First Novel Cover Reveal

As most of you know, I've been working steadily for the past few years to establish a writing career. As of now, I estimate that my hourly wage as a writer is about $-1.19 per hour. lol.

My first published novel, In Blog We Trust, a very loose interpretation of a short story I wrote, will be available on January 17th, both in E-reader and printed formats.

The novel will be available at Amazon.com, and Barnes and Noble.com, as well as the publisher's (Black Rose Writing) website.

I would like to thank the very talented Carrie Butler for her work on the final cover art.

I would also like to thank Tera Zajack for her last minute help.

Anyway, I just wanted to say how grateful I am to all of you for pushing me to write in the past...telling me I should expand my horizons past the confines of the blog world. I got the push when I needed it most, and without it I would have never gotten this far. I have another novel coming out in March, and yet another on the horizon. Hopefully I can boost that $-1.19 number haha!

I would like to thank Lisa Regan for her nice review, which appears on the back of the novel. She is a fabulous author and friend.

I've been blaming my bad query writing, and the fact there's no zombies in my query, for the fact my manuscript has not been requested ONCE. And someone liked your query enough to ask for the manuscript. Congratulations. Query hell is a hard thing to get through.
