The Road Less Traveled

So it's no secret I wrote this novel ... a women's fiction novel to be exact.

The e-book came out in May and has gotten great reviews. I like that I've heard from quite a few people telling me how much I/the book surprised them. Then true to its name TWISTED ROADS veered from the straight and narrow. the print edition got lost in a loop somewhere between my publisher, the printer, and the distributor.

One delay led to another. Release days got pushed back. One date after another came and went. My blog tour fell apart. The podcasts and radio interview I had set up slipped away. My release party and bar room reading flat-lined.

Now I'm trying to put things back together, but finding it harder to regather the troops than it was to rally them in the first place. The print is available for order now at Amazon and other fine book retailers. Though the cover art and reviews for the e-book have not meshed with the print just yet. Hopefully soon. Anyway I want to thank those who have read the book, reviews it, and told your friends to do the same. We writers need people like you. I'm lucky to have y'all.

Luck with it all, man. It's a crazy business.

Maybe this will prove to have a silver lining for you? The closer your publicity items get pushed to Christmas, perhaps the more sales you'll get? Isn't Christmas the biggest time in the book industry for sales?

Interesting how things detour in bizarre directions.

Looking forward to picking up the print copy in the very near future.

What Charles said Travis...you want to take over my blog one day *shrug* that'd be cool, just say when and how you want to do it.
