To all of the wonderful people who’ve been following along with these stories over the course of 2010 —
You are sincerely in my debt. I hope you like what you’ve read, as I’ve certainly enjoyed crafting this multi-layered tale of retail and customer service intrigue. What began as a lark (or a bit of exercise for my writing skills) one morning while bored at work at Sunglass Hut has now grown into more than I could have imagined. The feedback I’ve received from friends and family has been fantastic, and I’ve really learned a great deal about the process of writing, editing, and creating works of fiction.
The primary reason for this addendum to the series is that I have some great news to share with the world. The fine folks at Substance Vs Style found this story cycle of mine back in November and have decided to publish my book. Yes, yours truly will become an actual published author sometime in early 2011.
The timeline looks something like this: when the final product is complete (editing, layout, etc. are finished), the publisher will post the book up as a free electronic download (for people’s fancy e-reader devices), and once the physical product returns from the printer, it will be available to purchase for $10.00 from the publisher’s website. As these events approach, I will certainly be spreading the news so that anyone and everyone possible can purchase a copy, and I hope to obtain some copies for myself so that I can distribute/sell them directly to people in the real world.
Again, thanks so much for reading over the past 9 or so months, and thanks to Samantha and Car of Substance Vs Style for providing me this fantastic opportunity. I look forward to your continued support in the months and years to come.
