A January Half-price and a Permafree

Hello, my friends. I believe 2015 is going to be the most amazing year yet. Big plans are afoot, and I have a lot I want to do. I promise to share all of them with you in the very near future. In the meantime, I want to kick off the warm, happy feeling with this:

For the whole of January, the newly released TRIAL RUN will drop to 99 cents on all sites, and I have made the first in the series, the novella NOT JULIET, permanently #FREE. You can find it free on all sites except Amazon, which is dragging its feet. Feel free to report me for selling it elsewhere at a lower price – maybe that way Amazon will get the message. I include links alongside each cover, below.

You know as much as I do how beautiful these books are, so what are you waiting for? Go get ’em!

I only ask one thing – if you liked what I wrote, please find the few seconds necessary to leave a quick few words on the sites you bought them from. Let other readers know what you think. It would make my day! What am I saying? It would make my year!

#FREE Alert: The Universe Builders, by Steve LeBel

3d - the universe builders 03 for emailYou want to grab this one, guys. Sheer escapism. Fun, quality and free! What are you waiting for?

Amazon US

Amazon UK


Dive into a humorous fantasy world unlike anything you have imagined. A world of gods and goddesses who build universes for a living. Are they all-powerful and all-knowing? Well, not exactly…

As Bernie graduates from God School, he is thrilled to land his dream job as a builder of universes. His first assignment is to build his own universe. Determined but unsure, bright but without confidence, Bernie forges ahead, only to find problems everywhere. Mysterious asteroids, unexplained volcanoes, shifting continents and more lead him to suspect sabotage. But who could sabotage his universe? Only another god could do that.

It’s god vs. god, guile vs. goodness, where only one of them plays by the rules. Bernie must find a way to outwit his vicious foe. If he fails, it will cost him everything.

A fascinating tale of good vs. evil and a young hero on a journey of self-discovery in an original, humorous, fantastic wrapper.

Review: User Pays, by Tabitha Ormiston-Smith

upFREE on Smashwords

A thinking person’s political parable – short and chilling – showing all-too-clearly the hazards of following political dogma without giving it even the most cursory discerning, intelligent thought.

Very well-written, though too short for me. I would have liked to have seen this story more developed. Perhaps the author may have plans to build on this idea – it certainly has merit, in my view. In this day and age, following doctrines sheep-like is an extravagance humanity simply can’t afford anymore.
