I am excited to announce that WFTE will once again be available in hard copy in the not too distant future. I've been flattered on a few occasions when people have asked me if they could have a copy they could hold in their hands, but it was disheartening too because the hard copies printed by Iron Horse Literary Review back in 2012, aside from the one my wonderful wife Tina had framed for me, are long gone (There's a rumor that one copy is still available at Powell's Books; I don't know, though. I haven't checked)
So for those interested in reading Waiting for the Enemy but who hate reading books electronically, or those who want a copy you can hold in your hands that you can then burn in a youtube video to show me how angry the book made you, fear not; you soon will be able to physically destroy or physically enjoy WFTE.
The other big news that I've been barely able to contain for almost a year is that my second Kindle Single (Battle Rattle) is currently in the copy editing stage at Amazon. Andrew Eisenman, and I talked about a variety of ways to get this book into reader hands, and finally it was decided that doing a Kindle Single again was the way to go.
I've been pretty mum about this book for a while due to all kinds of anxiety created by things that happened over the past year: not all of them bad. I am the father of a happy and healthy one-year-old now. But my anxiety about sharing this news with family and friends now that things are set in motion has morphed into excitement and happiness.
So be on the lookout for news about my upcoming book: Battle Rattle. I am excited and honored that Amazon and Andrew Eisenman have once again chosen to believe in my work and to help me share it with the world. I have a lot of people to thank for this book, but for now, I'll just say thank you to Tina for believing in me no matter what I choose to write about and thank you to Shannon for motivating me to keep writing even on the days that I don't want to.
More news to come soon. Thanks for reading.
