Well, we here at TANSTAAFL Press endeavor to be transparent. When we mess up, we say so up front, like the travelling error in Toy Wars, or for using REND instead of RENDER in the same book.

Well, we’ve done it again. As usual, the Ooopsie Award goes to author Thomas Gondolfi. He also gets the No-Prize for finding it. As he is preparing the next book in the CorpGov Chronicles, and anthology with the working title “Window of Opportunity” he needed to have a physical description of Grandma Ice. He dug down into all of the previous books.  In doing so he found that in Thinking Outside the Box he said that GMa Ice was 74 years old. Color him surprised when his character notes said she was 94.  When he went looking he found the ninety referent in The Bleeding Edge.

“Good grief! I can’t believe I pulled such a bonehead maneuver,” Tom said when he discovered it. “So if any of you nit-pickers find this, her real age is 94 at the time of the base trilogy. I humbly apologize for not having done the research on that point.”

by Thomas Gondolfi Many of you have heard me said that I’m retiring from my “day job” and thus would be able to devote more time to writing and marketing my WONDERFUL books. Many of you have also heard that the date for my retirement is/was 5/15/18 or about 9 months ago. If you haven’t […]

“Well… It’s Your Cow” anthology isn’t published by TANSTAAFL Press but rather Impulsive Walrus Books. However our premier author, Thomas Gondolfi, had a piece accepted and published within it. When Thomas Gondolfi heard about the anthology concept (all stories have to start with the line “Well… It’s your cow”) by Impulsive Walrus Press, his quirky sense […]

My name is Thomas Gondolfi, author of many novels and owner of TANSTAAFL Press. I am the primary judge of the contest held at Nanocon in March 2017. The NanoCon convention chairman, Togusa, looked over the top three and gave his inputs. All contestants should be proud. On a scale of 0-20, the scores ranged […]

2016 was the year of the Monkey. Honestly it showed.  2016 has not been a stellar year for TANSTAAFL Press in meeting our commitments. We are hoping 2017 (year of the Rooster) is off on the right foot. We’ve already had several successful conventions and even better, we just sent Enter the Apocalypse off to […]

We’ve been asked pretty much from our first public appearance to create and sell audio books. We finally got the financial wherewithal to take a stab at this. And what book would we do other than our best selling “Toy Wars”?  Popular voice-over artist John Hough, himself a fan of Toy Wars, narrated our audio version of Toy Wars […]

TANSTAAFL Press has been keeping a secret. We haven’t been doing it out of malice or spite. We did it because we weren’t sure it would finally come off. It is rare a convention goes by that someone DOESN’T ask if we carry our title on audio books. The usual reason: I don’t have enough […]
