A NEW BOOK!
Autumn, my favorite season, is running out the door with Winter fast behind it, but that just means more opportunities to read as the sun sets earlier and there are darn few reasons to go outside.
Speaking of reading, I’ve just released a new (non-Marty Singer) book, Stealing Sturgis on Amazon.com. It’s an Elmore Leonard-esque caper with plenty of fights, car chases, an explosive ending–and it’s just $.99 for a limited time!
Here’s the setup:
If this sounds like your cup of tea, check it out at http://www.amazon.com/Stealing-Sturgis-Matthew-Iden-ebook/dp/B00QFKJC6M/tag=matthewiden-20.
To thank you for your support, I’m offering it for just $.99 for a limited time, so grab your copy now! As always, if you enjoy it, I would appreciate it if you’d tell a friend and leave a 3 or 4 sentence review on Amazon!
p.s. There have been some formatting issues with the Kindle Reader versions of the book for iPad/iPhone, but the problems should be solved soon. The books is perfectly readable, but it just isn’t as handsome as it should be and it looks fine on any Kindle e-reader!
Friends – Big Al’s voting page is now live!

I’m guest blogging on Omnimystery News today about the inspiration for my protagonist, Marty Singer. If you said Spenser, Reacher, or Pike…you’re way off. Check out the blog to find out why!
Omnimystery is also kindly holding a contest for Blueblood, the second in my Marty Singer series. Three copies (paper or electrons, your choice) being given away. Head on over, read the blog post (you’ll need a code found in my guest post), and enter the contest. Ends October 25! Enter now or be forever cursed!

A Reason to Live is being featured on the Bawdy Book blog tomorrow, October 19. While ARTL isn’t the steamy norm for this corner of the internet, blogger Jennifer Adams was kind enough to make an exception in my case (hey, there aren’t one but TWO sex scenes in the novel). Please swing by and give her a vote, a comment, or at least one tick upward in her site metrics.

Kindle Nation Daily is set to run a sponsored excerpt of A Reason to Live on October 23. Their “Free Kindle Nation Shorts Excerpt – Email Blast” goes out to “over 32,000 opt-in email or Kindle edition subscribers.” They’ll be running a 20,000 word excerpt from A Reason to Live that I hope will wow a whole new raft of consumers in time for…well, it’s a little early for Christmas, but never too late to read a book!
This is the last of three recent attempts to buy love on the internet, the other two being ads on Ereader News Today and Goodreads. When all the numbers are in, I hope to do a wrap up on the return on investment (and effort).
