Hi, Everybody.  I have great news to share with you. I have just made the Potholes paperback available for sale on  If you are coming to the Book Launch Party on January 7, 2016, from 2 pm to 5 pm – we will have plenty of discounted copies of Potholes on hand.

We will also have limited copies of Billy’s Cascade & The Turn of the Dime.  I can’t wait to see you all on January 7, 2016, at Blackbird’s Grille in Sayville, NY.   Also, Blackbird’s has created a special menu for $28.00/per person which entitles you to beer/wine, appetizers and a signature cocktail called The Pothole for the duration. You may purchase the bracelet online or at the event.

If you can’t come to the event, you can order Potholes here and order either the paperback or pre-order the Kindle version.  If you purchase the paperback book from Amazon, you will be able to get the Kindle version for only $1.99, or if you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read it for free.

If you’d like an autographed copy shipped to you, you will be able to order it until January 3, 2017, plus costs of shipping.  After January 3, autographed copies will not be available for sale except at the Book Launch Party and subsequent live events.

In closing, Happy New Year!  I hope that you all have a Happy & Safe New Year and I’ll see you at the party!  Pictures will follow, and we’ll even be live that day too!

Thanks So Much

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.

My author’s proof. So proud.
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.

I’m very happy to announce recently I received another review for Billy’s Cascade. Thank you, Sarah. I’m so happy that you enjoyed the book and I thank you for being one of my readers. You’re the best!

Getting Down to the Wire

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.

I hope to see some of you at the party, and if you can’t make it but want you own copy of Potholes and have it signed then click this link here.  We will also go LIVE on Facebook that day too so I can’t wait to share this with you.

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.

Until next year, all my best.

Take care

It’s Another Excerpt from Potholes

Hi Everybody.  I hope that you had a great week, and to kick off this weekend I am going to show you another excerpt from my new upcoming novella Potholes  which comes out on January 7, 2017.    Hope you like this.

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.

Have a great weekend

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.

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.

Quick Message

Hi, Everyone.

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.

Have a great week!
