And so it goes. 

And so it goes. 

Words about stuff about words. 

Finally! Movement!

I'll confess: I've been waiting and waiting for some big-time TV people to decide whether or not they want to use my new book, OUT, as the basis of a series. It's seemed pretty hopeful. But then...not. 

At first I was full of excitement at the possibilities. I thought about how amazing it would be to see my story on TV, and to get feedback from so many people. Then time went by. I started to think it wasn't going to happen. More time passed. I was pretty sure it was a dream permanently deferred. 

But I still have my book. I still believe in it. And my angel of an agent, Natalie, is helping me get it out there even though we've had to endure great enthusiasm and no spine from several publishers. We're self publishing. We're doing it on our own. 

This is a whole new world in publishing, to be sure, but we're not the only ones doing it. The old model of the big-time New Yawk City editor is fading; as in music, creative endeavors are going out directly to the people rather than being filtered through an established judgment machine. This has its upside and downside. The upside is that artists have more control. The downside is that artists have more control. Anything can get out there, and probably will. How do readers separate the wheat from the chaff? 

I'm hoping quality rises to the surface. I am also hoping that those of you who are fans and friends and onlookers will help me spread the word. OUT debuts on January 14 as a Kindle book. I will need help in getting the word out. I need and OUT Army. Are you up for the challenge?
