New Banner and Another Contest!

Posted: March 23, 2010 in Uncategorized

Like the banner? I did it myself. I’m learning how to use Photoshop. Should probably buy a Dummies book about it, but I’m too cheap. I also designed a promotional bookmark. Check it out. Here’s the front:

And here is the back:

Notice a theme? Yeah, I know. I like it, though. Not bad for a first try, right? I’m going to order some today.

OK, now more news. I am giving away the VERY LAST Advance copy of 33 A.D. Not kidding. It’s the last one. I didn’t even keep one for myself. But that’s not the only thing I’m going to give away. I have a few copies of my chapbooks which are limited, riddled with typos, a bit butchered and very cheaply produced by my former publisher. I looked over the copies of the stories I sent him, and it seems he actually ADDED typos. Weird. But oh, well. Here’s a pic:

All told I received 9 of these. Because I am no longer associated with Ghostwriter Publications and I have all my rights back, they are not allowed to sell them anymore, so these should be pretty rare. I am going to hand number and sign my 9 copies (1-9, of course) and give 8 of them away to you guys! (I’m keeping #9 for myself.) You can win one. Yup. AND author Donnie Light has agreed to give away a copy of his book, Dark Justice. Here’s the description:

Back Cover Text:

Galen Morris is running for his life. He does not know his pursuer, or the nature of the thing that follows him relentlessly.

Before he can stop running, he has to understand his pursuer. In order to understand it he has to face it, but only in fleeting moments before he must run again. In his struggle to survive, he knows only one thing for sure – he must run – or die. The answers he desperately needs to survive will be found in a 200-year-old legend about a slave, also running for his life, who seeks justice for the murder of his wife. This justice will not come from a court of law to which slaves had no access, but from something very different indeed.

In a seemingly hopeless struggle to understand and overcome his pursuer, Galen embarks on a cross-country chase in search of help. What he finds are death, lies, and the love of his life.

Dark Justice tells two separate but related tales that come together in an exciting climax where justice is finally served – in a very dark and unusual way.


Donnie even got a blurb from James Rollins! Lucky! 🙂

James Rollins Blurb:

“Few debut novels pack the punch of a seasoned professional, but Dark Justice does just that. Visceral, complex, and riveting, here is a story that spans time and pushes the genre’s boundaries. Kept me reading until the early morning hours.”
–James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle

Here’s the cover:

All you have to do to win these items is leave a comment. Yup! That’s it. I will use to determine the winner. So you don’t have to break into song, spout poetry, or entertain me.

  14. Though I have the Kindle version, would love, LOVE, a print copy. The others are a big bonus too.

      Thanks, Ron. Hey, how are you liking the Kindle version? It took me a bit to get that bold mess straightened out, but it’s fixed now.

  15. 33 A.D. sounds like a really imaginative story. Jesus and vampires, what a brilliant combination. I hope to read it soon and wish you the best of luck with it.
