It’s also the beginning of the month, so I have a new Hot Flash for you. I’ve also put a Flashbacks tab in the Hot Flashes menu, to make it easier to navigate to previous years’ Hot Flashes.
Echelon, publisher of FORCE OF HABIT, plans to raise the price from $2.99 to $4.99. The last time I checked, Amazon had not yet bumped the price, so get ‘er cheap while you can. If you would like to see this book in print, there’s a link on the Amazon page to notify the publisher of your desire.
From the Department of Don’t Break Your Arm Patting Yourself On The Back, here are some excerpts from reviews:
“Allen weaves a wonderful story and world that will have you groaning and laughing at the antics of her characters, who each take on a life of their own within the stories.”
“A quick and delightful read. Like Marian Allen’s other book, Eel’s Reverence, this book leaves us wanting more. Highly recommended.”
“By giving the reader accessible aliens, Allen paves the way for a delightfully quirky romp through bureaucracy, inter-galactic relations and social customs. Wordplay and innuendo spice up an already tasty book – even the title is a clever pun!”
“If you enjoy Star Trek, Douglas Adams’ Hitchhikers Guide series, or any other lighthearted science fiction, then Force of Habit should be right up your alley.”
Wow! I’d like to read that book, myself! Er, I mean, there you go.
