I am very appreciative of my first international book review. The review was 4 out of 5 stars. The big complaint was getting lost or confused during the constant jumps through time. That was a great review because the internet was exactly that. I didn't want the reader to be sure when was the present. It just exemplifies the Sankofa concept and the whole story is circular. It is mean to be one of those works that you enjoy the first time but you catch more and more that you missed every time you read it :) Thanks again!!!

"Sankofa" = Wyatt Bryson They are running a pilot program where you can offer the novels for free for 5 days every 3 months (Kindle exclusive digitally). It is like a free promotions thing because you make some royalties if the books are lended through their lending program. i put both novel's up for a free 1 day (today). "Onyx and Eggshell" sold about 150 copies today. "Sankofa" has sold over 1,000 today. No money for me of course, but it could be a foundation for good things to come. Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #154 Free in Kindle Store #2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Advice & How-to > Parenting & Families #9 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Lifestyle & Home No money in my pockets but I'm still really really excited about this. The next free day is Christmas day. :) Wyatt Bryson

Amazon is running a pilot program where digital copies have to be exclusive to them to take advantage of some of the marketing tools. Since the lion's share of my novels sell through Kindle already, I'm experiment with the Kindle exclusive program. The print versions are still available all over the web at most online book sellers.

I've been lazy, I will admit that. I've been trying to work out a few more titles with all that has been going on with my crazy world this year ... I can always talk about that later. I've been working on novel with the working title 'The Duncan Chronicles.' I wrote several new pages tonight. I would love to have it out by the end of the year, but that would be a tight schedule. We will see what I can do :) Happy thoughts. Bangerang.
I've updated 'Onyx and Eggshell' with a poem by William Boyd Lankford introducing the story. Boyd is a brilliant poet and his addition has helped boost sales. He has been an invaluable asset. Please check his poem and my novel out. You will not be disappointed.

i hate to just come out and type it, mostly because i don't want my mom to worry because she does that. i've been selling print copies of my books for the few bucks i make on each for gas money or food money for a while now. the day job is such a bad paying joke job that i'd be better off living off of the government tit, but i'd rather not do that. so this week i have sold a few books so i'm so happy about it, especially since it is the holidays.
