I wasn’t going to say anything about it, and then, doing a random word search, I discovered something worth talking about, so…I’ll talk about it.

I wrote another book.

Actually, to be accurate, I wrote most of it “a while ago.”  “Let the Chips Fall” is a collection of old short storied I wrote back in the 90’s during my care-free freelancing days.  Most of them were published at one time or another (though I think I was only paid for one), and one (amazingly, not published) actually won an award.  From a casino.  For $1,000.

That’s not a misprint.

Anyway, I released it in eBook form last month, to no fanfare, just to see what would happen.  Today, in checking Amazon.com’s Kindle books, I did a search for “gambling short stories.”  Guess who was at the top?

C’mon, guess.

Here, try it: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=gambling+short+stories&x=0&y=0

Anyway, I’ve sold some books.  Here and in the UK.  It’s only $2.99.  And, I’m not telling which story won the $1,000 prize (from Cactus Pete’s Casino in Jackpot, NV).  Though if you buy the book and ask me, I’ll tell.

Anyway, exciting news for me.  Thought I would share.
