Out to Launch a New Mystery Novel

Well, it’s official. One of my good friends, who wishes to remain anonymous, just forwarded me a photograph of him lounging in his summertime swimming pool while reading my (presumably) waterproof novel.

This may not seem like front page news, but consider these realities:

  1. I myself have yet to hold the book in my anxious little hands (actually, this statement is technically incorrect; my hands are enormous).
  2. My bulk order of author’s copies are slowly (slowly) making their way through the mail system and may or may not arrive in time for my thrice-postponed, official, local, COVID-19 diluted open-house book launch scheduled for 7-9 p.m. on Friday, July 24, at the Grand Mesa Arts & Events Center, 195 West Main Street, Cedaredge, Colorado. *Everyone is invited. And the books, of course, are also invited. What are they waiting for? An engraved invitation?
  3. Meanwhile some guy in California (who also doesn’t have the book) is nevertheless selling it as ‘used’ for nearly double the cover price. Is California living on a different temporal plane? (Don’t answer that.)
  4. I’ve published with Kindle Direct Publishing, a print-on-demand service. But I’m still waiting for my copy. Apparently, I ain’t demanding enough.

You and I can order the book here:
