The sun was thinking about poking out of the clouds as tim and I drove down to the Central Park Coffee Shop in Owatonna for the launch of Straight River by our own Chris in Owatonna. There was a nice crowd to welcome Chris’ new book, which is a “prequel” (is that truly a real word?) to his first book Castle Danger. Chris read a chapter from the book and also introduced the head of his local Big Brother/Big Sister organization. A portion of Chris’ proceeds goes to support BB/BS, a group he has volunteered with for years.
It’s been three years of hard work for Chris, re-working, editing, sending the book to beta readers, re-working some more and editing some more. It was a nice launch for the book (cookies and lemonade too) and I’m looking forward to reading it. Maybe this summer it can be one of our Blevin’s Book Club titles. (It’s available already on Amazon in kindle format and Chris has links on his website to other ways to purchase it.)
Congratulations Chris – hope the third book in the trilogy comes a little easier!
You’ve just written a book. Describe your main character!
