What a way to start a Monday! First, my latest book -- Henrietta's Journal: A Life of Compromise -- just became available for pre-ordering on Amazon's Kindle page. As a pre-order, you can get it for $2.99, and your copy will automatically appear in your in-box on September 19th. Of course, you can wait till September 19th and order it for immediate delivery (if you are into instant gratification) , but by then the price will go up to $4.99. The special price reduction is for anyone who already wants to read this story of a young English woman who marries into a cotton-dealing South Carolina family in the 1830s. The book follows her day-to-day musings as her slave-owning new family disintegrates into the turmoil of seduction, rape, murder, opium addiction, and kidnapping. There's a bit of something there for everyone!
Go here to place your pre-order. Send me a copy of your receipt, and I'll enter you into a drawing for a signed trade paper edition.
The other good news this morning comes in the form of an announcement that sometime in the middle of last night, this website has hit a milestone marker -- TWO MILLION page views in the past seven years.
Thanks to everyone who faithfully reads these blogs posts and checks out the book announcements at Katzenhaus Books.
