Getting Excited about Damnation Island!

November 11th, 2017 Posted in Uncategorized

My book about Blackwell’s Island is coming out in six months!! I’ve been updating my blog accordingly (see the cover and link over on the right). It’s such an exciting and terrifying time. What will people think?? Am I going to get crushed, or will my book become a runaway bestseller?? Since I am both a pessimist and an optimist, I will probably be going back and forth, torturing myself, every day up until my pub date.

Bodhi and Bali, who are still small enough to fit on my lap together, are six months old, although in two weeks they will go up to seven. That’s Bali in the foreground, looking very annoyed. He’s actually ever so slightly more easy-going than Bodhi, who is a Tasmanian Devil. But neither of them will let me sleep in the morning, so even on my days off I’m getting up at 5am.

Thanks a heap, boys. No, really, I love you. But seriously. One more hour, for crying out loud.

    I’m excited for you, too. I love the title of the book and the subject is sure to get lots of media attention locally, which will lead to huuuuge word of mouth I’m sure — you think of the best general interest subjects for all your books. The cover still kills.

    Look at those gorgeous boys!
    Oh, and the book is gorgeous, too, of course. You know I’m beyond excited to read it!

    Your books are always so well-researched, and I’m sure this one will be no exception. Waiting eagerly to read it, and also love the cover.

    My dogs get me up at 6:00, rain or shine. The older I get, the more I wonder why I can’t sleep in — but still, the doggies give me lots of unconditional love, as I’m sure your cats do too. I no longer have indoor cats, and I really MISS their form of affection (sitting on my lap, twisting around my legs, etc) I do feed strays, and occasionally a neighborhood pet cat will wander by and let me love on them a little.

    Good luck and best wishes for your book!

    I just did an Amazon pre-order! Another reason to look forward to May. 🙂

    Thank you so much!! Thank you everyone!

    I thought it was coming out in July, so learning that the pub date is actually May is very exciting.
