Allow me to make a quick plug for my newly-published novel, Tipping Point. This is a tale of the next U.S. Civil War and so far all of the reviews have been of the "couldn't put it down" sort. I'm really pleased with that. Every new author goes through a period of self-doubt: did I just write a pile of crap? Is anybody going to want to read this?
I'm feeling much better, now, thank you. I'm gradually warming to the idea that I might actually have some talent for spinning a compelling yarn.
If you're inclined, please click that link above and get a short synopsis of the plot along with a sample of the story. Then, if you like what you see, there's a further link there that will take you over to the Author House website where you can buy your very own copy. That would make me feel even better than I do already.
