Prelude to the Grand Experiment

Hi folks,

Welcome to 2011. I hope Christmas and New Year’s was kind to you and yours, particularly if you’ve been going through a rough patch lately. Me? I’m optimistic about the new year and looking forward to what life has in store!

So much so, I’m planning a major new project: the ‘Grand Experiment’. This year, I’ll be dipping my toes into the e-book world with several titles, which will all be released this month or next. Specifically, I’m targeting Amazon and focussing on the Kindle market.

Why, you ask? Well, my sister Stacey has been raving about her Kindle. She has an unwholesome fascination with the Twilight books (*ugh* but what can you do?), and over Christmas, she told me about her ravenous desire to seek out other, lesser known authors of vampire fiction to sate her disturbing habit. From what I read, Stacey is far from alone in this regard. Well, to Stacey and many of her Kindle-wielding kin out there, I say this: allow me to provide you with some *good* dark fiction to discover rather than all that vampire twaddle.

Following the example of industry leaders like J. A. Konrath, I’ll sporadically document the sales of my e-books and any insights I happen to stumble across. It should be a fun year, and hopefully, a prosperous one!

Before ‘The Grand Experiment’ proper begins, I wanted to remind folks cruising this blog (or my Facebook page) that my one and only Kindle e-book thus far: Phoenix and the Darkness of Wolves is available for the low price of $4.50. It’s good value for a great novella, particularly given the strength of the Aussie dollarĀ (although it’s published by Damnation Books and I have no control over the price), but let me assure you of one thing: my forthcoming e-books will be cheaper (and at different price points) so I can pinpoint exactly what the price sweet-spot is.

If you’re curious or in need of a decent read, grabĀ a copy of Phoenix now. Soon enough, there will be plenty of other books from me to fill your Kindle!
