Hi All,

Sorry for the late notice!

I’m speaking on a panel at Full Sail University as a part of its Hall of Fame week. The panel is all about self-publishing: the ins and outs, the whys and wherefores, the do and the do nots.

The panel will be streaming live on YouTube and is instantly archived so if you can’t tune in tonight, I hope you will catch up with me soon after.

Beside kicking the science, I’ll be debuting a new sport coat, so please join tonight at 7pm EST right here:

It’s also available through Oyster and Scribd, so those of you with subscriptions to those services can download it as well.

To celebrate, LTTC is only $2.99 for all versions except Kindle, which is holding steady at $3.99.

Call for Reviews

Well, I’ve hit the indie author wall.

Here’s the thing…book visibility on Amazon is partially driven by reviews. Supposedly something magical happens once you get at least 20. I think gnomes visit your home at night and tickle your toes. I dunno.

Anyway, if you A) read my book and  B) liked it, would you take a few moments and throw a review up there for me? Three sentences, not a book report. Just a little something something?

I have been avoiding asking for reviews since I published, but I have come to learn that it is a must. It just seems so self-serving, but hell.

Use the Contact page to message me with a link to your review and I’ll send you some cool cover art stickers and postcards.

Tom Lucas Interview from Indie BookFest 2013

Juania Books pulled me away from my screaming fans for a quick interview. I was amazingly coherent considering the lack of coffee in my system.  Juania Books is doing something special. Be sure to check them out.

Enjoy.

Join me for the Blogger Book Fair: July 22 – 26

July BBF button copyCitizens of the Blogosphere, Web-nauts, and Concerned Third Parties!

Next month I’ll be participating in the semi-annual Blogger Book Fair, and I invite you to join me here for several days of guest posts, author interviews, and other random awesomeness.

But it won’t be random —  this is a large, planned event with a bazillion authors, bloggers, and readers coming together through the click-magic of the Internet. This site is just one pretty float in a parade of book giveaways, author interviews, special events — all kind of excitement. Put on your nice bathing suit and dive into a sea of — ok, that’s just overwrought — I’m trying too hard.

At it’s core, the Blogger Book Fair is an intricately designed blog hop for those that love to read and the writers that love to write for them. Between July 22-26, you’ll be able to visit over 200 websites and check out over 400 books. All while you sip your coffee or whatever it is you put in that mug of yours.

In honor of this event, I’ll be pricing the Kindle version of my novel, Leather to the Corinthians, at 99 CENTS. That’s right, 99 CENTS. Outrageous.

More details to come.

You can learn more about the Blogger Book Fair here, or visit their Facebook Page.

Enjoy the weekend and try to stay out of trouble.

Book Signing…SUCCESS.

Last Saturday, I had a book signing event at Docking Bay 94 Comics and Games down in the Boca Raton, FL area. I spent about seven years living in the Boca Bubble and I can tell you from experience that it will warp your priorities. I felt just a slight tinge of justice served as I returned the favor.

We had a solid turnout, and I had the chance to see many old friends, co-conspirators, and excited new disciples. I have also heard a report that one person may have received a speeding ticket trying to make it before the event was over. Unfortunately, the alleged traffic violator did not make it in time…if I can confirm this, I will name a character after her in a future story. It’s the least I can do.

Even though I stand in front of a room and talk for a living, I always feel a bit strange being the center of attention — especially when I plan to be. Fortunately, everyone was so cool that I forgot about how weird I am and it’s nice to have a vacation from that.

The overall response to the book has been encouraging. I’ve heard enough positive remarks to keep moving forward. It could be that my author photo keeps a few trolls out of my life. I do look like I’ll take your lunch money. Remember: if you look dangerous, you don’t have to be dangerous.

In other news:

I have just under a week left in my Goodreads giveaway. I’m giving 10 free, signed copies of Leather to the Corinthians. If you don’t have a copy yet, or need something to prop up a wobbly table, then take a moment to click HERE.

Also, my book ended up…ah ok, I hijacked this Listopia on Goodreads…Best Social and Political Satires. Again, if you are on Goodreads, can you throw me a vote? I’m all the way up to #2. Click HERE to vote.

Lastly, Amazon has added new categories for Kindle, and Leather is currently #68 in Metaphysical and Visionary. I have no idea how this happened, but I dig the Visionary part.

Here’s some pics from the book signing. Thanks to all who came out to support me and my madness. YOU ROCK.
