Roasting My Novel


(From the Philadelphia Museum of Art.)


I've been honored to be one of the original Roast Masters over at BOOK ROAST, a site where authors are invited over for a day to "roast" their book. It's a great way to have fun, get to know one another, hang out with authors, and compete to win a free copy of the featured book.

I'm nearing completion of my own novel-in-progress, So This Fish Walks Into a Cemetery. Tomorrow, the tables are turned, and I'm going to be the first Roast Master who is roasted. I'll be sharing a brand new blurb for my book as well an excerpt. Want to know what I've been working on? Want to win an Amazon gift certificate for $15?? (Who doesn't?) Stop over tomorrow and roast that Jason Evans dude!

I'll post a link to it tomorrow.

See you there!

Jason, how exciting - I didn't realize you were so close to finishing your book. I won't be able to get to the roast until later tomorrow. But, I will be there....

Jason, I've just read the excerpt from your novel over at The Book Roast. Wow! It's really, really good. (I remember reading another fragment a while ago and that was also very good.)
The blurb too is very interesting.
Good luck and my best wishes for anything that you want to do! :-)
