I was encouraged by a couple of friends to enter HAUNTING INJUSTICE in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. It is the first time I have entered any of my writing in a contest of this magnitude.
That being said, I know I have done everything I can do. I think I wrote a pretty good pitch. They take one in five entrants into the first round based solely on your 300-word pitch. That happens on Feb 25.
If I make it past the initial pitch review I will consider this exercise a success. Wish me luck.
Just a reminder that HAUNTING INJUSTICE is still available for pre-order at my website. For each copy ordered between Jan 15th and Jan 31, I will be donating $1.00 to the American Red Cross – Haiti Relief Fund.
If you are considering a purchase, please do so by the end of the month. Help me help the people of Haiti.

It’s something totally different to hold your book in your hand, to see your name on the cover and to open it and read the dedications on the pages within. I’m sitting here reading my book, one last time. I had a couple of issues with the cover that has to be addressed. (Silly me, I had the spine text upside down. …. oops)
So… since I had to order one more proof anyway, I figure it is prudent to do one more read-through and see if there’s anything else that needs taken care of. I’ve already found a couple of minor things to fix. In the end, you will have a better book in your hands.
My schedule is still on track with having books in hand by mid February and start filling those pre-orders with signed copies and a Haunting Injustice bookmarker.
Also, I will be donating $1.00 to the American Red Cross, Haiti Relief Fund for each copy ordered between now and January 31. Please go to www.theprodigalscribe.com to place your order.
On Friday of last week, my debut novel, HAUNTING INJUSTICE, became available for pre-order at my website. While I can’t say copies are exactly flying off the shelf, I am still taking more orders than I expected.
I have decided to donate $1.00 from the purchase price of every copy sold between now and January 31 to the American Red Cross, Haiti Relief Fund. If you are considering a purchase, please do so now and take advantage of this offer. A per-order will get you a copy of the book signed by me and a custom bookmarker.
Take a look: Excerpt from Chapter One of Haunting Injustice.
The cover for HAUNTING INJUSTICE is ready. I am jazzed. The artist did an awesome job.
I don’t know where I will find the time to do everything that has to be done. I agreed to do a website for my brothers high school class as they get ready for their 50 year reunion.
You can see that at: Myrtle Beach High School – Class of 1960
Between that and beefing up my online presence at Facebook (which I’m sure that means more than playing Mafia Wars) and other things related to the upcoming release of HAUNTING INJUSTICE, I am getting further and further behind on my work in progress… HAUNTING CHARLESTON. (working title)
Anyway…. here is the cover.
Look for the link to pre-orders in the very near future.
