Book 2 has been sent to the Publisher

Hi All:
Well, I sent the manuscript for Book 2, Choices Made: Fathers and Sons, to the publisher and they should have received it today. I should have my proof copy by Thanksgiving and just a few weeks later, I'll have my stock. As it takes a bit for the book to get into channels such as Amazon, etc., I have opened my website to sell the book directly. I am running a pre-publication special for those who want to pre-order. I don't plan on getting a lot of stock to start, but I want to make sure those who have purchased Book 1 get a chance to get their orders in for Christmas. You can visit to read excerpts from Book 2 and see the book cover or get in on the special sale.

I painted this 2nd book cover myself but I am not sure if I really am thrilled about it - maybe because I had a tough time settling on it and then being a new artist, actually getting it done. I guess I'll wait for the readers' feedback to see how you like it.

I get to kick back a little now but that won't last long. I have Book 3 of the series swimming through my head and the itch to get to it. All in time.
