Bob Moore: Desperate Times Published on Amazon

The followup to Bob Moore: No HeroIf you haven’t heard, Bob Moore: Desperate Times has finally been published on Amazon (in time for my October deadline). But this is only the beginning. In the coming days/weeks, check back here for all sorts of extras including behind the scenes podcasts where a couple of my beta readers quiz me about Bob, his world, the themes, and even future stories. I’ll post a few deleted scenes – stuff I cut from the book because it slowed the pacing down. Yes, I know the book is over 100k words but it was, at one point, longer. I’ll also be posting news about and reviews of the book as I become aware of them. It’s been a long haul and I’m SOOOOOOOO glad to be done editing. Now, I can go back to the fun stuff – writing. That’s right, Bob 3 (tentatively titled Bob Moore: Hostile Territory) is already half plotted. My goal is to finish up the outline this week and start writing next week. I’ll tell you what – I learned a lot from Desperate Times, not the least of which is that I’ll never, EVER post deadlines again. Too many things can happen that are outside my control.

Lastly, I promised to do a few posts about my experience posting Desperate Times to the various ebook services. I shall. We did Amazon first because 1) it has the largest audience, 2) we’ve done it before and pretty much knew how it would go, and 3) because it wasn’t Smashwords so I knew it would be up and available to download not in weeks, but in hours. Next up will be Nook and iBooks followed by Smashwords. As a small preview, the process for posting to Amazon is SO easy and straight-forward. If you have Word, pretty much what you see is what you get. I’ll expand on that later on this week. For now, I’m going to take a nap.
