This isn't a sport's team...it's my launch team.

At 3:00 AM I googled myself (yes, I am that weird) and found out my book, PAST DUE, had a CLICK TO BUY button.

Gone was the COMING SOON...replaced by CLICK TO BUY!!! Be still my beating heart...it's for sale!

I contacted the publisher; she informed me it was for me to get the books ahead of the launch...which was slated for mid-June.

Buuuuttt....I wondered...since the story takes place on the Outer Banks and I'm currently lounging around the Outer Banks, can I launch it now and use this trip as a tax deduction?

Launch my dream and write it off? I'm feeling dizzy.

"Sure crazy lady," Karen, the publisher says. "You want to take it public, you go girl." (She didn't really say that, I'm paraphrasing...and just down right putting unsaid words in her mouth!)

Anyhow...the book is available in print from Amazon and in print and E-Book from World Castle.

Now. I must go happy dance by the seashore. :)

  5. Oh wow, I didn't know your story took place in the OBX...that is one of my favorite places! We went there 3 summers in a row, but the past 2 summers we couldn't afford to vaca. We've stayed in Rodanthe, Salvo, and Frisco. When I lived in Va. my parents had a house in Corolla which we went to every few weeks. So that place is very near and dear to my heart. Wild horses, buffalo, sand dunes,the sound, deep-sea fishing, SURFING...oohh I'm weak with envy. I hope you are having a blast!!! And I am so excited about your book launching :) I guess I should have put that first but you wrote Outer Banks and I swooned. I love the island feel of that place.

    All three of my books launched early. Well... and the one my friend Steph and I did, we put out early as well.

    And YES to the tax decuct!! WOOHOO!!

    I'm writing a book set in Paris (or have started, and WANT to finish) I told the hubs that the trip would be TAX DEDUCTIBLE!!
    We still can't afford it, but it's now officially on the "list"
