In the Battle of Mice and Men - Man Will Win!

There's nothing worse than coming to the realization that mice have decided your house is a great place to stay. I can't argue with them on that matter because I like where I live, too. The problem is I didn't invite them and I'm not to fond of freeloaders!
Now I'm on a mission to rid my home of these mice who feel they can squat in my home. I will win this battle. Much like my eBook sales totals I release for all of you to enjoy, I plan on putting up a Mouse Kill total. In fact, I'm placing a widget in the upper right corner to keep track of the kills.
These mice might have been having a great time in my home, but their fun is about to end. Hahahahaha!

Correcting Miscorrection by Jeff Ambrose

Last month, Jeff Ambrose and I had an agreement. We would not check our sales in December, instead waiting until January 1, 2012 to do so. If either of us checked during the month, that person had to write a guest post on the other person's web site. I caved first, lasting only two days before I checked. Jeff made it a little longer, but he still checked, and so I now have a guest post.
If you don't know it already, Jeff had a major impact on the outcome of the Miscorrection stories Panacea, Awry, and Sundown. So, I thought it would be interesting to get his take on his involvement and thoughts on the Miscorrection series. I knew it wouldn't be all roses (or Willows for those of you who are fans of the series), but I didn't care. Jeff obviously ... well, I'm not going to say it. Read on to see his thoughts.
Sometime in late March or early April of 2011, I tweeted how much I hated proofreading my own work. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t do it, and that th…

December 2011 eBook Sales Numbers

The year has ended and 2011 goes into the books as a great year for my eBook sales. In 2010 I sold a whopping six books. In 2011 though, I sold 216.

What's my sales goal for 2012? None really. I plan to write and publish more, but sales are out of my control. Of course, I hope I sell more than 2011. Maybe two to three times 2011's numbers.

For December 2011, Fram Gage and The Infinite Ability continues its rapid selling pace. I am extremely happy with its success. Overall the month was varied with sales. It was a good month, and I look forward to January 2012!
