Book Love: Giving away a Kindle Fire and a Stack of eBooks


We love books at the Writer's Colony in the virtual world of Nara's Nook.

Greyville Writer's Colony at Nara's Nook.



I think the stack of books of books you see in this video might be dwarfed by the one I'm teaming up with Tibby Armstrong and a group of other authors to give away. Tibby is adding a Kindle Fire to the prizes you can win in this giveaway. I'm contributing a copy of The Tiger's Tale.

A few years ago Tibby talked me into logging into my first virtual world. Today I have my own grid for virtual worlds and authors who use them to inspire their writing and promote their books.  So big hugs to Tibby for taking time to get me started and please click the link to the giveaway to see how to get your name in the running to win prizes.

Back at the Keyboard Again



More accurately, I am back in production again. Writers never stop writing, but I did have to stop releasing books for awhile. My works in progress were tied to the Pantherian Tales series, Passions Portal, and the Games 4 Love series. The first few books in those series were all with the same publisher and that publisher was in trouble in a number of ways which brought books sales for many authors to a halt. With things going nowhere I requested rights be returned so I could find another publisher or re-release the books and continue the projects as an independent author.  Unfortunately, while I could write while waiting for rights back, publishing anything would have put me at risk of losing my chance to regain control of those works.

So I drafted new work for some 18 months and waited. The wait is over.  






The Tiger's Tale is up for sale again. Just click through the book page. to see the blurb and excerpt. You'll find a buy ling there. It should show up at the major e-tailers over the next few weeks.

In other news I've launched this:
