Subliminal Messiah Cover* * *Twilight of the Wolves

If you want a book signed this weekend, it’s important you order it ASAP, since Eddy and I have both nearly exhausted our personal stashes. That’s good news, in a way, but we’d hate for someone to miss out.

Otherwise, if you can make it out to Maple Grove tonight, they should have Subliminal Messiah on hand.

Shhh, it’s a secret.


 

You can get Eddy’s latest book, Twilight of the Wolves, on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. And whie you’re at it, take a look at his other books. The man is prolific.

Subliminal Messiah is my first novel, and is currently available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble as well.

Both books are available right now at an online discount from Amazon and Barnes & Noble, so be sure to check that out.

Why this situation is unique is that the device in question was a gift for my wife. As dedicated as I am to Apple, I don’t seek to impose my beliefs on others. I knew she wanted a Nook or Kindle touch/color screen tablet thing for her birthday so I obliged and, taking advantage of the last day to order from Amazon without paying California state sales tax, I ordered a Kindle Fire. We got the device a couple days later. Continue reading
