For those of you not Kindle-minded, Android Me is now available in epub format via Smashwords. As it propagates through the distribution chain, it should soon be available at Barnes and Noble, Kobo, iBooks, and others. I'll keep you updated as I get confirmation. (So you know, I manually formatted the Kindle and epub files, so there won't be any weird errors because of a file conversion...at least, not unless I missed something.)

In the meantime, now is the perfect time to download your copy in time to read this weekend (or order a book to read next weekend). Links to the Smashwords, Kindle, and the print editions are on the official page.

One of the great things about the holidays being over is that you no longer have to tend to all those holiday things that take so much time and sap your energy. Now you can relax with a good book. It just so happens that I can recommend one: Android Me. It takes place in the not-too-distant future...a future that (in a surprising twist) isn't a gloomy and oppressive dystopia. In fact, there really isn't any obvious oppression at all.

...Unless you're an android with a brain.

Dreams shattered. An unexpected life detour. A faraway town that may be keeping a secret. This is the gentle story of how an up-and-coming surgeon ends up in a small Alaskan town where she comes to suspect the place has a secret which keeps Christmas Under Wraps.

As you might expect from the title, The Nine Lives of Christmas uses cats as it’s plot device. In this case, a pair of felines serve as…ahem, CATalysts (sorry)…to bring our two future happily-ever-

Story
Tagline
I commit random and sometimes senseless acts of art and writing.
Introduction
Though now a writer and artist, I've worked in many fields, including: satellite/space systems programmer, art department manager, convenience store drone, and many things in between. I love learning and sharing what I know. And I'm a bit of a humorist (or smart-ass....it sort of depends on whether you laugh or not).

I also use ellipses much more than I should. But if such a little thing gives you joy, I say go with it.

If you like to read science fiction, please check out my latest novel, Que Sera Serees, either on its official web page or over on Amazon.
