Tiara - Ten Years After?

Why did the man throw the clock out the window? He wanted to see time fly. Remember that from grade school...?

Well, I didn't throw no damn clock out the window. It sure has flown, though. It's been ten years since my first novel, Tiara, was published. I was going to buy the rights back from Publish America and found out our ten-year deal expired. That made it a lot easier to put Tiara (10th Anniversary Edition) out on Create Space.

What changes can we expect? Well, the world's changed over the last ten years. There was 9/11, the Patriot Act, Osama Bin Laden geting whacked, among other things. Of course, it won't change a book about the Good Friday Agreement of 1998---all that much. There is a different world view, but not enough to change the omniscient narrative (all that much). There's still all the action, thrills and spills, exciting characters, snappy dialogue, and all that good stuff that makes a JRD novel. The book's a little longer than the original, which means there's more stuff going on. It's definitely one you won't want to miss.

You probably won't be comparing novels anytime soon. Since Publish America no longer has rights, the Amazon dealers are getting $40.00 (!!!) for the original. I'm letting it go for $3.00 as a holiday special, so---support your starving artist TODAY---

---before another ten years go by and some vulture gets forty bucks for this one.

Did you hear the one about why the guy threw the clock out the window?
