Good News/Bad News

First the bad news. My latest book, Finding Travis, did not get picked up by Amazon via its Kindle Scout program. Major bummer. And of course Amazon does not divulge how it makes its decisions lest someone learn how to game the system, so I'll never know why. 

The good news is, that's not going to stand in the way of a good book.  I've already published the book myself, both as a paperback and an ebook. And, just to kick off the new release with a bang, I've priced the ebook at only 99 cents, through May 22, 20116. I have to say: I love this book. It's my new favorite. Yeah, I know, I'm a tad prejudiced, but I just really, really like it. I think you might, too.

Here's the blurb:

Travis Merrill’s life isn’t going according to plan. He’s quit several career paths, his wife has left him, and his only solace is volunteering to portray a cavalry surgeon at historic Fort Verde in Arizona, a place where time seems to stand still. When a weird trick of time actually sends him back to the year 1877, he’s boxed into impersonating the post surgeon for real. Unfortunately, he finds his medical knowledge is no match for the primitive practices of the day, and he’s forced to make life or death decisions, not always successfully. He wonders if he will ever be able to return to his own time, or if he might find a life—and a love—140 years in the past.

So are you ready for a really fun time travel story? Humor, drama, tragedy, romance--it's all there. I would love to show Amazon that they missed the boat when they passed on this one. Wouldn't that be something, to have the book be a best seller and they let it go by? They might just rethink that Kindle Scout program. 

For all of you who voted for Travis, I send my heartfelt thanks. You guys rock. I hope you'll take advantage of this 99 cent sale and meet the real Travis. I know you'll like him.
