Tip jar

Following a suggestion made earlier by several people, I have installed a ‘donate’ widget in the sidebar at right. Through the good offices of Wendy S. Delmater, my friend and boss at Abyss & Apex, the widget has been tested, and I can confirm that money dropped into the tip jar will reach me at the other end.

Any donations will be gratefully received. I hope to be able to send a personal acknowledgement to every donor, but if this is not possible, let me thank you in advance. And thanks also to my 3.6 Loyal Readers for sticking with my humble blog, and reading my books. You have been a lifeline to me through trying times.

    Not a tip, exactly, but I have finally managed to get The End of Earth and Sky onto my newly-acquired e-reader (I was fortunate enough to get one as a gift), after a long and laborious process that did involve an Amazon purchase.

    I will thus exploit the fleeting goodwill created by said purchase and demand imperiously: When’s the sequel coming out?!

    • Unfortunately, I can’t say with any hope of accuracy.

      It is only in the last few days that my various maladies have abated enough to allow me to work connectedly for more than an hour or two, and I may not be out of the woods yet.

      On the assumption that my health will hold for at least a few days of honest labour, I have set myself a ‘to do’ list for the rest of July; and after that I shall be putting in some work on a serial project that shows some promise of finding an audience. Only after that will I be able to turn to The Grey Death; but I still hope to have that book out in time for Christmas. Wish me luck!

      • Best of luck! And I am still hoping you make The End of Earth and Sky available through some outlet other than, or in addition to, Amazon.

        • I am planning to do that; but I don’t think Smashwords will be that outlet, because I have had a number of technical problems with them (and they don’t pay regularly). I am looking into Draft2Digital as a distributor, since they seem to get one’s books into all the same places Smashwords does, and many people say their upload and conversion process is a lot smoother.

  2. Tom,

    I sent you a note through your contact form that it seems you haven’t received. Would you kindly check your various email traps or send me a note at this address?
