Guess what?

So remember, like, YEARS ago, when I wrote my novel MOTOR DOLLS? And then the sole focus was to find an agent cause THAT'S WHAT WRITERS DO even though only about ten percent get signed? And then--glory be to heaven--AN AGENT ACTUALLY SIGNED ME??

Yeah. I remember that too. I also remember how she had me rework the novel to the point it no longer resembled what I originally wrote. Argh. Then she shopped it to publishers and had interest from a couple of MAJOR houses, only to have them want further changes?"...maybe limit the cars since girls might not get it..." Really?

Yep. Remember that too. I also remember it all falling part and never wanting to write again.

I also remember several "Oh-joyous-day-I-want-to-write-again..." posts...

So why is this one different?


And since I work in news, I ALWAYS honor my deadlines. In fact, I already spoke with a couple of artists about doing the cover art (oh... will it ever be fun!!!) and have started laying out the novel for both it's e-book and the print book. I'm about a quarter of the way through the final cleanup edit...

Then I'm going to take the beauty to print under the MOTOR PALACE PRESS imprint.

My deadline you ask? MID-MARCH. I want the final product in my hand by April first. I want the promo materials like post cards and stickers and stuff by Viva Las Vegas. The I'm gonna plaster the joint! HA!

So your job? HOLD ME TO IT.


That's all.

Later gators!
