Shameless Self-Promotion

Hi, all. I'm happy to say that I've had my first novel published and it's on! (It's also available on Amazon in Europe & the UK.)

Here's the link:

I don't expect anyone to buy it. I was just so thrilled that I had to post the news!

If you happen to know anyone who might be interested in a novel that's sort of adventure/mystery with a little science fiction thrown in, please let them know about it.

Otherwise, thanks for reading my blog. I never thought I'd get this done, although it's always been my dream, so I feel like shouting it from the rooftop, so to speak.

In case anyone goes back and reads this blog, my novel is now available on Kindle. Here's the link:

Give it a try if you're interested! Thanks!

Thanks for your kind comment! Right now, it's only for sale on, but I think if you have a particular bookstore in mind, you can ask them if they can order it. I have expanded distribution, which is supposed to mean that retail stores can order the book. Give it a try! And thanks again.

Thanks! I am now determined to make my novel available on Kindle, but it might take me a few weeks. Please watch for my next blog and I'll let you know when it's available. I appreciate your interest!

Congratulations! I agree with ECGORDON if it was on Kindle I could read a sample and possibly buy it. I have issues with paper dust.

Hmmm. I don't think I want to start sending out chapters. I can understand your hesitation since you don't know the quality of my work. You can read six pages of it on the Amazon site (click on "Look Inside"), if that helps at all. If not, I'm sorry I can't do more but I will let you know when it's available on Kindle by blogging again.

I'd rather not state a price since you will have certain expenses and expectations of a return on your investment. If you were an established author, and/or there was a review of your book from someone I trusted, the price might not be prohibitive. Any chance you could send me a sample chapter or two? If that interests you then send me a private message and I can give you my email.

Thanks for your interest! I'm sorry it's a little high. I have thought of making it available on Kindle, but I haven't had time to do that. Also, it will cost me a little (more than publishing the book did), so I might have to wait a few weeks until I can do it. I'll post another blog when I get it done. (And I'll try to make the price reasonable! What would you consider reasonable? That will give me an idea for starters.)

Thanks again!

First off, congratulations on the publication. Unfortunately, that price is a bit steep for me for something unknown. Have you considered making it available for the Kindle? If you could do that and get the price down a bit I'd take a chance, because the synopsis sounds interesting.
