Thank you to readers and reviewers of Stone and Silt!

I thought I would take a moment and say "thank you" to those of you who have picked up a copy of Stone and Silt. I do appreciate it very much! Writing a book is a long, solitary process and it's so gratifying to hear from people who are giving it a read now that it's published.

Some news: my publisher is considering a significant promotion for Stone and Silt, that will put it on one of the largest book mailing lists in the U.S. We'll be able to do so once it has a few more reviews on

The good news is, it has eight reviews now, and a nice average rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars. Just a few more reviews and we'll be able to launch the promotion.

So I especially want to thank any of you who leave a short review on! Just a few words is all it takes. The link to do so is here:

Whether you leave a review or not... thank you for checking out Stone and Silt!

"Stone and Silt" now part of Amazon's MatchBook program

Have you heard about this? Amazon has a new program, called "MatchBook," where you can get greatly-reduced prices on ebooks for Amazon books you've purchased previously in print editions.

Not every book is eligible for this... but Stone and Silt is, thanks to my always-on-the-ball publisher.

What it means is this: if you purchased a print edition of the book from Amazon, you can get the Kindle version for a mere 99 cents. That's a four-dollar savings or, as I like to think about it, two tall Americanos at Starbucks.

You can easily see which of your past Amazon book purchases are eligible through this Amazon page.

I believe MatchBook is only available in the U.S. at this time. Hopefully it'll be expanded to other countries, like Canada and the U.K., very soon.
