So this just made me cry (in a good way). I just found out that my book is available for pre-order at my two favorite bookstores: Bookends & Beginnings in my first home of Chicagoland, and Bookmarks in my second home of Winston-Salem, NC. So overwhelmingly happy right now. Put your zip code in here to find HW at an indie near you.
And they have a less than 2% acceptance rate! Aaahhhhh!!!
My coming-of-age novel Here’s Waldo is now available for pre-order, and it’ll release October 1, 2020–1 month after my birthday! I put everything I had into this book, so to say I’m excited is a severe understatement. So thrilled to share this with you! You can pre-order my book here. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Interior formatting is done, and they’re now going to mail me a physical proof copy of the book for final approval! Here’s the title page and thanks/dedication page, which is appropriate, because I’m feeling incredibly thankful right now. I’m going to hold this book in my hands soon! Huge thanks to all of you who have kept up with this project over the years and shown your support. You’re all awesome!
I’m so happy to be featured in FEED today, and in very good company at that! Jacqueline Brown’s “Oatmeal” is incredible, and Jessica Evans’ “Kitchen Magic” is absolutely stunning. Check out the latest issue here. Thanks, FEED!
I just got the first interior-formatted PDF of Here’s Waldo, and words cannot describe how excited and ecstatic I am right now. After all this time–six years of writing, rewriting, and sending this thing out, the finish line is actually in sight. Wow.
For anyone who’s heard me talk about Here’s Waldo over the years and wanted to know more about it, here’s a blurb straight from the back cover of the book! We’re finalizing the cover right now, and on the internal side of things, editing and proofreading are done! The text is essentially “locked” now, and from here we’ve got folks figuring out the internal formatting for both print and ebook formats, along with fonts and all that good stuff. I seriously can’t say enough good things about Atmosphere Press. They’ve been fast and efficient, helpful and professional throughout the entire process. I’m literally watching a dream come true, and they’re responsible for it. I can’t wait to share this story with all of you!
This just made my day. 😁
Some very exciting news:
1. I got approval to share the cover of Here’s Waldo, and here it is!
2. Our timeframe for release as of right now is around October of this year!
3. We will be doing pre-orders on Amazon, and I’ll drop the link for that once it’s live!
My flash piece “Clouds of Static” is live in OPEN: Journal of Arts & Letters! While you’re there, check out all the other work they publish too. They run a really great magazine over there.
