Dear Bloggers,

Here it is! Flagler's Few and the Reaper of Saint George Street. This will be a limited Halloween Edition in Digest format (5.5x8.5). The Trade Format will go on sale Nov. 1st. and this Digest format will be retired. Make sure you get your copy as soon as you can!

I'm already busy at work starting the next book Flagler's Few and Victor's Vengance! I'm hoping to have it out by the Spring or Summer of 2010. Now that I have a good grasp on how this all works, I should be able to get them to you faster without suffering in quality.

Thank you again everyone, and please help make this a memorable Halloween and order your copy TODAY!

So this past weekend I attended Saint AuGHOSTine 2009. It was an interesting event...definitely not what I expected, but I met some interesting people like Murray Silver and Stacy the Ghost Cop. :-P We checked out the Saint Francis Inn, the Lighthouse and had a few seminars and guest speakings.

However, needless to say, it was more important that I went about and promoted my book at some of the local Saint George Street book shops. I had my eyes set specifically on three: Ghost Augustine, the Tavern shop, and Ghostly Experience, all of which are evenly seperated across the length of the walk.

Well, Ghostly Experience was hooked from the get go, and Ghost Augustine and the Tavern shop seemed eager to carry it as well for the upcoming soft opening. I managed to get a few others interested and I'm hoping that Barnes and Noble will carry a couple copies.

I of course will be pitching my book to some mainstream publishers, but I thought in the spirit of Halloween I'd give the tourists a taste of "Flagler's Few". I have a neat guerrilla advertising idea for the book as well...but need to discuss that with Saint Augustine's city affairs department.

The book will hopefully be available via Amazon and Barnes and as well. Wish me luck!
