Fly by Night and Sacrifice now on Kindle

I mentioned a post or two ago that my novella Fly By Night was now available on Kindle. Today I can announce that its companion novella, Sacrifice, is also available

If you have a Kindle, or the Kindle application for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch (or if it’s available on other devices) you can now go straight to the Kindle store and buy one or both novellas. Just follow the links! The novellas cost US$2.99 each (around AUD$5 or £2.20)

Jeff Popple’s review of Fly By Night appeared in The Canberra Times on Sunday 4th April 2004. He said:

These nicely paced stories combine appealing characters, mystery, social commentary and a touch of humour in a readable mixture that maintains the right balance between entertainment and reflection. Fresh and enjoyable, the book also makes an interesting change from the familiar, and usually predictable, mainstream crime-fiction offerings.

Successful musician Frank Capriano returns home to Perth for his mentor’s funeral, along with his band-mate and lover, Milo. Frank’s old friends are having money troubles and are trying to make ends meet through smuggling, but that turns out to be only the tip of the iceberg. Soon they have a murder to content with.

Sacrifice (Frank and Milo) (second novella, Kindle)

Frank and Milo, performing as Duo Ex Machina, arrive in Melbourne to promote their new album, only to be distrubed by headlines blaring ‘Second Murder in Botanic Gardens: Police suspect anti-gay killing’. Before they know it, the two musicians are juggling a heavy public relations schedule with yet another murder mystery and threats against their own lives.

If you have already read the stories, it would be great if you could go to Amazon and write a review for one or both of them!

Thanks for your support, and please feel free to pass the message on to anyone you think would enjoy the books.

2 announcements!

The first is that I am holding a new competition on my Facebook page! In honour of the current Federal election in Australia, I want people to post pictures of politicans who have been turned into vampires! Here is a vamped up pic of Liberal leader, Tony Abbott, made using the Vampire Transformer iPhone app.

You can also just draw on a newspaper image, photograph it and submit the pic (or email it to me for submission)

Prizes consist of a copy of The Opposite of Life and Buffy the Vampire Slayer graphic novels. More prizes may be added if I get enough entries!

The second news is that the first novella from my crime novel, Fly By Night, is now available as an e-book on Kindle! Read about Frank and Milo’s adventures in Fremantle, fighting smugglers, homophobes and cold blooded killers!  Fly By Night (Frank and Milo)

Fly By Night was nominated for a Ned Kelly award in 2004 for ‘Best First Crime Novel’.

It’s the first time I’ve created an e-book, so any feedback on the formatting or presentation would be terrific too.
