Let me tell you about my new time travelling toilet novel - A BLURT IN TIME.

The novel is about time travel and ghosts. It takes place on Halifax’s Citadel Hill and is my take on the infamous one-armed Color Sergeant ghost who is rumored to haunt the vicinity of one of the old wells of the Citadel. It is dark and it is funny and it is the kind of novel that grown-ups will want to read whenever they think that their kids are not looking.

I wrote this book thinking about submitting it to the Kindle Scout publishing program.

Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. It’s a place where readers help decide if a book gets published. Selected books will be published by Kindle Press and receive 5-year renewable terms, a $1,500 advance, 50% eBook royalty rate, easy rights reversions and featured Amazon marketing.

Why am I doing this?

I believe that A BLURT IN TIME would do really well with a bit of Kindle muscle behind the promotion. Kindle is the largest book distributing network on this planet  and I want to be a bigger part of this big grand machine that Kindle has built.

So how can YOU help me?

Well – to do this I need nominations. Just click this image right here and nominate A BLURT IN TIME and if it is picked up by Kindle Scout you will automatically win a free digital copy of A BLURT IN TIME to read on your very own Kindle.

Don’t own a Kindle?

That’s okay too. Even if you don’t own a Kindle you can still download a Kindle app for free and read the book on your computer screen, your smart phone, your tablet or what-have-you. OR you can just accept your free e-book and congratulate yourself for owning it and never bother reading it.

Just think of how many you times you re-read STEPHEN HAWKING’S A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME.

(and I am NOT talking about looking at the pictures in the illustrated edition…)

So – PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE (I’d say please a fourth time but hey, even a writer has some sort of dignity) nominate A BLURT IN TIME for the Kindle Scout program.

If I get 100 nominations I will – on Youtube – chew up a live Scotch Bonnet Hot Pepper and recite a Shakespearean soliquoy.

If I get 1000 nominations I will actually READ Stephen Hawking’s A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME.

(yes, I consider reading Stephen Hawking to be harder than eating hot peppers)

All them darned multi-syllable words…
