The Wise Novelist

Thank You Black Rose Writing and Yvette Benson

I’ve was very blessed back in early March 2020 to receive an email from Reagan Rothe agreeing to publish my first novel, The Wise Ass. Changed my life.

I knew nothing about the publishing business. I was just thankful someone was giving me a chance.

When TWA hit the marketplace in February 2021, I didn’t know what to expect. I lit a lot of candles and said a lot of prayers.

It’s been almost two years since then and I have to say that BRW has been great at supporting TWA and the remainder of The Claire Trilogy that followed. It seems to have made BRW’s 2022 Best Seller’s list. When I checked yesterday, all three books were in the top 10 in Amazon’s humorous dark comedy category.

Now that doesn’t happen on its own. It happens because your publisher throws its resources behind your books. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you Reagan Rothe and the entire BRW publishing team.

Of course, I cannot rest on my laurels, so let’s hope the BRW’s marketing machinery can recreate the magic for Finding Jimmy Moran. Fingers crossed.

Sorry, I screwed up that photo. It is one of my inner circle readers/editors, Yvette Benson, throwing her “eyes” support into the effort. Her and Eileen C and Anna H all suffered along with me during the process. You’ll see a character with Yvette’s name dancing away in a New Year’s party scene. Thanks Yvette. Much appreciated.

Well, the day awaits and I need to flee.

But first a kitty cuddle, some rounds and then torture.

But it’s already hump day, so I can take it.

Thank you, all five of my fine readers, for throwing your individual and collective support behind my books.

I would be nothing without you. And that’s the truth.

Now go out there and make today a great one.
