A new stage

I’m done, but not really. Actually, anybody who thinks you’re done with a book after they’ve finished writing is delusional. Today, publishers expect writers to do their own marketing. I’ve been organizing an e-mail list of about 375 names, not to mention my FB Friends. Anybody who’s on my list should expect to receive an invitation to my release party from 2-5 p.m. April 5 at the Tavern of Fine Arts, 313 Belt Ave. in the Central West End.
