eBook Not Available

At the present time, I’m attempting to market Toil Under the Sun to agents and publishers.  Therefore, I’ve pulled the book from distribution until further notice.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

In the interim, you may purchase the print version until I have a definitive direction regarding the series continuation.  However, I may pull that as well in the months ahead.

writing-is-still-like-heaving-bricks-over-a-wall-quote-1The book is currently in the final stages and in the hands of Victory Editing.  I will probably have it back by mid-September or later, and October will be spent finalizing the eBook and print versions.  I’m going to launch on November 1, 2018, and will have it up for pre-sale from all vendors in early October.

In the meantime, I’m redesigning the covers after finding one that I liked much better, which I will share with you eventually. I’ve been too busy to start book two but plan to do so very soon.

As far as a dedication for book one, I’m memorializing my third-great-grandmother, Phoebe Holland, who committed suicide in 1862 by hanging.  The newspaper stated the coroner’s report came back as, “hanging whilst in a state of unsound mind.”  The situation has caused much conjecture on my part and a few of our relatives as to why she took her own life.

All my best,
