When Mitch, a half-breed Indian, decides to check out Bear Valley as a site for his Vision Quest, the other three accompany him. It turns out to be more than an overnight camping trip as the friends encounter a bear, an old man, and eagle poachers.

Book Trailer #1 = Tales of a Texas Boy


Little Eddie tells some almost true Tall Tales set in West Texas of the 1930s. Guess what's true and what Eddie fudged on. Was it about the bear? Cage McNatt's prize sow? The skunk in the cornpatch? Guaranteed for a chuckle and maybe a tear here and there.

Fire Sales: Nothing Held Back, Everything Discounted

Spook is watching you.
I know many of you haven't read my books. I'm giving everyone the best opportunity ever to rectify that situation. I have fantasies for the kid in everyone, a mystery, a couple of science fiction, an humor. Fifteen books total on Amazon and thirteen on Smashwords.

I can't make all my Amazon ebooks free, but I can reduce the prices to the same level you merrily shell out your money for a single short story. Even my short story books have three stories in each (they're free on Kindle Unlimited). I've got full books here at short story prices, folks. Maybe you could try one some time. It wouldn't kill you.

All my book prices are now anywhere from #Free to $1.50 at Amazon and Smashwords. The slightly higher prices at Amazon allow for the inclusion of the VAT (European point of sale tax).

See all my ebooks on Smashwords here.

Until Further Notice

ALL of my books will be on sale for a buck a book until I change my mind.  Some of the shorter books will also be on the "Reader Decides the Price" pricing. Pay what you want or nothing at all. I wonder if Amazon will match the markdowns?

Find the ebooks here: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/mgdasef


'Cause you can look right through me, Walk right by me and never know I'm there... "Mr. Cellophane from the musical Chicago"

* Lemons and Fish Tales are only available at Amazon since they're both in the Kindle Select program. All other books pictured above will be on sale.

** The Witches of Galdorheim  Boxed Set is also priced at a buck a book, but that makes the single volume three bucks.

Won't you be my Valentine?

The Witches of Galdorheim Boxed Set. Only $2.50 through VDay using coupon MX85B at Smashwords. This single efile contains the three books of the Witches of Galdorheim series: Bad Spelling, Midnight Oil, and Scotch Broom, plus the short story Spellslinger thrown in for free.

Each individual book costs $2.50, so this is a great way to discover the magic, humor, and bad puns of this MG/YA fantasy. Set in the Arctic, the troll caverns of Norway, Siberia, the lost island of Ultima Thule, and the Otherworld of Scotland.


Another Valentine secret #free special only for people who read my blog. My very popular Tales of a Texas Boy is #free using coupon WU74N.

Based (loosely) on stories my father told me about his boyhood in West Texas in the 1930s. Meet Eddie as he runs into a variety of odd characters: Dad Boles and his bear, an archaeologist looking for mammoth bones, a downright amazing sheepdog, a conman bilking farmers out of their hard-earned saving and the detective who tracks him down. Meet Beau the jackass, a little hen who won't stay out of the kitchen, and a lot of other characters from funny to sinister.

Goodreads Giveaway! Restless in Peaceville (RIP)

Now available in print!
Blurb:
Welcome to Peaceville, population 2067 and rising...from the grave...

Luke Chester has had enough. He’s the school geek, the girls laugh at him, he’s lost his dead-end job at the pizza place, and in the midst of the world’s messiest divorce his parents don’t even know he exists. An overdose of his mom’s tranquilizers and a stomach full of whiskey should solve all his problems...

But they don’t. Instead, Luke finds himself booted out of the afterlife for not dying a natural death, with nowhere to go but back to his recently vacated corpse and reality. How the hell is he going to pass for one of the living without someone trying to blow his brains out for being one of the undead?

And it just gets worse. He’s got to fight his own desperate craving to consume the living, evade the weird supernatural hunter who’s having a field day with the new undeads rising, and there’s this creepy black shadow following him around. Add to that the distraction of female fellow undead Annabelle burning to avenge her own murder, and clearly there’s no rest for the wicked. Jeez, all he wanted to do was R.I.P.

Restless In Peaceville is a young adult zombie story with a twist, set in a Louisiana that never was and released by Lycaon Press on the 20th August, 2014. Add it to your Goodreads shelf HERE.

Restless In Peaceville

Giveaway ends February 28, 2015.
See the giveaway details at Goodreads.

Excerpt:

A creak is all the warning I'm given before the floor gives way and I plummet through the rotten woodwork like a kingfisher diving through the water. I can't see a thing for dust and chunks of wood, but I know I've gone through the ground floor of the house when I break through a second layer of wood and hit earth. Damn, how long will this body hold up if I keep crashing like this?
I lever myself up, and find my head just above ground floor level while more dust and splinters shower down around me. I turn, looking for some way to pull myself back up...and find myself being stared at by three kids.
Oh, shit. For a moment we all just gaze at each other, no one sure what to do or who's going to do it first. Then one of the boys, maybe eight or nine and his mouth hanging open points at me and screams, "Zombie!"
What else can I do? I yank myself out of the hole and lurch at him, moaning fit to scare them to death. They don't hesitate. Each of them competing for the most piercing holler, they scarper out of the house so fast I expect to see scorch marks from the acceleration.
I laugh. Seriously, it's the funniest thing I've seen since I died. Maybe I could get to enjoy this.
