Andrew Banks is hired by sixteen-year-old Mercedes Vega to work his first case. He soon learns that Carlos Vega, her father, is mixed up with the wrong people. He finds himself in Bellaire, one of the wealthiest parts of Houston, only to discover that not all of its residents are as innocent as they look. He must stay a step ahead of the Bellaire millionaire he’s pursuing before it’s too late for the entire Vega family, and for him.

Wouldn’t you like to get a free copy of my book without having to do more than sit at your computer and enter to win? Well…this is your lucky day!

1. Follow my blog via WordPress or email. It’s easy! Just hit that button on the right side of your screen or enter your email! (NOTE: If you already follow my blog, I will automatically enter you into the drawing for being a follower ONLY IF YOU SELECT AT LEAST ONE OTHER METHOD OF ENTRY.

How simple is that?! Feel free to pick and choose which ways to enter. I don’t care if I get one person who picks one way to enter; I will still give away a copy of my book. The entry period will last from the time of this post until Sunday, November 3, 2013 at 11:59 PM central time. I will post this exact post again before the entry period ends and will announce the winners early next week, probably on Monday. So be sure to check back!

Here’s the cover art and short synopsis.

If you don’t think you’ll win the giveaway then feel free to go over to Amazon and buy the book today!

Amazon Product Page Officially Online!

Yep! You read that right! My Amazon product page is officially online! I was told that it would be up and running within 5-7 business days of my approving the book for sale. Well, it ended up being less than 24 hours! This is fantastic!

Before I give you all the link I just wanted to mention something that literally happened to me just minutes before typing this post. Obviously I have a lot of people who I’ve told about the book and who I’m pretty certain will buy it. But I sent a friend of mine, who I’ve known since 2006, the link to the Amazon product page and he sent me back the confirmation of his order of MY book. That’s a pretty good feeling. Because it didn’t matter to him what the book was about, though I’ve told him, all that mattered was that I wrote it and that was enough.

I hope I have more stories like this one to share with you guys. Should you decide to purchase my book, I encourage you to post a review on Amazon because I look forward to reading what you have to say! And know that I am so appreciative to have you guys to share this entire experience with. You all are almost like family. Almost.

Here’s the link to Amazon!

Also, follow me on Twitter so you can read my random thoughts, mostly on writing, but also on all things! I’m a little lonely over there because I just started using my account. Help me out!

I’ve added the My Book page for you to easily access a short synopsis of my book along with the links to Amazon and CreateSpace. Take a look.

My Book, Divided Within, Available Now!

MY BOOK, DIVIDED WITHIN, IS OFFICIALLY FOR SALE!

How amazing is that? I knew that my copy would be arriving today, but still that first time I laid eyes on it….I can’t even describe it. It is absolutely perfect. It really did bring tears to my eyes. It’s so pretty! I said when I graduated back on May 18 that it was the best day of my life. I think October 29 took the top spot today. It’s all just so grand.

I have a surprise for all of you!

You guys have followed every step of my progress during this great journey and I want to reward you, so to speak, for that. My Amazon product page will be up and running within the next few days, but in the meantime I wanted to at least offer you guys some incentive to go out and get it before it’s available on Amazon. I self-published with CreateSpace (I’ll have an entire post dedicated to my experience with them in the coming days) and the book is available now from their eStore. Normally the customer pays the full list price and then another $3.59 standard shipping. So in this case that would be $9.49 plus $3.59 = $13.08 total purchase price. That’s no fun.

So…I’d like to make an exclusive offer available only to my blog readers and followers: I’ll cover the cost of shipping! You’ll pay the 9.49 and not a penny more! Doesn’t that sound a bit better?

All you have to do is click here to navigate to the CreateSpace eStore and enter discount code PX24LVW7 prior to completing checkout. It will show the discount coming off the list price of the book. So your cart will have the list price of the book at $5.90 along with the price of shipping at $3.59. This is because I can offer the discount off the book and not the shipping, but it’s exactly the same!

Here’s the back cover text for those of you who may have missed it the first time I posted it a little while back.

I’d love for some of you guys to take advantage of me doing this! It’s for you all!

Thanks for sticking it out with me! Now I just have to sell some books!
