After quite a while resting on my more or less laurels (past listings) it's time to get a move on and put up some more listings. My goal is five books every day from now on. This should be achievable, but not according to my past performance.

These books get listed in three places: on Amazon, Biblio, and Half. Books without ISBNs (older books) generally will not be listed on half. My prices might vary between these three places. Amazon and Half tell me competing prices, so I peg mine on them. Thus, if the lowest price for Deadly Percheron is $98 on Amazon, I might peg mine at $95. If it weren't my only copy maybe I'd be more reasonable. In fact, I think my Biblio listing is more reasonable.

Going forward (and possibly backward), links to titles of books will send you to the main Amazon listing. My listing will be somewhere amidst the other maybe 237 listings. This is where my photo of the book can be seen, which will probably be a better one than the one Amazon features. Half doesn't let me attach my own photo—at least I don't think it does. Photos are also at biblio. Lots of older listings still don't have photos. Nor updated prices.

I've been lousy at selling direct via email. Sorry about that, if you've tried me. Listing through the major portals keeps me honest—also prompt and reliable.

word from Earthling

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 10/2/07
haunted forest tour The third novel in Earthling's popular Halloween Series, THE HAUNTED FOREST TOUR is published! Copies arrived last night and after numbering them and figuring out who gets which copy, I'll begin sending them out later this week and should have them all shipped by the end of next week.

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY called TOUR "an extreme horror extravaganza that unfolds like an exhibit at the supernatural theme park in which it's set." An upcoming GOREZONE review will state: "...over two hundred pages of non stop, in your face, gore drenched will be exhausted by the time you reach the satisfying last page...Think Jurassic Park with bloodthirsty demons on an adrenaline rush and you have THE HAUNTED FOREST TOUR." And HORROR WORLD said this: "For the third volume of Earthling's Halloween Series, Strand and Moore unleash this frightening and high-octane tale. So grab your favorite blanket, pour a cup of that warm cider, make sure the candle is lit in the Jack-O-Lantern, and settle in with the perfect novel for a cool autumn night."
