It has been a crazy couple of weeks. I’ve been going non-stop since I released The Lightcap, but that’s a good thing. It’s taken a lot of work, but I’ve got my book on the shelves at four bookstores in Portland, one in Vancouver, and at my local library. I’ve got three book readings scheduled for July and hope to record an audiobook version within the next month or two. In addition to all this, I’m still rocking the full time job and a couple other side projects.
One of those side projects is a book review site. It’s interesting . . . I spent $12 to register the domain, slapped the page together in about a day, and now I’m getting free books! I have so many free books to read that I’ve been forced to turn a few people down. I started the review site because I’ve had a lot of difficulty finding places that are willing to even consider reviewing self-published books, and many of the reviewers who list themselves as willing to accept solicitations from independent authors never wrote me back. I don’t fault them for it–after less than a week I’m already swamped with submissions from self-published authors–but it’s still a bit of a bruise to the ego.
So as an homage to my hometown (Columbus, OH . . . 614 area code represent!) I’m offering the ebook version of The Lightcap for free all day today. I’m also kicking off a month-long giveaway on Goodreads. I’ll be giving away three paperback copies of the book. The giveaway ends on July 13. If you wish to enter, you can use the form below.
