Casual Gravity!  

For all of my music lovers out there (and fans of my old band Craving Chaos), I have formed a new rock/pop cover band* called Casual Gravity. We are in the late stages of the building process and expect to be playing out at local venues by mid-December 2014 or early January 2015, at the latest. 

* Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the second book. It's in the works!




Train of Consequences receives its fourth award!

Train of Consequences recieved the Star Award from iUniverse!  The Star Award is the most prestigious award they have!  It is only given to books with exemplary sales and high marketability.  This award is a door opener.  Train of Consequences will now be seen by a wider audience and will have an even higher marketing push.  This push may even include a reissue with a new cover, etc.  This is exciting news and could lead to Train of Consequences catapulting to an even higher level!

Two Pieces of News: Good and Bad

Bad news first:
I regret to inform you that the February 19th book signing in Nashua has been canceled. I received notification from Borders this morning that they are on the list of store closures, pursuant to Borders' bankruptcy filing. Accordingly, the book signing is canceled.  Hopefully some of my Nashua peeps will be able to make it to the February 26th signing in Portsmouth.

Now the good news:
I was recently interviewed by friend and fellow author, L.M. Stull. Her paranormal romance novel, Memoirs of a Monkey, is set for release in the spring.  Until then, you can follow her on Twitter by the handle, @LMStull. Click here to see her interview of me.

Wow!  What a great book signing yesterday.  Barnes & Noble sold out of my books within the first 45 minutes!  We had to bring in a second batch that I luckily had with me, then we sold out of that batch, too!  The store manager there said she hadn't seen a line that long for a local author before.  Thanks to everyone who came out.  It was wonderful to meet so many great new people.

For some reason, Amazon.com isn't showing the hardcover version of the book when you link to it from this site or when you search for it.  For those interested in the hardcover version, just search on Amazon for "train of consequences (hardcover)".  It will appear then.
