we're Working with amazon
Looking back through some old files, I realized that Dad and I launched this website in December 1999. At about the same time, Amazon unveiled its "affiliate" program--this enabled website owners to direct traffic to Amazon and collect a small advertising fee if the visitor then made a purchase. The notion of sending readers to Amazon to buy his books didn't sit well with Dad. He enjoyed working with the local booksellers who often hosted signings and other events on his behalf (Kate Mattes, who ran Kate's Mystery Books, was a particularly dear friend). It was not hard to imagine the kind of effect online buying habits might have on these bookstores. So we decided against joining the affiliate program, even though it would have generated a bit of scratch to keep the website up and running.
Fast forward 14 years. Although the majority of Dad's books are now out-of-print, Amazon has made 39 of them available for the Kindle. These eBooks can be purchased
only through Amazon. So if you're interested in the Kindle version, please consider clicking through to Amazon from this website (just click any book cover you are interested in). If you're after a hard copy, check with your local bookseller first... they would love to hear from you.
