Two of my short stories have been posted on Commuter Lit!
The Whole Truth – (About identity and purpose)
Star Power – (About identity and purpose…in space!)
September 10th marks the release of my first self-published novel, Independent Investigators Inc. Maybe not literally, since it’s been secretly available to buy from various places for a little while, but since I get to pick, that will be the official start date for the paperback!
It’s been a long time coming, and my initial planning document is dated November 1st, 2013. And that does not include the months of gestating the idea. Since then I’ve learned so much about writing, rewriting, rewriting again, formatting, printing, last minute rewriting, and production.
So, Independent Investigators Inc. It’s a story filled with lovely contradictions. There are serious murders and mysteries to go along with them, but at the same time there is an Underwear themed gang lord who has a metal plunger as a weapon. It’s about getting to the bottom of a convoluted conspiracy in a futuristic city that sprawls across three levels, but also furtively about identity and one man’s internal struggle to define himself as something other than his hobbies.
It was a great pleasure to write—telling the tales of Louis, Janne, Milena, Dee, Frederick, Hild#, and Skivvies Karl (which one is the undies one I wonder?)—and I hope it will be as satisfying for you to read!
Okay, let’s get started.

Hmm, I guess that figures. Well, I won’t worry about it too much. Readership is more important anyway.

It was worth a try! But I suppose I won’t need a built in readership if I have all these fantastic and bestselling novels to drive traffic in. Content is king!

Oh yeah, right. What do I have? It’s strange that I do not remember what I’ve written, but that’s the way it is for this joke intro, so deal with it!
[One book found]
Only one? I’ve really got my work cut out for me. Have to start somewhere though. Here we go!
