I’ll be putting one of my titles up for free next week, so if you haven’t downloaded the FREE Kindle app, you’ve got a few days to do so.   

Pretty much exactly how I pictured a scene from Confessions of a Teenage Band Geek.  Yay Julia!!

It’s my thing every year…but if you’re looking for a unique marching band related graduation gift for your favorite senior, why not one of my books?  Or money, everyone loves money.  A Fine Line, The Line Up and Major Pain all center around a senior season.  Just saying.

All the best to Class of 2014!

And wouldn’t my books look great wrapped in one of these?

I completely forgot that I made this book trailer last year.  Anyway, here’s a quick minute and 15 seconds for the complete Line series.

Hey gang - bit of a favor to ask!  Tomorrow (March 17th) is my birthday.  You know what would make my year week day?  Book sales!  If you have a few extra bucks hanging around on a gift card or in your bank account, I’d love it if you considered buying any (or all) of my six YA marching novels.  Waking up on my b-day to have a higher rank would be like woah.

They are available on:

iTunes

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

If money is an issue, you can still help - positive reviews on any of the above or Goodreads/Shelfari also = awesome.  Even reblogging this would be helpful!

Shameless obvious self promotion is both shameless and obvious.

Hey - I adapted my last book for print.  Just in case you wanted a copy…

So, my books make good gifts.  Just saying.

Hey gang - so a lot of companies launch their Cyber Monday deals today. I’d actually like to think that my books are always reasonably priced, but in case you were looking for additional savings for any books because yay! reading…  

  • 30% off any book on Amazon with code BOOKDEAL (not sure if it works for Kindle versions or not).
  • Barnes and Noble, 25% off any item: CMONDAY25

…I can virtually personalize copies of any of my books via Authorgraph!  Just make a request. #treatyoself

Yes, I’m posting before Thanksgiving.  #dealwithit

The holidays are about to take over and whether or not you want to buy into the craziness, let’s face it, it’s fun to give things to people you care about.  Here is a list of suggestions for the band geek in your life:

1.  DCI, anything.  In fact, how about the DCI 2013 World Championships DVD? Holy balls, how did I know how expensive this was?  Maybe instead of the DVD, how about an IOU for tickets to some 2014 event?

2.  On the same topic, why not get your friends souvies from their favorites corps.  That way, it’s like two gifts in one – supporting a corps and making your friend happy.

3.  Have a friend who likes to read?  There is a lot of great stuff out there, including…my books!   I’m actually happy to announce that The Line Anthology (as well as the 4 of the Line series books, Confessions of a Teenage Band Geek and Major Pain) is now available for digital download (and very reasonably priced). Obvious self promotion is obvious.

4.  Even MOAR books!  Not for the Faint of Heart (by Spike Van Wert), Building the Green Machine (Colt Foutz), and for some humor, Band Nerds Poetry From The 13th Chair Trombone Player, The Marching Band Nerds Handbook (both by DJ Corchin).

5.  Have a friend auditioning for a corps?  Instead of a lame gift certificate, why not give them money specifically dedicated to their tour or audition fund?  It’s a personal gift that will mean a lot.  (Or, hey, have some extra airline miles - think about donating them so your friend can travel).

6.  Don’t have a lot of money?  Who does?  How about getting the address of one of your virtual friends and sending them an actual card?  In the mail.  Burn them a CD.  Use stickers.  Make someone’s day for the cost of a stamp…  Useful in the kitchen?  Try baking!  You can show someone you care for them in the thought behind the gift.

7.  Anything from the Tone Deaf store.

8.  A subscription to Halftime Magazine.

9.  Check out Etsy for any number of original jewelry / artwork / one of a kind music stuff.

10.  Some gear from Lot Riot.

11.  Know a good photographer?  I know a few!  ;)  Have a great image of you, your section, or your band from this season?  Why not print and frame it?

Also, if you can tell me where to find this pencil, I would be super excited:

So, what am I missing?  What would you like to receive this holiday season?
