Brain Cookies

So, this happened…

Screenshot 2018-11-07 12.55.17That’s right, loyal Brain Cookieteers, I wrote a book. A whole one. All by myself! And you can buy it!

Red Darkling is a character I created for “Code Red,” my contribution to the Circuits & Slippers anthology. She wouldn’t let me go with telling just one of her adventures, though. Soon I had a loose series of five stories about her and a growing number of supporting cast members: the irresistibly sleazy Woodman, Bonk the glitchy cat, a bartender named Chuck.

I finally realized Red wasn’t going to shut up until I shared everything she wanted me to share. So, I stitched the original stories together, figured out a plot, added a bunch more adventures, repealed and replaced half the plot, edited the crap out of it, and got the manuscript done.

All I needed then was to beg a phenomenal artist to do the cover, figure out Amazon’s publishing platform, smash the manuscript into the right format, agonize over arcane details like tag words, and click “publish.”

I think you’ll like the result.

RED DARKLING is only $2.99 in the Kindle store. Don’t worry if you don’t have a Kindle–you can download a free reader app for your smartphone or tablet. Or, you can wait a month or so for the paperback version to come out.

I can’t wait to hear what you think, so leave me a review! Put it on Amazon if you really want to get on my good side, and not end up skinned alive by rabid fazzers in my next book.

Only kidding.


Oh, you can also drop by my author page on Facebook, or hit me up on Twitter @la_guettler.

Happy reading!
