Buy The Stars Were Right Now for 99¢ and Give Back

The Stars Were Right 99¢ Give Back Promotion Ends Today!

It feels weird promoting this in light of everything that’s happened over the last few days, but here we are. Pretty much what the title says—today is the last day you can buy my weird little Lovecraftian urban fantasy novel, The Stars Were Right, for only 99¢—all the profits will be donated to the World Central Kitchen in their fight against food insecurity here in America and abroad. I’ll reveal the results tomorrow! (They’re quite exciting.)

Links to purchase the ebook are below. Already have a copy? Consider buying one for your friends or a family member who might want a little escapism right now.


Kindle • Kobo • Nook • Apple Books• Google Play • Gumroad


I am also aware that many are facing severe economic instability. One in four Americans is out of work. For them, perhaps you, money is tight. If your interested in reading my book but can’t swing the 99¢, you can also download the book for free. (I’m serious.) Use the Gumroad link above and set the price at zero and bam, it’s yours. On me. Like the promotion, this will also end tonight. So don’t delay!


What if I want to help, but really don’t want an eBook?

No pressure! If you want to help but aren’t interested in my book, you can donate directly to the WCK by clicking the link below. They have options for a single donation, or you can become a monthly donor. It’s a phenomenal charity which I detailed in this post.

Want to help in other ways? Follow the WCK on social media, they’re very active on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook, and you can get a glimpse at the noble work they’re doing. Want to volunteer? Details on how you can help are available here.

Buy The Stars Were Right for 99¢ and Give Back

If you’re at all like me, chances are you could use a little escapism these days. Something to pull you away from refreshing news feeds and doomscrolling through social media all day. Perhaps I can help?


Let’s Give Back

For the next thirty days I’ve dropped the eBook price of my urban fantasy novel The Stars Were Right down to 99¢ everywhere it’s sold. Unfortunately, that’s as low as retailers will let me go, but let’s turn that into something useful. Along with the price reduction, I’ll be donating 100% of the profits to the World Central Kitchen who is working to safely distribute fresh, individually packaged meals in communities that need help. It’s an incredible charity that has become vital in recent days, and it’s one I’m proud to support. So, no matter where you buy The Stars Were Right, you get a bit of escapism, and together we help feed those in need during this time of crisis. Not a bad deal, right?

You can buy the eBook from any of the retailers listed below. Want to help me give more to the World Central Kitchen? Use Gumroad and name your price—100% of the earnings will be donated at the end of the promotion.


KindleKobo Nook Apple Books Google Play Gumroad


Don’t have 99¢? Get the book anyway. (Seriously.)

I realize as I put this book on sale, an astronomical number of people have lost their jobs over the last few weeks. To those folks, even 99¢ can seem like a lot to swing for a piece of entertainment. So, if you can’t afford to buy the book right now, you can download it for free. Use the Gumroad link above and set the price at zero and bam, it’s yours.


We’re all in this together. Stay home. Stay healthy. Let’s flatten the curve. 

I hope you enjoy losing yourself in a book for a bit.

Gifting My Books for the 2018 Holidays

Gifting My Books for the 2019 Holidays

It’s been a bit of an odd year, and strangely, Thanksgiving is tomorrow. And somehow I’m in Hawaii for the holiday? (I’m not complaining, mind.) Despite the 80º weather outside once again, the holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to answer questions about how you can acquire my books for yourself, friends, or family. Much of this remains the same as last year, but there are a few small differences. As always, I break it down into signed paperbacks, regular paperbacks, and gifting ebooks.


Want Signed or Personalized Books?

🖋 Want Signed/Personalized Books?

Order from my store where I sell and ship signed and personalized books. The 2019 deadline to order is December 11th, which is a Wednesday. Any orders beyond December 11th might not get to you in time. (I ship via media mail, and the estimate for that is anywhere from two to ten days.) Remember, this is for US residents only. Shipping internationally is much more complex, and I cannot guarantee Christmas arrival. (Want to work out a different shipping method? Contact me and we can talk.)

I sign everything from my shop, but if you want your books personalized, make sure to leave me a note in the “Notes or Instructions” field during checkout. That’s it! Just click the button below and start shopping.

[Note: Due to my personal travel schedule. Order placed between November 27th and December 4th will ship December 6th.]

The Bell Forging Cycle

Buy My Books, Leave Reviews, and Tell Your Friends

I’m nearing the end of draft zero for Gleam Upon the Waves, (note the significant update to the tracker in the sidebar) and as a result, I’ve been thinking a lot about the Bell Forging Cycle as a whole. I’m immensely proud of the series so far, and I think you’ll be surprised where it’s about to go.

I don’t do nearly enough self-promotion these days—mainly because I find self-promotion boring and I like to keep the stuff I post here as interesting as possible. But occasionally I feel it’s important for me to remind everyone that I write rad books and you can buy them pretty much anywhere. It would be swell if you did. It supports me, my work, and the series.

To make it as easy as possible I’ve included direct links to purchase below.

If you’ve bought and read my books, please take five minutes and drop me a review on Amazon or Goodreads—positive or critical. Reviews help me out a lot, and they help out your fellow weird-fiction readers as well. It’s one of the most beneficial things you can do to aid a writer, novel, or series you appreciate.

Be sure to spread the word by telling your friends about my books as well. (Heck, send ’em a link to this post.) Post about them on social media. Share links on Reddit. Talk about them on your blog. Word of mouth is the best way to assure the success of the stuff you love. That goes for me and my work as well as anything else you appreciate.

If you have already read, reviewed, and spread the message of my series: thanks! You’re helping make these books possible and you’re the reason I’m able to write the next book in the series. I’m excited to wrap up Gleam and get it in your hands as soon as I can, it’ll be worth the wait.
