Big News: Writer's Digest to Publish My Weapons E-Book

Big news!

 

A while back, I started an off-the-cuff project called the Crime Writer's Guide to Firearms & Knives. It started as a way to debunk some of the myths about weapons in crime fiction. It soon morphed into a beast of its own, including a glossary and a bit of weapons…

A North Dakota Man Camp Murder

How I Sold 12,000 E-Books: I Didn't

Here's how I sold 12,000 crime fiction e-books: I didn't.

 

At least, not in the way you think of a transaction. I "sold" them, not sold them, through Amazon's KDP Select program.

 

Readers of e-books will feel their eyes glaze over after that last sentence. But know this. The piles upon bloated piles of free e-books you've…
