'Tis the season for holiday books

Hmmm...seeing as how I just personalized a ginormous stack of books that lovely readers had sent in for holiday gifts, it's only fitting that I let THE GREAT BIG WORLD KNOW, that--yes, I'm always happy to personalize books for whatever occasion. Christmas? YES! Hanukkah? INDEED! Feast of Elvis? WHY NOT? Bring it on!

So if you'd like to buy personalized books for the readers on your holiday shopping lists, please email my studious assistant, taskmaster, and all around majordomo: brittany@jamieford.com. She'll make it happen.

Also, if you're in the Seattle area you should check out the Seattle 7 Writers' Annual Holiday Bookfest at the Phinney Neighborhood Center on November 22. Twenty-eight authors, all in one place, with a portion of their book sales going to 826 Seattle.

Happy holidays. Be good. Santa and the NSA are watching.

New story, just in time for Halloween

For those keeping score at home, the new book is parked firmly at 81,000 words, with an ending to go. I'm hoping to wrap it up soon (and figure out a title).

But in the meantime, I was asked to read a little something at Bedtime Stories in Spokane last week. Soooooo...I came up with WISH YOU WERE HERE AT THE BOTTOM OF A WELL, a bit of a ghost story based on the true disappearance of industrialist F. Lewis Clark.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the piece, so I've posted it for sale as an eBook on Amazon, Nook, and Kobo, for the whopping price of .99¢ with all proceeds going to Humanities Washington.

Happy All Hallows Eve!

High Plains Literary Drifter

Howdy pardner, I'll be winding down four weeks of travel with a quick stop in Seattle for this year's Lit Crawl (I'll be at the Hugo house, reading for exactly seven minutes).

And then I'll be in Billings for the High Plains Book Festival.

I'll be enjoying Friday's big gala event and then doing my thing on Saturday. Also, Songs of Willow Frost is up for an award (but remember, no wagering).

Books on the Underground

In NYC the subway has rats the size of house cats. In London the Underground has books. Like mine. For free. You win, London. I love this idea.
