Between writing Episode One of my crime noir serial, The Awakening of Kenny Black, and preparing my short story collection, Fell on Black Days, for publication, it truly has been the Summer of Black for me. Here’s a brief update on these projects and more:
If you’ve been reading about Kenny Black’s adventures on this website, you may not be surprised to learn that Kenny’s a little exhausted, both mentally and physically. While he’s taking some time to get his shit together in preparation for Episode Two, I’ll be combining the Episode One chapters, making some much needed edits, and preparing to publish the premiere episode on Kindle. If you haven’t caught up yet, you can read the Episode One chapters here: The Awakening of Kenny Black – Episode One.
The other reason for Kenny’s break is that I’ve been busy preparing Fell on Black Days for publication. The official release date is Tuesday, September 2nd and there was plenty to do to keep things on schedule. Eight copies are available on Goodreads as part of a book giveaway. The promotion will go through August 26th, so if you haven’t yet, head out there and sign up for your chance at a free copy: Fell on Black Days Goodreads giveaway.
This past week I’ve received some prerelease copies and am extremely happy with the final product. I can’t wait until copies will be available to the public. In the meantime, a free preview of Black Days is still available on NoiseTrade Books. It contains four of the collection’s stories that will give you a good sample of the overall collection: NoiseTrade Preview
Last bit of news I wanted to share is that War Kids author, H. J. Lawson, recently interviewed me for her Indie Journey Interviews series. If you want to peek inside the mind of a deranged author like me, read on: The Indie Journey Interview of Jeff Swesky
