 It's launching TODAY!

It's finally here! Launch day! My novel "Necessary Lies" is being released today.

For a very limited time, the Kindle version is FREE on the Amazon site, Or the UK site, or even in Soviet Canuckistan.

Don't have a Kindle? There's a free app for that which runs on most any kind of computer, tablet, or smart phone.

In a few days the price will go back to $0.99, which is still a great deal. There will be a paperback edition in a week or two, when we get the cover squared away. 

If you like it, please leave a review on Amazon, or there's also a page on Goodreads.

What if...

 What if your marriage were only valid on one side of the state border? Where, for economic reasons, you have to live to be in commuting distance to both jobs.

What if there's a kid who needs medical attention, but is not legally related to one of her parents?

What if they told you you could never have children of your own, but... well, maybe there's a way?

Work hard, do your homework, cheat a little when you have to. Make it look easy, make it look like everybody else.

My novel "Necessary Lies" is available NOW! Come read what I did with all these what-ifs.

Cover art shows two women sitting stiffly on a park bench, looking across the river to where their live together once was.

I promise it's at the top of my (much-neglected) fiction list.

I'm all over a physical copy by clock (4.00 / 1) #3 Mon Feb 19, 2018 at 09:27:32 AM EST
I like my HuSi authors on paper. Congrats on getting it out there! That's an achievement in and of itself worth celebrating!

I agree with clock entirely --Kellnerin

...I hope. I don't want to bug the artist who's doing the cover too much...

Or get rabies. Also don't do that. --scrymarch

It was free for about 3 days, during which I gave away 202 copies and climbed the rankings. Now at $0.99 for a while, and it's ranked in several categories.

If you're interested in my self-publishing coach, I can hook you up. This guy knows what he's talking about.

Today's job: poke the cover artist and see how the paperback is coming. I think she'll be thrilled by the performance of the book so far.

For you to do: If you're reading the book, please post a review when you're done. They're very helpful.

I'm reading it on a screen by 256 (4.00 / 1) #7 Thu Feb 22, 2018 at 10:02:45 PM EST
Which is a concession I make for very few works.

Thanks! by ana (2.00 / 0) #8 Sun Feb 25, 2018 at 06:36:38 PM EST
I'm honored.

If you have a paragraph or two worth of stuff to say about it, I'd appreciate a review on the Mothership. There are places that'll help with the publicity for books under a dollar (US) with 10 or more reviews. I'm at seven and counting...

And of course I'm happy to talk about anything you found interesting, here or elsewhere.
