If you arrived here late and don't know how I got into writing, you may wish to click here to read about me. I've been fortunate enough to have ten novels and two (soon to be three) novellas published, in addition to the book that started all this, The Tender Scar. But in case you haven't noticed, traditional publishers of Christian fiction (the newer word is Inspirational, but I'm old-fashioned) are slowly dropping these lines. At last count, about ten have done this in the past couple of years. And I got caught up in this change. The publisher with whom I signed my most recent contract encountered financing problems, and the book that was supposed to be released last November, then was rescheduled to this February, has been permanently shelved.
Around me, I saw authors producing anywhere from one to three or four books per year. Would my readers even remember me if a year passed with no book of mine to remind them? So I wrote and arranged self-publication of a long novella (a bit over 40 thousand words), which will be released next week. I've been assured by my readers that they're ready to read what I put out there, so in gratitude I've arranged a pre-publication price of 99 cents for the Kindle version of Doctor's Dilemma. Sorry, but there's no special deal on the print version. The regular price goes into effect on Monday, when the book releases.
To order the Kindle version (and you can read any Kindle book on your PC, Mac, or smart phone--do a Google search for the free app that makes that possible), click here. It's my way of saying, "Thanks for waiting.
