A Story From Me, A Title From You

Plastic Surgery

With the imminent Exciting Press publication of my 2008 work, The Umbilical Word, I’ve decided the novel needs some cosmetic surgery. Nothing too drastic. No collagen in the prose or liposuction of the plot. Just a small alteration to the face of the book.

A title-job.

But rather than entrust this delicate operation to my own shaky-handed devices, I’m entrusting it to an expert:

You!

Exciting Press figures my venn diagram is a little more adjacent than Snooki’s.

In a deal announced by Exciting’s Creative Director, Will Entrekin, the cutting edge US indie publisher and I have signed a four book deal, encompassing my backlist quartet of novels – KindlingThe Umbilical Word, Most Valuable Potential and The Procrastinator.  The deal permits me to join a stable of wonderful writing talent that includes James Brown, Kurt Wenzel and Aussie literary icon, Nick Earls.

I’m really thrilled about the opportunities ahead with this partnership.  It represents a new lease of life for all my once-upon-a-time-in-print works.  Particularly gratifying is that, for the first time in any format, Kindling will be available in North America.

Stay tuned for release details and dates.  And if you’re a fan of Snooki, I’m sorry this post was so long.
