On Top of the World

Just found out that Headwind is now available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Still waiting for it to show up on Ingram, which is the distributor to Independent Bookstores. There's been a whole laundry list of stuff to do this morning and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.

Sent off an email to Murray, the best webguy in the universe, with additions, deletions, and changes to the website ( Going to add the book trailer and move some things around. I've been like a racehorse champing (chomping?) at the bit, waiting for this. And now it's time!

Now the promotion can begin in earnest. Plans are to contact all the independent bookstores I've visited over the past few months and let them know the book is now out in the world. I hope they decide to stock it. I'm gathering friends and readers for reviews to post on Amazon and B&N and that involves making sure everybody gets a copy to read.

I've ordered 50 copies from Chalet, in addition to the 5 freebies I get from them. Yipperooni!!


  1. This is such an exciting time in the process. Enjoy it to the fullest (even while feeling overwhelmed). I'm looking forward to a good read.

    Be sure and let me know when we can see your book trailer. I'll include the link in one of my Bits & Pieces blog posts.

  2. Karen, after you've sold a thousand or two books this "overwhelming" thing will have faded into memory. What an exciting time for you and "Headwind."

  3. Thank you both so much! What an adventure!

  4. Congratulations on your new book! You've been smart to make friends with the independent book stores. That's the way to go these days.


  5. It's really neat meeting these folks and working with them. Thanks, Monti.
