-The Mea Culpa Document of London (medieval macabre), and 
-EarVu (Horror/Sci Fi in the Lab).
And soon the audio book version of - Expedition of the Arcturus 
The Conqueror Worm, The Mea Culpa Document of London, (and soon, Expedition of the Arcturus) are also available as audio books, but are not included int his promotion. Have fun!


I was just looking at some of my stats and rankings on Amazon Author Central. 

In Kindle ebooks I was at 37.014 on April 25th for no apparent reason I can fathom. But hey, thanks! 
Non-Kindle books (print, maybe audio too, I'm not sure) - 113,112. 
All Books - For Sci Fi/Fantasy 4,354. 
All - Fantasy 3,633. 
All - Sci Fi 2,961.

Hmmm if I keep going will I get to #1? lol
Kindle Sci Fi 1,926
Kindle Horror 1,276. This one peaks a lot time and again. My highest number this year was 1,049 on Jan. 14th.

Hmmm... maybe I should write another Horror story. Perhaps a nice tale from my childhood. Or worse, Junior High years and how I was not even wanted by the Freaks and Geeks until High School when I was a leader in the Freak community. lol

I've been watching Freaks and Geeks from 1999/2000. Fun show. In Jr High I wanted to join the Chess Club (Geeks). Not even they wanted me. I could only join if I could beat their best player, they said. Funny how I remember and can see it in the basement where they met, of our Jr High.

Of course, I lost. Really not cool of them (Thanks, Mike Wise who later built a home PC in a wooden foot locker at home back in 1969 or so).

But in their defense (and as with everyone who knew me most of the first half of my life), they just thought I'd screw around and not be serious, focused, or dedicated. They, were wrong. And through my life I've been a not too bad chess player though I'm a bit rusty now. For years I'd only play against non humans after one particularly bad loser's fit of angst when I beat him that put me off playing against people with bad temperaments.
