Well, a lot of you did anyway. Since the Tales of the Red Panda novels started appearing, folks have been asking for e-book editions. I held off for a while, but the format doesn't seem to be going away... so here we go. I've gone with Smashwords, since they'll make the books available in many different formats and eventually ship to all of the individual e-bookstores. But frankly, I'd rather you ordered from the Smashwords site directly, as it involves rendering to fewer Caesars, if you take my meaning. So if you're one of the e-reader set, shop away! Here's the link to the first volume - available now! Tales of the Red Panda: The Crime Cabal e-book edition!

Yes, gang, we've enjoyed the radio play on CIUT so much, we're hungry for more! The Red Panda Adventures and Black Jack Justice are now available for broadcast license through PRX, the Public Radio Exchange, and they're free as a bird for any station that wants to play 'em!
What we're hoping each and every one of you will do is email the links to the series pages to the program director or general manager of your local public radio station, campus or community station, what have you, with a quick note about why you love the shows and want to hear them over the air!
Help the DRT army grow! Email these links today!
