That's Willa Evelyn Harwood in the middle.
Lately I've been spending a fair amount of time pondering the difference between the words "edition" and "addition." Today they come into play like never before as Thomas & Mercer publishing releases new editions of both THIS IS LIFE and YOUNG JUNIUS. In no small part this is due to your support! I thank you once again for all your patronage and assistance in making my writing career a reality. I'm super excited about working together and the new opportunities this partnership involves--basically, Thomas & Mercer is a publishing wing of Amazon and they'll be using powers of the mighty sales site to promot and merchandize the book.
On the other hand, there's an addition that I'm even more proud of: that's my little girl, Willa Evelyn Harwood, who was three weeks old yesterday! (Her birthday is 1/28.) She's gaining weight, healthy as any parent could ask for and seems *very* advanced for her age (not my words)! I'm pretty sure she'll be reading within the month. (Kidding.)
If I may be so bold as to ask you for another favor, please help me to spread the word about This Is LIfe and Young Junius. You've likely bought them before. Now a good review, a Fb "Like" or a word to your friends can do so much! I'll be announcing new giveaways in the days and weeks to come. I look forward to your participation. As always, I'm also happy to sign your copies. Just drop a line and ask me.
More audio, CrimeWAV stories and dispatches from Palms Nation to come. As always, I'm yer boy.
