Have you signed up for email updates about my books yet? Do it now and I’ll give you a copy of my highly entertaining short story “Mercury Begins,” absolutely free!
Travel to ancient Troy with the irrepressible angel Mercury as he masterminds the most unnecessarily complicated sneak attack in history! Never read any of the Mercury books? Start here! Already read one or more of the books? Also OK! There’s no wrong way to read this story, unless you’re using a spatula and a bowl full of goose feathers.
Why am I doing this? Well, between you and me, I think that once you read “Mercury Begins”, you’re going to be jonesing for more Mercury. You’ll finish “Mercury Begins,” move on to Mercury Falls, devour Mercury Rises, gobble up Mercury Rests, and then chow down on Mercury Revolts. And by that time, the fifth (and final?) book of the series, Mercury Shrugs, will be available for consumption!
Also (and this part is a huge secret, even more so than the stuff in the paragraph above, which fell under the moderately secretive “between you and me” rubric), I have a goal of getting my email list to 2,000 readers before The Big Sheep is released on June 28. Currently I’m at 1,100, which mathematologists believe to be roughly 900 less than 2,000. If you sign up, you will help me get closer to my goal, because that’s how numbers work. When I reach my goal of 2,000 readers, I plan on doing a huge book giveaway (details to be determined), so if you know anyone who likes to laugh, feel free to sign them up as well. (Just kidding. Don’t do that. But you are welcome to share this post and urge them in the strongest possible terms to sign up.)
