FREE book, and Ed’s Casual Friday – Books v. Movies

24 Aug

 Two things today. First off, this weekend (Fri-Sun) is the last FREE run for The Sable City, Book One of the Norothian Cycle, via Amazon’s Select program. Really, Select has been great for me for getting more readers to the series, but to every thing there is a season, and I figure I should nose back onto the other platforms as well. Many thanks to all who got the book on Kindle, and started down Tilda Lanai’s trail and tale. 🙂

Second off…why does nobody say “second off?” But apart from that, Ed’s Casual Friday column today over at Indies Unlimited consists of some of my thoughts on the whole “the books is always better than the movie” thing, and why I think that is increasingly less true the more “cinematic” writers try to write their books.

Thanks always for reading. – Ed

    Hi Ed just wanted to let you know that I just got an email from Amazon about books I might be interested and three of yours were at the top of the list! Don’t know what you did but this is great promotion. 🙂

    The other thing I wanted to tell you was that I’m setting up a new blog specifically to help both authors and readers. The idea is that authors get to showcase their bio and books in exchange for sharing their favourite books with readers. So if someone’s read and liked the Norothian cycle they can click on your ‘post’ to find out which books you like to read. It’s a sort of recommendation process based on trusting a particular author above some unknown reviewer.

    The blog is still at the dummy info stage but this should give you an idea of how it will work.

    If you’d like to be a part of it could you let me know?

      Sure, sounds great. Though I just realized, I’m not sure how to contact you? Went through old emails but I can’t remember if I ever had your address, as such. Anyway, feel free to drop me a line at (removed later), that’s probably the surest way. 🙂
