Blitzkrieg!!! On July 27th-28th the history of the written word will take a diversionary path from which it may never recover, and you can be a part of it. It's an Amazon Blitz, baby. [tent fingers diabolically while listening to "Ballroom Blitz" by The Sweet]

The Amazon Kindle store uses highly trained algorithmical bots to scour the site daily and adjust statistics according to popularity, and thus profitability to Amazon. When a book sells lots of copies in a short period of time, said book moves quickly up the Amazon rankings. Why, you may ask is this important? Basically, Amazon assumes that popularity is a good way to sift the best books from the chattel and give those books more promotional space on the site, thus increasing sales and profit.

Buy your Fistful of Reefer on July 27th-28th!


You guessed it, increased profit to Amazon, in the case of Fistful of Reefer, means increased profit for me and my family as well! It might be a couple years before I can hope to break the top rankings overall, but Amazon breaks things down into genre. If I can reach the top 10 in the smaller genre charts then this could mean hundreds of more sales.

So, if you plan on buying a copy of Fistful, then please do so on July 28th (or quickly thereafter). If all of you buy your $2.99 copy within a 24 to 48 hour period Amazon will see the blip. For once algorithms are my friend!

For those of you without an e-reader or smartphone on which to read Fistful of Reefer, Kindle has a free reader for your computer. And if you would prefer, just let me know and I can email you a .PDF version. So buy the ebook at Amazon and I'll make sure you can read it in a way that is best for you. Leave a comment here, and I'll get right back to you.

The Secret Notebook of Michael Faraday, my second novel in the Airship Flamel Advenstures Series is now available!

The book is a prequel to my first novel To Rule the Skies, although I think of it more as just coming first chronologically.  It follows the main character from my previous novel, Nicodemus Boffin, from his boyhood to about a decade before the events in To Rule the Skies.The synopsis:Nicodemus Boffin, a uncommonly clever boy…See More
