At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

I wrote a long and what I found very interesting post in response to a couple of articles talking about how e-books affect authors: how authors (with tradpub contracts) earn less from e-book sales than from hardcover sales and an agent even said readers should feel "guilty" about buying an e-book instead of a hardcover.

But I break down the numbers and the costs and explain why I still think e-books are the best thing for authors (and readers) in a long time. I talk about printing costs, where the reader's money is going, and whether or not paying authors 17.5% of e-book royalties is fair...

http://www.davidderrico.com/blog/

 Right Ascension & Declination, thought-provoking, action/adventure sci-fi.
 The Twiller, humorous sci-fi (Red Adept Reviews: 4.75 stars).

 Each is a Top 1,000 Amazon Kindle bestseller, for just $2.99
 Reviews, excerpts, & my blog can be found at www.davidderrico.com.

I blogged about my 99 cent price experiment, and how much I have to sell to break even or make more than I was selling before I switched my price.

I posted an article called Two Men In A Suit Walked Into The Room.

I'm trying to post regularly and I'm working on figuring out how to post links to other authors' blogs. Still puzzled, but something may come in.
