New Events Added to Cementville’s Paperback Tour

Cementville was released in paperback a few months ago, and I’m back on the road. 

In addition to the new softcover, Cementville can be downloaded as an E-Book for Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and Apple iBook formats. A limited number of 1st Edition Hardcovers are still available.

Purchase Cementville wherever books are sold:
Your local independent bookstore
Barnes and Noble

Booksellers, please consider stocking Cementville in softcover—and there are a limited number of 1st Edition HC still available too. Let me know what I can do to help your efforts to get great reads into the hands of your customers. We writers appreciate all you do on behalf of the literary community.
Book groups, perhaps the modest softcover price will encourage you to add Cementville to your reading list. I love meeting with book clubs, and have met with many around the country over the past year. Let me know if you’d like me to join you via Skype or in person if I’m in your area.
And dear readers, thank you for picking up my novel. I love hearing from you!
