    News and Events

    Welcome to the January edition of the newsletter.

    Can you believe it's already 2012? In the book world, we definitely live in exciting times with digital growing quickly, but perhaps not quickly enough to replace the decline in traditional paper books. If you subscribe to this newsletter, you're probably an early adopter of electronic fiction. Why not share the love... let your friends know how easy it is to get hooked on eBooks... and their many advantages.

    Off the topic of eBooks, but very much on supporting reading, my friend Wiley Saicheck over at sent me a note about World Book Night... spreading the love of books. If that sounds interesting to you, check it out here:

    Coming in February:

    With the holidays and some back and forth to make it as good as possible, THIRD CONTACT by Kenneth E. Ingle slipped into January, so I'm slipping our next release, my own Nano-Corporate into February. I'm really excited about Nano-Corporate, a near-future thriller set in a world where governments are things of the past. It's not as idylic as you might guess.

    This Month's Release:

    Third Contact by Kenneth E. Ingle cover In early January, we released THIRD CONTACT by Kenneth E. Ingle. The only survivor from a planet destroyed by war, Joshua Penbrook finds and claims an abandoned spaceship, but the original owners accuse him of piracy. His only chance, to become the pirate he's accused of being. THIRD CONTACT is on sale for only $1.00 during its first month of availablility (regular price of $3.99 goes into effect on February 9, 2012). It's available in multiple eBook formats including ePub (Kindle, Kobo, etc.), Kindle, and eReader as well as HTML and PDF for PC reading.
