On Tuesday, the second edition of Holy Water (the prequel to Eddie’s Boy), will be launched by Warren Publishing. Success can be difficult to define for any endeavor, and for fiction publishing, a case can be made that completing a novel and securing a publishing contract meets the definition of success. I agree. BUT… still, strong sales and critical acclaim wouldn’t be bad, either. So, with advance gratitude to anyone reading this and supporting my modest literary career, here’s what you can do to help:
- Buy the book and tell your friends about it. Social media is a great tool (one that I struggle to use optimally).
- Remember it makes a great Christmas gift.
- If you’re in a book club and would like a virtual visit from the author, let me know. I’d be glad to join and discuss the book.
- If you have an independent bookstore in your area, ask them to stock Holy Water. If they sponsor author events and would be willing to have me, let me know and I’ll put the marketing folks on it.
A lot to ask, perhaps. Regardless, please know that I’m incredibly grateful to you for reading the book. That’s plenty, but for you overachievers, thanks for considering this. Hope to see you at a bookstore near you.
