Happy Release Day to me!

Hey, you guys are really going to dig this book (I so want it to be a book club selection - hint, hint) - check out the blurbs:

It's release day! Go get it, people! I'm counting on you to help me make this my breakthrough! (Prefer a paperback? I'm not sure where that is right now, but the Kindle version is live!) Wooohoooo!

“SHORT BUS HERO has it all: Down syndrome, hoarding, suicide attempts, heart attacks, betrayal, redemption, angels, winning lottery numbers, and big time professional wrestling. A dark, sweet, and poignant tale about what happens when you follow your dreams.”
— S. G. Browne, author of BREATHERS, BIG EGOS, and FATED

“If you were the big Lottery winner, what would you do first? Why, resurrect the career of your favorite professional wrestler, of course. Touching, violent, hilarious, tragic and surreal—SHORT BUS HERO is an inspiring and emotional story.” — Richard Thomas, author of STARING INTO THE ABYSS, co-editor of BURNT TONGUES

“From a mind-bending cornucopia of eclectic ingredients–troubled lottery winners, pro wrestlers on the skids, and restless angels are just the tip of the iceberg–Shannon Giglio has expertly crafted one of the strangest, cleverest, and, yes, sweetest, tales I have ever read. This wonderful novel has it all: ingeniously imagined characters, rousing and poignant adventures, and, perhaps most importantly, the true heart of a champion. Anyone who enjoys great storytelling will love this book.”
- Bill Breedlove, author of HOW TO DIE WELL

“SHORT BUS HERO is an emotional roller coaster of a read, with vivid characterization and crisp dialogue, at times humorous and touching, upsetting and uplifting, complemented by a cast of wonderful characters who leap off the page and embed themselves in your psyche. This is not a horror novel, a fantasy novel, or anything in between–it is a hell of a story with the most unlikely cabal of heroes who give us all a sense of hope and wonder in an unforgiving world. Do not miss this one from an exciting author firing on all cylinders!”
— Dave Thomas, DarkFuse

Huh? Huh? Looks pretty good, doesn't it? Where can you find it?
