Hello! The nomadic monkey has returned. One of my 2014 goals is to get more involved in the writing communities I know and love. So, here I am. I'll be sporadic (just started a new job) but hopefully more consistent.

Aaaaanyway. My new novel is out! And I'm giving stuff away! Souvenirs that may not be quite legal!

Here's the blurb:

They stole her family. They destroyed her body. They left her for dead. Their mistake. If memory serves, Mrs. Robinson had a happy life with her husband and daughter. Memory is a tricky thing, and hers has been forever altered by a series of traumatic events that left her family dead and her body broken. She survives on a diet of painkillers and hatred, determined to have her revenge. She has a list of names, plenty of ammunition, and a secret admirer. What else does a girl need? Each kill gets her one step closer to her goal and inches from the brink of sanity, racing to finish her list before she goes crazy. The problem, of course, is that she’s already there...

http://www.amazon.com/Miss-Massacres-Guide-Murder-Vengeance/dp/178279311...

You can kindle or nook or paper it. Whatever.

And here's the stuff! Shotgun shells! Bookmarks! Stickers! Buy the book, send me proof of purchase over on facebook or via PM or something (or a pic of you with the book would be cool, since authors seem to love showing that kind of thing off) and I'll send you a prize pack! I'm almost out of them. I want them all gone!

I'm proud to say I bought the first copy. I only wish I could read books at anywhere near the speed with which I acquire them.

Supercool promo swag.

Yes! PM me your address. I might have to do some tricky postal maneuvering, but I already have some shells going to Ireland and Wales, so why not?

I read this last weekend, and think many folks here would dig it.

They went out last week in the mail. You should have them soon!

 

And user Klaut just scored the final shell, so thanks to everyone for participating!

I'm still sort of breaking out of reading short fiction, but your story looks super interesting.

Thanks! Try it, you'll like it! If there's a better book out there about a legless homicidal maniac who's strung out on drugs, I'll eat my hat.
