The Great Paradox and the Indies


Therin Knite is at it again with another Awesome Indie Book Roundup, and this one has a ton to offer, including five free books. And if you missed the first one on March 8, don’t despair, here’s the link.

It also features, among a bunch of fun options, a book of time-based ridiculousness by yours truly. Go check out the excellent company my book is keeping, and meanwhile, here’s a time paradox for you.


The Great Paradox and the Innies and Outies of Time Management
by Isa-Lee Wolf. Amazon for $2.99. Avoid the time paradox, they say. Paradoxes will rip apart the very essence of space and time, they warn.


It’s too late for that for Amber, a clerk at the Time Management Center, who spends her days filing time innies, outies and midlies. When she finds herself being hauled up the side of Mount Chicago, sprawled over the shoulder of a man she doesn’t know, she senses that something is off. Then again, it happened on the heels of one of her lowest days, a day she was relieved was over. Until it wasn’t. The Spokes, which should keep everything when it’s supposed to be, aren’t doing their job, and it doesn’t help that their coffee’s not so great either.

Even worse, the whirling cone of infinity is back in her kitchen, she keeps running into herself everywhere, and people are on to her about what she was doing—but shouldn’t have been doing—with her time files. For Amber, the Great Time Paradox is vastly overrated.


Doing Your Taxes Can Get You Free Books


I hate to remind you, but tax time is right around the corner for those of us here in the U.S., so this morning’s post isn’t about a book, per se. It’s about getting a bunch of books.

If you buy TurboTax from Amazon with their Shop Amazon – Refund Maximized – Get Up to 10% More on Your Federal Refund promotion, for every $100 of your refund you put on an Amazon gift card, you get $10 more from Amazon. If we’re talking Kindle, that’s a lot of books. It might make the thought of actually doing your taxes a little more bearable.

Prefer H&R Block? You can get that there, too, but there’s no bonus (personally I prefer TurboTax, I’ve used both in the past).

Happy refunds!
