Yeah. It was time. I have a website now.
It’s OK if this does not excite you, it’s not exactly blowing my mind, either. But at least I’ll have somewhere of my own to spout off and jabber at those unfortunate souls who happen to find this place.
So: On to the news!
My short story “Sleeping Giant,” will appear in the forthcoming anthology titled: “The Guardian” due to drop on November 26. Find it here: https://www.amazon.com/Guardian-science-fiction-stories-Anthologies-ebook/dp/B077CMP44M . It’s only $.99, so it’s a nice cheap way to experience a bunch of great indie authors and the worlds they create. Probably the best bang-for-your-buck out there.
Book 3 in ‘The Fixer’ Series-Hammers and Nails will be live on November 21. Please buy it, read it, and leave a review so other people will buy it. That’s how they tell me this author shtick works.
Since some of you have asked, I plan for a total of six books in this series before I move on to other worlds and other stories. But hey, if this series is selling wildly, I’ll stick with it longer. I am not one of those authors who feels that telling their story is more important than telling stories that the readers want to hear. I really hate that, actually. I love to write, and I love to tell stories. But my job is to please the reader, not smugly nod and smile at my own intelligence while those I have engaged to entertain look aghast at what I’ve done. I adhere to the wise words of Gene Simmons on this matter. When asked why KISS did not branch out more artistically over the decades he responded with something along the lines of the following:
“KISS exists to serve it’s customers, not itself. We are like your favorite restaurant. If you went into your favorite restaurant to order your favorite steak, and found out that the place wasn’t doing that anymore, would you ever come back? No. You would not. Well, welcome to your KISS concert. My name is Gene and I’ll be your server tonight. I’d like to recommend the steak.”
Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Andy, and I’ll be your server tonight.
Try the steak.
