Default "Pinball"

I am proud (and a little bit shellshocked) to announce that my first published novel, Pinball, is now available for Amazon Kindle. Please buy a copy; I haven't had anything to eat for three weeks except dried up pieces of American cheese and canned Popeye's spinach. No, I'm just kidding, but I really would appreciate it if you'd buy it and read it.

This is the one I read first draft on a few years back, isn't it?

Eventually, yes. My contract with Amazon requires that it be available exclusively on Kindle for a minimum of 90 days. At some point after that, I'll make it available in other formats: Nook, dead trees, etc.

Awesome!
I don't have a kindle and WAY prefer to read the dead tree version (although dead hemp would be SO much better, environmentally) over electronic forms.

It works out that it'll be a little while.
I've yet to begin reading Haven and Hope, plus I have another book by a friend of the family to read as well.

Just an FYI: a proof copy of the paperback edition is on its way to me as we speak. As soon as I have a chance to look it over and approve it, it'll be available for those of you who prefer the old-style "dead trees" format.

Sweet!
I have it bookmarked so I can add it to my "wish list" later.
SO awesome to see it in print form!!!

(Y'know, if they'd fuckin legalize marijuana, we could be reading this on dead hemp instead of dead trees. But I digress... glad to see the print version out there! I'll be sure to get it at some point soon!)

I was rather pleased to note today while checking my Amazon sales reports that, aside from my domestic sales, I have had sales to persons in the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, and Canada.

Got your copy yet?
