Hi Nicole,

Just had to post when I saw this. I never get tired of looking at this image! If I may be so bold as to answer the question above, the novel is in the final stages of approval and will hopefully be available in the next couple of months, maybe less (and never fear, a free copy will be on it's way to you soon ;) ).

Not sure if it's kosher to post links in someone else's journal, so PM or e-mail me if you want links to my site and my blog.

You've created a powerful piece here, Nicole, and I was (and still am) so pleased by your efforts. It can only enrich the readers' experience.

Sincere thanks,
Bob F - Author of Dark Brand

Hi Bob :)

Didn't realise you were on DA! I'll put a link to your DA page in the description! I'm looking forward to reading the book and am happy to mention it on my site and here (just drop me an email) :) There's already a link to your site in the description, any other information you want with the piece, let me know.

Glad you like it :) I thoroughly enjoyed working on it!

Thank you :)

I'm itching to get my copy of the book (I haven't read it yet, only snippets from which to do the characters from, and they were really interesting)

Hey everyone! Just found out something. Though my book is indeed coming to Amazon and other retailers, you can get it Right Now from Lulu, the publishing service that helped me out.

If you follow the link to my site under Nicole's comments for this picture and go to my blog from there, you'll find a link to the site where you can get the book.

Sorry for the confusion; I'm still a little new at the business-end of publishing. Hope you enjoy the read.

Fond Regards,
Bob F.
