Looking forward to it!  Keep us posted.

I will! I'm almost done with the writing process, and the final manuscript will be sent to the publisher in less than a month.

I've sent the final manuscript into the publisher! There is a possibility that the book will be coming out in April instead of May.

It will be available on Amazon for certain. I'm waiting to hear back from Kings Island's merchandise director on whether or not it will be sold in the park.

Hope it's in the park.  I want my platinum discount on the book.  ;)

For real though, I'm looking forward to this.

I hope you have licenses for any photos you plan on using since you are selling this book. I would hate for you to get sued.

I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. Unfortunately, Kings Island: A Ride Through Time will be delayed. It will be out this summer instead of early May as originally anticipated.

Bummer to hear that. Very much looking forward to giving it a read once it's out. 

P.S. Once it's out, what will be the best way to support you as the author. Buying direct from the publisher? Amazon? Retail?

Buying the book electronically (i.e. a Kindle edition).

I hope you enjoy the book and I can't wait for everyone to read it. It's a longer wait but it will be worth it. :)

Excellent. Any chance hard copies will also be available (I'd buy both).

I don’t believe so. None of the publisher’s other books look to be on it. But it will be on Amazon for certain and possibly at the park.

Why is it going to be delayed?

Due to the coronavirus, the publisher will not be able to begin editing until June.

Also you created a good segway into mentioning that sharing info on the book on different aspects of social media and whichever outlets may be available to you would help too.  The cool part is that this may be of interest to anyone from the Cincinnati area and/or have visited the park regularly - not just people who talk about it a lot like we do.

KIC is excited about the book, and we are looking forward to helping get the word out about it as well.

A lot of GREAT things have happened today. Things have a way of working out and it’s a good thing the book has been delayed. There’s a lot of “surprises” to add!

New photos and images.

New interview.

New information.

All of which happened in the last two hours.

Kings Island: A Ride Through Time is going to be incredible. I think it's going to surpass all expectations!
