Wow! Thanks to all of you for your great feedback on the Potholes book trailer. Remember, if you liked it, it’s great that you message me. Don’t forget to click onto the like button and hit subscribe on my YouTube channel. If you feel inclined, leave a comment. I’d appreciate your feedback.
I have to hand it to Roy Mauritsen. Didn’t he do a fantastic job on that trailer? I think so too. Not to mention, Kristen Nelson is just terrific in that voice-over. It was so great to work on a video project with both of them. It’s been close to ten years since I worked on any type of production so to be back in this environment is just great for me. I’m quite elated to be in the producer’s chair. Speaking of productions, there’s quite a few special events that we plan to announce in 2017 and I’m really happy to share this with you soon.
If you haven’t seen the trailer, then catch up with it here and please feel free to share the link with your friends. You can pre-order Potholes for both Kindle and paperback editions by clicking on Buy The Books at the top of the menu.

Hi, Everyone. We’re getting closer to the big day! I’m very excited. Potholes is a very different book for me. I’ve always wanted to do a novel that highlights my “warped” sense of humor and Potholes was the perfect device for this. More so, I’m just in love with the story. Keep in mind, you can still register for the Potholes Book Launch Party on January 7, and you can pre-order the book for Kindle and the Print Version here.
I can’t wait until Potholes comes out. This book is quite unique to me, and I can’t wait to share this with you. Also, keep in mind that both of my current books The Turn of the Dime and Billy’s Cascade are free with Kindle Unlimited. In addition to Potholes, I will have copies of The Turn of the Dime & Billy’s Cascade on hand too.
It’s going to be a great time. Thank you so much to Blackbird’s Grille for allowing me to sponsor the event, and thanks for your support and your help.
I am amazed at how fast my platform has grown this year, and how quickly we continue to grow. Your support has made me grow, and I am honored that you’re sharing in this journey with me.
In closing, I want to wish you all A Very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Special Thanks to my Pre-Read Team. All of you have been fantastic, and I thank you so much for volunteering your time to pre-read this story.
I would also like to say that two authors whom I have immense respect for Patrick Thomas & Annabelle Costa also served to be on my Pre-Read Team and I thank both of you for your time and great feedback.
Lastly, I would especially like to thank my best friend and editor Kristen, and my great cover designer and good friend Roy Mauritsen – and especially my hubby Marty for putting up with my idiosyncrasies during this process. Thank you, Honey.
Hi, Everyone. Well, today is December 1 and to kick off the Holiday Season – I’ve decided that for 24 hours that the Kindle version of Billy’s Cascade will be free to download. The reason why I’m doing this is because I’ve just received the fourth review for Billy’s Cascade and I’m very happy about it.
Thanks for all of your support and all of your help. I’m really happy to see that I’ve received another review for Billy’s Cascade and I wait until Potholes comes out. You can register for Potholes here. Just to let you know, Potholes will be free with Kindle Unlimited once it is released.
Thanks and have a great day today. Remember Kindle Unlimited is one of the best ways to get access to thousands of books. Try it today.
In closing, I’d like to extend a Happy Veteran’s Day to all of our Vets who have served to protect our freedom. Because of you, each day we get to live in our great country and we honor your sacrifice.
I personally thank you for all that you have done for our country.
Also, and this directed solely at my Call Center Friends, you can win a FREE Kindle copy of Potholes and be put on my Pre-Read Team.
All I need you to do is guess which real-life friend I modeled a specific character from in this particular scene. Hint it’s not: Jill, Karen, the Manager or the friend that comes up to her at the lunch table.
The first right answer will get a Kindle download of Potholes BEFORE it’s release date and be put on my Pre-Read Team. It happens after three specific letters are mentioned. Guess what they are?
Former Call Center Buddies, are you listening?
Let me know what you think, and if you like the books leave a review.
While I’m sitting here watching the Giants game and doing research, I’ve decided to do another Free Kindle Book Giveaway today.
Starting tonight when the clock strikes midnight, the Turn of the Dime will be FREE to download on Kindle on Amazon, without a Kindle Unlimited Subscription. The Turn of the Dime will be free all day for twenty four hours until midnight of the same day, and if you like the book, tell me what you think by leaving a review.
Before I go, I’d like to extend a shout-out to Maria, Annie, Jim and Mark. Maria, concerning your last question, I have fixed the site so now it is easier to download the books, or buy them. Thank you for bringing that to my attention about making navigation easier. Annie, thank you for you email too. I look forward to hearing from you again.
Jim, thank you for your wonderful comments about the Turn of the Dime. I’m glad that you liked the book, and thank you about your suggestions concerning the exclamation points. In review of your suggestion, I have re-edited the book and removed the excess exclamation points. Also, concerning your question about a sequel? That’s a possibility, and I certainly have considered it. If I do decide to go forward with a sequel, I will certainly make you aware of it.
Thank you everyone once again for reaching out, and helping the site to grow. I truly appreciate your support and I’m glad to see that the site is growing.
Remember you can ask me questions here, via email, on Facebook, or Twitter and maybe I’ll feature one of your questions in my next blog post.
I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend. I most certainly did, and I hope that you were able to download the FREE books I had for you in their Kindle editions. If you didn’t, it’s ok. Just to let you know, if you’re an Amazon Kindle Unlimited Subscriber you can download The Turn of the Dime and Billy’s Cascade for FREE all the time!
Also, if you’re trying to order the paperback version of The Turn of the Dime and are finding it difficult, it’s because we are making some minor changes to the book. It will be up on Amazon in about 48 hrs. Just to let you know these changes are not anything that affects the story in any way, there were just some minor typos that were pointed out to me by some terrific readers, and for that, I thank you both for messaging me and letting me know about it. I have taken your advice and I’ve committed those changes both in the Kindle versions and the paperback.
Thank you all for the nice Birthday messages that you sent me, and just the wonderful messages in general. I truly appreciate your support and thank you.
