Nor does she appear in the novel.  Just thought you’d like this picture.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

THE FIRST MONTH OF PUBLICATION: A RECKONING

In the interest of “paying it forward” to all the honest and open independent authors who have gone on before me, I feel this post is an obligation, on my part. Had they not blazed the trail, returned and reported that everything is fine on the other side, I could never have made the decision to turn down a New York book deal to become an indie author. I’ve therefore decided recount the so-called “indie-coaster” ride that was my first month as a self-published author.

AT ANY PRICE released officially on December 9, 2013. My first month as a published author has been full of ups and downs—mostly ups! The book has been very well received. By the one-month anniversary of publication, the book had 100 reviews on Amazon, 66 of which were 5 star reviews.

Here’s the scoop on what the novel is about –

Nick Townsend is a high school principal battling alcohol addiction. After falling off the wagon, he awakens the next morning remembering a dream that included him flying over an elementary school shooting, in progress.  The next day, the school shooting he saw in his dream is headline news.  When it happens again, he is determined to prevent the tragedy and solicits his best friend to help him save more children from certain death.

But what is the cost of saving lives?  Will he continue to risk his life when the woman he loves is carrying his child?  Can he win the battle against the demon tequila that threatens to wreck his world?  And, when he awakens one morning remembering another school shooting dream, can he stop the horrible event from happening at his school?

You’ll see writers talking about how much they value their “early” readers (aka beta readers)  for their feedback on story ideas, pacing, plot points, characterization, etc.   That holds doubly true for me as I struggle to put together a story that  keeps the reader’s attention.   My mother is one of my biggest supporters in all things writing, so she is always willing to read a rough draft and provide comments.
