Ebook stats, and the Slush Pile...

Posted on September 11, 2010 at 9:43pm 6 Comments

I have my novel placed in about a dozen ebook sites, either for sale or for free download. Only half of these keep stats, but so far i have 845 copies of the book downloaded, and 494 times the novel has been viewed online. Granted, there are very few sales, but then, this is an ebook and the goal is exposure, so I'm happy with these numbers, for now.


On another front, I had a disturbing thought the other day - that the growing number of self-published novels in individual… Continue

The Complete ebook...

Posted on July 29, 2010 at 5:23pm 2 Comments

Ok,I dropped the price of my novel from $4.95 to .99, shifting my marketing focus back to my original intention of exposure over revenue. The novel is now in over a dozen or more "free ebook" directory websites. I even sent a review submission to RAW Sistaz!

Here's the download link for the novel from my website's book page in PDF format:…


Trolling for Reviews...

Posted on June 9, 2010 at 7:36pm 0 Comments

Ok, my new novel, Banjo Strings, is out in ebook form and the next step in my marketing campaign is seeking good, objective reviews for my controversial and colorful adult epic. Instead of shelling out big bucks to 'pay for review' sites for results that certainly wouldn't be considered 'objective,' I'm choosing this option:

The eBook

Posted on May 17, 2010 at 7:42pm 1 Comment

Over the weekend I finished work on the ebook version of my novel and submitted to Smashwords and Amazon. The Smashwords link is up (, but at the moment both sites have me in "pending" mode. I like Smashwords because I have the opportunity to register an ISBN number under my own publishing imprint!

The formal publication launch is set for Memorial Day. The eBook is priced at… Continue

Assault of the Mainstream

Posted by Turtel Onli on December 6, 2018 at 8:10am 1 Comment

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of addictive  brand loyalty...the Black On Black boycott....and culturally based anti-intellectualisms.  I often present on panels.....over the years since San Diego,,,,,Wizards.......C2E2.....on the Black Age or diversity....  Usually with a lame unprofessional uninformed person in charge.  Each time some hater stands up to taut how racist the Black Age is and how he of she gets so much more outta Manga/Anime'.

Sort of like all of the Black folks that spent 8 years complaining about…

A glass of beer, deconstructed. (a) At the beer’s surface sits a head of foam. (b) A trail of bubbles rises from a nucleation site along the glass wall. The rising of bubbles from different nucleation sites induces a global circulation (sketched here with white arrows). (c) Cellulose fibers serve as nucleation sites; gas cavities inside the fiber are clearly visible. (d) A 3-mm-wide mushroom-shaped bubble plume arises from the implosion of a millimeter-sized bubble when a beer bottle is gently tapped. (e) Surface bubbles seen from…

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
