Other Stuff I Need to Get To: FM3-FM6 concordance updates

Monday, March 17, 2014


Well, the more insane/rambunctious/dedicated among you fans have already used the fact that Amazon takes an estimated 12-24 hours to propagate books, meaning you can search/refresh like a coked-out hamster to snag early copies.  Usually I put the files through the day before and they just sit there unknown until I post links, but THIS TIME I got people already buying the thing before it's even released, so in the interest of fairness to the more innocent and rule following among my fan base...WE'RE DOING IT LIVE!

FM4 is released six hours early.


Beef jerky and Dr. Pepper for all (as long as you buy it for yourself)!

Amazon:  The Foul Mouth and the Headless Hunny by Richard Raley on Kindle
Amazon UK:  The Foul Mouth and the Headless Hunny by Richard Raley on Monarchy Loving Kindle
Smashwords:  The Foul Mouth and the Headless Hunny by Richard Raley in 7 Different Formats

As always, Smashwords takes a couple weeks to get the novel out to Barnes and Noble, Apple, Kobo, etc.  I too wish it was instant, but it is what it is and I'll have those links for you when they become available.  Or, if you're an advanced Nook or iPad reader, you can buy directly from Smashwords itself and download the book in your chosen file format.


  1. Got it yesterday for Kindle and I am happy it is up on, which is where I got the link to buy it. Halfway through and more questions than answers so far...

  2. Yeah, unanswered questions is kind of the main conflict point of the book.

  3. And to see how many times we can switch between hating and liking Annie B? :)

  4. Finished it....

    F### Me!

    When is the next one out???????????

  5. I have two thousand words be awhile. Plus there's that whole trying to finish Sky-Island 1827-E thing.

  6. Doing any shorts between them? I figure if you did one From Welf's point of view, why not Miranda? The Ginger Nemesis view would be interesting, I have a feeling she cares way more than she says....

    One question though, when Ceinwyn said that Annie called and was worried was that before or after he left the hotel with T-Bone?

  7. No more shorts. Focusing completely on novels now.

    And after.

  8. Will miss the shorts, but appreciate you giving answers and talking to us fans! Will be interesting to see how light hearted FM 5 is after all the crap still on the table from 4. Oh I love Mini-Meta, need to see him more :)

  9. I hate you so much right now! Why such a an enormous cliffhanger? Book three answered so many questions and had a nice finished feeling to the end. Book four feels incomplete with so many unfinished side stories. I would say more but that would spoil it for people who haven't read the book. I swear it is like watching empire strikes back and then having to wait for the return of the jedi. Please get back to FM5 soon cause some of us really need our fix.
