The experience of getting a book published resembles childbirth in many ways--you conceive an idea, labor over it and carry it along to fruition, and then you anticipate the day you will catch your first glimpse of it and hold it in your hands. It sounds like a ridiculous exaggeration, but to an author, it's pretty close, and today I was sent the final cover. I think it's gorgeous!
It will still be a few weeks before we'll be able to handle a copy, or see it on a book store shelf, but I've posted the first three chapters on my website. Please click either image. They'll take you to my web site. Once you're there, read the first three chapters and come back and leave a comment. If you do, I'll enter you in a drawing to win a copy of Dawn's Early Light, hot off the presses.
Also, check the "Promotions" link on my web site as well for two other ways to win prizes.!
We haven't yet cut the cord on this one . . . there's another round of editing to do, but the stellar story is there--tales of three of the darkest days in America's history--the week Washington burned!
I hope you'll take a moment to visit, and then I hope you'll let me know what you think.
