Another Writer Writing About Writing
Ask any good book marketing person and they’ll tell you that I probably should have started this blog a long, long time ago. That’s because my novel, Immaculate Deception, has been out for more than a year now, and I’m just getting around to this part of the process.
Mom always said I was a procrastinator. I guess she was right.
So first, a little about me. I was writing ID (as we like to call it around here) for a long time beginning in 1989 and ending in 2009. Yes, that’s 20 years, folks. Don’t judge.
Suffice it to say that I was trying to take a number of what I thought were really cool stories and ideas and weave them into a single novel that combined my early upbringing in the South, my later upbringing in the North, religion, aliens, real estate development, global climate change, youth-obsessed baby-boomers, gay Marines, severely underdressed waitresses, sex, drugs, and – if not rock ‘n roll – at least a healthy dose of 1960s R&B.
What I’ll aim to do here is fill you in on what’s going on with the book, appearances and activities related to that book and the ups and downs of writing and promoting the book and others to come.
So, come along for the ride and see if you can hang on for the duration.
