Publishing News

August 5, 2022 will be a day that lives in infamy. It is the day that The Basement becomes available as an e-book. I am using Draft2Digital to publish the e-book, which means it will be distributed much more widely than my previous books, which were limited to Amazon.

Here are the platforms on which the e-book will be available: BorrowBox, Vivlio, Baker & Taylor, Tolino, Scribd, Apple Books, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Hoopla, Bibliotheca, and OverDrive. You can pre-order the book on any of these sites, except for the last four (Amazon, Hoopla, Bibliotheca, OverDrive), but those four should be coming on-line soon enough.

Once the paperback is available, I’ll post about that here. For now, here is the blurb and the cover:

Her marriage broken and infidelity losing its luster, Chloe Stenhouse is a high-powered capitol lobbyist drifting through life. That is, until she becomes fed up with it all by ending her affair and leaving her husband Mike, a reclusive workaholic who emerges from the seclusion of his basement office only when he must. Mike, hiding his own dark secrets, reacts unpredictably and violently, reminding Chloe of her wedding day promise that she would never leave him, a promise born of pity and destined to fail.

The Basement is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, lulling the reader in with a woman’s awakening from her rut in life before then pouncing on its prey with male toxicity, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, gun violence, vigilantism, and mutually assured destruction. This story is not for the faint of heart but well worth the payoff.

About kingmidget

About the name. I was the youngest of four. Until I got to kindergarten, I didn't have much to say. All I had to do to get what I wanted was to point, and a sibling, or loving parent, would fulfill my request. As a result, my father coined the nickname -- King Midget. At least that's the way the story goes. I am a father, husband, friend, and lover, writer, runner, pizza maker, baker, and many other things. What I am not is my occupation. It is my job that pays the bills and provides for my family. But, it does not define me.

  2. Congratulations! And good choice using Draft to Digital. I’ve published with Smashwords from the beginning, and it’s been well worth it.

  3. Looking forward to it, Mark. And I’ll be interested to see how the wider market exposure plays out. 😉
