Replica of Holy Lance received

Casca fan John Lovato of Utah kindly sent me a replica of the Holy Lance that resides in the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Austria, which I received this week. This is the replica of the one Hitler took from Vienna in 1938, and was returned to the Austrians by General Patton in 1945.

To buy or not to buy?

I’d like to humbly ask all you guys out there not to buy the paperbacks from Amazon.  I only get 25c per paperback sold on Amazon and cannot justify the time taken to research and write these stories if more and more people buy from Amazon.  I’d rather people buy from my website and then no money goes to the bulging coffers of Amazon and they throw me the scraps.

Thank you.

No more Amazon paperback sales from me

After Amazon fees hikes I no longer make any money from sales on amazon.  I lose 34p currently and really cannot afford to keep on selling paperbacks there.  Paper backs are always on sale from my own website so please buy there.  Kindle ebooks are unaffected and will still be on sale from amazon sites.

I’d ask all of you guys and gals out there to consider where your money goes before buying paperbacks from Amazon.  to the seller?  no, they go to Amazon execs and their shareholders.  Amazon is a buyers website, not a sellers.  I know sometimes it works out more expensive buying from my website shop than from amazon, and I can’t tell you where to get your Casca books or Kastania books or Siren books, but if you’d like to support the writer rather than a big corporation, my website is the place to get them from.

I would like to thank all of you for buying the Casca novels and my other books, as it keeps me going.  However if I relied purely on amazon sales, I would have gone under a long time ago.

Lombard is coming out end of September/start of October.  Keep your eyes peeled for updates.

Casca 49 draft finished

Yes, its now completed, the first draft, and is with the proofreaders.  Artwork is being done, too, and I expect things to be ready to shift in a few weeks for publishing.  For those of you who have got the books already, its the direct sequel to Casca 28: The Avenger.

I remember, speaking of Casca 28, having an argument at the time with my late publisher who was concerned about the cover, and I told him to keep it as the topless slave woman on the cover would help sell it.  He wasn’t sure but I was confident.  and to this day Casca 28 remains the only book in the series to have had boxes of it stolen by some eager thief….
