A new website to welcome new guests!

cover-6.1 front 72On December 20, Norm and Burny: The Black Square will be featured in a review by Paul Hewlett’s blog, published on http://www.sherahart.net. We will give one book to the winner of a blog hop/giveaway program called The Midwinter’s Eve giveaway hop, hosted by I Am A Reader Not A Writer and Bookhounds.

To ease the task of the visitors who come to our site while participating in this hop, we have deployed a much-changed version of the site — better looking, better organized, and easier to navigate.

Spend some time exploring the new site! Be sure to tell us if it does anything unpleasant to you. Also, look for Paul’s review.

Many takers for free Kindle book!

Our giveaway was a success by any measure. Amazon handed out 128 free copies of Norm and Burny: The Black Square.

Not all of those came from our efforts; Amazon publishes lists of free Kindle offerings. But NormAndBurny.com was very busy all weekend, and the logs show that 70 visitors clicked our giveaway notification and left our site headed for Amazon. So we believe that half of those 128 free books went to our fans, responding to our notices. That’s a remarkable showing.

The bottom line is THANKS TO ALL for supporting Norm and Burny!

Rockslide has gone to press!

Rockslide is our first book outside the world of Norm and Burny. It tells an adventure story five thousand years old, of two young couples who form their own new colony, in a new place. It is a story of heroism in war, steadfastness in hard times, courage in the face of adversity, and the endless inventiveness of people under stress.  We wrote this story three years ago, and liked the setting and characters so much that before we were through we had finished several books.  Rockslide is the first; we’ll publish the others when we have time.

Visit http://NormAndBurny.com to learn details and buy copies from Amazon.

Thanks for supporting our writing!
