The cracked lines of marred silkscreened writing ran across the green felt on the table. It was worn and frayed, with lighter patches where 100 years of spilled drinks and tossed chips had damaged the surface.

Like many #Scifi authors, I’ve decided to end my exclusivity with Amazon Kindle and the Kindle Select program by offering “Threads” on Itunes, Kobo and Nook.

@GrowMyShelf changes HOW Readers find their next book

The problem with @Goodreads, and most other “book library sites” is that they’ve become slaves to the 5 star rating system. One of our favorite movies is “The Incredibles”.
