NaNoWriMo 2016

nanowrimoDid you know Six Days was actually started, and the first 50k completed, during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month for those unfamiliar with the acronym)? It was. And it’s that time of year again…

6days16-cover300I would like to wish all the participants the greatest of luck. Write everyday. Don’t panic. Don’t edit. Just write. Editing can come later, in December. For now, just write. A little before work, a little on lunch, a little after dinner, a lot on a day off, whatever you can squeeze in… because every little step it a step closer to your goal. And new reading material for me, so get to it!!

And while I am not officially participating in a tracking, overt manner, I’d still like to celebrate 2016’s NaNoWriMo… so for the month of November, I give you the ebook for SIX DAYS at a 75% discount when purchased through payhip (<— use that link). Simply enter the coupon code: NANOWRIMO16 when checking out.

Those of you doing NaNoWriMo, you can read it in December… right now you’ve got writing to do. Get to it, and again, good luck!

(and yes, that’s a new cover… there’s more new things coming as well — audiobook coming soon!)

Inventory Blow Out

So I’ve been rearranging bookshelves, going through convention stock boxes, and I realize I need to make room for the next year (which, excitingly enough, already has four releases planned). I need room! So I’m selling the stranglers, final copies, and extra originals—and you get a chance to grab that thing you don’t have. Best part? You don’t even have to leave your house to hunt me down at a convention, and you can still get your goodies personally signed.

Inventory with quantity and prices in parenthesis. I will update quantities as they go and mark items sold out when gone. Note: any currently in print paperbacks may be available for those looking for signed copies, just ask.

FLOATERS – on SALE

floaters-fb20

 

The ebook of my new novel FLOATERS is ON SALE for a limited time thru Payhip*  (use coupon code KO1601, sale ends Sunday 8/28)

Detective Carly Greene was only eleven when she learned Lake Superior was a brutal beast, capable of bringing up long forgotten memories of pain and death, by occasionally releasing the bodies of those trapped beneath her waves.

As an adult, Carly still despises the bodies occasionally coughed up, and the high water eroding the edge of the graveyard this year gave “floaters” a new meaning. But she could never have prepared for what else broke free to swim with those long dead.

Part myth. Part monster. Older than time.

Carly, along with the medical examiner and a local reporter, must find and destroy a forgotten legend in the waters at the edge of Lake Superior. Before it decides it’s time to feed. And breed…

Busy Week

busyweekOne-shot update on a lot of activity around here lately.

As always, new Buttercup of Doom podcasts are live on Monday nights, generally by 7pm EST but life happens on occasion.

I’m happy to announce TWO new “bundles” on ebooks. Perfect for those who need or want both.

For those who may not have read WAITING OUT WINTER, you can now get it with THE HATCH in the “Stand-Alone Series” bundle. Save money, and get the whole story…

For those looking for something on the thriller side to begin their collection, I give you the “Thriller Double-Pack” with SIX DAYS and WHITE PICKET PRISONS. Again, save money when you get the bundle pack.

The best news of the last seven days — * * * New Release * * * WILTED LILIES is now available in both ebook and paperback. Originally offered as a serial novella through Lamplight magazine, this is the tale of ghosts, and girls, and guessing which is worse: hearing the living, or talking with the dead.

And finally, with all the new things arriving and yet to come, I’ve redone the bookstore page on the site so you can see novels, novellas, and more at a glance, and go from there…

That’s the week… thanks for visiting!

New Release: THE HATCH

hatch-400x600dpi72THE HATCH
(stand-alone sequel to “Waiting Out Winter”)

Nick Kontis and his remaining family members have survived winter—have outlived the threat of deadly infected flies—and are heading toward presumed safety. They quickly find all exit points blocked, the perimeter burned, and learn the flies were only the beginning, as Mother Nature has stepped in to correct mankind’s mistakes.

Her weapon of choice: spiders.

With thick webs covering the spring landscape, and lack of any communication leaving them on their own to guess whether or not the spiders are as lethal as the flies they’re eating, they make a new plan. Fleeing in a new direction they run into another party of survivors. And what was once a breakdown of society becomes an exercise in rebuilding.

They’ll need to find common ground and bond with the others, before winter arrives again. Before the spiders declare victory…
