First, Echelon Press, publisher of my comic/sf/cop novel FORCE OF HABIT, is pulling it from everywhere but the Amazon Kindle store. That’s so it can be enrolled in the Kindle Select program and have a run of FIVE FREE DAYS! It’s turning out to be more difficult than anticipated to scrub it from all databases. Meanwhile, Echelon is endeavoring to return it to it’s original price of $2.99, but Amazon is still stubbornly pricing it at $0.99.
That’s less than ONE THIN DOLLAR! Makes a great gift, too!! Yeah, you could check Amazon every day to see if it’s free yet but — ONE DOLLAR? For a whole entire book? Which will make you laugh, maybe? [UPDATE: Too late for the 99 cent price. It just went up to $2.99. Still cheap at the price. Thrills – Laughs – Aliens. Just sayin’.]
Okay, so much for readers. Now, for all you writers out there, go to EditMinion. It is awesome! Just copy and paste some of your text into the box, click on the button, and EditMinion will give you a free instant Rainbow Edit and a score. Too cool.
Finally, and seriously, I’m happy to announce that Becky Sherrick Harks’ Band Back Together is now a federal non-profit organization. If you don’t know The Band, but you have an emotional and/or medical difficulty you want to learn about, vent about, or share support for, head on over and Choose Your Own Adventure. Yay, The Band!
Oh, okay, just one more: Medical Scene Writer says it’s for people who want to write realistic medical scenes, but it’s packed with really cool junk for anybody who thinks really cool junk is … really cool. Like this one, about people with two sets of DNA.
Oh, and HAPPY SOLSTICE!
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Find something really cool at Medical Scene Writer and write a scene or story treatment using it.
