So now my book is going to be published! Yippedidoo dah!
The problem with that is, now I hardly can find the time to write Lace Curtain, the second part of my trilogy.
In today’s world, publishers don’t give first-time writers much help in promotion, scheduling of appearances, and generally creating the “buzz” needed to sell books.
So, I’m working really hard every day on promotion. I plan readings in Asheville, North Carolina (where I live); Albany, NY (where I used to live); Springfield, Ohio (where I was born), Savannah, GA, and Boston, MA. If you want me to come to your town, let me know.
One problem is I don’t know many people in Boston. And Boston has the highest percentage of Irish-Americans in the nation.
