As I relish in excitement and wait for reviews, my spirit was lifted today when I heard from his holiness Dalai Lama. Apparently, he got his hands on a copy. He said he couldn't put it down!

Author Interview :: Inspiration Behind Jukebox

My first author interview has been uploaded to YouTube.  Check it out!  More to follow...

Jukebox Lemonade Stand

So, as the leaves fall off the trees, I'm sitting by the fire trying to get organized around marketing this little novel, Jukebox.  Although I'll have some help from my publisher, Bella Books, I've been reading up on book marketing strategies and, to be honest, it all seems quite daunting.  I keep reminding myself--small bites, one day at a time.

I've at least come up with task #1: Author Interviews

Today and tomorrow, I'm going to start by sitting down for them.  In the interviews, I'll talk about where the idea for Jukebox came from, how I wrote it, who the characters are, what my plans are for the film, and weird quirks about me and my writing rituals (there are plenty of those--in fact, I'm doing the splits while I type right now).

If you've got any ideas--besides by brilliant Lemonade/Jukebox Stand--send them my way.  If only it weren't fall and I didn't live in the Pacific Northwest.  Maybe I'll do a Hot Chocolate/Jukebox stand?

Jukebox Arrived!

I've been waiting for this day for almost ten years.   My author copies of my debut novel, Jukebox, have arrived from the publisher.

When I heard the doorbell ring, I knew what it was. I looked at my partner and said, "Oh my god, my novel is ringing the doorbell."

Sure enough.  There was a postman standing with a heavy box from Bella Books.  I may have squealed a little bit, certainly cried some and possibly did a cartwheel through the foyer after I shut the door.

Needless to say, I AM VERY EXCITED!!!

I hope you all are, too.  To the public, it will be released on November 16, but you can pre-order your copy today!
