I'm pleased to announce that my comic novel "Russell Wiley Is Out to Lunch" is on sale this month for just $1.99 in Amazon's US Kindle store.

It's part of Amazon's "100 Kindle Books for $3.99 or Less" promotion.

"Russell Wiley" is a corporate satire set in the New York media industry as a fictional business newspaper struggles to survive in the age of social media while trying to figure out how to please its new billionaire-owner.

In the words of one Amazon reviewer: "This book is simply hilarious. While it takes place in a newspaper business with all the attending issues of the changes taking place in that world, the politics are more universal for most offices today. The way in which our protagonist negotiates each idiotic or petty crisis is a study in calm desperation. The ending was truly satisfying but I won't say more about that. Do read this one and see for yourself."

If you think that sounds worth checking out, here's a link to the Amazon page for "Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch":

If not, here's the full list of the 100 Kindle books on sale at Amazon this month:

Stephanie Campisi who runs the Australian literary website Read In a Single Sitting was one of the first people to review "Russell Wiley Is Out to Lunch" back in 2010.

When she asked to interview me for her site recently, I was more than happy to oblige, especially as her questions gave me the chance to talk about the writing of "Russell Wiley," the future of newspapers, politics, social media and my attempts to be less annoying:

Thanks, Stephanie!
