I had an automated blogroll here, powered by Google Reader, but Google, in its near-infinite lack of wisdom, killed Google Reader. Prior to this murder, all I had to do to put a blog on my blogroll (or to take it off) was to place it in a Reader folder called, appropriately enough, "blogroll" (or, of course, to remove it). I use The Old Reader now for following blogs, but it seems to have no way to something similar regarding the blogroll. If you know of a way to do this, please let me know.

So… It appears that I am going to give Amazon’s new “Library” a try.

Blood Bonds cover

My latest novel, Blood Bonds, will be an experiment.

The book will be available in paper, but if you want it as an ebook, you’re going to have to go to Amazon and get it in Kindle format. That’s because author participation in the new “Amazon Kindle Owners’ Lending Library” requires Amazon Kindle exclusivity for ebook distribution. I can still make it available in paper wherever I want to, but I can’t distribute the ebook in any other place or fashion, including my own website, during the ninety-day library period.

Not sure how I feel about this, actually, but, as I said, it’s an experiment. This will also enable me to offer it for free on any five days during the ninety, which is another thing I’ve been wanting to try. I might as well be in Amazon’s library, since I’m in the local library system. In fact, this book may be a “Hot Pick!” in the local library, meaning multiple copies, with special shelving, face-out, right near the checkout counter.

On a related note, I’d like to ask a favor of any among you who have read any of my books. Could we make today “Tell someone about Levi Montgomery’s books” day? That’d be great! Thank you!
