EagleridgeBluffs CoverRead my books, Not Wonder More, Eagleridge Bluffs and Spirit Bear for free!

For a limited time you can download and read any one, or all three of my novels in the ECO-WARRIOR SERIES free. They include Spirit Bear, Eagleridge Bluffs and Not Wonder More-Mad Maggie and the Mystery of the Ancients.

All you need to do is go to storycartel.com and register. Books are free in exchange for your honest review (see my previous blog for more information). This offer is available for about a month.

If you follow this blog here’s your chance to see if I can actually write or are my rants just sour grapes. Am I a cynical, bitter, nasty, no-talent guy with a giant chip on his shoulder taking cheap shots, or am I an undiscovered literary genius?

It’s likely somewhere in between, well maybe more of the former, but hey, you can decide for yourself, and for free.

Maybe I trashed your book in a review. Here’s your chance to get back at me. Read my books and if you honestly think they’re crap, don’t hold back. A bad review is better than no review (hmm…I’ll get back to you on that).

As you read this, Spirit Bear, Eagleridge Bluffs and Not Wonder More are available now and can be downloaded free.

You have my word the reader reviews you see for my books on Amazon, Goodreads and Barnes and Noble will not be manipulated, paid for, or fraudulent in any way. Frankly, it’s just too much effort for too little gain, and besides what would be the point? You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but how long can you go on fooling yourself?

Have I been fooling myself?

You tell me.

I’m not a very friendly person.

If we attended the same party you’d see standing alone at the edge of an animated group, not contributing. If you thought I looked like I wished I could be someplace else, you’d probably be right.

But being a misanthrope doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate and value comments and criticisms of my work. Insightful comments from strangers have taught me more about writing and photography than anything else.

So please comment and criticize if you wish.

Just don’t expect it to be the beginning of an online relationship.
