I’ve finally posted God’s Country on Smashwords, so those who don’t have a Kindle can download God’s Country into a pdf, rtf, or even for your Palm. I’m also putting up more essays and short stories for both the Kindle and Smashwords. [If you get a 404, go to smashwords.com, and I'm on the front page. I think it might not allow you to go directly to the book's page because I had to specifiy that there is sexual material in the book, and so now potential readers have to affirm that they're over age 18.]
A little background on God’s Country: it was the first book I wrote that was represented by a fabulous agent. At the time it was sort of like a Tom Clancy book for girls – very technical, very accurate, very serious…but with a woman who’s doing all the ass kicking. Then an editor at Bantam got her hands on it and said she’d buy it if I changed it to romantic suspense. So I did, which basically meant adding lots of explicit sex. She declined to buy it anyway. I still love the book – Jon and Julia are as real to me as any of my friends.
It’s got flaws, which I see now with the benefit of experience, but I love the book, and I love the characters, and it’s very special to me. I hope you like it too.
