Ebook free promo

Posted in eBook, Scifi, Stories, Writing with tags , , , , on February 12, 2014 by The Prince of Pithy


To mark Valentine’s Day, I figured I should have free promo for one of my Kindle ebooks.  But which one?  Well, after looking at what I’ve published, the closest to a romantic story I have would be “The Only Certainty:”

On The Day, for reasons still unknown, people began changing. They went to sleep as their old selves and woke in their beds in different bodies: bodies that had belonged to other people. And each time they fall asleep, they wake as someone new. Set months later, “The Only Certainty” follows Derrick Gorton on an average day in this new world as he deals with food shortages, the semi-collapse of society, and how to finish his latest novel.

What does that have to do with romance?  Well, you’ll have to read the story to find out.  :D  It will be free to download on Kindle from Thursday the 13th through Saturday the 15th.

The Future is Coming

Posted in eBook, Science, Scifi, Spaceflight with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 29, 2013 by The Prince of Pithy


As a science fiction writer, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how technology will change the way we live. As such, I’ve come up with ten short essays about science fictional elements that will – almost certainly – one day become science fact as a way for people to start coming to terms with them. Because I’ve spent time thinking about clones and AIs, I feel I’ll be okay when they do finally show up whereas most people will probably freak out. I hope these essays will get people to start thinking about the future because, no matter what we do, the future is coming.

It is available on Kindle for $0.99, or equivalent.   I hope you’ll check it out.

It’s been a while

Posted in Odds, Writing with tags on September 14, 2013 by The Prince of Pithy

So it’s been two-and-a-half months since I posted anything here.  The main reason is that I’ve been posting everything on my Bubblews account, where I can actually make some money.  :D  But I will try to have more regular posts here.

Of course, given that this is the fifth time I’ve tried to post this, I may not want to post here.  My computer has a glitch which – sometimes – puts on the caps lock even when I don’t have it on.  Sometimes, I can put on the caps lock and things will show up lowercase, but it doesn’t always work for punctuation.  It’s weird, and can be very annoying.  That’s what happened with my first, second, and fourth attempts at this post.  I’d put in the title, and select the categories and tags, and then I’d start typing only to have it come out “SO IT”S …” So I was thinking the third time would be the charm, but just after I wrote the :D, we lost power for a second.  I had to restart my computer, blah, blah.  I just wanted to do a quick, “I’ll try to post more often” post, but it’s been ten minutes.  But I’ll end this by saying, I’ll try to post more often.

I’m just testing something.  Ignore this post.

Another year, another 30 stories?

Posted in Stories, Writing with tags , on May 28, 2013 by The Prince of Pithy

It’s almost that time again for my self-inflicted insanity.  This June will mark my sixth attempt at my 30 Stories in 30 Days Challenge.  In case you need it spelled out, this is where I attempt to write thirty stories – most of them very short – within a thirty day period.  I’ve succeeded in four of my previous attempts at doing this.  In 2011, I only wrote nineteen stories, but I was in the process of moving that month, so give me a break.

As with the last couple of years, the stories will be posted on my oneoveralpha’s Writing Blog.  Will I meet my goal this year?  You’ll have to check back to find out.
