The smoke has cleared and I can finally see the carnage and destruction in my wake. Torn, twisted and ripped carcasses litter the landscape. I hang my head, happy to be alive, and breath a sigh of relief.
Is this a soldier leaving a smoldering battlefield? A mass murderer that just committed an atrocity? Did the Joker that just outwit Batman?
No, its simply the aftermath of the Book Signing and Release Party of TIME ASSASSINS!
November 10th marked the start of Veteran's Day Weekend, where people showed their support for Veterans with praises, hugs and simple thank yous. I received my share of those and to all that support our Veterans...I thank you. November 10th also marked the Release Party for my second novel, TIME ASSASSINS.
TIME ASSASSINS was a work of painstaking research, frustration, writer's block, complete lack of motivation and edit after edit after edit; I'm still amazed that it is complete and out. The Book Signing and Release Party was an absolute success, millions of copies flew off the shelves and I'm still wondering when the New York Times Best Seller List will have my name at number 1!
Seriously, it was a lot of fun, a lot of work, and a great day. I met dozens of people, saw some old friends and made some new fans. The energy was great motivation to continue on...to continue the search for the Holy Grail: A big time contract.
But, until that day, I will stand amidst the carnage, the torn pages, and ripped covers. I will risk the carpal tunnel by signing too many autographs. I will do it...because it must be done. And when the smoke clears, I'll be there, laptop in hand, writing the next one.
