It’s official! The release date for A Man’s Passion is set for January 9, 2021. I got done with a marketing survey detailing the book’s synopsis, marketing strategies both locally and nationally, as well as Britain, and what similar books that are out there, that would compete or compliment what I’ve written.
This last part is tough because all the books that I found so far that are out in print are nonfiction tomes dedicated to Black Lives Matter or similar anti-racist tracts that are not necessarily what this book is about. Yes, it deals with a subculture of racism that seems most prevalent in the South, but its not the entire story itself. There is more to this book than that.
For a short novella, it has a lot to offer the reader and I thank writers like Mark Twain and Harper Lee who didn’t write Michener or Hemingway-like books of over 100 thousand words. My book barely tips the scales at a little over 30,000. I think Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird were around 90,000 each.
I hope my loyal readers will have the opportunity to buy my book on January 9th and enjoy what I’ve written.
