I wish you all a Happy New Year and hope 2020 is your best year ever. 2019 was a good year with the release of my second novel, Straight River. I had a ton of fun with my “Straight River Book Tour” in 2019. It was as well received by readers and reviewers as was Castle Danger.
One of my favorite parts of being an author is meeting so many avid readers. They are some of the most interesting people I’ve ever met. Thanks for buying my book and making my day so many times when you gave me an unsolicited compliment on either Straight River or Castle Danger.
Second, if you’re dying to know what the “Best Book I Read in 2019” is, sign up at the top right of this page– under “Newsletter.” Email newsletter subscribers are the first to learn about book releases, appearances, and other fun things that I don’t share on this blog until later. I send my newsletter monthly. And, I’ll never give or sell your email address to anyone.
Although I didn’t reach my goal of obtaining 30 new reviews on Straight River by today, I’m thankful for those of you who DID visit a website and post an online review. Remember, if you are hesitant to WRITE a review, Goodreads.com allows you to post a STAR RATING only.
Finally, I’m looking forward to 2020 with more writing and more book appearances. I hope to continue making dozens of new friends in the writing and literary world. And, because most of those interesting people hang out in bookstores, please patronize your local independent bookstore. To find the store nearest you, visit indiebound.org.
