Having read an advance copy, I was very impressed with this piece. It's well worth pre-ordering.
 
For those who may have missed it. 

Feathered Touch book 2 in my dark urban fantasy series is up for pre-order! It's only $1.99, but will go up to $3.99 soon after the full release. 

Deep in the ancient forests, a strange cult led by angels is slaughtering innocent humans. The Wyrd Sisters send their troubleshooter Thalia and her pack into the forest to stop them. Thalia thinks this will be a welcome distraction from problems with her pack and with her ever-more-tangled love life … but there’s more going on than she knows. The leader of the cult has an ambitious goal: To kill the gods. All the gods. 

Thalia finds herself torn between her past and a possible new future. Does she chase her centuries-old dream of freedom, or stand by the Sisters – and pay the ultimate price?

Every time I deal with indie authors, I find them more contemptible and pathetic than the time before.

Yes, there are exceptions but I can genuinely say that I find complete illiterates (not to be confused with mere subliterates) more interesting, insightful, artistically minded, and reasonable than the average indie author.

I genuinely don't know if the same can be said for traditionally published authors, having never have the pleasure of dealing with them, but at the very least indies have given no sign that, as a group, they have any features more redeeming than blind, pathological loyalty to those with whom they personally identify.

I was very upset with Google for filtering search results to agree with their socio-political agenda. Outraged, even. I thought to myself, "Well, fuck them, I can replace them with like 10 other people! This is one man willing to lead the charge!"

Then I started looking around and realized that Apple, Amazon, eBay, and like a thousand others are also banning content containing certain symbols they disagree with.

Now I just feel... lonely.

It's not that I actively dislike sharing tastes or ideas with other people, it's just that, well... have you met other people?

Stop pretending to be offended. That's not a real emotion, and you know it.

Do it! Do it now! 

These are definitely worth it.
 
Pick Up TWO Dark Urban Fantasy Books for Just $2.98 For One Week Only.

Wyrd Calling has been reduced down to just 99c (usually $3.99) and Feathered Touch is being launched at just $1.99. 

If you're looking for two dark urban fantasy reads, for just $2.98 then you have one short week to pick these up. 

Wyrd Calling 
In the streets of the city, someone or something is killing sirens, and the Wyrd Sisters want it stopped. 

They send their bound creation Thalia, the wild-child shifter, to track the killer down. Thalia would much rather be making a quick buck or playing with the fae, but bound is bound and Thalia must turn her new pack of shifters into an effective team to try and stop the killings. Time is as short as Thalia's temper. Can she make her pack work together and find the killer, or will the killer find her first? 

Wyrd Calling: Dark urban fantasy just shifted. 

ONLY 99c

I tend to believe everyone has a book in them... I'm just not fully convinced everyone should let it out.

"I hate the new policy about giving reviews to people I know!"

Why so, very reasonable indie author not at all living in a delusional fantasy world?

"It stops me from supporting my friends with positive reviews of their work!"

Would you ever give a friend a bad review if their work was garbage, deeply ethical and altogether perceptive indie author?

"Of course not! That would be a personal attack like all negative reviews! I only want to be supportive!"

Exactly.


The reason they did it is to stop circle-jerking of the precise sort indie authors are (very rightly) infamous for. You hate it for the same reason pederasts hate the Amber Alert system.

I have now read every post from the past 48 hours that G+ felt I deserved. I arrived at 3:32.

Just a quick update on how well G+ is doing on that algorithm.

I leave the tab open and reload it with the blue button, scroll down to where I left off (holding down page down) and manage to see what seems like all the posts. May not be, but it's WAY better than any other option I've come across so far.

I'm not a white knight, I just like hurting people and dislike social repercussions.

Kind of a blue knight with a fabulously flamboyant red sash.

Readers hot tip!

Buy a paperback of the cheapest novel you can find, and then run your hands over it every time you read an ebook so you can get the "tactile experience" that's so crucial to enjoyment!
