I just got back from mountain biking, all sweaty and muddy, and before my shower had to check the Amazon rankings… Number 8 in the Mystery/Thriller/Suspense Short reads!
Pretty great! I have to stop obsessing over it though, so I’m done checking for the evening (I hope). Hopefully it will stay up there for a while and people might notice.

I would have been a beautiful woman by now. But when a body turns to dust before its time—when the mold is broken early—the spirit, like a casting, takes the mold’s last form. Though my awareness has grown—in ways it would not have, had it still been bound by mortal flesh—I retain the likeness by which I was last known: a girl of six years.
Yes, though few who have seen me would know it, I have grown. I have learned.
My soul has not passed over because I have not yet let it. I have learned to become patient. Patience is a virtue, and I know I will taste the reward of its fulfillment. I am patiently awaiting my passing over, but I must have one thing before I am swept away by Elijah’s fiery chariots.
I must have vengeance.
I feel that the time for vengeance is soon—though time is different for me now, as I am a soul unclothed, and not bound by time in the way that I once was.
The house I roam can feel vengeance’s nearness, too. These dark rooms grow colder—colder even than winter’s breath that frosts the windows.
I walk to one of these and look out at the white hills. I love these hills, especially in winter.
The wind outside moans through the trees, telling me that my time is coming. It warns me to be careful, that vengeance is cold, too, and empty. But how can anyone trust the wind? Nobody knows where it comes from, or where it goes.
Vengeance will be mine.

“A strong first outing from Timothy G. Huguenin . . . a tale of psychological horror and spiritual escape.” — Mike Duran, Saint Death
“A chilling entry in the small-town horror genre. Huguenin combines suspense, mystery, and action in page-turning style.” — Scott Nicholson, The Red Church
This Friday is the day that When the Watcher Shakes releases to Amazon in ebook and paperback! That’s less than 5 days! (I have trouble sometimes with countdowns–do you count the day you’re in or start from the next day?)Anyways, remember to sign up for email updates so you don’t miss the release (you’ll also get a free preview of the book). Also, soon after the book hits the marketplace there will be a Goodreads giveaway. Two free signed copies will be up for grabs! I just have to figure out how to work the Goodreads giveaway website. Shouldn’t be too hard.
Amazon is a nightmare if you’re trying to keep your book collection small in case you need to move soon (a “small” book collection in my case means a full bookshelf in my room, six large boxes full in storage, and other books scattered all over the house). I’ve recently been slowly trying to purge the ones I don’t really need to hold on to. Like today, I just made myself part with another boxful of books in order to feel a little more comfortable in the amount of packing I’ll need to do if I ever move out of this tiny apartment.
And then I find stuff like this:
For like, you know, when I have kids.
I’ve put off reading this classic because I want to have this one, the 50th Anniversary Edition. Is is that important? I guess it is to me. I’m a little weird like that.
I’m intrigued by the idea of steampunk literature. I just haven’t read any yet.
What to do, what to do? I’ll probably end up buying these eventually. Trying to be content for now. I really don’t have much room for more (not that I ever turn a book down if I find a good deal).
I am planning to self-publish my novel on Amazon, making eBook versions and paperback versions available with Amazon’s CreateSpace Print-on-Demand service. I’m also looking into the possibility of making it into an audio book, but I’m not sure if I’ll do it this time around or sometime later down the road.
