Just a Few Things, But Mostly An Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

Not much to say today, but there are a few links worth sharing if you're amenable.

  • Earlier this month, I took part in The Writing Process Blog Tour (henceforth renamed The Speculative Fiction Blog Hop, but original post remains the same here). After some further discussions amongst us blogger, Heidi Garrett began compiling a central archive site for these posts. In addition to our process posts, there's also going to be some giveaways, excerpts, info on new releases - all good stuff, I assure you. So, go check out the Speculative Fiction Showcase. My tour post has been re-posted there, AND, as if that weren't enough of a reason to check out this new site, you have a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. You'll also find some info on new eBooks from Heidi, Jennifer Ellison, Kevin Hardman, S. Elliot Brandis, and Jason Gurley.
  • Speaking of Elliot and Jason - I did a quick review of Elliot's book, IRRADIATED, a few days ago and my thoughts on it are right over here. Feel free to skip the review and just go buy this book. If you're a fan of post-apocalyptic literature, you're in good hands. And Jason has a new release coming up in June titled ELEANOR. Word has it, if you have not already joined his mailing list you should go do that immediately. Like now-now. Trust me. You'll be in for a great surprise in the coming days. You'll also get a free copy of his short story THE LAST RAIL-RIDER immediately. I read this one over the weekend, and it's a fun, funky bit of post-apocalypse with a unique ending. I dug it.
  • Indie Author Land posted their 50 Self-Published Books Worth Reading guide. Although CONVERGENCE did not make their final cut, I'm humbled that my book got any votes at all. There's some great suggestions in their list, though. And, while you're there, check out the interview I did with them in April.
