Yes, Dad, I know it’s blurry. Who doesn’t look good in blur? I’m so excited about the Sept. 4 release of Pretty Much True…that I can’t wait – I have to give away a couple of copies, and exactly a month before the release seems like the perfect time.   First, a huge thank you to Craig...

One of the strangest times in a writer’s life is when the ARCs go out into the world to seek early praise and attention. The “ARC” is book world shorthand for “Advance Reading Copy,” which translates to: an unedited, unfinished version of a book. Which translates to: one of my worst...

One funny thing about writing a book is how hard it is to reduce 300+ pages of prose to a one- or two-paragraph description. So the good news is that when your book is bought by a publisher, someone else takes on that task. I remember when I got the "catalog copy" for my first novel, The...

I've just arrive home from ten days in Berlin and Prague to find a box of advanced reader copies of The Four Ms. Bradwells on my doorstep! Woo hoo!!! For those of you who aren't in the publishing or bookselling business, I had no idea what an advanced reader copy was before my first novel was...

This week has been quite an experience starting with the receipt of my Survival Games ARCs.  Wow, let me tell you cutting the tape off the box and pulling out that first copy was surreal.  It’s been a dream of mine since high school, and I had the pleasure of sharing it with my folks who were at...

It occurred to me earlier tonight that I never posted the final update on the saga of ARCs and eBay, so I thought I should tie up that loose end here. As you might recall (or will see if you follow the original link :) ), an ARC of my novel The Third Sign showed up on eBay a few weeks ago--strange...

It has felt like a lifetime. Really, it's only been three years. But they're finally here, Rock 'N' Roll Soldier ARCs! Though R'N'RS – Vietnam vet Dean Kohler's YA war memoir I co-wrote – is my sixth published book, it's my first experience with advance reading copies, aka bound galleys....

This is a bit of an unusual post in that I don't have an end for it yet. I'm leaving that up to you. Let me explain. My book is beginning to appear in a number of places for pre-order (details of which I'll have on this site fairly soon, by the way), and so I've gotten a number of Google Alerts...
