If you've been following me on Instagram, you've noted that April has not exactly come in quietly. Spring, it seems, has forsaken the city in which I live. It's nearly May, and the high today was 41. I am less than pleased, to say the least.
What does please me, though, is that Remains, the book that I told you last update I had sold to Lethe Press, has a cover! Here it is:
While you're there, have a look around, maybe snag another title or two. Remember that your purchases help support small press.
The last book in the Jacob trilogy has a rough draft cover at this point. We're hoping to finalize soon so that I can make a big cover reveal. Remember to follow me on Twitter and Instagram for updates like that.
Still no agent to report for the current book. Lots of encouragement--lots of them say that they like the premise, but just couldn't figure out how to sell it. To be honest, maybe I need to go back to what I originally thought of the book and stop barking up what might be the wrong tree. Maybe this isn't a book for mainstream publishing houses. Maybe it needs to be on a small press to find the right audience. Food for thought.
Another semester swiftly winds to a close. Pretty ready for that, tbh. There's a family vacation to look forward to, true, but I also just need some time away from the continuous barrage of bad news. If there is a profession more hated than English instructor in this country, I'm sure I don't know it. It seems we can't seem to even catch a break with legislators and administration.
As always, thanks for your support. If you've read either Stealing Ganymede or Silencing Orpheus, would you be a lamb and stop by either Goodreads or Amazon and leave a review? I can't even begin to explain to you how much they help.
Here's hoping May calms down and starts to look more like Spring for all of us.
