I am drinking champagne (Cava really) out of a jam jar as I write this.
This jam jar ————————————————>
After I finish this jar, the jar will be refilled, so I’m writing quickly before I gently drift into not making sense. And I need it to make sense. Because Roadhouse Blues is out!
Somehow, the stars aligned, and Amazon Kindle, Kobo and Nook all released the ebook version early, which means that, while the paperback still won’t be available for a day or two, the ebook version is officially out in the world! It’s also up on GoodReads, and I’ll put links to each below so you can check out the collection if you’re at all so inclined.
In honor of the release, Go Deeper Press is offering a discount through their store, and will also be running contests and special promotions for the next week or two, which you can find on Twitter, FB and the Go Deeper Press site.
I’ll also keep a running list of the interviews, posts, reviews and excerpts that go live over the next few weeks as part of the Roadhouse Blues blog tour, which starts tomorrow with an interview I did for Xan West, a brilliant writer and activist whose work I’ve admired ever since I met them at a reading in San Francisco several years ago.
In the meantime, I want to say thank you to all of the people who read an ARC, wrote a review or offered support and feedback throughout the writing and preparing of this book. It’s easy to think of writing as being a solitary activity, but it’s impossible to feel isolated when you’re surrounded by an amazing community of friends, constructive critics and fellow writers.
And now, my jar is empty so I’m off to get that fixed. Happy release day, Roadhouse Blues!
