In which I am charmingly incompetent

mblile-72dpi-1500x2000First, an oops moment: my book Balremesh and other stories has been free on Amazon since this morning, and will continue to be free until sometime late Monday night, and I, dedicated to my career as I am, completely forgot to mention it to anyone until just now.  So, uh, there’s some cool stuff in there?  And you should probably go snap it up, and then tell everyone you know to also go download it.  I haven’t had a free giveaway in a while, so I’m sure you’ve made some new friends since then, right?

I am absurdly tired right now.  It has not actually been a bad week by any objective standard; I’ve been busy, like I always am, but not to the point where I should be getting home at 4:45 seriously considering going straight to bed without dinner, which is what happened tonight.  Of course, it’s 8:00 right now, because I had to spend a couple of hours working on a training I’m doing tomorrow (which I’ve known about for weeks and haven’t managed to have ready yet) and now I’m blogging and if I get really nuts it’s possible that I’ll finally get a Goodreads page up for Click tonight.

(There is no chance of that happening.)

I dunno, maybe I’ve got a low-grade flu or something.  I had a flu shot, and I’m in Mainline Vitamin C All the Goddamn Time mode since it’s fall, but stuff sneaks through, y’know?  But man, the last time I was this tired all the time was back when I was going on brain drugs for the first time.  And I swear I am on no unorthodox medication of any kind at the moment.  I’m just begging for sweet oblivion.

By which I mean sleep, of course, not death.

Anyway, like I said, go grab a free book.


I realized a bit too late that my Kindle Direct term was about to run out and I hadn’t used all of my free days, so a bunch of my books are going to be free for the next few days.  In particular, I just discovered Benevolence Archives, Vol. 1 is #2 on Amazon for free science fiction anthologies, which seemed important enough to put it on blast on every social media outlet I have.  So forgive me if you’ve seen this four times in the last few minutes, but if you were to want to download that book right now or tell your friends to, seeing my book at #1 would be kinda awesome.


It is cold and snowing like the wrath of God outside

…so you may be interested to learn that BENEVOLENCE ARCHIVES Vol. 1 and THE SANCTUM OF THE SPHERE are both free ebooks at Amazon through Sunday.  It’s a good weekend to spend inside reading, yes?

More later, but I figured I’d make sure this was out there.

Oh well, whatever, nevermind

If I let even a single syllable of what’s been running through my head the past couple of days out and onto a screen, I’mma have the fucking Secret Service at my door, and I don’t need that kind of aggravation right now.  So instead all of my books are free this weekend— including Balremesh and other stories, for the first time–and here’s a picture of a kitten.


(Also, if you’ve read any of my books, especially Balremesh, I am explicitly and openly begging for reviews right now.  Seriously.  Please.)

Still a couple hours left!

Other than that, well… I just watched the first episode of Season 2 of Fear the Walking Dead, and the show’s still kinda bad.  And my wife’s leaving town tomorrow for almost a week, so the descent into anarchy around here will likely be both swift and thorough.

How’s your weekend going?
