Another “Hey Dumbass!” post? I think yes.

I guess since my own sister had no idea SLAMMED was now in audiobook, it only means I forgot to blog about it.

So, guess what?  SLAMMED is now in audiobook.  Check it out.

Or here:

POINT OF RETREAT will be available soon.

Signed Books

Now that the books are in paperback, I have had a lot of questions and requests regarding how to get signed books.  At one point, I had the option to purchase signed copies on my website, but that is no longer available due to the difference in the way things are set up now that the books are trade pubbed. But, I would love to continue offering those of you who want signed copies this option.  So here’s what I can do.

If you purchase copies of the books from bookstores and want them signed, I’ll be happy to sign them and ship them back to you.  Media mail for the US usually runs me about $3, plus packaging.  So for $5, I’ll be happy to sign the books and mail them back to you.  Just send the books to:

PO Box 1400 Sulphur Springs, Tx 75483

You can either paypal the shipping costs to or send it along with the books you want signed.  Be sure to include a slip with who you want the books made out to, and the address you want me to ship them back to.

If you are internation, just email me and I’ll get you a quote for shipping.


Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

First of all, I just want to wish my big boy a happy birthday!!!  Cale turned nine years old today.  And yes, “Kel” from the books was inspired by my own Cale.  He loves to hear stories about the other Kel in the books, and his favorite story is when Kel is turning 11 in Point of Retreat and gets the cake that says, “Happy Butterflying Birthday, Kel.”   So when I asked Cale what kind of cake he wanted me to order this morning, he chose this:


Cale inspired a lot of the “Kel” scenes in the books.  Here’s a pic of one of them.  This is the snowman my boys made two years ago.


Crazy kids.  But hey, it makes for good scenes in books!  🙂

Okay, now on to why we’re really here. I’m going to have to come up with a better way to do these giveaways, like rafflecopter.  This took me two hours to compute with all the extra bonus entries!

HUGE thanks to everyone who reposted and to those who emailed me pics of the books in stores.  Can’t wait to get them all printed out, they were great.

So, without further ado.
