New Computer

So sorry to all my friends and acquaintances to whom I've made no comments on their blogs and Facebook pages and stuff. For about a week now I've been using my old back-up computer and have been online very little (mostly to check email). The old mac finally died. After hoping to get it fixed, I was convinced it made more sense to let it die and invest in a new one. Twist my arm on that. Now just waiting for the backup to complete itself. So slow, or am I that impatient? I'm on day 2.  I guess that'll teach me for having about 60 gig of music to transfer. Maybe, just maybe, I'll do some outside work for a change. Soon, when all my files are loaded, I'll be back in full swing.

Edging Past Reality update

Due to a number of circumstances, the paper version of Edging Past Reality has ceased publication. If you check the Amazon page, you will see that there are still some places offering it for mind-pukingly outrageous prices. I just about fell out of my chair when I saw - from $67.11 to $172.54 (used copies $8.99 (not complaining about that) up to $67.12)!

I assure you I had no say, nor do I receive any profit from their greed. If anyone still wants a paper copy, let me know ~ I've got a box-and-a-half worth sitting in my office ~ and I promise not to charge more than face value. I'll even sign 'em so they might be worth something when I cease to publicate (Did I just make up a new word?).

I want to thank all of you wonderful readers who made EPR such a success. Just to keep you informed, I'm working on a new collection of short stories that will hopefully be ready for publication sometime this fall.  Oh yeah ~ and for those of you with e-readers - EPR is still available as a download.

Edging Past Reality ~ A reality check

This past Thursday and Friday, Edging Past Reality was free for download on Amazon.com. More than 1800 people took advantage of the promotion. For a brief time EPR was pushed  to #1 in the horror/ghost category on Kindle's list and #2 in their short stories category. A giant and most humbling THANK YOU!

It finally happened ~Today and tomorrow ~ Edging Past Reality is available as a free download at http://www.amazon.com/Edging-Past-Reality-collection-ebook/dp/B001U89OV2/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2

I just wanted to let my faithful readers know that Edging Past Reality is now officially out of print. That means, whatever is left on the bookstore shelves, or available on-line, is it ~ they won't be reordered  (at least for now). The good news is, for those who may want a real copy to hold, I do have a number of copies at home that can still be ordered through my website (even autographed). For those with e-readers, EPR will remain available for download at Amazon (hint, hint ~ I will be having a free download couple of days coming soon ~ I'll be sure to let you know through Facebook, Twitter, and some other sites, including right here).

Just to let you know pt. 2 ~ I'm working on a new collection of short stories of speculative fiction. I'm hoping that it will be ready for release by this fall.

Thank you all for your support and comments.
