This morning, Amazon sent an email out to independent authors who publish ebooks through them, asking them to weigh in on the argument between Amazon and Hachette. If you're not aware of what's going on, Amazon is trying to 'convince' Hachette to charge less for its ebooks.

Happy book launch day to Monica La Porta


Monica was one of the first writers I met when I entered the world of social media. Not only is she a wonderful writer, she's a lovely, kind, helpful person as well. I'm sure many of you will know Monica's writing through the Ginecean Chronicles, her thought provoking dystopian series where men are slaves within a matriarchal society.

In a couple of weeks, I'll be releasing my fourth book (the third book in the Hidden series) and shortly after that I'll be heading off to WorldCon as a trader.
