It’s official. Beginning January 15, through January 22, you could win a free, autographed copy of One Night in Bridgeport. Go here to enter …
About the name. I was the youngest of four. Until I got to kindergarten, I didn't have much to say. All I had to do to get what I wanted was to point, and a sibling, or loving parent, would fulfill my request. As a result, my father coined the nickname -- King Midget. At least that's the way the story goes.
I am a father, husband, friend, and lover, writer, runner, pizza maker, baker, and many other things. What I am not is my occupation. It is my job that pays the bills and provides for my family. But, it does not define me.

You have 211 people requesting so far– that’s awesome! Will have to learn more about this whole giveaway business someday 😀
Yes it is … and so far not one of them has bought a copy of the book. I’m sure that once they don’t win a free copy, they’ll be flocking to Amazon to purchase their own. 🙂 We’ll see what happens in the next few weeks.
You never know 😉 If you aren’t using a random method to pick, you should pick someone you don’t know through blog or real life… Might help spread the word!
Goodreads controls the selection of the winners. If nothing else 239 (at least at the moment) have taken a look at the book. They wouldn’t have looked at it otherwise.
Interesting. The wording when I signed up made it sound like it could be random or it could not be. Definitely worth the exposure, I’ll do the same thing someday… And, btw, looking forward to your release of Weed Therapy, traditionally published, of course!
Yes … traditionally published. My 2012 experience with self-publishing has convinced me that I don’t have the time, energy, or personality for that type of endeavor. Of course, if I fail at ABNA and can’t get an agent or publisher for Weed Therapy, a year from now I may be singing a different tune again.
Here’s hoping it works out, then! Someday, when I’m ready, I look forward to picking your brain about self-publishing. I don’t have high expectations, just want to put my work out there if no one else will do it for me. 🙂
If you follow Carrie Rubin, you should also pick her brain. I believe she entered the publishing biz with much more of a plan. The right person, with the right time, and the right type of energy and effort can make self-publishing a success. Not sure I’m that person.
Interesting, will have to check her out. Not sure I’m the right person either, but maybe someday.
