One thing about this new collection of mine is that it’s a bargain. That’s right. Even the $50 limited edition or the $150 lettered edition. The reason, to me, is simple. The cost of your average limited edition novella - a very short book - is currently running around $45-$60 from most independent publishers.
Ennui & Other States of Madness is a 360 plus page book - and one of the things included within those pages is a 35,000 word novella - previously unpublished - titled The Preacher’s Marsh. I find it odd that (given the history of my books and the market) I could sell that novella by itself, signed, for $45-50 and sell out, but the collection, which offers so much more on top of that novella, is not sold out yet.
Anyway - if you go here: THE PREACHER’S MARSH you can find an excerpt from the novella, and some of the backstory behind it.
Then you should go HERE and order the book - at least the signed trade paperback, a REAL bargain at $19.95…
