Today is the official publication day of Cuppy and Stew: The Bombing of Flight 629, A Love Story. It's been a long time coming. Four years of research and writing the manuscript, a year of my agent marketing the manuscript, and another year of waiting for the book to come out. But there's another way of thinking about the timeline of this book. I met Susan Morgan, the person (and inspiration for the narrator) in the fall of 1976 at a sherry hour at Stanford University. We were married on May 8, 1982: 38 years. The blink of an eye.
Cuppy and Stew is now widely available on-line. During the month of May it is a Handpicked Book at www.SPDBooks.org, where it is 20% off. It's also available for order through your local bookstore, as well as on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
If you've already purchased a copy, I'd be grateful if you'd recommend it through your own social network. Word of mouth marketing is especially important this year when all live bookstore events and readings have been cancelled. I'd also be very grateful if you would post a review on Good Reads or Amazon. I've read reports that a single excellent review on Amazon can lead to the sale of 100 additional books. Is that true? I'd love to find out.
Stay safe, and keep checking this space. I hope to have some exciting news about reviews in the coming weeks.
