#GotHow ?

No?

Then go get you some.

 

And keep your eyes open for new Kindle singles of your favorite Manlove & Kickerdick stories in the next couple of weeks, as well as rejiggered ebook versions of Living Dead at Zigfreidt & Roy and Hum (from the now OOP classic A CAREER GUIDE TO YOUR JOB IN HELL)

And stay tuned for a planned release of a new Manlove & Kickerdick adventure in early August, just in time for the 2014 When Words Collide convention (where I will be appearing on a plethora of panels with such Canadian luminaries as Janice MacDonald and SG Wong), as well as news on the updated schedules for THE HORSE ALWAYS GETS IT FIRST and THE KEY TO STEAM AND SALVATION coming in 2015 from Coffin Hop Press!

HOT SINATRA climbing the charts! Get it now!

Hot_Sinatra_v2EllisFinalistLast summer, my debut novel HOT SINATRA hit it’s sales peak with #1 spots on the amazon kindle lists in Hardboiled and Noir categories.

Now, with the announcement of the Arthur Ellis Award nomination, the book is climbing back up the charts again, currently sitting at at #35 on Amazon.com and #80 in the UK.

Please, RT, share, Facebook it, +1… whatever it is that you do to share your opinions in the New Digital World.

I would love nothing more than to get this book out into the hands and hearts of as many readers as possible. HOT SINATRA was a 3 year labor of love, and I am very proud of the nomination.

If you’ve read HOT SINATRA, please consider dropping a review somewhere. Even here. I’d love to hear what you think.

If you, or someone you know might be interested in a wild and quirky, darkly funny, yet heartfelt throwback to old-school detective fiction, or just interested in what has been described as a “page-turner” and a “damn good read”, send em’ by or pick it up.

I certainly appreciate any and all support for my first-born novel.

 

Love, respect and heartfelt salutations to you all,

Axel
