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?
To everyone who downloaded their free copy of Hindsight, I got mad love for you, homes. I hope you enjoy the novel. If you uber-like it, be sure to leave a review on your favorite review site, be it Goodreads, Amazon, Librarything, or __insert favorite book oriented website__. I’d love to personally field any questions you may have about the characters, the plot, my writing style, and even my secret beard-growing formula. Just leave me a comment after the beep.
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.
