First Big Review

I know no one reads these other than me but someday someone just might show up. Anyhow, the first independent review has come in on Luck of the Draw and the book got 5 out of 5 stars. Barnes & Noble has posted the review on their site. I will post the link below. So, for any of you ghosts out there who might want to take a look, jump down and take a peek. Thanks. ANT

Sorry, I have been lazy. I received the galleys for Luck of the Draw on Aug 28th. Galleys are review copies that are sent out to, you guessed it, reviewers. My agent asked for one copy since she will be having producers and scouts coming through her office the next couple of weeks and wants to check for interest. I also sent a copy out to a friend of mine in Hollywood who knows people at Paramount Pictures. He said he would try to get it in front of the right pair of eyes. The book itself is still on schedule and it is a little less than three months away. My agent said the sequel is ready to go and she will be making the approach to St Martin's Press shortly to guage interest. That's all for now. I am sure I am the only one reading these so why bother going too long? ANT

First Pass Pages

Yeah, yeah, I know. I have been lazy. I got the first pass pages July 16th and spent a few days going over them. First pass pages are the typset pages the way they will look when in the book. They looked real good. There were some corrections I found that had to be made so I sent them back and they will all be taken care of. Then I will get them back for a final look before they go off to be printed and bound and made into a book. December 8th is just over 4 months away. The book, Luck of the Draw, is now available for pre-order EVERYWHERE. Go to any online bookstore and type in the title or my name. Then grab one! Every copy sold helps. I also have started my own webpage. Please go check it out. The address is Thanks for stopping in. ANT

Long time, no type.

Yes, it has been a while. I finally heard from my agent a few days ago and she likes what I have done with the sequel to Luck of the Draw. She gave me a few "brushstrokes" as she called them to consider with regard to revisions. Her insight is very keen and I have already begun working on the suggestions. As for Luck, it is still on schedule for December 8th, so if you haven't gone to and pre-ordered one, you'd better go soon and grab one before the price goes up. It's only a matter of time. OK, thanks for stopping in. Later, ANT

Not Much Going On

Still waiting for word on the Luck of the Draw sequel. These things go so slowly it gets frustrating. Luck of the Draw is doing OK in pre-order. Many of my friends are really coming through for me by grabbing a copy or getting the word out. It's gonna be a long six months to wait for the release. ANT

Thank you

Just wanted to give a quick thanks to all who have pre-ordered a copy of Luck of the Draw. The more I can sell, the better print run I will get on the book, the more stores it will be carried in. The sequel is now in my agent's hands and hopefully I will be hearing back from her soon. If it is up to par, then it will be offered to St Martins for publishing. That is also why the pre-orders are important. They will be looking at my track record for sales when they think about publishing me again. Hopefully it all works out. So, if you haven't yet, take a jump over to and type in my name. Pick up a copy of Luck of the Draw. Later, ANT
