It’s the bye week, and we’ve pretty much pounded every available issue into the turf this week. That means it’s time for me to make a small announcement. Those of you who have been reading for awhile know that I’ve been working on a book for the last 10 months or so. Well, it’s done. Done, done. It’s been written, rewritten, re-rewritten, and I’ve finally got it where I want it. And honestly, I’m proud of it.
I liked it. My wife liked it. My dad said, “Well, I haven’t finished it yet, but I think you are a good writer. You’ve got all that bulls**t in there that a book has to have if it’s not going to be boring.”
He has a way with words. Apparently, I come by it honestly.
That means I’ve begun the soul killing process of seeking representation and publication. As anyone who has ever shopped a book knows, writing is the easy part, selling it is the hard part. I’ll spend the next several months trying to find an agent to represent the book, but if all avenues come up dry, I’ll self-publish. So don’t worry, if you are truly desperate to read it, you’ll get your chance. I promise.
For now, if anyone is or knows of an agent or publisher interested in a novel about Indiana high school basketball complete at 79,672 words entitled Invincible, Indiana, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be happy to send you a query letter.
For the rest of you, the book is coming…some day.
You may all now bate your breath.
