FYI, the online ebook superstore Fictionwise has now added THE GHOST DOWNSTAIRS to their catalog:


And since it's a "new" book in their system, it's 15% off for the time being. Get it while it's hot!

I'm honored to share the New Book At Fictionwise category with J.R.R. Tolkien's THE LORD OF THE RINGS, which also is out this week for the first time as an official ebook. :)

If you have a Kindle reader, Amazon.com now carries my title in that format as well. And there's a free Kindle application for iPhones and the iPod Touch, so you can always try it that way if you're one of those folks newly wedded to their iPhones.


In other news:

Young men of the world, let me discuss for a moment how stupid those long, baggy basketball shorts look on you. I was walking behind a young man wearing those the other day, and had some time to observe the effect. The material was so satiny, so loose and flowing, and so long, that it honestly looked like he was wearing a skirt. So, if the effect you want is that of walking around in a pretty, silky, rippling spring skirt, then carry on. If you want to wear something manly, try, I don't know, pants that fit.

They couldn't possibly be as baggy as this dude's basketball shorts. They'd get caught in the bike chain if they were.

Maybe so, but I'm not going to be the one to suggest that to him. ;)

Yay!! I'm one of the Kindle people who requested it! Off to the Kindle store!

Awesome! Well, I think my publisher gets their novels placed with Kindle regardless of requests, but still, requests are great! Thanks! :D

*cracking up* Yes, the shorts that are too long to really be shorts, and yet too short to be pants? I don't get it either. I say pick one or the other, already. And put on a belt, and pull up your pants!!

Man, do I hope the baggy pants phase is out by the time my sons are teenagers. I'll just be mortified for years otherwise. :)

I think my son will be doomed to baggy pants by accident ... he's on the thin side and if not for old navy and their adjustable waistband jeans, his clothes would NEVER fit. LOL But still, even now I'm doing a lot of "pull up your pants!" And he's 9!

All hail Old Navy's adjustable waistbands! They're some of the only pants my three-year-old can wear. I have to cinch in the elastic to about the sixth buttonhole on each side. How do boys and men deal with not having hips to hold pants up??
