Well, since I got my start here at AQC I thought it was only fitting that I make my announcement here

 

My first novel, Perfect Pawn, has been published through Amazon and is currently available as an e-book.

 

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G5U6JH2

 

If you have a Kindle, please take a look and read the first two and a half chapters. If you like it, I would appreciate your support.

 

For those of you, like me, who prefer a printed book I am in the final stages of the formatting / cover art and it will be available as a trade paperback in the next week or so.

 

Andrew

Thanks Lee, I really appreciate that. It's actually a very rewarding experience to see something that you have worked so hard on become a reality. I'm sure you understand that sentiment and good luck on your upcoming 2nd novel as well !!

Lyael, thank you so much for the kind words about the book and I am glad that you liked it.

 

Right now it is in the Kindle lending program for ninety days, but after the first of the year we will be releasing it on the Kindle platform as well. I am hoping to also have the print version out this month. 

 

For anyone else who is interested, you can read the first 2 1/2 chapters here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G5U6JH2

 

Enjoy !!

Well, it's really official now. I just received the physical proofs of the print version for Perfect Pawn today!! It is really an amazing feeling to hold something tangible in your hands. I'm an old school kind of reader. No offense to eBook aficionados, but for me nothing says "you've made it" than an actual book!!

 

So here it is!!

SK, thank you. I appreciate the kind words about the cover. I was trying for something that would tie in all the elements that I believe are key to the book.
