Happy Re-Release Day Disappear With Me!



I can not even contain my excitement that Disappear With Me is now available. Get it directly from Amber Quill Press this week at 35% Off



Dedication:

Just like the first edition, the second edition is dedicated to all the pastors in my life who made scripture come alive for me and help me understand that even though I am a gay man, I am still a child of God and just as deserving of his grace and love as anyone else.
In no particular order, this is dedicated to the Reverends Carolyn Wilkerson, James Burns, Justo Gonzales, II, Heidi Peterson, Ian Gregory Cummins, Cynthia Cearley, and Bill Calhoun.

Acknowledgements:
I said after my first novel that doing this takes a community of support and that becomes more evident to me every time I do this. Here is a list of the people who helped me along the way.
First of all, I’d like to thank my partner Thomas for his continued support of writing career. Even thought there are times we would both rather be sitting on the couch watching TV together, he knows I need to sit at the laptop to achieve my dreams and goals.
I’d also like to thank my parents, Tom and Peggy Frech, for their enthusiasm and support. Mom works hard as a beta reader, usually letting me know exactly where she is every step of the way. A big thank you to Dad who read the manuscript and gave me some notes.
Thank you to my brother, Rick Frech, and sister-in-law, Lori, for their help and continued support. A big thanks to my brother Kevin for encouragement as well.
This version of Disappear With Me would not have been possible without the help of my writing group. Although they don’t always tell me what I want to hear, they always tell me what I need to hear. In alphabetical order: Michele Helsel, Larry Hightower, Gina Lapp-Rinker, Jane Perry, Emily Parnell, and Judy Swofford.
Although they didn’t help with any of this manuscript, because I wrote it before I joined them, I want to thank my critique group, “House of Manlove”, for everything they have taught me and I applied to the editing of the second edition.
All the pastors listed in the front of this novel truly did contribute to my interpretation and explanation of the verses presented.
A big thanks to my beta-readers who also let me know exactly what they think: Eunie Carkuff, Abi Carter, Barbara Curry, Elaine Foiles, and Pamela McDowell.
I want to thank, by name this time, Jeanne DeVita, Kerry Mand, Kelly Shorten, Celina Summers, and Dominque Eastwood to this list for giving Disappear With Me its first chance.
And a BIG THANK YOU to the entire Amber Quill Press team for helping me keep Leander’s story alive and available.

To celebrate the release of Disappear With Me, I am giving away a copy of my first novel, A Place to Call Their Own, available from JMS Books on Amazon and other online retailers .

Surprise!! A Place to Call Their Own is Available for Sale!



A Place to Call Their Own is available for sale, two days earlier than scheduled! It is on sale for 30% off for Memorial Day Weekend.

http://www.jms-books.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=29_105&products_id=1436

Here are the acknowledgments for the Second Edition:



Writing a novel and preparing it for publication takes a community of family and friends dedicated to one's success.  I am thankful to have that in my life. 

First of all, I want to thank my parents, Tom and Peggy Frech, for their continued support and encouragement. 

I want to thank Rudy Waldner for his support and navigation through publishing and Claire Curry for her help in editing. 

I couldn't do this without help from other authors.  I want to thank Sherry Foley for her insights as a new author.  I'd also like thank Sheila Roberts for her insights as an experienced author.  I don't think this journey would have been as smooth as it has been if it had not been for either of these ladies providing advice on different topics.

I want to thank the following people for reading various beta versions of this novel and providing me feedback: Eunie Carkuff, Barbara Curry, Elaine Foiles, Pam McDowell, and Heidi Peterson.  A special thanks goes to Angela Schafer for her editing and insight on the manuscript. 

A very special thanks goes to Marianne Johnson for naming Frank and Gregory's horses, Dove and Daisy.  After posting on Facebook for help, she came to the rescue and named the horses.

I want to thank, by name this time, Jeanne DeVita, Kerry Mand, Kelly Shorten, Celina Summers, and Dominque Eastwood to this list for giving A Place to Call Their Own its first chance.
