You’ll have to excuse me, dear readers, for I’m allowing myself to be happy with something I’ve done. It’s an unusual feeling, as I tend to shy away from self-promotion, but right now I’m basking in the originality of THE QUEEN OF CROWS.
As several of my reviewers pointed out, no one had ever seen an e-book like the one that Shari, Leanne and I had put together. It’s a nice feeling to know we were one of the first enhanced e-books out there. Admittedly, I didn’t really plan on being one of the first authors to embrace a unique format for THE QUEEN OF CROWS e-book. My goal, simply, was to develop readers who would be interested in the setting and the genre. In my mind, that ended up being a huge success because readers have come forward explaining that they haven’t read a lot of native american horror and they enjoyed the attention I gave it.
Just yesterday, I started to notice other authors and publishers chatting about ways on Twitter to enhance their e-books. I suspect we’ll see a lot more unique e-book formats coming out in the months to come. In my mind, that’s a good thing.
To me, the reader always takes the crown. For without readers, an author’s stories would never get read.

If you have, I thank you from the bottom of Mahochepi’s cold and rotting heart.
