The other day, I was chatting with a few friends, and we were talking about our to-read stack. We all have them, the books you’ve purchased queued up to read in no particular order. For some, it sits on our nightstand. For others, it’s on a shelf. These days it might be a collection of files on your Kindle. Voracious readers all have them—myself included.
As we talked, I realized I didn’t have a good way for me to track my own to-read stack. Afterall, while I do read primarily on my Kindle, I have a lot of physical books as well. My to-read stack was all over the place! Knowing what I have and what I could start next was a tad cumbersome.
But, I think I’ve come up with a solution. I’ve decided to start using Goodreads’ “To-Read” feature to list my collection of owned but unread books. This way, when I finish a book, I have one spot where I can peruse everything I have on hand. Since the list is public, I figured a quick post was necessary to explain how I’m using it. (I track books I intend to purchase with a different method.) These aren’t just books I’m interested in, these are books I’ve committed to reading eventually.
There’s no particular order, but feel free to check it out my list below. Maybe you’ll find something in my to-read stack that’ll pique your interest. Happy Reading!

Happy 2018, roaders. This is just a quick post to remind everyone that today is the final day to get ebooks of Red Litten World—the third novel of the Bell Forging Cycle—for only 99¢!
Tomorrow it will slowly start reverting back to its regular price of $5.99. I don’t run sales like this all too often, so if you’ve been waiting, now is the perfect time to pick it up and jump back into the world of the Territories. Links to purchase below.
Remember the first two books: The Stars Were Right and Old Broken Road, are also on sale for 99¢. They too will return to their regular pricing starting tomorrow. That means you can get all three for under three dollars!
Already read the books? Why not leave me a review on Amazon or on Goodreads, and don’t forget to tell all your friends. Word of mouth helps me out and keeps me writing.
🈹 New Year, New Sale
It’s happened, eBook copies of Red Litten World—the third installment of the Bell Forging Cycle—are finally on sale. From today through January 6th, 2018 you can get your DRM-free copies for only 99¢ from your favorite eBook retailer. Hot damn! That’s a saving of five dollars. You can get a book, and you’ll still be able to afford lunch or a fancy coffee. Click any of the links below to purchase.
But wait, there’s more. Since this is Red Litten World’s first sale, I figured I’d triple the savings and offer ebooks of The Stars Were Right and Old Broken Road for 99¢ as well! That means right now you can get all three books for less than three dollars. That’s twelve bucks back in your pocket! The new year is coming so why not celebrate with some new books?
📖 Already a Reader?
Often, my readers ask how they can participate in sales like this even though they’ve already bought the books. Here are a few ways you can help me (and other authors) out:
- Share this deal with your friends and family
- Post about this sale on Twitter and Facebook
- Leave a review (Seriously this helps more than you realize.)
- Follow me on Twitter and Facebook
- Gift an eBook (Available at Amazon, Nook, and iBooks. Details in this post.)
- Ask your local library to add my books to their collection
Any of that goes a long way towards helping me out. Thanks for reading and supporting my work. It means more than you can ever realize.

It’s Tuesday, that means my latest Lovecraftian urban fantasy novel, Red Litten World, has been out for a week. So far it’s been a great launch, better than Old Broken Road which is impressive. I’ve already seen a few people post reviews on Amazon, iTunes, and over on Goodreads which is always exciting. And, early feedback suggests people are loving Wal’s return to Lovat. If you’ve finished the book, please help me out and leave an honest review either where you purchased the book or over on Goodreads. (Or both!) Reviews help a lot.
If you’re new to the world of the Territories or just need a refresher, check out some of the amazing fan art on my Fan Art Pinterest Board. A lot of very talented artists have shared work they created inspired by The Bell Forging Cycle. If you have your own art, please, send it to me I love sharing fan art with the community.
If you haven’t picked up your copy of Red Litten World, there are plenty of ways to do so! You can pick up paperback copies at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s, or direct from My Store. If you’d like to pick it up via eBook, you can get it from the usual suspects Kindle, Kobo, iBooks, GooglePlay, Nook, and of course from My Store.
For those who ordered paperbacks from My Store last week, I owe you an apology. There was a slight delay. I received a shipment of books last week, but they weren’t up to my standards quality-wise. So I had to return them and get a new batch printed and it’s delayed my shipping a bit. While they were readable, I made the decision that they weren’t something I was willing to put out on the market. I have a fresh batch coming today and if all goes according to plan, I should have your books in the mail this week.
Finally thanks again to you, all of my amazing readers. I appreciate your excitement and passion about this crazy little series. It means a lot, it keeps me going. Thanks for making Red Litten World one of the books you’ve chosen to read this year. Enjoy your time with Wal back in the warren of Lovat. We’re not done yet and it’s going to be one hell of a ride.
Red Litten World is out now! The misadventures of Waldo Bell continue. (Links to purchase below.) I’m so excited to be taking everyone from the high deserts of the Territories and back into the claustrophobic corridors and grungy warrens of Lovat. I think longtime readers will find a lot to enjoy Red Litten World, and new readers will have a blast learning about the megalopolis and its strange inhabitants and cultures. Setting out, the goal was to write something that felt both familiar but kept things fascinating. Thankfully, Lovat is a rich enough setting that I could write a book every year for a lifetime and still not explore every corner of the city.
For those who prefer paperbacks, you can pick up Red Litten World from any of the links below. If you’re looking for signed copies, I sell them through my online store for $15 (plus shipping). They look awesome.
Amazon • My Store • Barnes & Noble • CreateSpace
For those eBook readers, you can pick up an eBook of Red Litten World from any of the following platforms.
(Nook always trails a bit, but the book should be up there in the next few days.) [Update: Nook is live!] Is there a platform you prefer that I don’t currently support? Feel free to email me and let me know, I’d love to get my books onto your favorite.
Kindle • Kobo • iBooks • GooglePlay • My Store • Nook
Make sure you add Red Litten World to your currently-reading list on Goodreads, and please when you’re finished, leave a review. I can blog and tweet and shout from my roof, but it’s my readers that make all the difference when it comes to spreading the word.
I hope you enjoy Red Litten World, everyone. Welcome back to Lovat.
We’re drawing closer and closer to the launch of Red Litten World on October 6th, 2015—less than a month!—and as of today there are more ways for you to preorder the eBook and have it arrive on your reader on launch day.
Currently Available for Preorder
Here’re the current channels where Red Litten World can be preordered.
Currently Live but not Available for Preorder
These are the locations where you can look at Red Litten World but not actually preorder it. I guess you can like look at it longingly or something. I do wish there was a way to do it through my store, but as of now there are no options for preorders. You can order a sweet Bell Caravans patch, though!
Unavailable Because Reasons
Yeah, there’s no link for Nook. Which is a bummer because I know I have a bunch of readers who use the Nook platform. (Sales-wise, it’s my second highest channel.) I apologize to my fans who read on Nook. This is in Barnes & Nobles court and based on their unchanging backend this probably won’t be resolved anytime soon. That said, Red Litten World will still arrive for Nook readers on October 6th, it just won’t be all magical and auto-delivered.
So those are the open channels. It’s thrilling to see everyone’s excitement. Thank you all for your emails and notes of encouragement. I’m looking forward to taking you back to Lovat. In the meantime, make sure you add Red Litten World to your to-read list on Goodreads. And, if you haven’t, please go and leave an honest review for the previous books in the series: The Stars Were Right and Old Broken Road. Reviews really help me and your fellow readers out. Thanks!
