Spent a few days in Big Sur country California. A little hiking and a lot of food and wine. There might not be a more impressive place on Earth. It's a crucible of nature. The ocean, the mountains, and the land in between. The vegetation goes from dry and stunted to lush and green.
Most impressive were the redwood groves. Dark and shadowy places where you lose sight of what towers so high above you. The groves transport you in time and make you respect nature in a way most Midwesterners don't understand. We live in a control and confined nature in the Midwest. The land has been scoured and scraped of its true self. I recommend a visit to Big Sur to wake your senses up to the beauty of what surrounds you.

Paris. WOW! My family and I are enjoying the end of summer in Paris and the Bordeaux coast. The two free book promos from last week have been fantastic. Nearly 3000 books given away and a steady stream of return customers for Books 2 and 3.
When I return from France it will be time to plunge headlong into the final rewrite of Book 4, the conclusion.

After one and a half days, the Giveaway Promo for BOOK I of THE SERAPHINIUM has been a tremendous success. Currently, we've moved over 700 books to the reading public and watched the ranks of all three of the released Seraphinium books soar.
BOOK I in particular shot up the Amazon charts peaking around the 290th overall Kindle book.
Additionally, BOOK I rose to #16 on the Kindle Free Fantasy Novels chart and #4 on the Kindle Free Epic Fantasy Novels chart.
Getting the books to the public is only step one. Hopefully, they read and enjoy them, returning later to purchase more in the series and write reviews.
Good reading to all.

Now that's a long time between posts!
Finally raining like hell here in the Midwest. We sure do need it.
Well, tomorrow is the day. I expect a small box to appear on my stoop with 5 shiny copies of The Merchant and the Menace inside. I finally bit the bullet and forced my lazy butt to get some hard copies printed out on CreateSpace.
So, after howling at the moon-swinging a dead chicken over my head-mumbling incantations to Jeff Bezos and sacrificing many PDF files on the Amazon altar, I have 5 proofs arriving.
Hopefully, they are flawless and I can approve the sale of paperbacks.
We shall see.
