The Painted Man has been completed and is ready to hit online booksellers and brick and mortar bookstores everywhere. The ditribution process takes from 2-4 weeks so the printed version of the book will show up on websites like Amazon.com and BN.com by the middle of December 2006. Of course, the book will be available here at www.speculativefictionreview.com/FrameIndexAdPaint.htm very soon. For now, you can go to the webpage and download a free preview of the first three chapters. If you like what you read, please post a short review to let other readers know what you think.
