Fur-Face comes out on June 1st

This morning I had a pleasant (and most informative), hour-long chat on the phone with Karen Syed, owner of Echelon Press, who confirmed that, despite the valiant efforts from the ISPCR (International Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Readers), my debut novel, Fur-Face, will be published as an ebook on June 1st - just over two weeks from today.


 


It will be available in various formats, including Kindle, at the outrageous price of $2.99. 

Karen gave me all manner of great advice about promoting the book in schools etc, so you can imagine what I'll be working on over the next few weeks.

I don't know if this is typical for first-time authors, but I'm currently feeling all kinds of happy right now.

How's your Monday going?

Thanks, Jim.

A few weeks ago, I was expecting a fall 2011 release. Things have gotten pretty exciting since then :)

I don't know about leaping tall buildings, but I am going to wear my underpants on the outside for the rest of the day ;)

The day itself is fine,
I'm just in a terrible mood.

But that won't prevent my giving out with a hearty
WOOHOO!!!
