    Just letting all my friends on Kindle Boards know that the price of The Legend of Witch Bane has been lowered to 99 Cents. I just love that price. Don't you?

    I just bought this one -- the print is very light, way lighter than any other of my kindle books.  It was only $.0.80 so I won't bother returning it.  Suggest you try a sample before buying it.

    I bought it without sampling also and it is very light at the beginning. I did a jump to location 555 and it seemed normal density there. I hope that once past the intro and into the text itself it will be normal the rest of the way through.

    Laff your . .  well, belly off, with my comic romp through gay political corrrectness. My novel Cutting the Cheese is now available on the Kindle for $ .99.



    http://www.amazon.com/Cutting-the-Cheese/dp/B0010K2ER6/
    Cutting the Cheese

    Description:
    Luke Oliver has just come out of the closet and confronts a brave new world - a meeting of the Gay and Lesbian Activist Association of New Birch and Sipsboro (GLAABS) - your run of the mill, gay political caucus. Run of the Mill? . . . my @$$. Stepping across the threshold of the Otterson estate exposes Luke to horny and hilarious shenanigans that give the Boys in the Band a run for its money. Who wants whom? Who has whom? Who will win Luke's . . . let's say, attentions?

    A self-effacing, comic romp through the Gay hierarchy, Cutting the Cheese is a reality check from the author's provocative coming out experience in a drizzled-pink world; an outrageous ride down the funny bone. Repeat riding is encouraged. It's every one for themself in New Birch's Gay Ghetto. To Hell with Robert's Rules of Order.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What Readers say about Cutting the Cheese

    "Patterson, as omniscient narrator, understands that our lives and our relationships are full of agendas, often hidden, somtimes greedy, and he refuses to favor one character over another, even the newbie. A fun book (each chapter is named with a different kind of cheese) that belongs on every shelf. "

    "This book provided a whole new insight for me into the gay and lesbian world. "

    "The characters are vivid; (I'm certain I know one or two personally), the setting is masterfully detailed; (I could easily see it as a movie, or better yet... a theatrical production) and the pace; frantic and fevered. Hold on tight, because this trip through the lavender 'newbie shredder' is not for the faint of heart."

    "Cutting the Cheese reminds me of a good old fashioned stage play, very fast paced and irresistibly witty. Great Fun!"

    "This is one nail-biting, back-stabbing, hair-pulling thrill of a ride. With the sweetest of love stories set right in the middle. I laughed so hard, I felt guilty. I give this naughty little treat two over-the-head snaps!"

    "As I read Cutting the Cheese, I couldn't help but be reminded of The Birdcage though Patterson's characters are more engaging and entertaining than the best Nathan Lane produced on the big screen. Patterson's humor and cadence are spot-on throughout."
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Come and enjoy the romp, for a limited time only $ .99

    This one sounds interesting.... and not too bad at $3.99




    Product Description
    Its called lucid dreaming. When you become aware that your dream is a dream, while youre actually dreaming it.

    One of Sloanes buddies had broached the subject as they were sharing a few beers and a few laughs on her living room sofa.

    But whats so special about that?

    Ohits amazing. Once you realize that youve strayed into dreamland, you can take dreaming to a whole new level. Everything becomes more vivid. Moreintense. You feel yourself completely surrendering to the dream. And it takes over. Becomes your world. Its likewatching the most spectacular movie, in 3-D. And the best part is...you get to play the leading role!

    Lucid dreaming.

    It sounded an intriguing enough prospect. A prospect worth giving a go.

    Why not?

    And, sure enough, Sloanes first journey into this heralded other-world does not disappoint. A dream unlike any she has ever experienced engulfs her. Swallows her whole.

    The thrill, however, comes quickly to an end, when Sloane finds herself gazing into her neighbors apartment. And what she sees there, in a shadowed, secret room, will haunt her from that moment forward.

    Unable to forget the harrowing nightmare and all the others that follow soon afterward, Sloane must begin a seesaw quest to uncover the truth.

    Is Mr. Phillips from across the hall really the delightful old codger she runs into around the building? Or is he the monster that dwells in the depths of her nightmares? Kidnapper and torturer of a vulnerable young girl?

    Sloane is willing to do whatever it takes to find out. But the answers that await her could turn out to be the most frightening nightmare of all.

    Now, for a limited time only, Ed Patterson is offering The Closet Clandestine for $ .99 on the Kindle

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0018V3WBO



    A collection of seven poetry books, The Closet Clandestine: a queer steps out, tracks a gay man's sensitivities to the strange world encountered both in and out of the real and poetic closet. Sensitive and bold, and sometimes shocking and, in all cases, lyrical, this is a journey from shy emergence to bold self-confidence. These 180 poems are collected into seven volumes:

    The Awakening
    Catherine and Other Poems
    The Festival at Thebes
    Ties and Rings
    Gay October
    Provincetown Poems
    Songs: Not Just Survival.

    The following review does not appear on Amazon:

    Review from Rainbow Reviews:
    "I read poetry by "dipping" - the book lies by my bed, and I dip at random, reading one, maybe two before bed. In this way the pleasure is extended, it can take months to read through a volume. Poetry should not be rushed. I enjoyed this volume of poetry. For one, the layout is to my taste, lots of white, open space, to leave room for thought. Another thing I enjoyed seeing was the development of the poet, from being 'in the closet' in The Awakening, to being 'out, and proud of it' in Songs: Not just Survival. There is a progression; the poet shares his life and moments. The poems are well crafted, it is clear that thought and love and much work went into the work. I plan to keep the volume by my bed. Read it, savor it."

    Review by L. Adlem

    Thanks you

    Only nine days left before The Rebirth of Rhin goes back to its regular price on Kindle: $3.99. So hurry up and get yourself, or a friend, a copy while it's still priced at only $0.99.

    I'd recommend the book to fans of the action/adventure genre, or any avid fantasy reader.
    I wrote it, so I'm probably a bit biased, but I'd say it's worth a buck. :)

    You can read the first chapter free here:

    http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/25118.The_Rebirth_of_Rhin

    Here's the synopsis:

    The Rebirth of Rhin tells the story of a young mans journey as he sets out into the world of Iora, after his parents die in a horrific fire. Rhins goal is vengeance at first, but he soon learns that his destiny is grander and nobler than retribution. He finds himself in the virtual center of a conflict spanning the ages between Gods and Demons.
    During his travels he encounters many strange creatures, some more friendly than others, as he becomes immersed in a dark secret involving Ioras creator, the tyrannical God, Jiaro. Powers push at him from all sides and soon he finds himself on a quest to destroy the God Jiaro and free the world from violence and oppression.
    There are great battles and genocides, magic, spiritual weapons, militant Gods, disgraced angels and demons wreathed in green flame -- as Rhin embarks on a personal journey of self-discovery.

    Kindle page:

    http://www.amazon.com/The-Rebirth-of-Rhin/dp/B001PTG63K/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1238103893&sr=8-2

    If The Rebirth of Rhin sounds like a thrilling read to you, pick up a copy now. Only nine days remain if you want to take advantage of the ridiculously low price of 99 cents!

    was just released, and could be a bargain at $3.99, even if the regular price is only $4.99.  Usually the Dummies series books are very helpful, so I have high hopes for this one!
