they’re here…

Yep, four (and a half) boxes of books arrived late morning here in ABQ, NM… the public editions of A Kindred Spirit!  The FDO mark on the back and copyright page is gone, replaced by a little Z (for ZiaLink) and LCCN (Library of Congress Control #) yay!  I checked all the new art, like my updated photo (a tad blurry) from desaturating a color pic (that one -> to the right.)  Plus, it has all the Errata updates  (the mile long list, remember that?) I did check the print date, and as I had hoped, this batch was printed on Sept 16,  my dearly departed dad’s birthday.  How cool is that?  I’ll take a closer look after I blog, tweet and scream out the front door 😉 It’s the Equinox (today) and yes, I’m PUBLISHED!

I still won’t believe it until I see the dang thing on Amazon. That’s the times we live in.  (pause…  I check one more time and guess what —  yes, it’s also LIVE on Amazon!  My novel is for sale on Well, what a trip! I must say my heart pounded when I saw it there and I couldn’t wait to call Mo (long-time friend and part-time editor 😉  amazing, really!  A feeling I will long remember. 

Well, there you have it.  Anyone in ABQ who wants a copy should  come to Hastings Friday night.  5:30 – 7:30 pm. (the Coors store, near Montano bridge.)  See ya there, or be square.  Denny will be there too, Stinky Feet and all 😉

Books on their Way

Got confirmation tonight that the first “final” edition copies of my novel A Kindred Spirit have shipped and should be arriving here in ABQ mid week (Sept 22/23.) Whew!  This means the Equinox Release is on track and I can sign books at Westside Hastings Friday night.  It’s not a talk, just a signing.  Editor Dennis and I will be positioned at the front of the store with books to sell and sign, so PLEASE  C’mon Down!!  It’s the one on Coors, actually 6051 Winter Haven Rd. NW, but really Coors near Montano Bridge.  Hope to see you there!
