A Philly boy now living in Doylestown PA is looking to bust out of an up-and-down corporate environment at much too late an age. Not a summary of a novel; a summary of me.

Hello to you from Chris Bauer. I'm an author who'd like to introduce you to my debut novel SCARS ON THE FACE OF GOD: THE DEVIL'S BIBLE, a new release from Drollerie Press. Paranormal mystery with horror/fantasy elements. Amazon for Kindle, Mobipocket, Adobe, soon to be on Fictionwise; trade paperback in 2009.

I don’t recall for sure how I discovered Kindleboards. Maybe it was through author friends on Facebook (Michael R. Hicks comes to mind; thx for the encouragement, Mike), maybe through my small press publisher, maybe simply from googling. Let's just say this forum is becoming more visible with Amazon's growing number of Kindle releases. Plot spoiler here: I don't yet own a Kindle. Simplest reason is I'm holiday poor. That, plus Amazon is sold out, a Christmas event thing I’m sure, timed perfectly with the release of my novel (rats!), and Ebay prices seem to be holding steady near, at, and even higher than Amazon’s retail price. Wow.

Sorry; I expect this is TMI from this newbie. Would love it if folks in the forum would check out the Amazon listing for the novel and... well, you know the rest.

Happy Holidays.

Welcome to Kindleboards, Chris. I will definitely be downloading your sample and checking it out. Sounds like my kind of story.

I'm Mike's wife, btw. He is around here some place. I'm sure he'll be stopping in soon to say hi.

Oh, and if you're looking to get a Kindle soon, check out the Refurb link at the top of the page. Refurbished Kindles become available periodically, and if you're fast, you can get one of those. :)

Welcome Chris - a lot of the authors seemed to not have kindles until they found this board, now they are as hooked as we are.  Always glad to have another author join us.
