Check out my short story “Enigma”

Posted in Writing on January 30, 2012 by The Prince of Pithy

I want to take the time to announce that my short story “Enigma” has been published by Books To Go Now and can be downloaded here for Kindle and Nook for only $0.99.

“Enigma” is set in my Human Republic Universe, and consists of two parts.  Part I follows Carlos Molina, a maintenance man at a comet mining facility.  He is sent out to fix a problem with one of the automated miners.  In the process, he discovers a cube embedded in the comet’s nucleus.

Part II is set five years later and follows Doctor Susan Black, Director of Cube Studies.  With the upcoming anniversary of the discovery of the Molina Cube, she is deluged by news requests for comments.  During this she gives an interview to a student from her alma mater concerning the nature of the Cube.

You know you want to check it out.  😀

I just saw a well hung guy on Chatroulette

I’m hoping it’s just a joke.

An Interesting Pairing

Updated website

For reasons too complicated and mundane for a blog, I haven’t been able to update my website for about six months.  But I’ve finally been able to update it in the last couple of days.  The updates are mostly simple things – like the blurbs and links to the few stories I’ve posted the last few months – but I’ve also updated the page for my next book, The All-You-Can-Read Buffet.  Before, it had pretty much just been a page with the title, but now I have the working cover, book blurb, and content list.  So check that out.

The other change I’ve made is to add a PayPal Donate button on the main page.  For the longest time I put off doing something like that because it seemed … desperate?  But I figured it would be better to have it and have no one use it than have someone want to give me money and them not being able to.  So I’m not asking for donations; I’m just letting you know I’ll take them.  😀

When was that?

In case you didn’t know, I write a column on Examiner.com.  You should check it out.  Anyway, Examiner.com is always sending emails about new things they are doing or to thank me for being a contributor or something.  I usually just delete these message, but I got one today that I felt I needed to share:

I’ve been with them since when?  Did I come 38,000 years back in time, or what?
