I needed a break from hours of final edits and thought to come and ramble here instead. The decision has been made, although I think there will still be some self-kicking for it. I am going to try self-publishing "Midnight to Morning." Already there is a small plan in place to converse with regional stores and how the income from any copies sold will be used to further expand the books reach. Of course, the best thing would be for you to read it. It will be sold on Amazon and I think Barns and Nobles sites so writing reviews are also helpful. If you enjoy the book, telling others would be amazing too. For my international friends, yes it will be available overseas.
Many have asked for a synopsis of the book, and it is something I struggle with putting into words aloud. Let's see if I do better in print.
Nichole and Gareth Jones find themselves living in a British run refugee camp after the United States government has collapsed under the disaster of multiple attacks. Life is tough in the camp, but they have made the most of their situation and are assisting others...until a double tragedy occurs. Nichole finds herself in danger, but also finds that she is being watched by what she is told are "good guys" on the outside. Through a series of events she finds herself on the outside of the camp, in a place she didn't know existed and with a group trying to prevent a global catastrophe. It is a story full of unanticipated twists and turns, some frightening, many inspiring and all on how she goes from the midnight of her life to the dawning of a new day.
The hope is to have this out by late October, early November. Anyone who is interested in helping with a last minute "beta test" I would be forever grateful.
