My First Book is Ready for Pre-Order!

Hey everyone!

Your patience has finally paid off. As of today, my debut novel The Cardorian Complex is finally available for pre-order online. I know, I can hardly believe it either. My closest friends and family members have heard me talk endlessly about how I'm "almost done" or how I'm "so close" even when I've backtracked on my promises too many times to count. Nevertheless, the end is in sight. The Cardorian Complex will be released on May 24th, 2019 and can be pre-ordered right now. The links can be found at the bottom of this post.

My book is available in paperback, hardcover, and e-book on both Barnes & Noble and Amazon. Indie Bound is also carrying my book but they are not selling electronic copies at the moment. I also want to let you all know in advance that the cover icon for the hardback editions are not showing up on any webpages. I've already been in contact with some people who are working to fix this problem and the cover photo should be added to the page sometime this week. I believe this problem is only aesthetic so all of you should be able to pre-order hardcover versions even if the webpage itself looks a little awkward. If there are any problems with the copies you purchase, please let me know and I'll take care of it.

I am planning on giving away free copies to family members and close friends, many of whom I've already spoken to. I don't expect the people who've supported me and kept me afloat during these last several years to pay since they've already given me plenty. That being said, ordering books is still fairly expensive even as the author, so please understand I can't give free copies to everybody I know.

In the weeks preceding my release date, I'm going to be busy organizing my marketing plan and looking for networking opportunities. I've already created my Storiad account and I'm working on setting up a phone call with a marketing strategist from Kirkus to get a game plan going. Still, even with all the work ahead, I'm more relaxed now than I've been in a long time. Thank you once again to everybody who's supported me. I cannot be more grateful for your patience and your optimism and I'm glad I can finally give something back.

Bye for now,
