Amidst the blog blur
Today, I commenced a 5-day offer on Amazon.com to give away digital copies of The Matter of the Crown. If you are contemplating a good deep read, here's your chance to dive in. I hope you enjoy it.
Some might wonder what prompts that. An author is generally not a salesperson, although this world requires that all of us who write as work do that. (People are looking for our work, they say.) What prompted me to give the book away for a time was the thought about writing something special and giving it away...so that readers can find me and the rest of my work. That lead, rather quickly, to the decision to give this book away for a while.
Writing seems to me to be a calling. It's like every artistic endeavor...you have it in you and it bangs around making noise in there until you give it vent. The business about selling the work is ancillary.
