Shit, meet fan

It's been a hectic couple of weeks.  We had some rare snow in Portland (read: the city shut down) and my car was hit not once, not twice, but three times while parked on the street.  Two of those were hit and runs, (thankfully witnessed) and then a fourth car hit the third car and...anyway, it was a lot of stress I didn't need.

Once I got my car back from the shop (literally the hour I got it back) my little jumpy dog did her little jumpy thing and aggravated an old knee injury (read: hours spent in doggy emergency room.)  She will likely need surgery at some point soon, which will mean taking time off from work to take care of her.  Hopefully this will also mean having extra time to work on Les Recidivists, but that remains to be seen.  At any rate, I'm going out of town for a few days, so here's another hit and I should have a book cover to present in the near future.

She actually sits like this.  Always has.

One year later

As hard as this is for me to believe, Chance Assassin has officially been out for a year now.  A year.  12 whole months.  52 weeks.  365 days.  When I started writing it I didn't think it would ever be finished, much less published, but here we are.

I've said this before and I doubt I'll ever stop saying it, but it's been about as surreal of an experience as I've ever had.  I'm eternally grateful (and honestly still shocked) with how well the story resonated with readers.  Hell, I'm shocked that it was read at all.

In any event, a huge thanks again to everyone involved in helping me write, edit, and market it, and an enormous thanks to everyone who picked up a copy (or plans to when I finally get to the point...)

To celebrate, Chance Assassin will be $0.99 from March 1st through the 5th.  Les Recidivists will be out soon, and then the madness can begin all over again.
