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

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...

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:

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

The U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant spent hours on end planning a wide-scale domestic terrorist attack, even logging in at his work computer on the job at headquarters to study the manifestos and heinous paths of mass shooters, prosecutors say. He researched how to carry out sniper attacks, they contend, and whether rifle scopes were illegal. And all the while, investigators assert, he was amassing a cache of weapons as he ruminated about attacks on politicians and journalists.

But Christopher P. Hasson was not an isolated figure, according to a contractor who worked with him. The 49-year-old…

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.
