Back in August of this year, I was encouraged by author pals like iAi’s Scott Bury to enter my newly completed sci-fi adventure novel, GHOST STAR, in Amazon’s Kindle Scout contest.

Not expecting to be selected, I launched my campaign and hoped for the best. A little over thirty days later I was struck speechless by the subject line of an email that read, “Your book Ghost Star has been selected!” What?! Really? To say I was thrilled would be a massive understatement.

What that selection meant on a practical level was that I received a modest advance and a publishing agreement with the marketing might of Amazon behind it—all of this coming out of a mysterious mixture of reader nominations and Kindle Editing Team approval. What it meant on a validation level was immeasurable.

I recently received another email announcing that GHOST STAR will be published on January 9, 2018 at 12:00 AM EST. Cue more excitement in 3…2…1…

The link below is to my book's brand new Amazon page. Those who nominated GHOST STAR during its Kindle Scout campaign are eligible for a free Kindle copy. Those who missed out on those 30 days of jittery chaos can pre-order their very own copy too. The paperback edition will come out around the same time and will be available through CreateSpace.

That’s all for now. Thanks!
