A Tale of Two Hearts Released

This is the day! My very first novel has been released. A Tale of Two Hearts is the first installment in the Treasure of Morro Bay trilogy. And it has all the stuff the young readers love—an ancient mystery, an enchanted crystal, and a strange disk with very special powers.

So grab yourself a cold beverage and one of those delicious appetizers and come on in. There's a party going on! Sit here, in the leather chair. If you have any questions, just ask away.

What's that? Where did the idea for this novel come from? That's an interesting question. I actually got the idea for this book during a drive down Pacific Coast Highway 1 in California a few years ago. Morro Rock was the actual stimulus for this novel, and it plays a large part in the story, as you will learn when you read the book. I'm going to put a link to the Amazon site where you can purchase your very own copy if you'd like to. Here's the LINK!

And now for the news about what's happening today. In honor of the release date, I'm going to give away a signed copy. There's an obvious reason for this. As a self-published author, it's up to each of us to promote our own work and try to build some momentum and sales. So, here's a win-win proposal. In return for the opportunity to win a free copy, I'd like to enlist your help in getting the word out. Here's all you need to do to be entered in the drawing for the signed copy:

1. Leave a comment below.
2. Tell me that you've tweeted the Amazon link. (and/or)
3. Tell me that you've included the link on a Facebook post.
4. If you'd like to mention it on your blog, that would be great, too!

Please be sure to include your email address in the comment so I can reach you if you're the winner. Comments will be accepted until April 22nd at midnight. At that point a winner will be selected from a random drawing.

Thanks for your help and good luck!
