Today is Kings of Broken Things Pub Day!!!

pub day flowersThe day is here, it’s pub day for Kings of Broken Things!

Thanks to all of you who have supported me throughout the process of writing this book and now through its publication. In particular, quickly, my agent Stephanie Delman and editor Vivian Lee, two rising stars in the industry who I’ve been so blessed to work with; my whole team at Little A who have been busy perfecting and promoting Kings; the faculty and staff at Creighton University, especially Mary Helen Stefaniak for working with me clause by clause on straightening out the early drafts of the book; my mother-in-law Karen West, who for years made sure I could both have time for family and to write; Akademie Schloss Solitude and Key West Literary Seminar; and of course Nicole and my family for always sticking with me and showing me that we’re worth too much together to settle for less than the best. And, last but certainly not least, thanks, Mom, for teaching me how to read and to appreciate the importance of good books. I’ve dreamed of this day so long and am not sure what more to say. So, CHEERS will have to suffice.


Bad Faith Pub Day!!!

box o booksIt’s publication day for my first book!

Thanks so much to all of you who have ordered Bad Faith or bought a copy at one of my recent events. I’m very grateful for all the support.

If you haven’t ordered a copy but would like to, Bad Faith is available online from Queens Ferry Press, Amazon, and IndieBound. Also, there are a limited number of signed copies at The Bookworm in Omaha, Indigo Bridge Books in Lincoln, Magers & Quinn in Minneapolis, Boswell Book Company in Milwaukee, The Book Cellar in Chicago, Prairie Lights in Iowa City, and Beaverdale Books in Des Moines. If you’d like a signed copy but can’t get to one of those locations, message me here or hit me up on social media and we can work something out.

There’s been some recent press about the book, if you’re interested, as Bad Faith was listed on The Million’s Most Anticipated: The Great Second-Half 2016 Book Preview, and articles were printed in the Omaha World-Herald and The Daily Iowan.

It’s funny timing for the official launch date, as tonight in the final stop on the seven-day book tour I’ve been on the last week with Dave Madden and Tyrone Jaeger. There will be more on the tour later, but for now, let’s celebrate!
