Unsolicited Praise

I received an email from my mother, then from my father informing me that a professor at the college where my father worked for thirty-two years was “very complimentary” of my first novel, METAL MAN WALKING.

My father also informed me that this compliment was “unsolicited” and that this form of praise “is the very best kind.”

Yes.

I’m Ready for You to Buy My Book

That’s what I say to an acquaintance today – “Hey _________!” I sit down beside her, touch her shoulder lightly, smile, say, “I’m ready for you to buy one of my books.”

She smiles back, says, “Do you have one with you?”

“Yes I do,” I say. “Do you have $10?”

She smiles again, pulls out two crumpled five dollar bills. She asks, “Which one should I get?”

I suggest METAL MAN WALKING. She nods.

I get the book; she gives me the ten dollars. I sign the copy and hand it over. Another woman picks it up, peruses the cover. As usual, I feel a tad guilty but I’m happy to have another reader.

Honestly, it sat on my shelf for quite a while until one dull, rainy Sunday afternoon. I had nothing better to do, so I figured I’d read a couple chapters. After those couple chapters I was still turning pages . . . straight through to the end.

I was thoroughly amazed at Carley’s development of her main character and his life, where he came from, his relationships, his potential and his reasons for being homeless.

ImageThe Spring issue of local magazine, AZALEA came out yesterday. I’d taken myself out to dinner, spied it at the restaurant ( it’s complimentary ), grabbed two copies, and headed home. Inside, I found a single page devoted to self-published books by local authors.

ImageBelow this nice description of how self-publishing has changed the world of writing, reading and yes – publishing, I found the short description of METAL MAN WALKING.

ImageSo, pick up a copy today. Just as AZALEA indicates, METAL MAN WALKING may be ordered from your local bookstore, purchased online at Amazon.com either in paperback or Kindle format.

Happy reading!
