Blackbirds, Chapter One, Now Online

BLACKBIRDS, Chapter One: The Death of Del Amico.

Free, online, at Angry Robot Books.

That, my bubbly little word-heads, is my Christmas present to you. And by “my” Christmas present, I really mean Angry Robot’s present, but hey, whatever. It’s a present. You shut up.

Due out in April, you can, of course, pre-order now.

Would love to hear your thoughts, if you care to share them.

Other Stuff!

A reminder: the e-book promotion is still on where if you procure 500 WAYS TO BE A BETTER WRITER, you get 250 THINGS for free. Details here: “December Is The Month Of No Mercy.”

Another thing: you’ll note that the Penmonkey Count is up to 627. Which means it’s time again to give away some stuff to folks — I will be giving away another postcard, another t-shirt, and another writing critique. All you need to do to be entered is have procured CONFESSIONS OF A FREELANCE PENMONKEY and shown me the proof of purchase (unnecessary if you bought the PDF version). I’ll pick tomorrow (Tues) at around 9AM — keep an eye on the comments here for the three picks. Details here: “The Penmonkey Incitement.” (Remember, once that count gets to 1000, it’s time to give away another Kindle.)

Final note: the next couple weeks will be a little light here at terribleminds — you’ll still find content, but the posts will be a little smaller, a little more tidbitty, at least until the end of the year.

I know. Here’s a tissue. Cry it out. I won’t tell anyone what you and I shared here today.
