Pious was released one year ago and I, Kenn Bivins, was an unknown name in the literary field. There were no assurances to potential readers that my debut novel was worth their dime or time. Dozens of glowing reviews, book club features, top novel lists and a year later, one could say that Pious has done quite well in leading my foray into telling stories with words.
[alert style=”white”] Thank you to all of my readers, reviewers, critics, supporters and cheerleaders.
Pious could not have been a great success thus far without you. [/alert]
As of today, the paperback version has become a collector’s item, as I have ended my contract with the publisher. It’s a bittersweet feeling as I consider the finality of being separated from Two Harbors Press yet, at the same time, the freedom to take my creation to other media outlets. While I’ve done most of the marketing and promotion of Pious, they have served very well as a distributor and made Pious widely available in bookstores, online and in other countries.
The beginning of 2012, Pious will be listed as “out of print” so if you haven’t gotten your copy, secure one, or several, now. There is a limited number of autographed copies still available too but they’re going quickly.
My next tale, The Wedding and Disaster of Felona Mabel, will be coming soon. I look forward to being worth your dime and time again soon. Thank you for reading me.
