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:

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.


Desert Son wins Cover Wars Book of the Week!

Published December 6, 2015 by glennmaynard

Desert Son cover

After a hard fought battle, Desert Son came up victorious in the Authorshout.com Cover Wars Book of the Week contest. I’d like to thank the Academy, as well as all of my supporters who voted for my book on Facebook and shared the posts. This cover was produced by David King, who is cover design director for my publisher, Black Rose Writing. He is currently working on the book cover for my sequel, Wayward Soul, which will be released on January 7, 2016. This week I will be finishing up the third book in this Desert Son trilogy.

The great part of this contest was the reach this book got in the process. The attention this book received in my attempt to get votes was phenomenal, and all I was really doing was entering a competition. However, when I noticed second place crawling closer to me, I flew into a panic and took to FB, email, even phones, and ended up with what became an insurmountable lead. It was fun, productive, and I think I need a nap now that the pressure is off.

Here is my book listed as Book of the week:
