The Golden Orb Cover
Copyright (c) 2014 Devin Night,

I’m just popping my head up from life to let everyone know that the Kindle edition of The Golden Orb is available for free at I’m trying out a new program in which I’ll be selling the e-book version exclusively at Amazon for the next few months. If it gains traction there, I may keep it as a Kindle only e-book. The paperback is still available at my CreateSpace store, at, and at Barnes& for anyone who likes to turn real pages.

And now … to writing. I’m not quite halfway through my revisions on When We Were Forgotten. It’s taking me way too long to get back into the swing of things, but like I said above, LIFE. I’ll let you all know more when I can catch my breath, which will probably be after WWWF is in the hands (or, more accurately, in the inbox) of my editor. Hopefully after that, I can get some short stories all up in this blog.

While you’re waiting, why not go grab The Golden Orb for free? The promotion ends on October 26, 2015.

Thanks for reading!
