What is it?
It was originally conceived when an author on the Kindleboards saw a message from a deployed troop member saying that Amazon’s Whispernet for Kindle doesn’t work overseas. The author sent the troop his book for free by email and the idea was born, and grew. He now collects names of deployed troops who would like to receive eBooks and he has shared his list to any author who would like to donate eBooks.
What I’m going to do.
I’m going to donate Double Out and Back eBooks to military personnel by sending them prepaid ebook coupons from All Romance eBooks.
It’s my way of thanking those who serve our country overseas – and in a way, it makes me feel like a member of the USO because I’m doing my part to entertain the troops!
Last week, I completed the first round of professional edits for my upcoming novel. Surprisingly, I am invigorated to dive back into this manuscript. I have been working on novel number two for some time now, and the distance from Double Out and Back has granted me objectivity necessary to improve the prose. The changes are not huge, but the meticulous detail and agonizing over the best way to craft each paragraph, sentence, phrase, and word become a labor of love.
All of this means I am one step closer to publication. Hooray! I can’t wait for you all to read it when it comes out.
