On the First Day of Christmas, a Reviewer Gave to Me…Five Golden Stars…TWICE!

Published December 25, 2015 by glennmaynard

Under the gun due with an approaching deadline for my publisher, this reviewer hunkered down and read Desert Son and Wayward Soul in two sittings. As she explains in her reviews, it was her fascination with the subject matter and the way I put  spin on it that kept her glued. Read more, and Merry Christmas to you!

Here are the links to the reviews for each book:

Book Launch for Wayward Soul

Published December 15, 2015 by glennmaynard

My new book, Wayward Soul, which is the sequel to the paranormal romance novel, Desert Son, will be released January 7th, 2016 by Black Rose Writing. I just worked out the details for a book launch. This event will be at the Barnes & Noble bookstore at the Buckland Hills Mall in Manchester, CT on Saturday, February 6th. The rest of the details will be forthcoming. They will be ordering copies of my three books, Strapped Into An American Dream, Desert Son, and Wayward Soul. Be sure to save the date and come down and pick up a signed copy of any of these books, and I look forward to chatting about them. Any day now, I will be revealing the book cover for Wayward Soul, as it is in the final edits of production. Hope to see you there!book-launch


First Draft of Book Four: Check.

Published December 9, 2015 by glennmaynard

As I prepare to lock down the text for my third book, Wayward Soul, I have been back and forth with my publisher (Black Rose Writing) with a December 29th deadline. I’ve also been back and forth with their Cover Designer. Today I received a great looking cover, but asked for some changes so that the cover was more in line with the theme of the book. It looked awesome, but just minor tweaks needed. I also finished the first draft of my fourth book, which is book three of the Desert Son trilogy (untitled). The books grew in size from the first to the last, and here is the breakdown:

Desert Son: 60,000 words.

Wayward Soul: 88,000 words.chapterone-writing-a-book-300x199

Book three: 101,500 words.

There will not be a fourth book to my trilogy. Carter and Brenda are my main characters, and they’ve been through hell and back. After the third book, they will be ready to retire anyway.

Note on my first published book, nonfiction, Strapped Into An American Dream (Strategic Book Publishing): I am currently slated to not only have a book signing at the CT RV Show in January, but I will be speaking four times during the weekend, and look for me in the advertising. We’re currently in the works to set up a book giveaway for the first #people to pass through the door. The number of books they will be purchasing is in the works, but could be triple digits. The owner of the publishing company for this book is also trying to get my book in rv parks/campgrounds with a kiosk of books. Things are starting to happen for book #1. All of this has been a ton of work, but if you keep on keeping on, good things will start to happen, and that time is starting to bloom for me.
