IndieReader published a brief interview with me about Warren Lane. http://indiereader.com/2016/03/andrew-diamond-talks-about-warren-lane/
Where did the name Warren Lane come from? Warren Lane is the name of a tiny street in Charlottesville, VA. It’s only a block long. I passed by it one day in 2006 when I was biking to work and the first thing that popped into my head was, “That’s the name of my first book.” For many years, I told myself that I’d write a novel someday. Now I had the title.
I’ve been getting a lot of feedback about Warren Lane. While the positive feedback provides much-needed encouragement, the negative feedback has been the most useful. There have been three consistent themes to the negative feedback: The story isn’t told from the point of view of a single character that I can get behind and root for. There’s too much dialog. It’s hard to sympathize with the characters because they’re all messed up and they make bad choices.
IndieReader posted a nice review of Warren Lane today. 4.5 stars! Their verdict: WARREN LANE is a charming comedy of errors, with a good heart and a light touch. I’m glad they liked it!
Thanks to Bryan Cyr at Everything Noir for posting a review of my book! Book Review: Warren Lane by Andrew Diamond Check out the site if you like classic Hollywood noir, the crime writers of the 30s and 40s, or the pulp fiction writers of the 50s.
Warren Lane is finally out there, available for purchase as both a paperback and an electronic book. You can get it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple iBooks, and Kobo. Or you can order a copy through your local bookstore. You can also read a sample chapter right here. Aside from hiring a professional editor and book designer—because there are some things you shouldn’t skimp on—I did everything myself. And I’m amazed at how much work it takes.
So I wrote this book called Warren Lane, and it should be available for sale in the next week or two. I made the final revisions to the paperback proof copy, and the electronic versions are ready to go. I’m just waiting to review the updated paperback. The other day, I came across a blog post that said all writers should answer these three questions: Why did you write the book?
