A Life of Death and Salvation Updates

I am happy to announce that Episode 3 of A Life of Death was released last night on Amazon.com through my publisher Books of the Dead Press. In this episode:

Skeletons from the past are haunting more than just Alex—esteemed adults within the community and even teachers. Alex is confronted with the true tests of life, but can he find the courage to stand up for those in need, including his stepfamily? There is more at stake than bruised ribs and broken bones, and Alex may have to pay the price.

Get it here on Amazon.com for $.99 until it is price matched to other sites. It is currently available for FREE on Smashwords and in coming weeks will be released on Sony, Kobo, Apple, and Barnes and Noble for free.

Episode  4 will be available in two weeks, August 12th.

So far as my Altered Realities series is concerned, I just implemented the initial beta comments for Salvation and have sent the revised edition out to the remaining participating beta readers. I hope to have it ready for release in coming weeks, but it still needs to go through my editor. I will keep you posted about the actual release date as the information becomes available.

Episode One Release! Let's Get Amazon to Pricematch the Episode to Free!

 The first episode of A Life of Death in e-book just went up for free on Barnes and Noble and the Sony e-reader store. For some reason, the description is missing on the B&N store, but they should have the kinks worked out soon. If you've read it and would like to leave a review, please do. Reviews are always helpful to readers looking for good books. I don't have an apple device to check, but it should be available in the iBook store soon too if not already.

My publisher decided to serialize them to get more to the reader for free and really get the word out, and I love the idea. Episode 2 is out on Amazon and will soon be available on the other sites. Episode 3 is scheduled for release on Amazon come June 29th. The other sites seem to lag behind a couple weeks, but will have it up as soon as possible.

Unfortunately neither are free yet on Amazon. If you'd like to help out and get Amazon to match the price of the other stores, there is a "tell us about a lower price" link on the Amazon book page.

Episode 1 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Life-Death-Episode-ebook/dp/B00DPXLAR6/ref=sr_1_4?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1374104420&sr=1-4&keywords=a+life+of+death

Just click the link, post either the Sony or B&N link below in the window that pops up along with 0s for cost and shipping, then hit submitand once enough people have done it, Amazon should price match. It could take 4 people or 40. Amazon keeps things pretty confidential, so I don't know, but if you have a minute to do so, it would be greatly appreciated.
