Thursday Thirteen: As Random as it Gets


1. Both versions of Trevor’s Song are now on sale!

2. Buy the digital versions (that means e-book versions) at Smashwords, where the novel’s half-off and the Demo Tapes are free. Use the coupon codes you see listed, if five bucks is too rich for your blood…

3. Buy the print version at Lulu. Or direct from me.

4. I’ll be selling it direct for cheaper, once you factor in the shipping charges. I can explain why privately, if you’re curious.

5. I’m available for interviews and guest blog posts.

6. I’ve got a bunch waiting to be written, though. Summertime’s slowed me down.

7. Yesterday was the pool. Today’s a quiet day. Tomorrow’s the Science Center. And I’m too whipped in the evenings to do much writing. Ouch.

8. I need to get over that, and fast. The Tour de France is in full swing, and it’s wonderful to write in front of.

9. I’m pulling for Andy Schleck, I think. But I have other favorite cyclists, too.

10. Check out their thighs! Wow. Things of beauty, these pro bikers’ legs.

11. Watching the Tour makes me want to go out and bike, but I’m still sidelined by an arm injury. Every time I set eyes on my road bike, I pout.

12. I think the cat has a kidney stone. Or maybe a UT infection. Or both.

13. That’s about it… stay cool, everyone!

    Hope your kitty is OK – kidney stuff is rough on a cat.

    This is a tough time of year to stay focused on our writing. Maybe try setting aside an hour before everyone else wakes up, or an hour after they all go to bed.
    Stay cool and Happy T13!

    *ahem* You have an author interview request from me that’s a few weeks old.

    I hear you re: TDF, but I finally got so frustrated with all the doping fuss that I quit watching. You get all excited about someone only to see him have his awards taken away and his contracts cancelled. After awhile, it gets old.

    Another Tour fan. I have several favorites and their thighs are a delight.

    Well, I hope that your cat feels better, your arm gets better, and that you enjoy writing and the Tour.

    There have been some horrible crashes this year in the Tour. I hope your arm gets better soon. I had a wonderful bike ride yesterday. For one there was no wind and it was a sunny winter day. Just beautiful.

    Oh dear — I’m sorry to hear about your kitty. I hope both your kitty and your arm are feeling better soon. I’d love for you to guest blog on TN Text Wrestling, to send the ShapeShifter guys over for an interview, or all of the above. 🙂
