Next update POSTPONED TO JUNE 12

Sadly, my Spurs are out of the NBA playoffs… but at least A Minor Malevolent Spirit and Other Tales is on sale now!

Well, it’s on sale at the Amazon Kindle store for 3.99. It’s going to be a couple more weeks before it’s available on other ebook formats, and it will probably be about the same time for the print version (which will be 7.99). Just go to the STORIES page on my website to learn all about this 10-story collection of fantasy, horror and sci-fi tales… or read an excerpt here!

I’m already seeing some sales coming in, but so far no reviews… though it’s only been 1 day, so I guess that’s to be expected. In a few weeks – once the print version and other ebook formats are available – I’ll be holding a little post-release contest to thank all the fans who bought a copy of the book! Not sure of all the details yet, but I’m thinking I’ll do something where anyone who posts a review (on Amazon, Goodreads or wherever!) will be entered into a random draw for some cool prizes. I’ll be sure to let everyone know all the details in my next update.

Until then, I’ve got some interviews and podcasts scheduled; I’ll be mentioning those on my Twitter feed as they go live. And I’ve got family coming to visit next week – my Mom and my cousin are coming down from Canada to see us in Texas! Of course, the forecast calls for rain every day they are here. I know we’re in a drought, so I shouldn’t complain, but I always feel like folks don’t get the real Texas experience if it isn’t HOT when they come to visit.

And tomorrow (Saturday, May 16), I’ll be at the Igo Library in San Antonio for Star Wars Reads Day. I’ll be chatting with fans, taking photos and signing books, games or anything else people want me to scribble my name on. I’m also going to bring a few goodies along to hand out. You can click on the link above, or you can find all the details here:

Well, I guess that’s it for this update. See you in a few weeks, with a cool contest for you to win stuff and things! Go, Spurs, go! Oh, wait… never mind. 🙁
