War Journal 73: A Very Beamon Christmas

‘Tis the season to use the word ’tis!  Plus friends and fam come around or toss you invites for you to come around.  I don’t know what it’s been about this year, but it’s been a woodwork type of season that everyone’s coming out of.  I’m seeing family I haven’t seen in years and friends I’ve seen seldom enough to wonder if we’re still friends.  Hell, one friend I met in person for the first time ever.

This is all to say I’ve been a bit busy.  And having a great time, too.

I’m about to go back to that!  Offline stuff.  Seasonal stuff.  ‘Tis stuff!  But first, I wanted to give all you guys who check for me a little early present.  I’m giving away my novelette, Dialogues with Talking Heads, for free temporarily.  Not only that, it’s coming bundled with 4 other works from that are also being given away for free for a limited time.  It’s a great way to get something I’d normally charge for while getting the opportunity to discover someone new… always great to do that without paying or just having a chinchy bit of “Look Inside” at the first 3 pages over at Amazon.  Christmas means more than 3 pages, Amazon!

Free Novelette for Christmas!

Hey gang,

As a way of thanking you all for subscribing and hanging out with me, I’m giving away my novelette “Dialogues with Talking Heads” starting on Christmas until December 29th.  What that means is after the sheer unadulterated joy of tearing open packages from people you love and thanking them profusely for getting you exactly what you wanted, and the heady thrill of Christmas morning starts to wind down, go on out to Amazon and download “Dialogues” for free.

If you like it… tell me so!  Either here on my blog or on Amazon (where you can rate it too!).  In the meanwhile, I hope you guys are having a Merry Christmas, and if you don’t celebrate, I hope you have a day off or something going down tomorrow that brings some unexpected joy.  If nothing else, you’ve got 5 days to go get yourself a free e-novelette, starting tomorrow!

Dialogues for My Readers

I have a couple hot releases coming down the pipe.  For email subscribers to Daily Science Fiction, expect my latest story, Past Tense, to hit your inboxes on April 1st.  Non-subscribers will have to wait a week, so if you haven’t gotten on the mailing list, now may be the time.  It’s free and the stories they send provide a pretty welcome departure from your daily grind.

My other news is pretty big.  Novelettes have a hard time finding good markets, so I decided to take my novelette and sell it myself.  Thanks in large parts to the beautiful e-book cover and interior design provided by Karina Steffens over at Neo-archaic Web Design Services, my near-future science fiction story Dialogues with Talking Heads is now available on Amazon.  Here’s a teaser:

They say the only sure things are death and taxes. But death doesn’t have to be a certainty with the right technology. Especially if there are people itching to ask the dearly departed questions about their taxes.

Dr. Hugh Torquato’s business is post-mortem communications, and business is booming. Sometimes the dead are the only ones with the answers, and the trick of getting them to speak is a closely guarded trade secret.

But the revolutionary technology Hugh uses on the job may not be the only one out there with a wicked cutting edge. When a VIP dies in a manner both unnatural and inexplicable, Hugh finds his hands full trying to unravel a locked-room mystery that even the dead can’t figure out.

I’m extremely excited about this story’s debut, and not just because it marks my first venture into the world of author-driven e-publishing.  Of all the stories I’ve ever written, Dialogues is the all time favorite of my number one fan and supporter, my wife.  She’s been dying to see this in print for some time, so giving it the glossy treatment it deserves and putting it out for the world to read is more a present for her than anything else.

I know this gift is a little premature, but I doubt I’ll be able to top it way out here in Afghanistan.  Happy birthday, Kitty.

Check out Dialogues with Talking Heads at Amazon for $2.99 or FREE if you’re an Amazon Prime Customer.
