A (Mostly) Unnecessary Post

This is the part where things begin to get exciting, and I must apologize for the lag between posts. The manuscript is complete, and now I step away from the novel completely for a couple of weeks, and then return to it to see if I’m still happy with it. And I think I will be; I got to say all the things I wanted to say, and in such a way that is appropriate for the characters and the setting. The research has paid off and by mid-July, Revival should be out and available for purchase.

Until then, it’s a crash course in self-marketing, an endeavor in which I have absolutely no experience. Hence, the Facebook link thingy to the left of this post. By the way, does anyone know how to add a Facebook ‘Share’ button to a WordPress site? I’m reading everything I can find about how to sell a book, and would gladly accept any info/advice that anyone would care to offer. Seriously. I need help here, so tell your friends, your family, the person next to you in line at the grocery store. I’m not proud.

Here’s the premise, seeing as how I haven’t yet mentioned it here. Revival is the story of a traveling tent show revival preacher in the American South, in the 1940s, his use of scripture as justification to do very bad things, and the former carnival worker who may be his undoing. While religion plays a part in the story, this is not, however,  a religious book; you will not find it next to the Left Behind series. It resides firmly in the horror/dark thriller genre, and it is my hope that it provides a few dark thrills.

So that’s it for now. Stay tuned, there’s more to come!
