Short Story Collection Now Available In Paperback

September 30, 2015

Heads up, true believers! Just wanted to let you know that my short story collection “A Long, Slow Burn and Other Stories” is now available in paperback, as well as for Kindle and other tablets, on Amazon. Just type my name into the search engine, and the collection should be one of the top hits. It goes for $10.99, and can be shipped to you, wherever you are. With the collection being made available, this is the the culmination of a process that started in July. I now have the three novels and the collection out there for Kindle and in paperback, and early sales have been good. What’s next for me? I’m currently in the process of revising my brand new novel, which is fantasy, the first of a series I’ve had planned for many years. Once the rough draft is ready, I’ll be contacting some literary agents, and seeing if traditional publication is possible for this one. If that turns out not to be the case, however, it’s good to know that self-publishing is always an option. Thanks to everyone who bought the books so far, and spread the word! My books are on the market, and all four titles can be on your bookshelves now. More soon, folks.

Novels Now Available In Paperback Form

September 6, 2015

Hello folks, I’m pleased to announce that three of my novels, Transitional Period, The Woods, and Hell To Pay, are now available in paperback form on Amazon. Just type “Steven Finkelstein” into the search engine, and the top four hits are mine. You can order the three novels for Kindle or other tablets, or, if you want the paperbacks, you can order them and they’ll be sent to your home! The short story collection, A Long, Slow Burn and Other Stories will be available in paperback form in a couple of weeks.

I helped to design the covers for all four of these titles, and they look great. They represent the culmination of several years of work, and it’s very gratifying to see them in print for the first time. I’ll be doing a major ad campaign for them in the next few weeks, but you can also help by spreading word of these titles to other recreational readers you may know. You can also help by leaving positive feedback in the “Review” section for each title on Amazon. Support your local authors! More soon.

Short Story Collection Now Available On Kindle

August 8, 2015

Hey folks, I just wanted to mention that my new collection “A Long, Slow Burn and Other Stories” is now available for Kindle and other tablets. If you go to Amazon, and type my name into the search engine, the top four hits will be my books, the three novels that became available last month, and the new short story collection just listed. It’s the novella “A Long, Slow Burn,” plus seven more of my best short stories, hand-picked by me! It costs $4.99, the same as the other novels. Some of these stories are being printed for the first time ever, and they’ve never been available in a collection like this, so check it out. Also, I’m hard at work getting all four titles available for print-on-demand, and I hope to have that up and running in the next few weeks, for those who like the feel of an old-fashioned book in their hands, like myself. I’ll post here on the site when that happens, but for now, I encourage those of you with Kindles or other tablets to get the novels, and the new collection. Support starving writers! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. More soon…

Books Now Available On Kindle

July 5, 2015

I’m very excited to announce that three of my novels, Transitional Period, The Woods, and Hell To Pay are now available for purchase on Amazon, to be read on Kindle. If you have a Kindle tablet, you can go to www.amazon.com and type my name, Steven Finkelstein, into the search engine. The top three hits should be my books. You can purchase any of the three at a cost of $4.99 each, or, if you’re a Kindle unlimited subscriber, you can read them for free! This is a great opportunity to show your support of my literary efforts, and I’d also like to mention that I’m putting together a collection of my best short stories that will soon be available on Kindle as well. When I’ve got that put together, I will certainly mention it on the site. Also, I’m in the process of making all four of those titles available on Create Space, an Amazon print on demand company. For those of you unfamiliar with this concept, print on demand means that print copies of my books will be available for sale on Amazon, for those that prefer that option (old fashioned, I know, but I prefer the printed version vs reading books on a tablet). This means that pretty soon my books will be available in print form for the first time ever, something I’ve dreamed about ever since I decided to become an author. I will definitely mention on the site when the print on demand option is available…that’s it for now, kids. Check out those Kindle books on Amazon, and support your local starving artist!

Third Segment of Horror Story Published

June 8, 2014

Heads up, true believers. I’m pleased to announce that the third and final segment of my short story “Snow” is now available for your reading pleasure at www.hellohorror.com. I’ve enjoyed having the story published piecemeal. It’s kind of a throwback to leave the reader in suspense, and for a story with this sort of content, I think the serialized format has worked nicely. Thanks to the staff at Hello Horror for publishing my work, and perhaps we’ll collaborate again in the future. It’s not too likely there will be too many of my shorter works being published in the immediate future, as I’m concentrating mainly on my latest novel. I’ll update the blog as to how that’s progressing, while trying not to think too much about how print publications of fiction in general are being threatened by Amazon and their desire to dominate the market. It seems that, while breaking into the industry has always been a stiff challenge and an uphill battle, with the uncertainty of what media form is going to deliver fiction to readers in the future, it’s now harder than it’s ever been. As a writer, I guess the best thing for me is to just try and keep the creative juices flowing and soldier on with the latest project, rather than concentrating on how and under what circumstances the finished product might be published. The times, they are a changing, for both writers and readers. If I ever do have a novel picked up for major distribution, who knows if you’ll be reading it via your Kindle on Amazon, or whether you’ll actually be holding the book in your hands, or whether there’s yet another way my stories will find their way into your lives. Best cross that bridge when we come to it, I suppose. More soon.
