0.00: Tales of the Sober Kid at College to Be Re-Released

Joe’s first novel, 0.00: Tales of the Sober Kid at College, will be relaunched in January 2014 with a new cover design, seen below.

The original novel was released in June 2012, but updating the cover has been on the to-do list for a while now. No other changes to the novel are expected to be made at this time.

In order to accommodate the redesign process, the print version of 0.00 on CreateSpace will be temporarily unavailable. The digital versions on Smashwords, Amazon, and other online retailers will soon follow. Finally, the book website will undergo an upgrade in January.

Updates on the statuses of the sales options will be made available on this site and the book page.
