Self promotion is easy sitting here in front of a non-judgemental monitor — no eye rolling, no heavy sighs, no seat shifting.  Out in the Wide World, not so much.  Self-deprecation would be my tendency.  But… I am here and unjudged.  (so far).

I’m currently under contract with Freisen Press http://friesenpress.com/to publish my latest novel.  Probably titled “Journey” though I’ve considered “Saving the Stein” and “Stagyn” — the Nlaka’pamux word meaning “hidden place” —  for the title.  Cover design and titles are so important to my choosing a book to browse so I must presume the same for others.

What a process it is, getting a book published.  Writing it felt authentic and inspired but this is awkward and anxiety driven.  I struggle to understand and use social media.  Facebook is convoluted.  My fingers sweat on the keyboard.  Twitter — oh, I am a twit on Twitter.  I stare at that little text box as if every possible word reeks of pomposity or pretension.  Stay tuned.  I might yet conquer my angst and Tweet.
