Got a Favorite e-Reader?

Headless is probably on it. It's now available on just about every e-reader and most e-book platforms. Several more than it was before actually, and some I had never heard of. In publishing terminology this is called going wide. I tried going exclusive with Amazon Kindle for three months to see what all the hype was... Continue Reading →

Today Headless goes on sale on Amazon UK for the Kindle ebook at only £0.99.

photo by Montse Monmo So far, my KDP Select experience for Headless has not been great. In fact, it hasn't even been good. I did a Kindle Countdown Deal in the US, along with a some Facebook and Instagram advertising, and made three sales. Three. And I’m pretty certain those sales were from people I actually...

photo by Sergey Zolkin Instead of working on the sequel to Headless today, I got bogged down in the wisdom that I should be posting on my blog at least once a week. According to Hugh Howey, it should be every day! Add to that the fact that I have somehow ended up with two... Continue Reading →

That Sinking Feeling

Akio’s Journal – April 13th

I found another one of Akio's journal entries from just a few weeks before the events in Headless. It's kind of personal, but at this point, he's probably okay with me sharing it. Considering all he's been through, I'm sure a little maudlin complaining about a past girlfriend is one of the least of his... Continue Reading →

Let the Beheadings Commence

  You might think this is a post about a new American policy toward immigration, but no… HEADLESS HAS AN OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE.  It will be here very, very soon. Am I nervous? Hell, yes. But extremely excited too. It’s going to be released on that second most terrible day this year when the world... Continue Reading →

Akio’s Journal ~ April 4th

Akio Tsukino at his journal. Everyone thinks I’m stupid. Maybe I am. I try to cover it up with wisecracks and goofing around. But that just makes it worse. Maybe if I was deadly serious all the time. Like Masami. Maybe if I could just focus on my work and tune everyone else out like... Continue Reading →
