BUSCAFUSCO is Alive!

BUSCAFUSCO: Fun & Games is finally available on Amazon!

In the end it was a problem of file coding, or so the kindly gnomes at Amazn KDP told me. So I reloaded the file – this time as a rough RTF, and in about 36 hours the ebook has gone live.

So, if you are curious about the ebook that Amazon did not want you to read… well, now you can read it.

ADDENDUM:  with the release of the ebook on Amazon, the special promotion on Gumroad has ended. Thank you to all of those that used it.

And BUSCAFUSCO’s is one of my favorite in this sense. There is a simple formula, there is a cast of characters I am familiar with and I like to write about, there is the Belbo Valley as a venue, an inexhaustible source of strange ideas and weird crimes.
