Ready for More Frame Travel?

I’ve just added another story to the Short Fiction menu of this blog. Boredom Fighter is a FRAMES story. It shares the narrator and worlds of that series of novels. However, Boredom Fighter is stand-alone (and turned out funnier than the novels). You don’t need to read the novels to understand or enjoy it.

Chronologically, Boredom Fighter comes after the first two FRAMES novels. So the order is:
Nica of Los Angeles
Nica of the New Yorks
Boredom Fighter
… several more stories
… two more novels.

At least 3 more stand-alone FRAMES stories are in the works*. I’ll probably finish those before I complete the remaining two novels in the series.

* That is, in my head and on various scribbled notes. With a bit of effort, one can even compose an iphone note as though it were scribbled.

Publication Celebration Deal: Nica of Los Angeles!

nola cover

THIS DEAL IS OVER BUT STAY TUNED, THERE WILL BE OTHERS.

Nica is here at last and for the next 3 days, just one thin dollar ($1)!

Nica of Los Angeles is a speculative fantasy with detective and dystopian elements. You’ve never read anything quite like it!

When rookie private eye Nica takes on a mysterious case, she enters a world of multiple dimensions called Frames, where buildings and lawn chairs can be sentient, where a stray cat has great powers, where books can be killers, and clouds can be spies. At home, Nica tackles missing persons cases, while in the larger reality of the Frames she is swept into an escalating battle between good and evil.

This is the first of four novels in the FRAMES series.

Cover art by Lars Huston.

P.S. Disgruntlement guarantee: if you already bought it at a higher price, let me know and I will make it up to you.
