Haven’t read it yet because you don’t have time? Happy commute! Know someone who loves audiobooks and a good dark story? Buried Memories…

Hypnotized to quit smoking after his dad is diagnosed with lung cancer, Ben Danski begins to dream about a childhood he doesn’t remember. The dreams become more frequent. Vivid. Frightening.

Further hypnosis reveals events he doesn’t want to believe, but as Ben decides to ignore them, his past finds him. Details trigger more than Ben bargains for, as both distant and recent memories are unblocked, and change his life forever…

Now brought to you through the audio talents of Jason Jewett. Buried Memories, currently available on Payhip (for only $6.00 choose that one!), Amazon, Audible, and coming soon to other audio retailers. Happy listening!!

This Week’s Rating: PG13 — buttercup ratings system info here

In this episode … I define and dissect social media— why we have it, how we use it, when to nuke it. I give a 101 on the various ways to advertise without spamming on the multitude of platforms, break down intention vs reality for the big three, look at the generational preferences, and have a thought or two on the red coffee cup.

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…

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!!
