Excited to announce the release of Pedal

I’m excited to announce the release of my 2nd novel, Pedal, which examines the life of 49-year-old elementary school music teacher, Joanne Brick, who is fired and struggles to reclaim her life back through bicycle racing.FRONT ONLY_lower res

This uplifting story tells how Joanne—who lives with her bossy older sister, and ailing mother—deals with unemployment, loneliness and loss of self-worth. Pedal is a contemporary family drama based around the theme of daring to change and how ordinary people deal with those changes. (Beyond the Book Store just did a wonderful review of Pedal.)

Great news for all who own a Kindle, Assent Publishing has reduced the e-book price for the next couple of days to only 99 cents! For more info and to purchase, here’s the link: http://tinyurl.com/Pedal-Kindle

Thanks, and I’d be very grateful if you would share.

  1. Congratulations, Louis! Shared via Twitter, FB, and reblogged. AND I just downloaded my copy!! (Now to find time to READ, so I can review…don’t ask anyone else how badly I’m doing with that! 😦 But I promise to try my best! Soon, I hope.) What a nice Christmas gift for you, to have this out and getting good reviews already. Way to go!

      • You are so right about this community, Louis, and the great thing is, it’s growing every day. Since the big jump to 2,200+, I’ve been watching it closely, and it goes up and down a bit each day, in a very normal way, so I’m starting to believe the number is correct. (None of my other blogs is acting weird.) And I think that taking part in two of Rosie Amber’s special tours is probably what really gave this blog a boost, in addition to the tours being lots of fun. She has a LOT of followers, and they are great about sharing. So, my hat’s off to Rosie, for sure.

        Crossing my fingers for a great start to your sales. Please keep us posted, and remember to post any promos you like here, too. 🙂

        • That’s interesting, Marcia. My pinterest page made a similar kind of leap – though not near those numbers. It was around twenty-five and then in a period of a week or two it jumped to over 250. I think with pinterest it’s something about the algorithms – followers begets more followers, though it did level off.

          Will definitely keep you posted on promos & such. Thanks, Louis
