It's been a long time coming but after numerous delays my novel Joshua is finally ready. For those expecting complementary copies you should receive them in just a few days! If you followed along with my first draft please note some story changes have been made, nothing major, but you probably want to start over from the beginning.
On my Joshua website I have posted the first five chapters of the book. If you like what you read I hope you will buy a copy. It is available in paperback and also on Kindle.
When I started this in July of 2010 it was just an interesting experiment. I had been writing (websites and blogs) for years but always wanted to try my hand at fiction. I had an idea that I thought would make a good story but never got around to putting it down. Finally I decided to just do it and with a few chapters completed knew I had to show it to others. I couldn't keep it to myself. Fortunately for my ego the large majority of responses were favorable. You early readers really encouraged me to finish it!
I've had a lot of fun working on this book and learned a great deal about writing and myself too. I finished a project I wasn't sure I could and (hopefully) created something that others might enjoy. That's all I really wanted, to do what I loved and at the same time entertain readers with my words. I hope that I did.
Now if you'll excuse me I have to get to work on my second novel!
