Thanksgiving ‘Give-away’

sci-fi detective noir
My alter-ego staring down the bad guys.

Exciting news! The Kindle version of Aliens, Spaceships and the Occasional Latte is going on sale for 99 cents! Okay, maybe that’s not exactly a free give-away as the blog title might suggest, but I thought the title was catchy, and it is still almost a give-away. Cheaper than a Latte, that’s for sure.

The promotion will be on November 18 and then again the 25th, featured on Booksends and Bargain Booksy.

 

 

 

Summer Fun 2018 Promos

Summer fun

I’ve got a promo running this month for a couple of my books, The Girl With No Shoes and Aliens, Spaceships and the Occasional Latte. The picture to the left with the cute pink flip-flops has nothing to do with anything, but I like it for its winsome cheerfulness.

The fun starts this week. I’m giving away the Kindle version of The Girl With No Shoes for free, from August 6 to 9. You can download it from Amazon here. After that, it goes on sale for 99 cents for the rest of the month.

Aliens, Spaceships and the Occasional Latte will be free (Kindle version) starting August 7 through to the 11th. Then it goes on sale for 99 cents to the end of the month or longer if the promo is going well. Download it from Amazon here.

Be sure to get your copy! I hope you enjoy the books as much as I loved writing them.

 

Coffee to Go, With a Spaceship now in paperback

Coffee to Go
Book 2 in the Jack Winters adventures

A paperback version of ‘Coffee To Go’ is now available, however it may be a few more days or weeks before Amazon has them linked together in all markets. If you search on the title, you will still see them listed separately. I’m told by the folks at Amazon that it sometimes takes a week or so before their automated algorithms link the two.

The paperback version has a different cover, and you may ask why… well, since you are asking, the answer is simple. Economics. All publishers operate on a budget for each title they publish, and indie publishers like myself are no different. Print versions represent a very small fraction of over all sales. In fact, I basically produce a print version to make it easier to give copies away to friends and family, and I probably give more paperbacks away than are sold. So since the bulk of my sales are digital downloads, that is where I decided to spend my money on the cover.

It’s kind of crazy how much extra it costs to get a paperback version of the same cover art, so I made the executive decision to make my own cover for the paperback and use the free images available.

The sequel to Aliens & Latte is here!

Coffee to Go, With a Spaceship is now available on Amazon! Yeah!

I started on the sequel to Aliens, Spaceships and the Occasional Latte in the spring of 2016. Fans have been asking about it ever since I announced that the 2nd book was in the works, and many of you asked to be put on my mailing list so you’d be notified when it was released.

Well, it’s finally here and available on Amazon for Kindle.

Coffee to Go
Book 2 in the Jack Winters adventures

The title is slightly different than what I had originally announced, but I felt that it was a bit of a mouthful and decided to shorten it.

In this sequel to ‘Aliens, Spaceships and the Occasional Latte’, the alien bounty hunters are back and bent on revenge against Jack. They kidnap his son, Johnnie, and take him to a desolate slave world. Donna accompanies Jack into space on a rescue mission to get Johnnie back, and along the way she learns how to fly a spaceship. With them is Montclair, a little elf-like man from another world who offers the use of his spaceship to go after the bounty-hunters. But Montclair’s generosity comes with a price, and Jack is forced to make some promises he may later regret.

I hope you enjoy the sequel as much as the first one. If you find the time, I’d love to hear from you after you have read it and let me know what you think.

Thanks again for reading my books! Being a writer is so much more fun when there are readers who enjoy it  🙂

And yes, I did leave a huge opening at the end of the 2nd book for a third installment…

Cheers

Mike
