This is just a quick little post to tell you about a new program Amazon is doing. It’s called Kindle MatchBook, and it’s pretty cool for those of us who like to read both at home and on the go.
The upshot of the Kindle MatchBook program is, if you buy a paperback on Amazon, you can get the Kindle Edition of the same book for a discount. In the case of Frostwalker, I’ve set that discount to 100%, meaning that those who buy Frostwalker in paperback through Amazon can get the Kindle Edition for FREE!
Also, if you’ve already purchased a paperback copy of Frostwalker through Amazon, you should be able to get the Kindle Edition for free as well. By the way, Kindle isn’t just for Kindle devices – there are freeKindle apps for PC’s and other platforms as well!
Cirque du Lune is killing off teenagers, but it’s all part of the act.
Or is it?
As the body count rises with each performance, one girl at this infamous theater-based summer finds herself contemplating what’s real and what’s not.
What if it’s not just a horror show, but a live snuff performance? What if the murders . . . are real?

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post here about what I’ve been up to. Aside from cover reveals and such for fellow authors, I’ve been kind of quiet. However, I’ve not been entirely idle!
For one thing, work continues on A Man With A Gun. It’s been an unusual experience, as it’s been really difficult to stay on task. I’m 10,000 words into the story and I’m still not sure exactly where it’s going. I still think it’s going to finish up as a beefy short story or possibly a novella, but it keeps surprising me.
Aside from that, another project I’ve been working on for quite some time is the media kit for Frostwalker. I think I may have that nearly wrapped up. One of the more difficult tasks involved in building the media kit was creating the sell sheet for the book. For those who don’t know, a sell sheet is kind of a poster or flyer with information about the book. While it can be used to promote the book to potential readers, a sell sheet is typically directed at book retailers and distributors.
Those who follow me on Facebook or Twitter may have already seen this. But, given my lack of graphic design skills, I’m rather happy with what I’ve managed to create, so I’m going to show it off here as well. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it – take a look! (You can click the image to see it full size – it’s rather huge, as it’s intended to be used for both digital and print purposes.)
Do feel free to share the image with your friends!
My friend and fellow author J. Scott Sharp is just about to release his next work! This new novella is set to be a real page-turner and I can’t wait to read it myself! I’m very happy to take part in the cover reveal for this new story. Jason is an excellent friend, and a terrific writer. Come take a look!
