The “Judgement’s Tale” Full Book is Now Available

An Immensely Rewarding Journey Ends for Me…

I first saw Solemn Judgement staring at me nearly thirty-five years ago. I gaped at him, then shied away– sometimes I even fled. But I came back to watch some more, and almost immediately, I took notes. I’ve never been completely comfortable around him– he’s like some reclusive athlete or a veteran of war, hardly speaks and daring you to. But fortunately for Solemn, he never taught me his love of few words: mind you, he can rip off a great speech when he’s roused, but Judgement’s the last person to tell you his own story.

JT-full-1He left that to me. And I tried not to, but eventually gave in. The box arrived today from my publisher (aka writing soulmate, aka publishing mentor, aka digital bestie). It was heavy to haul inside: I left it on the floor for half an hour, tried to return to work. Eventually gave in.

… But Begins for You!

Judgement’s Tale has been available in e-book form for nearly a year, if you start at the beginning and are a slow reader. A while back I showed you the hard cover,JT-full-2 a mammoth copy just for me that I swore never to put down (and let me tell you, typing and eating with one hand has been a trial). Now, at last, the full-length trade paperback version of the story is available. I just love how this form factor feels in the hand. Not that I have a hand to spare, so I used a local model.

JT-full-GennaIf you’d like your own paper-physical, actual-factual, Alleged Real World version of the tale, contact me with your email address and I’ll send you the details including postage cost. I’ll gladly autograph it to anyone you like. If you’re in a tearing rush, the way Solemn Judgement never is, it’s available on Amazon right now this instant.

There’s more of Judgement’s tale to tell, and I’m steadily (though not quickly) at work on that. I hope you’ll take a look at this story, in whatever format you prefer, because I think you’ll find it engaging. And when I say that, it’s nothing about me, it’s him. Once you get started, you eventually give in.

Three Minutes to Midnight

One Click, Three Minutes, Everyone Wins

The Tale of Hope Three Minutes to Midnight is now FREE in the Kindle Unlimited Library!

{And darn cheap otherwise}

I offer this simple, standing challenge to one and all. If you’ve never read a Tale of Created with Nokia RefocusHope, make this one your first. This novelette is under 15 thousand words, in which a Stealthic sets out to do the impossible, then doubles down on danger half-way through.

Here’s the really cool part- if you are a member of Kindle Unlimited, you pay a set price each month for unrestricted access to books in the Kindle library. Read as many as you like. And here’s a secret:

:: looks both ways, whispers ::

If you read just 10 percent of a book you’re looking at, the author still gets paid!

Ten percent of TMM is FIVE PAGE-TURNS! And it costs you nothing once you’re a member. You could finish that on your commute, even if you worked in the kitchen.

I did the calculation- any way you slice it, by the time you’ve reached these words:

“The beast stayed at striking distance the entire time, which made the back of Trekelny’s legs tingle with peril.”

Three Minutes to Midnight (Kindle Locations 76-77). Wm. L. Hahn.

… You’ve made it, ten percent read. Good deed done, starving author (well, hungry) supported.

And I dare you to stop reading then anyway!

Indie authors are always trying new ways to get folks quickly and easily interested in their work. But how can you do better than 10 percent of a short FREE book?

So KU members, take my challenge. Read slightly more than the number of words

{From Assassins Creed, but looks startlingly like Trekelny's ascent!}
{From Assassins Creed, but looks startlingly like Trekelny’s ascent!}

in the Declaration of Independence (about 1,450), and who knows what Liberty and Life you may discover (while painlessly helping me earn a little more property). It would be unAmerican not to.

And if you’ve decided not to try KU yet, Three Minutes to Midnight is a spanking fun sword-and-sorcery cliffhanger for just 99 cents. You can read the whole thing if you like, and with half the words of Romeo and Juliet you get just as many deaths, more daring escapes, and I guarantee a hotter love story. Trust me, when Trekelny climbs to the balcony of the High Priestess of Khoirah, he’s going to give her the kiss of a lifetime.


LoH_logoTell your friends, share this post and spread the word– anyone you meet who mentions Kindle Unlimited, or e-books, or who says they’re in a hurry, just lean in and whisper “Three Minutes to Midnight”. No matter the rush, you’ve got time for that.
