Six Headlines for June

Welcome to the June News Post,

I share at least one thing with my protagonists … and it’s not solving mysteries! 

We jog/hike to ponder the challenges of life. That fact probably explains why in the last couple of months my 10+ mile hikes have gone from about one a month to almost one per week. We’ve certainly had our share of challenges. And now, we find ourselves pulled between standing shoulder-to-shoulder in peaceful protest against social injustice on the one hand and standing six feet apart to protect our health on the other. I hope you and yours have found a path toward peace of mind in these unprecedented times.

June was a good month for my last book, Mind in Chains. And I have a new addition to the Mind Sleuth Publications imprint, a 99-cent sale, and three giveaways to tell you about. So, on to the news.


1. Recognition for Mind in Chains

Mind in Chains was selected by the Missouri region of the Indie Author Project.

One of the primary goals of the project is to work "... with top curation partners and librarians to identify hundreds of these as the best indie eBooks available to readers—so they can be sustainably circulated to library patrons with confidence."

So, if you live in the Missouri region, please enjoy a copy from your local library:

Or pick up a copy on Amazon:

2.  Learning/Entertaining Activities for Children

Know a child (5+) with Botley the Coding Robot? Then, you should check out the newest addition to the Mind Sleuth Publications imprint: Send Your Robot to Work: A Coding and Coloring Book for the Botley Robot

Join Botley and his friends as they tackle obstacle avoidance, line following, spinning, and maze navigation in the Office Olympics.This STEM-centered book will engage your child's intellect as well as his/her creativity with 13 different coding, coloring, and storytelling exercises.

3. Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Speculative Fiction for $0.99

You’ll find more than fifteen eBooks in this 99-cent, science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction collection. Some are permanently at that price. Others have been temporarily reduced for this promotion including my book, In the Space of an Atom.

If you like speculative fiction, take a look and save some money.

4. Get a Free Short Story … and Perhaps Follow-up with a Free eBook?

Author Kevin G. Chapman has made his short story, Fool Me Twice, free and widely available. In it, detective Mike Stoneman makes his first appearance in print. Find it at any of these retailers:
