There are three days left until the official launch, but The Timekeeper’s Son can be downloaded now on Amazon. The paperback edition will be available on Monday, September 3rd. Or maybe on the 2nd, to tell the truth.
One thing I can say is that this week has been one heck of a ride. I’ve been doing my best to publicize my book on Goodreads and I created a book page on Facebook. By the way, I’d love it if you hopped out there and liked my page! Anyway, I’ve turned into somewhat of a statistics junkie. It’s funny how putting a book out into the world wide web can do that to you. I’ve been glued to the stats on my giveaway (I’m up to 328 entries, woot!) and, more recently, on Amazon.

Well, it’s official. I am now just under one week until my book launches. I have to say that it is crazy weird. I’ve been thinking about writing a novel for most of my life, and now it’s about to be real. I mean really real. Or Real. I’ve had the book out on Goodreads for a while now and I’ve given away quite a few copies, but it is a completely different deal now. Read the rest of this entry »
My book won’t be released for another few weeks, but I have been putting it out there for some folks to read in advance. This has been great because it’s given me the chance to get early feedback on the book while there’s still some time to change it. Anyway, I’m thrilled that the response to it has been great so far. Here’s some of what folks are saying:
Sincerely, it kept me at the edge of my seat. I found myself wondering: “how are they getting out of this mess?” And I can honestly say that the author found a clever way out in every situation. (Mike Miller you made me bite my nails! lol) – Rhomy, Goodreads.com
This book was a great, refreshing story! I got sucked into [it] right away and read through very quickly. – Nicki, Goodreads.com
The Timekeeper’s Son is a delightful story with charismatic characters, a plot that will hook you, plenty of drama, and a dash of humor. – Shannon, Goodreads.com
Hypnotizing story, A real page turner, Closure at the end (though you will want more!) – Cristina, WordPress Blog

If you’ve been following my posts, you may have noticed that I bring up free writing a lot. And I do mean a lot. Like as in almost every post. I do that because I think it is probably the most powerful tool in a writer’s toolbox, except for maybe the Internet. Free writing is the writer’s multi-tool. It can help us develop compelling storylines, flesh out characters, find solutions to dire situations, and even figure out how to create the situations we need solutions to. And, after we’ve done all this, it will still be sharp enough to slice a tomato (two points to anyone who gets the reference). Read the rest of this entry »
