The Hammer Commission is doing rather well

Surprisingly, with the release of A new Hammer Commission book, the first book in the series has actually been going rather well and shot up into the top 100 in the three main categories it is in. Not bad for a book I wrote over three years ago!
While it's in the top 20 in the werewolves / shifter categories, it hasn't gotten much below 80 in the SciFi action and adventure category, moving back and forth quite a bit there. 'The King of Las Vegas' really hasn't seem much more action than it originally got however, but then that isn't a story about the main protagonist, Mark, but a spin off of another character in the series.
If the sales continue, there will be another Hammer Commission book, which would be nice as I already have most of the plot for it anyway, but right now I need to finish the new novel, then a POI book, and now perhaps another Hammer Commission story.

And linky for the old book:

So yeah, Amazon and guns on covers in advertisments.

Got called by Amazon's advertising department today about my complaint on their killing my ad.

They weren't pleased to be calling me, and while they claim they weren't giving me the brushoff, I'm not so sure. The reason for why it was canceled was pretty much bull. Then again, this 'new' direction that they've been taking for a while is pretty much bull as well. Special snowflakes needing to be protected from pictures that might hurt their fragile psyches.

Whatever. I suspect eventually they'll be policing our covers as well, but not yet at least.

So on a brighter note, my battles over the problems with them changing my categories did not go unrewarded. I changed categories on the book 'The Hammer Commission' which is the book that comes before 'Wolf Killer' and guess what? In only 24 hours the changes went through! Awesome.

Also, Hammer Commission is in the top 100 in two categories. Hopefully that will spread to more as well. I honestly did not expect to see sales on that book as well, but I'm rather glad I am. Now if only I could find the time to actually WRITE this week. All of this stuff going on has really been cutting into my writing time.

Oh, and thanks for your patronage, as always. I do appreciate it very much!

Amazon doesn't like pictures of guns on the covers of books.


There are people at Amazon who do not like the cover of my new book, because the FBI agent on the cover is holding a gun.

I'm not making this up.

If you're thinking of buying it, better hurry up and do it soon. They've already pulled my advertisements for the book, because of the gun on the cover. I wouldn't be surprised if they pull the book next.

The new book is out: Wolf Killer

I originally wasn't going to publish until tomorrow, so the book would be live on Friday, but for other reasons (I had to have the asin number and URL for a Saturday advert) I published last night and the book is now live on Amazon:

Go check it out, I hope you like it. This is the next book in the Hammer Commission universe, it follows Mark as he gets loaned out to the FBI, and picks up after the first book in the series. You do not have to have read any of the other books in the series to read this one. They all stand on their own.
