Motivate Your Writing! is now available! I just received a box of pretty books from my publisher, University Press of New England. To see the cover, go to my website at www.motivateyourwriting.com. It's available from www.bn.com, Amazon, and of course directly from www.upne.com!

Note that Amazon has a strange glitch in that it preferentially shows the hardbound jacketless library edition, which is nice but not what I expect most people will want.

I'll be in Fort Lauderdale this weekend, at Sleuthfest, which is at the Renaissance Hotel, in case anyone is around...

Ordering it now! Are you ever coming out to the west coast?

West Coast

Hope so--I've got a client in San Francisco, so I'm hoping to get out to California, at least!

Just to let you know, Barnes and Noble stores (at least my local one) and bn.com do NOT let you order it yet--it comes up in their database, but it is listed as not available. Amazon has it listed as a pre-order. UPNE's website lists it as "available in March" which I hope means "available now."

Looking forward to getting my hands on it!

Thanks--I was just checking the websites myself. I suspect the book just hasn't gotten to the distributor yet. Since my box o' books came from UPNE today, I'm guessing it's getting to the distributor about now as well. Assume "available now!"

Congrats, Steve!! How's it feel? Published!! Can't wait to see it at the store myself (and perhaps sell it as well)! I couldn't be more happy for you. Well, I could, but it would hurt. :"D

Steve -- I'm so excited for you. I just checked my order status at Amazon and they anticipate shipping in April!! I hope they're hedging and will update once they've received and processed their initial shipment. What a great milestone to see your book published.
