Well, as long as you stay a part of the team. :)

I write all sorts of genres, so I will try and send out emails before I release the book (email it out to you), to let you know of which one I'm doing that time. If that particular book isn't of interest (genre-wise) just let me know.


Free (ARC's - advanced reader copies) ebooks before they hit the shelves and others can purchase them.

Weekend Writing Sat - Sun (February 16-17th) Tag #wwab to join in!

All right. Getting going fairly early. Let's see if I can get myself some nice quiet writing time. Everyone has been taken care of and people are still asleep. This weekend, the two that are lowest in word count will be, as usual, the ones I work on. So that means. Saturday will be: DARK ILLUSIONS: THE FINAL CHAPTER and then tomorrow, Sunday, will be HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.

Avoid helping skeezy sales pitchers

The ones who only wish to earn a profit off of you, EVEN if it's not the book they sell, as much as getting money from being a referral. Obviously, if you don't care, or do wish to help them earn money off you--even if it's pennies--feel free to ignore this. I always have you in mind when I do things and can't stand by when people have no moral conduct with which they live by.

(Before I mention, I will be straight up and say that yes, I generally use this method myself because any extra pennies in the feed the animals, or replace the falling down roof fund, helps tremendously. So nobody needs to point out that I do it. I do. You can see it for yourself.)

If someone pitches you a book to check out. And you actually DO want…
