It is with great anticipation, a little fear, and much excitement that I come to you today to announce that I am now a published author! I even ended up ahead of schedule!
I am super excited to announce that I now have a Author Page on Amazon as well as a page for the Paperback and Kindle versions of my book. On Amazon, the Kindle version is $3.99 and the paperback is $11.99, although, as of the time I am posting this, Amazon has it on sale for $10.51.
To help promote A Mighty Fortress, I am doing a few different things, first of all, I am offering Signed Copies. If you click the link, follow it to the Books page and click the “Order Your Signed Copy” button. These would make great Christmas presents! 😉
In addition, to my limited time offer of signed books, I am also hosting a Black Friday Facebook Party. Prizes will be given out and historical trivia will be asked. I am very excited. Feel free to join us on Black Friday from 10-3 CDT.
And last, but not least, I will be doing a blog tour starting on December 2, 2013. We will start at my blog and each day I will be on another blog with either a book review of A Mighty Fortress, a book review and author interview, or an excerpt and guest post. My post on December 2nd will have links to each of the blogs and each day, the link will be changed to the more specific post for that day. It should be fun. If anybody has something they would like me to write about for a guest post, let me know. I need a couple more ideas yet. Is there anything you want to know about the writing process? Something you want to know about my book? Anything else you may want to know about? Just ask and I will see what I can do to answer them in a guest blog post.
In honor of the launch, I will leave you with an excerpt:
He stopped, looking all around him. Those kids had him confused and baffled. Where could they have gone?!? It hardly seemed possible that they would have walked upstream in that cold water for more than a half hour. His feet were going numb just thinking about it.
Well, there’s nothin’ I can do but head Northwest and see if I can’t come across their trail somewhere else. They already have at least a half day’s start on me. I’ll be lucky if I catch ’em now.
The scowl was starting to become a permanent fixture on his face. Almost as permanent as his nose. I should just give up. I’ll never catch ’em.
Sure you will. Jest head northwest, find a town, and ask about ’em there.
Yeah. Like no one will get suspicious ’bout me? And by then my face’ll be plastered on wanted posters everywhere.
