On April 19, 2016, I am launching OUTLAWS OF TIME: THE LEGEND OF SAM MIRACLE. It’s my first novel in two years, and to commemorate the memmorateness of the occasion, I’m focusing all my book promotion on giveaways!
Anyone who buys OUTLAWS in the first week (no later than April 23) will receive their choice of rewards. Multiple copies earn multiple rewards. I don’t care what format you might purchase or which retailer you might use, just email a receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org and name your reward.
Over the years, I have heard from thousands of aspiring writers, young and old. And so my first giveaway centers focuses on all of you with interest in the craft.

REWARD (2) A SNEAK PEEK AT ASHTOWN BURIALS IV: THE SILENT BELLS
Dear Ashtown Fans, I love you. No, really. You have hung in there with me through thick and thin. Even though I still haven’t been given a release date for this finale volume, it is your commitment and passion that keeps me pushing it forward. I’m not even joking. Because the fire burns hot among Ashtown fans, and because I hope you’ll love Sam and Glory in Outlaws of Time as much as you love Cyrus and Antigone Smith, I’m going to do something I have never done before. I’m going to record a reading of the first two chapters of Book IV from the manuscript, and I’m going to send it to you. If you, like thousands of others, would love to clear the cliffhanger at the end of Empire of Bones, this reward is for you. Send your receipt in and claim it.
REWARD (3) FREE AUDIOBOOK DOWNLOADS OF DEATH BY LIVING AND NOTES FROM THE TILT-A-WHIRL (READ BY ME)
For those of you who have print copies of my nonfiction, now you can take me with you to the gym. For those of you who have never read my nonfiction, now’s your chance! Send in your receipt and claim both downloads. I will be chatting at you in no time. And as a sidenote, I recorded these late at night, while sipping bourbon alone in the dark, so I really don’t hold anything back.
Cheers and thanks so much for your support!
