This post is to announce that the manuscript for I Will Ruin You is now in the hands of the publisher. I thought about publishing the book myself. I know how to do it. I know how to market it. And I have the connections to get it out into the world. Ultimately, though, I know the book will have a more significant impact if a traditional publisher releases it. I’m also confident that WildBlue Press is the right partner. They are an author-friendly publisher who consults with the author at every step in the process.
The manuscript will be assigned an editor sometime in the next few days. Once revisions are made and a final draft is approved, then it will go on to a copy editor. I’m fairly confident that the book will be out sometime in the spring, maybe as early as March. I’ll keep everyone updated.
In the meantime, I want to recommend a few stories involving wrongful convictions. First up is the book The Edge of Doubt. This book was released this month. It involves many of the same themes found in my book. You can read my full review on my www.everythingnonfiction.com site. The story involves false allegations of child abuse started by a woman with ulterior motives. It is an unbelievable story well worth your time.
My next recommendation is for the documentary The Phantom. This is another heartbreaking story. You can read my full review on my everythingnonfiction.com site. This story involves a man with limited means who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. You can catch this film on Netflix.
