Connect With The Outmate

News from The Outside

Well, I now have the first ever printed proof of The Outmate in my hands. It's beautiful! I have to say, it's one of the happiest moments of my life to hold three years of hard work made tangible between a glossy cover. Until now, it didn't seem quite real to me.

It's real now.

The first day I received my printed novel, I ran around like the proverbial chicken with no head showing anyone and everyone I came across. The last time I was this excited was my first date with my Beloved. I had one friend who took the book out of my hands to "check it out" and wouldn't give it back to me until the next morning. That was my first unofficial positive review. Kinda neat.

I've already scanned all 385 pages (can you say huge?) and have sent all my corrections/comments to the publisher. I should receive the second and final printed proof within two weeks. Then The Outmate will be converted for Kindle within another nine days, and will be immediately released in both formats on Amazon. If all goes well with this time table, this puts us at exactly Sept. 1 for publication.

So get ready! The final countdown has now commenced. There is still much to be done but we're almost there. Going live in 5... 4... 3... 2...
