Countdown to Book Launch!

If Wishes Were Spaceships

It’s March!! You may think that it means that spring is just around the corner, or you may be looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day, or March Madness. Well, you’ve got something else to look forward to: If Wishes Were Spaceships will be released March 29th! It’s available for pre-order from most stores. It’s a standalone novel, but I’m already hard at work on a sequel to it because I just enjoyed writing this “stranded on a planet” story so much.

…And didn’t Donna Harriman Murillo do an amazing job with the cover art? Well, okay, most of you haven’t read the book yet (waving “hi” to beta readers), but she really captured Jazlyn perfectly! I don’t blog copiously on my author site, but you’ll be seeing a lot more posts there this month about the characters and story, and my thoughts on writing it. I’ve also got at least one live online interview lined up, though that won’t be for a few months, so stayed tuned for more science fiction adventures, and happy author blogging!

Here are some of the stores that have the book available for pre-order. More coming all the time until book launch March 29th! 🙂 Amazon USAppleKoboSmashwords.

A slight variation of this was originally posted on my author site…one of the rare few times I’ve cross-posted. If you don’t want to miss anything, add A Truant Disposition to your WordPress reader or other feedreader.
