Hello there and Happy Tuesday to you! I apologize for my late post, but I have been extremely busy. Working full-time and writing has its drawbacks at times, nevertheless it is a worthwhile passion of mine that I do not mind stressing a little over. First things first, I wanted to give you an update on a few of my writing projects I have been working on. My upcoming short story entitled Underneath the Pecan Tree will be available for pre-order September 16th on Amazon. That is a two week delay and I sincerely want to apologize about that. I have been so focused on getting my debut novel Poka City Blues in printed form that I fell a little behind on finishing up this exciting short story. I am happy to report that I am on track now and things are going as planned. I do not anticipate any further delays. Whoop! Whoop!
Speaking of my debut novel Poka City Blues, I am thrilled to share that on October 1st it will be available in both Kindle and paperback. I am floored at the number of readers who inquired if or when this book will ever be made available in paperback. When I first published this book a little over a year ago, I had no intentions of making it available in paperback. That notion of mine has since changed due to the fact that it is being requested in paperback by a number of readers. The number of readers requesting Poka City Blues in paperback is growing each and every day and I cannot tell you how honored I am to make this book available to other readers. It is going to be pretty exciting for me to see this touching story in printed form.
To show my appreciation and gratitude, I am going to give away five autographed copies of Poka City Blues within the next coming weeks so stay tuned on how you can win your own copy. Adding to that, I am also going to give away five advanced copies of my upcoming short story entitled Underneath the Pecan Tree so be sure to stay tuned for that as well. As a writer, I want to give back to readers because if it was not for them, writing would be pointless. After all, there is no sense in writing a story if there is no one willing to read it. As I continue on my journey as a writer, it is my hope to develop more stories that have the potential to not only entertain, but to ignite hope, empowerment and inspiration.
Until next time…
