Very soon I'll be able to share the cover art for THE FEEDSTORE CHRONICLES. I have had one look at it myself and other than two very slight changes I was pleased with it. I asked them to move the longhorns and tramp up the girl. Yeah, I know that doesn't mean much to y'all without the image, but it will later. My acknowledgement page is written and submitted and all that is left is my photo (which I take later today) and the about the author bio.
I'm getting excited and hope everything comes together in time for the planned November 1st release date. Several things are int he works as far as speaking engagements, signings, and readings. I'll keep y'all posted. I plan to do a small book tour in the spring not to the traditional bookstore venues but to feedstore's and out of the way honky-tonks. If you can't sell humor to drunk people who can you sell it to?
As the release date gets closer I've had several; people inform me that the title is incorrect. These well-meaning folks like to point out that feed store is technically correct and right they are. However you can have feed, and you can have a store, but trust me when I say there is only one type of joint that is a FEEDSTORE.
It was also suggested that some might forgo even picking up the book because of this glaring grammatical mistake. I suppose that is true but anyone that is that uptight and anal is unlikely to enjoy stories regarding bulldog masturbation, mythical blowjobs, and irate Emu's by the name of Englebert. The original series of blog posts that inspired the book were called THE FEEDSTORE CHRONICLES and so is the complete coming-of-age story. (For those who missed those posts back in 2007 they are gone now but don't all those stories plus some more are in the book and in a better more polished presentation) Did I mention it will be available November 1st?
And for my writing buddies out there. My publisher TAG Publishing, LLC is holding a contest right now where you too could join their stable. Click below for the details ... Deadline in October 31st.
