Biggest book news: I've succeeded in getting one of my poetry books (King Arthur's Raid on Hell) on the Amazon Kindle store through Lulu. Hopefully the rest of my books will follow over the next couple of months. Smashwords, as much as I like some of their features, has been a total failure in that regard despite two years of unkept promises; apparently Amazon will only take ebooks from them that are already big sellers, which sort of defeats the purpose of the exercise for indies like me. I'm moving the poetry first, since it's never sold much there, but the novels should follow early next year. In the meantime, take a look at King Arthur's Raid.
Oh, and Happy Solstice / Merry Christmas / every other pertinent season's greeting!!!
