Blog Tour: Week One Wrapup

Howdy! Don’t be shy. Come on closer to the campfire. Shake the dust off your boots and sit a while. I’ve got a pot of coffee on and some tobacco to roll if you like. Beautiful night isn’t it? Where am I coming from? I’m caravanning on a month long blog tour. I’ve been to a few nice places this past week. Let me tell you about them.

I started off with a guest post on writing in first person POV over at my friend, Ravina’s blog. Hindsight, my novel, is written in first person, after all. I left four tips for writers who’d like to tackle the perspective or those who’d just like to refine their knowledge of it.

Then I rolled into Bunny’s Reviews for a little sit down and chat–an author interview, if you like–about my family, about fears, and failure.

I stopped over at Author’s Friend with another guest post of six tips for less procrastinating and more doing.

And just before I got here, I found my way onto The Reading Cat for another author interview. (And yes, it did sound an awful lot like the first one, so if you’ve read my interview on Bunny’s Reviews, you know the answer to these questions).

I’ll be sure to keep the posts coming your way as I continue to stop off and visit with all the fine folks I meet along the way. Meanwhile, how ’bout a drop of whiskey in that coffee?

Hindsight’s New Description

I made a few changes and updates to the previous description I had posted on here while preparing it to go live on Amazon. Here’s the new descriptididdly and here’s the link where you can download Hindsight straight to your Kindle for only $2.99.

“I am hurtling eight stories to the pavement. There’s a bullet in my left shoulder and another chewing through my lung. I am going to die.” – Shirley O’Shea

When Shirley got out of prison three years ago, he committed himself to being there for his sister, Haley, and his aunt, Winnie–the only family he has left. Then he met Isaac, a man with connections to his grandfather and to the IRA. Isaac said he owed Shirley’s family a favor: deliver a package and get some money. But things are never that simple, are they? What should have been an easy drop-off blows Shirley’s world apart. Now he’s on the run, a continent away from those he loves, trying to figure out what he’s gotten himself into, who he can trust and how far he’s willing to go in order to keep his family safe.

But Shirley has a few skeletons of his own banging on the closet doors, and the hinges are starting to come off.

HINDSIGHT-NIOR2

I’m Back!

Yes, I know. This blog has been quiet for way too long. I have also missed my publishing date by more than a few miles. I apologize for that. The good news is that it is ready. It is finally ready for publication. Hindsight will be available within the week on Amazon Kindle. Stay tuned for further updates.

Book Description

Well, apologies for the delay in publishing the novel. The editing process has taken a little bit longer than anticipated. Rest assured, I am working hard to push it through the last few stages to get it out the gates and onto the track. In the meantime, here is that back cover copy that should give you a taste of what’s to come. Reactions?

“I am hurtling eight stories to the pavement. There’s a bullet in my left shoulder and another chewing through my lung. I am going to die.”

Shirley O’Shea was putting the pieces of his life back together in Camden, New Jersey before a bomb blast blew it all to hell. It had been three years since he got out of prison. He’d been trying to bury his violent past and his family’s history of shame and loss. Now he’s learning that there is more to that family history than he ever knew. Shirley’s left to figure out what he’s gotten himself into, who he can trust and what lengths he’s willing to go to in order to keep his family safe.

But Shirley has a few skeletons of his own banging on the closet doors, and the hinges are starting to come off.
