Book News

I just got an email from the site lulu.com, through which my novel was published, regarding a discount this weekend. If you order now through Labor Day, you can use the coupon code "WHITE" to save 20% on your purchase. The link in the sidebar takes you directly to After the Newbery.

Thorzul,
I can't promise when, but I will be treating myself to copy someday soon. If it is anything close to the way you wrote that last trade of 82 Topps, I know I will be laughing my ass off! The Lester Bangs/Almost Famous reference was GREAT! Still giggling about that...I like the Lulu deal, too. I have signed two deals with publishers before and both books were scrapped (not actually published) by the time I had finished them. Dealing with calls every week of when will this be done only to finish it and have it deemed not worthy is crushing. I do look forward to reading it someday soon. Is there any baseball reference to it? Does CC make a cameo? Cheers!

CT, you will be laughing! I've not made it far into it yet, but the references are great (assuming you, as the reader, 'get' them, which I'm sure wont be an issue!).

The 'stream-of-consciousness' style fits me well because that's how think and write all the time! (hence the multiple parenthetical side notes I often go into (well, kinda like the one now).). :-)
