Cyber Monday

cybermondayTwas the Monday after Black Friday and all through the house,
no other customers just shop with just your mouse…

And to celebrate Cyber Monday, every single one of my* ebooks is currently set with a matchbook** price of $0.00

That’s right. Zero.

If you’ve ever purchased one of my physical books from amazon, the ebook is free for you to grab right now as a way for me to say Thank You for your support. Thank you.

And if you’ve got a favorite, one you’d like to share, or one you think someone else would enjoy—now’s the time. Purchase the book for someone on your holiday shopping list, and get the ebook version FREE for yourself. Or the physical for one person and the ebook for another . Two books for the price of one? Yeah, that simple. You’re welcome.

Don’t Miss Out

xmasemail‘Tis the season…

Now that Halloween is over, we can start talking about the fat man in the red suit, and all the kindles, iphones with kindle apps, and amazon gift cards he’s going to give away this year.

To help the elves bring you goodies, I’ll be doing a couple sales during the holiday season… if you don’t want to miss out on a sale day when it happens, make sure you sign up for my emailing list asap…

 

 

This will notify you, via email, of new blogs when posted and help keep you in the loop during the season of too much spam, xmas popups from hell, and the rest of the deluge no human can possibly keep up with. And of course, you should follow my author page on Facebook for more frequent updates!

Hope you had a great Halloween… now let’s get the turkey ready and stock up on wrapping paper.

Share Me for Halloween

skullbook2Have you purchased one of my ebooks? If so, first and foremost, thank you. I appreciate your support and hope you enjoyed it. That said… you should share it!

When you have a physical book you enjoy, what do you do? You pass it around. Before ebooks, we did it all the time. You handed off what you enjoyed and told friends/family they should read it. Or you were the one borrowing from others. It was a beautiful tradition—even with the occasional rules about bending bindings and dog-earring pages. So why not do that with your ebooks? Why should this tradition be gone just because the book isn’t physical?

In the spirit of the season, why not give a friend a good scare? Go ahead… spread the love. Consider it Trick or Cyber-Treat to someone who may not have read my work before. I mean, after all, Amazon offers it and I agreed to it, so what the hell, let’s abuse it!!

At the top of the Amazon page for the book you’ve already purchased, above the title, you’ll see this:

And clicking it gets you this lovely window:

 

loan2Fill it out, hit the button, and spread the love. Two things to remember: a. you can only do this once per book, unfortunately. b. they do not need a kindle to read it. For more details on the how’s or why’s, click here.

Happy Halloween, everyone!!!

 

ps: I will not receive payment or notification if you share, so please let me know if you do!!

Scares That Care Weekend

scaresthatcareScares That Care Weekend
June 27-29
at the Doubletree by Hilton
in Williambsburg, VA

Not your normal horror convention…

From the official website:

The difference between our convention and the others out there is simple: all of our proceeds will go to the families that need our assistance. “Scares That Care!” is a charitable organization, designed to bring together the fans of “all things spooky” in order to give back to the families that need it most by providing money, toys and other items to help sick children.

Delighted to be invited to be part of this movement, I will be attending the convention’s maiden voyage this weekend as a guest writer. You can find me at a table in the celebrity room where I will have the items listed below, otherwise my schedule is:

PANEL — FRIDAY   9:00pm
The More Things Change – It is said that writing and publishing have changed in the advent of the digital age. But has it really, or do the same perils and pitfalls still exist? Veteran authors Thomas Monteleone, Kelli Owen and Mary SanGiovanni are joined by newcomers Kristopher Rufty, Jonathan Janz, and Chris Jensen for a discussion on writing and selling horror in the era of Kindle. Moderated by Jacob Haddon.

READING — SATURDAY   1:30pm
Kelli Owen and Mary SanGiovanni – Reading and Q&A

And what I’ll have with me? For the first time, I will actually have my entire library with me.

Novels: Six Days, White Picket Prisons, Live Specimens
Novellas: Waiting Out Winter, The Neighborhood, Grave Wax, Survivor’s Guilt, Buried Memories, Crossroads, and my newest release, Deceiver
Collection: Black Bubbles
as well as a smattering of magazines, chaps, etc. including Fresh Blood chap with Bob Freeman & Dave Alexander, New Dawn with Robert Ford, Nate Southard and Maurice Broaddus, Dust/Divorcing The Dead dual chap with Brian Keene, and the Halloween edition of Shroud Magazine

And  brand spanking new, being unveiled at this convention, I will have: Posters!

Each of my novellas has been turned into a readable piece of artwork for your wall (limited con supplies). Posters measure 14×25.5″ with a gloss cover and UV coating. Click individual poster for larger view.

Readers Old and New

IMG_5971Just a quick thank you to everyone who took advantage of the 99¢ Sale while I was gallivanting around the high seas. I appreciate the support of old readers and curiosity of new — and hope you all enjoy your goodies.

Of course, now I’m back. Herbert has been blocked from the computer, and the prices will be returning to normal today. I did however write every morning while gone (see picture? best office ever!) and you’ll be getting new treats to read very soon…

Again, thank you for all the support!!
