So…Moving Right Along!
I hope this newsletter update finds you well. Before I begin, I wanted to share some exciting news with you: One In A Million has been chosen to be one of forty books being cross-promoted online this week on InstaFreebie in the Thriller/Mystery/Horror Category! All the books are FREE. So if you’re in the mood for stocking up on some books, now’s the time! There’s no limit to how many you can download. Here’s the link: http://instabk.com/thrillers
Things on this end are busy. I just received the manuscript critique from my editor for The Snow Globe this past Friday and I now have two weeks to fully revise the manuscript, then one more week to proof it before it goes back to my editor for a full edit. Nothing like working under a deadline! Lol. For those of you that don’t know, The Snow Globe is a psychological thriller about a woman being stalked that is a standalone novel (not part of a series).
Over the holidays, with the kids out of school, I was only able to get a little bit of work done on the next book in “The Millionth Series”. That’s right: “The Millionth Trilogy” is becoming a series. I’m 6 chapters into Book 4 and I’ve outlined Books 5-6. I should’ve seen this coming. What else does a guy who read every book of Ed McBain’s “87th Precinct” series and Robert B. Parker’s “Spenser for Hire” series think he’s going to do? I fell in love with many of the characters in The Millionth Trilogy, and I didn’t want to say goodbye. I would’ve if fresh ideas hadn’t hatched in the warped nests of my mind. But…they did! Lol. Do you want a few hints? Okay. I’m currently in the process of trying to get a ride-along with the LAPD out of their Hollenbeck (East L.A.) Station and I’m also setting up interviews with a few Catholic priests in the East L.A. area. That’s all I’m saying.
|On January 8th I had my first ever book signing at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena, CA as part of their Local Author Event. I presented, read and signed with two other authors and it was a blast. We had a full house and I even sold a good chunk of books. The staff at Vroman’s has just been phenomenal. Meanwhile, in December, Book 1, One In A Million, sold out at Vroman’s and needed to be re-stocked! Then…last week? It happened again. Pretty cool, huh?
SPECIAL REQUEST TIME: I need your help. If you’ve read any of The Millionth Trilogy (Book 1, 2 or 3) and haven’t done so already, please go to Amazon and post a review for each book you’ve read. Like. Now. Even if it’s just a rating (1-5 stars) that’s all I need and it just takes a minute or two. Here are the links for each book:
