What's Happening With Gary...

Hello, fellow readers...

My apologies for not posting anything for a little while; I've been rather busy with a few things.  First, I'm gradually increasing the availability of Scarlet Siege for various e-Readers. After much waiting, my debut novel will be released on Kobobooks.com this coming Saturday, September 29th. However, realizing I needed to branch out further than that, I have signed up with Smashwords to widen the book's reach. As of current writing, Scarlet Siege is not only available on the Smashwords site, but has shown up on Diesel e-Books, and for Apple's iBooks service. I was hoping it would appear on Barnes & Noble's Nook service by now; however, there has been a delay in that respect; however, it should be made available soon. It should be noted, there is a listing for the paperback version on the B&N site, but it is through a secondary retailer who is charging twice as much as if you would be able to purchase it directly via Amazon. I don't know about you all, but to me $7.99, plus shipping is a lot more economical than playing $16.87, plus the cost of having it mailed. However, this is not the only news that I have with this posting.

As you may know, I have been working on the revisions for my second novel, Barbadian Backlash, over the past few weeks. Well, I am pleased to announce that the edits have now been completed, and the cover has been designed. I would like to take this time to thank my dear friends, Marissa Moses for supplying me with the cover photo, and Jen Geffros for helping me edit Marissa's snapshot to get the hue just right. Lately, I've been immediately posting updates on Facebook, and I know that has given this blog great injustice. However, I'm making amends right now. For it's public Internet debut, I would like to reveal the cover for my second adventure with Gary, Jessica, and Karen for you all, right here on Gary Celdom.com ...


Now, the question is: when will you, the loyal supporter and reader, be able to obtain your copy of my latest tome? Well, I'm trying to guesstimate the timing, but I am shooting for a release date of Tuesday, October 30th. And instead of it popping up on various websites on a staggered date, I will do my best that this will be the date it will be made available on Amazon's Kindle service, Kobobooks.com, and Smashwords. I'm hoping the paperback version will be released on this date as well.

Thank you all for your continued support, and stay tuned. This November, I commence work on the third episode of the Gary Celdom Case Journals series. I shouldn't give any spoilers, but it involves a murder during the festivities for the 100th edition of the Canadian professional football championship. Until next time, happy reading.
