Release Day

I guess I should have scheduled this release for a Friday, since that's when I post all my "writing" stuff. Anyway, Critical Decision is supposed to be available today--definitely in Kindle, and possibly also ready in print form (I've just been advised it's also up--the two versions will be linked in a couple of days). I'm making arrangements for it to be available as an audio book, but that will come a couple of months down the road.

I don't sound very happy? Counting both the works published by a conventional publisher and my indie-publication, this is number twenty, if I calculate correctly. For my first novel, I went all-out--had a cake, gathered people at a bookstore for a reading, but in general I was disappointed. I later heard from one of the bookstore employees that a former first lady of the US had done a reading there, and gathered an even smaller crowd. That helped me set my expectations a bit lower, and for the last several books I've made very little fuss about it. So, here's Critical Decision. I hope you enjoy it. Meanwhile, I plan to draw a few deep breaths, then plunge into writing another one.

Hope you enjoy it. If you do, tell others. If not, tell me (in a very nice, soft voice, so no one else hears).

Haha, funny. Okay, will do!

Forgot to add the smiley face (but it was implied).
