seven episodes

That’s $60 worth of books!

The winner will be drawn at random from all the new reviews left on any of the seven books from now through the end of the month — provided you also email me to let me know where you left your review. (I need the email. Otherwise I can’t contact the winner to get their shipping address. So please don’t forget.)


Be honest. I don’t care if you hated it. Seriously. Even popular books have plenty of haters. Above a certain minimum, it’s the absolute number of reviews that matters anyway.

Second, I am also giving away a FANTASMAGORIA color-changing mug.

Same rules as above. Remember the email, and remember there is no minimum length or star rating. Be honest. Seriously.

fantasmagoria_mugs-both-sidesThe mug is pretty awesome. It’s black at room temperature, where only the cover is visible. When heated — such as with hot coffee — it turns white, revealing the famous line from the book, “Is this a bag of penises?”

I expect your chances of winning are excellent.
