Two announcements for the day:
One is that Smashwords having a site-wide sale for "Read an eBook Week" on books by every author who has signed up. The sale will start Sunday, March 6, and go through the 12th. My books will either be half-price or free. You can buy them by simply going to the site and putting the book in your cart, and the automated coupon should kick in. (You should not have to enter a code or anything.)
This is a great way to try out ebooks. You can read them online, or on your favorite ereader in one of the many formats. And the great thing about Smashwords is that you have access to ALL formats all the time. If you change readers a year from now, you can download a different copy.
You can find my books listed on my Smashwords Profile.
The other announcement has me hopping up and down with excitement.... They have FINALLY released the old Ellery Queen TV Show on DVD! The ones with Jim Hutton and David Wayne. Do you remember those? (Are you to young? Am I dating myself?)
This series was developed and largely written by Levinson and Link, the guys who created Columbo, and Mannix and Murder, She Wrote. EQ was an old fashioned whodunnit series, and very stylishly done, but the puzzles were tough, and the show only lasted for one season. (And was partly responsible for Levinson and Link making the Murder, She Wrote puzzles much simpler.)
I always thought it was cool that Jim Hutton's son was the one to bring an equally stylish version of Nero Wolfe to TV later on. (And I notice that Amazon indicates that many people are buying both series together.)
I have mine ordered and I even paid extra for it to arrive tomorrow!
