The Nitty Gritty

I received a nice little note of congratulations from my publisher yesterday with a reminder to blog about the book.  What?  Trains and labor pain analogies aren't the same as blogging about the book?? 

You see, my publisher is a very practical man.  There are many things I am, but (said the girl with electric blue toe nails) I'm not particularly practical.

So today's post is going to be sweet, short and PRACTICAL. 

First, the book is out.  But duh, you guys already knew that.  If you like it you can tell your friends who might tell their friends.  You can also tell them it's at both Kindle and Barnes & Noble online.  When they go there they will find it costs a little less than their favorite drink at Starbucks.  Whether you love it or hate it, at least the financial stakes are relatively small. 

Second, the print version is not out yet.  But it's coming....sometime this fall.  I don't fully understand the ins and outs of distribution but I think it's safe to say if you ask your bookstore for a copy of Losing Beauty, they will have a vested interest in making sure you get it.

Third, in reading the reviews I realize I neglected to say that Losing Beauty is the first in a three part series.  The next book in the series is called Losing Hope and as of this very moment I've written 122 pages of it. 

Fourth (and most importantly), THANK YOU!!  This picture of flowers is for you, each and every one of you.  Every kind word, review, note telling me you just downloaded my book and syllable of support means more than you could ever know!
