A few years ago, after writing for more than half my life, it seemed like I’d never get my work in front of readers. I was ready to call it quits. Ready to leave all the manuscripts I’d ever completed in a drawer where I’d only see them in the rare instance of me deciding to organize.
But then a funny thing happened. A publisher believed in my work. He championed it and showed me how to connect it with potential readers. He published it. That book was NO SAD SONGS, and that man is Jon Wilson of Fish Out of Water Books. I owe him a major debt of gratitude, because now I sit here on the eve of the release of my second novel–a middle grade series this time–with the second book in the series already written, signed, sealed, and delivered (and set to be release sometime in early 2020, so stay tuned).
Jana Grissom and the folks at INtense Publications have been very, very good to me. They picked up a story I’d written many years ago as a tribute to my ailing pooch, and they helped me turn it into so much more than I ever intended it to be. My doggy, Mike, would be proud if he were still here to see this. The most important thing is, I’m proud. And I’m overjoyed to finally see this story make its way to my readers.
I hope you’ll pick up a copy of PLEASE RETURN TO: NORBERT M. FINKELSTEIN, so you can delight in the daily shenanigans of a struggling middle school teacher who just happens to moonlight as a pro wrestler. Please don’t be afraid to snoop on Norbie’s “missing” journal, and definitely don’t be afraid to share your thoughts in a review on Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, or wherever you talk books. I’d love to hear your honest opinion.
