About Green Bay Outsiders (Video Transcript)
Hey everyone, it’s Jay Lemming.
I hope you’re doing well. So this is it! This is the last video in my launch series leading up to the publication of my new novel, Green Bay Outsiders, in in only two days, and I’m pretty excited about it.
I’ve been pretty busy lately trying to get it ready for launch, but I am pretty excited. This novel is from The Maddox Men series, which I’ve been writing for several years and it’s a coming-of-age novel, right? So the first couple of videos that I’ve shared with you have been about
1. the end of childhood and what that’s like, and then
2. You know, I talked a little bit about different coming-of-age novels–certain types of novels I like.
Look Homeward, Angel by Thomas Wolfe is my favorite coming-of-age novel of all, and that’s what Green Bay Outsiders is essentially based on. It’s a story about Carl Daniels.
He’s a young man. He’s just graduated from college in Green Bay, Wisconsin and he’s had all these ideas in his head about what adulthood is going to be like and what that future is going to look like when he’s an adult. And what he realizes, when he has the freedom of graduating from college and going off into the world, is he realizes that all those ideas that he’s had, they’re not quite as exciting to him as he thought they would be.
And so he rethinks a lot of parts of his life in a really short period of time, and it’s about all the emotional angst and all the relationships and how they’re being impacted by this kind of change of heart that he has.
So now, on the verge of Launch Day, for readers who pick up a copy–for the first five days, I’m going to throw in a couple of bonuses just as an incentive, because I’m really excited about the launch.
So if you are going to pick up a copy from Amazon on the first five days, I’m going to throw in these two bonuses. One is going to be a copy of my novel, Billy Maddox Takes His Shot. That’s another novel from the Maddox Men series. And Carl Daniels, the protagonist of Green Bay Outsiders, actually makes an appearance. He actually plays a pretty decent role. And so they’re both from the same series of books.
And then the second bonus I’m going to throw in is the chance to win a free Kindle Paperwhite. So when you pick up a copy of Green Bay Outsiders, there will be a link to a form and you fill it out and then your name will be entered into the chance to win the Paperwhite.
And I’ll make an announcement a little over a week or so about who the winner is.
So that’s about it.
Launch Day is only two days away. I’m pretty excited. I really hope you enjoy reading the book. If you do pick up a copy and you want to share with me what your thoughts about it are, I would love to hear from you.
And that’s about it so I’ll see you on the other side (of the launch, that is), and in the meantime, stay safe.
I’ll talk to you soon.
