News From Saltimbanque Books

Hello, all,

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Krazy Kwanzaa, and Happy New Year! It’s that time of year when I send out my good wishes to you all in the form, not of a Christmas card, but of a promotional email. Today I’d like to share a couple of books with you because, after all, ’tis the seadon to be readin’.

First, I have another FREE BOOK PROMOTION. Click for free at to get your ebook copy of my short novel STEWART AND JEAN: “A blind date between Stewart and Jean explodes into a confrontation from the past when Jean realizes that Stewart is the brother of the man who once tried to rape her. Or is she the woman who murdered his brother? And will anyone ever know for sure?”

I’m proud of this little book and would like to get more eyes on it. Also, of all the things I’ve written, it’s my fiancée Mary’s favorite. And if you look on the Amazon page, you’ll see that it has two five-star reviews (full disclosure: one is from my mother). I’d like to get that up to, oh, say, fifty reviews, because at that point Amazon theoretically notices and the site itself begins doing some promotional work. So if you do download the book and find the time to read it, I hope you’ll have the chance to leave a review, as well.

And if you’re feeling frisky after that, or if you, say, found an Amazon gift certificate in your stocking this year, I hope you’ll consider buying one of my other books. Like, for example, the new edition of my first book, BROTHEL, available at for a mere $2.99 as an ebook, and a still-respectably-low $12.95 in physical form.

I have other exciting things going on that I look forward to letting you know about in the future—for example, editor/cinematographer Jeremy Greenberg are working on the early edit of the feature film we shot this year, and I’m hoping to soon wrap up some short films that I made with collaborator Bill Scurry.

As always, thanks for your interest.
