Murder Behind the Closet Door at Amazon.com

So far the response on my new novel, "Murder Behind the Closet Door" has been fantastic. Five star reviews on Amazon.com, lots of great comments on the MBTCD Facebook Fan Page!

I'm very excited about the opportunities that online publishing has opened up for authors like myself. For years the only way to get a publisher to look at your work was through an agent, and the only way to get an agent to look at your work was if you were already published. This limited new authors to either having a friend in the industry, or taking the academic route and publishing through college resources. Well, no more of that. Now, with social media and inexpensive online publishing aspiring authors can submit their work to the world and let the audience decide on whether it's good enough to read. And once a work is established as being commercially profitable, it will be a lot easier to convince traditional agents and publishers to take a look.

At least that's the plan. It's also a lot of work, a lot more work than writing the book itself. But I'll try. And as long as people keep buying Murder Behind The Closet Door and giving good reviews I'll keep on trying to get it published mainstream!

Thank you to everyone who has purchased and read MBTCD. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
