It’s Book Time!

October 12, 2012

My book has been published on Amazon.com, just in time for the Halloween season! It’s called “True Shadows” and it’s about a group of supernatural friends save a city from a plague of demons. It’s very good, if I may say so myself, without breaking too much of my own modesty.

This book has a lot of gratuitous violence and language, so it’s not anything for children, but plays to the child within us adults. My writing idol and inspiration is Quentin Tarantino, so this work of fiction can be very raw at times, yet very real. I wrote it not for the posh, but for the gritty everyday people of the world. If this book was printed, I imagine that freshmen collage students, blue collar workers, artists, and single working moms and dads would be reading it on the buses and subways, on their daily commute.

It’s available for the Kindle, but don’t worry. If you don’t own one, there is a free app you can download to your PC, phone, or tablet to read all Kindle books. Check it out here: Free Kindle Apps.
And if you have Prime Membership with Amazon, you can borrow the book for no cost. I get paid either way, so please do barrow if you want. I encourage it!

I am nervous about the launch of my first novel, yet so excited too. I’m just one step closer to living the dream! I do know that I may get a lot of heat from critics, because just like this blog I do have a little social and religious satire mixed into the story. The main plot is not my true beliefs, as I don’t believe in real demons, it’s a work of fiction. But it plays the “devil’s advocate” to what my true idea of what is “evil” or “good”, within society’s belief systems. However, I know that any critics who do comment will be connected to one important fact… They’ve read the book! And hey, love it or hate it, if a person reads what I wrote and gave it a chance, that’s all I’m shooting for in the first place. :-)

I hope you will enjoy the book, my dear readers! And thanks for giving me the added boost in my ego, for continuing to visit this blog. In fact, your visits have inspired me to create a new blog for you. Check out: The Lotus.
Many hugs and stay safe!
