I decided to release Life Line as an ebook publishing experiment. My first three novels have been available electronically for some time, but they were created and put out there by HarperCollins. I decided to tackle this project myself so I could get a feel for what it takes to make an ebook, as well as the process for getting it published across the major platforms. I learned a lot, and at some point I’ll write about my (at times incredibly frustrating) experience.
Josh Wilcox is a thirty something single dad looking for love (or at least some half decent sex) in his post divorce world. He’s dragging along some hefty baggage (a murdered daughter will have that effect), but manages to get his act together and jump back into the dating scene. He discovers that things have changed a lot since the last time he was single, and that finding a good woman, even with the questionable help of online dating, is a serious pain in the ass.
After a handful of dates that could give the Apocalypse a run for its money, he meets Pam. She’s cute, funny, enjoys sex, and is, thank God, mentally stable. She has some baggage of her own, but at least manages to brush her hair.
Then he learns that one of the women he previously dated is a sociopath who’s neither forgotten nor forgiven him. She decides Josh needs to pay for his sins, and she’ll stop at nothing to make sure he does.
I set up a separate website where you can read excerpts and order it directly for your ereader of choice. It’s currently available for the Amazon Kindle (in the US, UK, and Germany), Apple’s iBookstore, and the Barnes & Noble Nook. It should be available at some point on the Kobo and Sony eReader, but those two platforms have been dragging their feet for weeks and quite frankly I’m tired of waiting. If you want a copy for one of those readers, get in touch and we’ll work out an arrangement.
I hope you decide to give Life Line a read. It’s inexpensive ($2.99!), so it won’t make much of a ding in your wallet or purse. It’s funny and sad and racy, so there’s a little of something for everyone — but it’s definitely not for kids! The content is very adult, so you should consider yourself warned.
