It's here !

Hello again...

Just a quick update to let you know Street Cred has gone live. It is now available from your favorite retailers (iUniverse, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, et al) in both paperback and e-reader. You'll note that the e-reader edition is priced at $1.99, which once again qualifies me as Two-buck Chuck (sorry 'bout that, Trader Joe).

Enjoy!

Dear Faithful Readers:

It has been a long, slow grind, but Street Cred has gone to the printer and should be available in a week or ten days. In the meantime, here is the final version of the cover, created by my Lake Forest Roundtable colleague, Diana Huang. 



The soft cover edition will be available first, followed shortly by the e-reader version. It has been a challenging journey. Waiting now for that automated GPS voice to say, "You have arrived."

Back cover - version 2.0...

Dear Faithful Readers:

Thanks for the interesting feedback on the proposed back cover copy for Street Cred. Based on your suggestions, here is the revised version:

Nicholas Shane Jr. heads for work on a bright June morning, his first day on the job with the Vallejo Street Department. Nick has definite goals in mind: earn a baseball scholarship to a major university, bank a few dollars to pay the bills, and hold on to Donna, his first love. But his most important goal is to honor the legacy of his late father, a legend for his blue-collar work ethic. With his father's lunch pail in hand, Nick has no idea of the adventures ahead or the characters he will meet along the way. It's a road with many potholes, but it teaches him the lessons of friendship, loyalty, love, and loss. Nick travels far from home, but his heart never leaves the streets of Vallejo.

C.W. Spooner returns to his roots for this story of home, family, and friends, both old and new.
