“mea culpa, mea culpa,
mea máxima culpa.”
Last year, my first prose novel Bloody October premiered on September 29, 2015 to positive reviews and a few surprised reactions.
“This is a noir novel! Where are all the candles and velvet vampires?”
“Is John Devereux real!? Where can I meet him?”
“I didn’t know you could actually, you know, write.”
Overall, I’m pleased with the response and I look forward to continuing work on my next novel (already underway). But, there has been a problem.
The initial print run of Bloody October contains errors from an earlier draft, which should have been noticed before the files were submitted. We caught a couple and corrected them and thought all was well. In fact, I had the London office of the printer literally “stop the presses” from my hotel room in Budapest so that we could get a new run in time for the party.
The book came out. People have enjoyed it. But then, I found a few more errors. In a rage, I grabbed a red pen and opened the book from page one to inspect it one more time.
I implemented the corrections in both the new print version and the electronic printing, which is now available for the princely sum of $1.00 (or a bit more or less, depending on your country).
In short, if you purchased a copy of Bloody October before January 15th, I will replace your old copy with a corrected one free of charge.* All you have to do is e-mail me your receipt or a scan of the back of the book that shows the ISBN barcode. Send all correspondence to email@example.com. Those that prefer the old fashioned way can clip and mail the UPC or receipt to:
Dark Notes Press, LLC
P.O. Box 740999
New Orleans, LA 70174-0999
For those satisfied with their old copy (or anyone else, really), the e-book can be purchased here:

Apple iTunes Store: http://apple.co/1Pr59vN
Barnes and Noble Nook: TBD (technical problems being resolved)
Thank you all so much for your love and support of my work. I have another novel in the works, along with the rebooted Dead Souls graphic novel.
