i WILL TRY TO BE BRIEF AND NON-SELF-PROMOTING

Yes there is a new book out shortly.
The first book, ARUBA I AM YOUR ISLAND pulled quite some good reviews and is still selling briskly.
I have been working on something for about 5 - 6 years and finally have received good help in making it workable.
It is called CARIBBEAN CROSSROADS and the first book in a trilogy of books.
The original story was close to 600 pages. Went to the editor and SNIP SNIP SNIP as I mourned what I thought was a loss.
She reorganized the material and now CARIBBEAN crossroads will come out as a 200 page novel.
The other books will round themselves off and at least one of them should be ready by late summer 2018.
The final one will show its face in 2019.
The trouble is always ... sales. Publisher has given me fair warning on that. No sales then no second and third (at least not with his publishing company)
The goal will be 30,000 copies sold.
I told him that nothing is impossible - except a perfect marriage. LOL.
Thanks for the mails and WAZZUP's on this topic matter.

Be open to alternative paths of publishing.
Yes, Kindle Indie support.
Also, as a "motivational case study" consider a look-see at LMBPN Publishing.

What about 2 years of collabroative, imaginative effort can do.
