Great news. Maybe someday I'll get one of those doohickeys.

Chris said...

Fantastic! (And an aggressive price-point, to boot!) Hope it sells like hotcakes...

Evan, It is a must, senor.

Chris, Same here and I appreciate your post.

Charles, That it is.

I'll have to get a kindle just so I can hear the electronic voice read Anonymous-9's story!

David Cranmer said...

Hadn't thought of that, AC. Bite, Jed's Daddy or Andy's Anarchy would be perfectly suited to the cold read.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Heck of a deal! My Kindle could stand to get a little full daylight. :)

Travis Erwin said...

It was a great collection of stories, and I highly recommend it.

Ron Scheer said...

Couldn't happen to a better book. And Chet Baker was so cool...

Cloudia said...

I so admire you productive I dream and blog and neglect to push my little novel...


Aloha from Honolulu

Comfort Spiral

Good news and a good deal. Hell, it's a great deal for such quality content. This should crack a few top lists at Amazon. Well done.

David Cranmer said...

Alyssa, Ha. Well, if you do, I hope you enjoy.

Thanks, Travis.

Ron, Baker was a mess of a human but such a superb musician. I never get tired of his playing.

Cloudia, I believe you first came to my blog with the announcement of the start of the BTAP webzine. Many a year ago now. Btw did you enjoy "Melanie?"

Matt, It was at #7,412 a few minutes ago. Wouldn’t it be nice to crack the top 100!

Wait a minute. Does Kindle have an electronic voice. How to you activate it?

David Cranmer said...

Patti, Once you're in your story just hit that double AA (second A is smaller than the first) on your keypad. Then hit Text-to-Speech. It will begin reading to you. Make sure volume is turned up.
