"Common and Precious" on Amazon!

Hey, all! My book is now on Amazon! Even if you already bought it (thank you!), it’d really help if you’d go and review it–doesn’t have to be in-depth, but every little bit of feedback helps. Also tagging it to show up in certain searches would be helpful if you have time and want to play around with it. Anything to get more eyes on it.

Thanks! And hey, if you’re looking for a good Christmas gift for someone who loves to read … :)

On Location In Chicago

We’re leaving tomorrow night for our annual convention in Chicago, and not only will I be in the dealer’s room signing books, I’ll also be on a couple panels. Sunday at noon, I’ll be participating in “Keeping Your Motivation And Inspiration” with several other writers, including GOH Will Sanborn and fellow Bay Area scribe Kevin Frane. At one, in the same room, I’ll be joined by Kevin for a Sofawolf preview reading. He’ll be reading from his excellent upcoming novel, “Thousand Leaves.” I don’t have an upcoming novel, so I’ll be reading from Kyell Gold’s new book, “Waterways.”

I intend to keep blogging from Chicago, even if the entries are short. There’ll be plenty to write about while we’re there. Weather’s supposed to be chilly but nice, and I’m looking forward to seeing my family and the usual cast of convention characters.

In other news, I started the process today to get a bunch more of Sofawolf’s books up on Amazon, including New Fables and “Common and Precious.” A lot of people had asked when C&P would be available there, and the answer now is “in a week or two.” When the listing does come up, I will make another announcement here, and if you read and liked the book, please go to Amazon and leave a review. The more feedback, the better. Maybe once it’s up, I’ll get a short or two from that world up on Amazon shorts. I owe them a story–although Jeff has been talking about doing another New Tibet anthology, and of course I want to write the “Graveyard Shift” novel (a sort of prequel to “Common and Precious”). But those projects are a year or more out–and believe me, that’s as frustrating for me as it is for you.
