I Am The SalamanderDon’t freak out.

Tim Cruz, I mean, not you. Tim is gradually turning into something he never would have imagined possible, something stupid and horrifying and, frankly, kind of disgusting. That’s why he keeps telling himself: Don’t freak out.

Tim is the protagonist of my newest work, a young adult adventure novel I call I Am The Salamander. Last year about this time, 121 wonderful people helped make this book possible via a hair-raising, white-knuckled, thrill-a-minute Kickstarter campaign. Now, thanks to them, I Am The Salamander is ready to go to market.

It is now available as an e-book through Crazy 8 Press, Amazon , and BN.com, and as a trade paperback through Amazon.

If you were one of the 121 stalwarts who supported this project, reach back over your shoulder and give yourself a pat. You done good. If you weren’t one of the 121, well…now’s your chance to see what all the hoopla was about.

If you’re here at my site, definitely don’t freak out. Take your time. Make yourself at home. Browse. Check out the links. THEN go to Amazon or BN.com and snatch a copy of I Am The Salamander!

If you’ve looked at our Kickstarter campaign lately, you’ve seen that we’re only $231 from our initial goal of $4,000, which is great news indeed. But we’re not done–at least I hope we’re not–because I’ve put up two stretch goals I think you’ll like.
  • At $4,500, every backer from $6 on up gets a free e-novella, in which Imperial Investigator Maxtla Colhua of Aztlan: The Last Sun and Aztlan: The Courts of Heaven hunts another vicious killer in the golden precincts of a 21st-century Aztec Empire. If you haven’t read a Maxtla Colhua mystery yet, here’s your chance–for free.
  • And at $5,000, every backer from $6 on up gets a bonus of an entire e-novel–The Hammer and The Horn, the first book in the Vidar Saga trilogy, in which we meet the immortal survivors of Ragnarok, the Norse Twilight of The Gods.
Let’s see how far we can take this Kickstarter campaign. Please continue to spread the word as you’ve done so well already. Please continue to support Lost Days, through which I hope to bring the Italian Renaissance alive for young readers. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1354092292/lost-days
