Those who know me well, know I’m not much of a planner, but somehow I get things done … by the seat of my pants, so to speak.
Since the e-book release of Spring into Summer July 9th, I’ve been busy with marketing the book, writing over thirty unique guest blogs and participating in almost as many interviews.
Read the Thank You posts to see the wonderful people who’ve offered their support … so far.
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6
As I continue writing and promoting, I wanted to take a breather and share some other news with you.
Spring into Summer Available in Print
The paperback is now available. The design of the cover and the interior is by the award-winning JB Graphics—who also did my first book. He does amazing work, and I LOVE it.
Check out his website, and connect to him on Twitter @JBGraphix.
I’d also like to extend my sincerest thanks to acclaimed poet Steven Marty Grant, author of Another Hotel Room who did me the honor of reviewing my book. His wonderful words can be found on the back cover, and you can read them here too.
Look for Steven’s new book, Chasing Moriarty coming soon, and connect to him on Twitter @StevenMGrant.

Fall into Winter re-published
I’ve republished the e-book of my first anthology, Fall into Winter. The main reason for doing this was to regain full control of the book, originally done by a third party.
The downside is I will lose all the reviews and “Likes” I’ve acquired to date on Amazon. As a temporary remedy,
I’ve added the reviews to my blog here. Over time, I hope to get them reinstated to the new version of my book.
Feel free to like and tag me again on my Amazon page. It’s much appreciated. ;)
*** UPDATE Sept 25th *** I found out from friend and author, David T. Lender that my reviews can be transferred from the old version to the new. WHEEE! That’s in the process of happening now. Thanks David!

The SECOND e-book edition of Fall into Winter can be purchased at:
Amazon US | Amazon UK | Smashwords
I’m in the process of republishing the print version as well, however you can still buy it through specific sites listed here until further notice.
E-book of Flash Fiction and Poetry
This, yet to be titled collection, will be a compilation of stories and poems I’ve written for my blog, along with some new ones. I thought it’d be a good idea to offer them in an anthology to increase readership.
This e-book will be available by yearend.
New Website and Blog
I’ve been working with JB Graphics to create a new website. I haven’t made many changes to my site since its inception, and it’s time for a makeover.
Look for a reveal sometime later this year.

I’m researching my new book right now, and it’s moving along—slowly but surely. It’s a mix of John Fowles/Charles Bukowski/Haruki Murakami and a dash of Pauline Réage thrown in for good measure. The full-length novel is a new animal for me since I’m used to writing short stories, so I’m feeling challenged—it’s a good thing.
As for a release date? 2013 is the goal, but don’t push me for anything more specific than that.
I’m planning by the seat of my pants, remember? ;)
That’s all the news I have for now. I’ll update as I learn more.
Your comments—good, bad, or otherwise are always welcome, and thanks so much for the continued support.
