A lot of people have commented on the striking cover art for A Pebble Tossed. I love it too, and I wish I could take credit for it, but that's one thing I had to go to the experts for. If you like my cover art, and especially if you're an author in search of a cover for your own work, talk to Jim Geckle (AKA Talking Bag and Screamingecko).

LINKS

 

Here are the websites of some of my favorite people and services. You might find them useful or entertaining. Or not. 

Paul Sekulich is more than just a writer of fantastic thrillers. He has his fingers in everything. On this website he promotes his own work and other books he likes, as well as video production, website design, the arts, and more. There is also a page full of links to great helps and tips for authors.

Another of Paul Sekulich's ventures. On this one he's trying to compete with Ebay and Craig's List. Ambitious, you say? Well, those two have their sites so automated that the average person can't fathom how to navigate their forms to get things up on the web. Paul will eliminate that complication by putting things on the website himself, plus items can stay up for six months for $5.
