Announcing "Name Your Price" Edition E-Books!

One of the hardest things for an independent author to accomplish is making a name for themselves. Sure, they write books and they put them out there for people to buy. Friends and family might buy a copy of a book and they might read it. But overall, it's a lottery in finding success with lots of sales and unknown readers that in turn buy other books by the author.

There are several ways authors try to improve their sales. They advertise on Facebook and other places for people to buy their book(s). They regularly write on a blog, giving information to potential readers. They're active in the Twitter community. They offer a book for free for a limited time. They keep writing book after book, letting those speak for themselves and be their marketing.

There are a lot of options. And some authors find success with one way of doing it. But most don't. The best books might never be read and the worst can be bestsellers.

I've tried a lot of things over the years to improve my book sales. None have set the world on fire. But does that mean I quit trying?

No way. I keep writing and putting out stories. And I find different ways to market my books.

And that includes today. I've decided to add a section to the site called Name Your Price Edition E-Books. Currently, only The Permanent Man - The Complete First Season is available on the page. But more are to come!

How does it work?

Directly from the page, you can download the book of your choice for free. That's right. No cost. It's yours. They are available in EPUB, MOBI, and PDF formats. Before, during, or after reading the book, you can choose to pay me (through PayPal) the value of the book to you. So, you could not pay me at all. And that's fine. Or you can pay me. That's much better!

Either way, the choice is yours.

I'm doing this as another way to promote my books. The offer is valid only through my site. My hope is that this way of selling the book gives me more exposure over time and eventually leads to loyal readers. And I assume the loyal readers will be those who choose to pay me for the hard work that went in to entertaining them.

So what are you waiting for? The Permanent Man - The Complete First Season is available now. Name your price!

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!


Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
