Here's a collage of some of my paintings this winter so far..

Off to the right, you'll see a collage of eight of my paintings this winter so far..and it's not over yet. I should have well over a dozen by March or April. I just received permission to paint a scene I really like, so that will be next.

With regard to book sales, the figures for 2012 are almost in. I can see that Apple will continue to lead the pack over Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Sony, Kobo, Diesel, etc. Barnes & Noble is making an international push and I can see some results even this early.  When I receive final totals in a couple weeks, I'll publish percentages from each sales channel.

Flatline Virus, my first book, a Zombie thriller, continues to lead the rest. Be sure to go to the Apple bookstore (the link is a few lines down on the column to the right) to check it out. It is four star based on the reviews of 29 reviewers.  If you like guns, I pay attention to these in the story (check out one of the reviews). That's how our heroes defend themselves, although not only from the undead.

2013 will be rougher on independent authors as there will be more competition...i.e. many more books written, published and ready to read and only so much demand. One good thing is that digital books and reading on digital devices will take over hard and soft cover books this next year.
