Update #2 - Checking In Oct. 5, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Just checking in to say hello.

Thanks to all the interest from you all, I have had 59 pre-sales. This is great, and it's already caught the attention of six publishers! This is exactly why I am using Publishizer; it makes the grind of finding a good publisher a little easier.

You still have eleven days to pre-order a copy. If you haven't already pre-ordered yours, it's not too late! If you have friends/acquaintances/colleagues you think might be interested, let them know.

If you all can think of some other incentive that might attract more interested readers, I'd love to hear about it. The more readers I can get, the more likely a publisher will take notice. 

Finally, if you live local, come see me at the Patrick Henry Library here in Vienna, VA. I'm speaking at their annual indie author day on October 14 from 2p to 4p. I will have copies of my other novel available for sale, Death and Repair. You can check it out now on Amazon. 

Can't wait to ship out your copies! Write me if you have any questions or comments. Love to hear from you!
