Thank you readers for making April 2010 my best-selling month ever! In April (as of noon on the last day of the month) I have sold 60 books on the Amazon Kindle platform.

I’m “hard” at work on the sequel to “All the Time in Our World”. On the one hand, it’s already been written, but I was never satisfied with a particular section. If this were a football game, you might say I was having trouble in the red zone. On the other hand, it’s not really… Read more »
