Christmas has come and gone. The world didn’t end…yet…and I’m still here blogging.
I had a few days off from work to spend time with the family and relax with my beautiful girlfriend. Fun fact: we just celebrated our 6 year anniversary together. These days, 2 years seems to be a lifetime, but 6 years with the Mrs. have gone by too fast. I guess that’s a good sign. Since all of our friends and everyone else in the world seems to have gotten engaged this December, I guess I’ll have to get my life together faster if I’m going to pop the question some day soon. Although, we decided to go out shopping the day after Christmas to the Sawgrass Mall and I nearly lost her due to her almost spontaneously combusting from all of the people walking into her. I will never leave my house the day after Christmas again. Ever.
Love life aside, I do have information related to my fine and few readers. I’ve made the decision to try Kindle KDP Select for 90 days and see how it goes. I get 5 days to post the book up for free during those days so anyone with a Kindle of Kindle App will be able to download the book for free those days. Don’t worry, there will be updates. I’ve already taken steps towards this decision and unpublished Daylight Hours from Nook. It was a tough decision, but at least for 90 days, the Nook version of my novel will be no more. Don’t worry, if you’ve already downloaded it, you’ll still have it. And the paperback will continue to be sold normally.
I’m still not sure whether I’ll have to suspend the free chapters I’ve been posting lately. I hope that I don’t, but to be honest, I’m not bringing in many readers with the free postings anyways.
The sequel to Daylight Hours is still coming. It’s a much larger book–nearly 130,000 words–and I want to make it better than the last.
That’s all for now. I hope everyone had a great Holiday and a good year. Good luck with New Year’s Eve.

You heard it. I’m putting my debut novel, Daylight Hours online for FREE right here!
Every Monday and Wednesday morning I will be posting one chapter of the novel. I’ll be doing this until the very end of the book so that everyone can get a chance to read it without having to spend a dime. As a starting bonus, I posted the first two chapters this morning.
Daylight Hours is the first book in The Kris Grant Series, introducing Kris Grant a young Vampire and Territory Master of South Florida’s supernatural underworld. Vampires are mortal during the day and almost extinct. You’d think that would be enough to make Kris play it safe and stay out of trouble. Unfortunately, trouble has a way of finding Kris whether he’s looking for it or not. Kris Grant isn’t dark and brooding or conflicted with philosophies of immortality, he’s a real guy trying to fight through all the bullshit of the world so that he can enjoy his “permanent retirement” in sunny South Florida. With the help of his business partner, a Werebear with a drinking problem, Kris just might be able to pull it off and survive the daylight hours a little longer.
I am currently working hard on the next book in this series and now that I’ve graduated from FAU, I have more time than ever to make a better novel. I hope that everyone who reads these free chapters enjoys the novel and Kris Grant. I self-published this novel in an attempt to breathe new life into the Vampire and paranormal genre and I hope it’s as much to read as it was to write.
If you would like to support me as an indie author and purchase Daylight Hours, it is still available on both the Nook and Kindle for only 99¢ as well as online in paperback form for $11.00.
