I did it! I wrote a book! No, it's not the great American novel, but I hope it's entertaining.
I actually had an offer of representation by an agent who sells tons of mysteries to publishers, but in the end I decided to just self-publish, mostly because of the time the traditional route would take. I wrote the book just for fun and have no expectation at all of great sales. I just want to get on with it and continue working on the second book. I had more fun writing this than anything I've written in years.
The book is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other sources, both paperback and Kindle versions, and by order through book stores. If you decide to read a copy and you enjoy it, I would appreciate some positive review comments on Amazon!
I'm already working on the next book in this series.
