On the Precipice of Publication

The wait is almost over.

For six months last year, I pitched New York literary agents with book proposals for “How I Became A Lesbian (and other stories)”. All of them offered websites upon which to put my work, but I found myself waiting around for broken promises. Realizing I’m not getting any younger, I asked a sophisticate in our neighborhood for advice.

He suggested that I partner with Amazon.

As a former deejay on K-POT – an L.A. pirate radio station – at first, I was amused. But I checked out Amazon Publications, and the idea of invading literary society kept appealing to my non-conformist mindset.

Consequently, it’s time to announce that Amazon and I have been working together. Amazon is a publisher well-connected to the Internet, and its commitment to the environment is apparent, because it creates print-on-demand books.

Together, we are making final touches to the heart-rending product of our journey. And Alice approves. After all, she danced on [American] Bandstand.

Keep tuned.
