On Sale Today: Another Bite of The Apple

So for those of you who were kind enough to purchase my novel Three Days in New York City, the sequel, Another Bite of the Apple, was released today and you can read an excerpt and purchase it right here.

I like how they have it advertised -- this is the first time I've seen the promo for the book and it made me smile.

"The man she loves is engaged to a woman who could be a supermodel. The man she despises but can't seem to resist is beckoning once again. Her life isn't going nearly as she'd thought it would when she moved to New York City.

What's a girl to do?

Elizabeth is back, attitude, insecurities, and all, in this sequel to Three Days in New York City."

Yeah, that about sums it up. It's being released in digital format today but of course you know I expect sales to be brisk and like Three Days in New York City, it will be out in paperback and at a Borders near you sooner rather than later.

Okay, I'm hoping sales will be decent.

Oh alright, I'm hoping to make one sale. Will it be you? Pretty please?

Nah, all kidding aside, I had a blast writing this book and if you liked Three Days, you will probably really enjoy the sequel because it brings, um...here comes that catchword I despise...closure...to the series. Don't hate me for using "closure", I honestly couldn't think of a better word. But oh god how I hate when people say it ad nauseam.

I also learned that a 7,000 word short story I had written a few months ago -- a light-hearted sexual comedy categorized by Phaze as a Samba -- was a contest winner and will be available for sale in the middle of July. Trust me on this. It's the best $2.00 you'll ever spend. I give good erotica, you all know that. Ha! And yeah, click on the Phaze link I provided in regard to that -- Another Bite of the Apple and Three Days in New York City look awfully cool on their front page along with the announcement of all six Samba contest winners.

Speaking of my pals at Phaze, hey hey hey, we're invading New York City on August 11 for a reading at the Happy Ending Lounge. I'll be talking that up more in weeks to come but have a look at the cool flyer (which I will soon be illegally stapling to trees and poles all over the tri-state area har har but fear not, I am conscientious and will then take them down once the event is over)

As for now, I continue to toil away at Baby Boomer, my first mainstream novel in a couple of years, and for once I was thrilled by the copious amounts of rain we got yesterday and are expecting all week because yes! that means no construction workers next door. It was so quiet in here I was in heaven. I wrote upstairs in my journal in longhand so I wouldn't be distracted by things happening on the internet though I'm sad to say I've forever abandoned the idea of a fountain pen, damn it...but I really do like a certain black rolling marker by Uniball so that's what I'm using and loving it.

Anyway, that's all for now. I'll be back tomorrow with more news from the writing and music world...unless, of course, something else exciting happens in the meantime.
