Author and poet Kate Evans is asking fellow writers to support her debut novel, For the May Queen, which will be officially published in October. Besides helping a novelist get off the ground, those who purchase the novel for $12.95 when pre-ordered can support Vanilla Heart Publishing, a small publisher.
As one blurber states, the eighties-era novel "is a compelling coming of age story. Through a first-person narrative that is as intimate and engaging as the finest memoir, Evans takes the reader on the humorous and chaotic journey of spirited Norma Rogers as she navigates her first year of college."
Better yet, authors can learn a thing or two about marketing from Evans, who will be doing a one-hour online interview about her book on Sept. 20 on BlogTalkRadio, an organization to remember when you're launching your own book.
Besides teaching in the English Department at San Jose State University in San Jose, CA, Evans is the author of the poetry collection, Like All We Love, and a book about lesbian and gay teachers, Negotiating the Self.
