Update on Audiobooks and Podcast

So, as many of you might have noticed, we occasionally produce audiobooks through ArtisticWhispers Productions. Those of you that have may have also noticed that we haven’t put a new one out (or, at least, anything resembling a complete one) in about two years. The hiatus is over. As of …

Released: Throwing Lead

You heard about it here eighteen months ago when the project first started, now it’s done. I am pleased at long last to announce the release of Throwing Lead: A Writer’s Guide to Firearms (and the People Who Use Them). Here’s the back-of-book copy: While they may be an indispensable …

Released: Silent Victor (Lantham #4)

Ladies and gentlemen and those who prefer neither title, I am very proud to announce the continuation of The Clarke Lantham Mysteries. This is the biggest one yet, ringing in at nearly the same length as Predestination, and the adventure scales with the book. Teaming up with his assistant Rachael …

The Blackout: Letter to a Senator (or Two)

Warning: Politics For those of you following the SOPA/PIPA to-do, be warned: if you live in California, both of your Senators are flogging hard for this thing. Because of that, for these two characters I actually wrote a note rather than just calling, tweeting, or petitioning. In case you want …

Why the Flight to Amazon?

Released: Down From Ten

I’ve been waiting for this day a long time. When I first wrote Down From Ten as a screenplay, a production company in Canada was going to be handling rights clearances for the Alan Jay Lerner music incorporated into one of the scenes. When I did the podcast, ASCAP was …

Released: Free Will

The time has finally come. The revolution is about to begin. It is my distinct pleasure to announce, at long last, that Free Will, the sequel to Predestination, is now available for all electronic platforms. The Lunar Revolution is faltering, events are spinning out of control, and Bill Shelley is …

But I Already Have a Publisher…

We all know that adventurous types like Joe Konrath, and established types like Kris Rusch, and insanely successful types like J.K. Rowling have been having a ball publishing ebooks on their own–and we know that weirdos like me are going to do it because we’re maverick by nature and like …

The Dam Breaks

We’ve been waiting for it. We’ve been talking about “What will happen if/when?” We’ve speculated ho how it will change things when the mythical species arrives: The $99 e-reader. Well, now we get to find out. Today, Amazon unveiled the $79 Kindle, as well as a $99 model. Don’t take …
