Sorry about the cheesey title. But I'm getting ready to diversify in a major way. In the next year or so, I plan to release my first two eBooks: 1) GHOST: a supernatural thriller for those who enjoy Lee Child, Jim Butcher books AND 2) Berinfell Prophecies Book 3 (3rd in YA Fantasy Series with Christopher Hopper).

SO, I guess what I'm asking is this: do you like eBooks? If so, what format do you most often buy? How many titles do you buy a month? What's your price threshold, IE: you see a title you like, what's the pricepoint you're looking for? Thanks for the help!

PS: Anyone who provides useful info will be thanked on my first eBook's acknowledgments page!

Hey, all! Hope your fall season is full of colorful wonder! Hard to believe we're already half way through October. I've been busy as a bedbug and will be for the foreseeable future. It's a blessing to have deadlines and readers who demand more! Here's what's on the agenda: #1 Dark Sea Annals Book 2: The Errant King is due out end of this month. #2 Mystery of Starlight Isle (Focus on the Family) due to publisher Oct. 15. #3 Berinfell Prophecies Book 3 to release early 2012. #4 GHOST, supernatural thriller to release Spring 2012. #5 Sir George and the Dragon (Focus on the Family) due to publisher early 2012. #6 Book 3 of Dark Sea Annals due to publisher May 15th. I also have three other possible projects that *might* come to fruition. Can you say, writer's cramp? Lol PS: Spare prayers very appreciated!

Hi, Goodread readers! I apologize profusely to all here. I signed up for Goodreads years ago, but honestly just got lost doing other things, including writing. I really had no idea how active and cool things were going here at Goodreads. But now, I'm back and looking forward to being active. I'm on my 10th book believe it or not! More news to come, esp. with The Errant King coming soon. Please let me know if you have questions about any of my books, etc.

Never alone.

-Wayne
