Only two months until Dawn's Early Light comes out. FINALLY! Eliza and Wellington have all sorts of capers, and there are about five different famous inventors in this book. Also Sophia del Morte!

Finally we can reveal the cover of the next Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences book. The Janus Affair will be coming late May this year.

We made it into 5 figures for the first time in 2013. It was the difference between survival and not last year. Could be the same for this year...
So here is the wisdom I have gathered from last year. http://www.pjballantine.com/2014/01/17/indie-book-success/

Part of ImagineThat! Studios experiments in publishing this year is giving a percentage of our books away for free, and not just audio—as ebooks as well. Right now it is Chasing the Bard. You can also find it on Smashwords.

All prepped for SOPA and PIPA (no relation) blackout. Sorry, no Ministry, tweeting, facebooking, and no erotica tomorrow. I anticipate getting plenty of writing done and the house will look amazing!

Great read. Spoil yourself and go get it. And don't go kissing any little gray guys.

HarperCollins has picked Phoenix Rising as one of 10 titles they are offering at 99c for a limited time. We're pretty excited by this development!
