Apparently, my book could be banned in Russia. 

Laws like this are bad. Basically, the law states that you can't provide information about homosexuality to anyone under 18. Which means that if you are a teenager in Russia, and you are homosexual, no one can tell you anything about it except that you're bad and sinful, and that is wrong. So very wrong. I hope this changes, and fast.

I want to say: thank you.

My free promotion of The Shulim Cycle: Book of Dahlia was a great success. The book is in the hands of many more readers, all of whom I hope will enjoy the book and tell people about it. If you feel moved to, please share your thoughts on Goodreads or Amazon as well. For us self-published authors, those reviews are vital. 

Most of all...enjoy the book. That's why I wrote it. 

And don't worry. I'm working on Book Two now, which will be Book of Susan. I plan to put up some excerpts starting late spring or summer, and, of course, there is a Googe+ page for the book: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/117604567671829921594/117604567671829921594/posts

Today is your last day to download your free copy of The Shulim Cycle: Book of Dahlia. 

And if you have thoughts about the book, please feel free to share them on Amazon and Goodreads. Most of all, share them with your friends. Tell others about my book. This is a self-published work and it only succeeds if you, my readers, demand it.

Thank you.

The Shulim Cycle:  Book of Dahlia is now up for pre-ordering.  You will be able to get your copy in time for Christmas/other major holiday that I fail hard as spelling/ and we are offering it at a pre-ordered 20% off the list price.  On December 22, 2012, the book will go back up to it's full price, but until Dec. 15th  you will be able to get that 20% off. 

Thus far the reviews have been really good and we are hoping this series will have some legs, but for that we need the support of people that want to help out small businesses.  Even if after looking at the site you decide the book might not be for you, odds are very good that you know someone that would like this book.  Twitter, Facebook, re-posts of this are how we are going to get the word out.  We don't have the $4900 laying around to get the 3 months of publicity, so we are going to use our networking.

Thanks for all the help!

This is not the backer-edition cover. The backer edition has the same front cover, but the back cover will contain the summary only. There is no author pic and bio. Oh well. My backers will just have to be satisfied with Catherine's incredible cover art. GAH! I still can't get over it.

I'll be careful not to give a spoiler, but one of the characters of The Shulim Cycle: Book of Dahlia, Tracy,  is a lesbian and is part of a key subplot of the story. I wrote about her and the subplot because students like her exist in high schools. They still face prejudices. When it doesn't come from other students and family, it comes from school administrations.

I wish the story below was fiction. Unfortunately, it is all too real and what can happen when people stand up for the students that others don't stand up for.
