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.

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.

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!

What’s Been Going On?

Hi, all.  I know it’s been a while since I posted something, but I thought that I would take a minute and let you know what I’ve been up to. First of all, I hope all of you had a really fantastic summer.  I most certainly did.  I got to see my favorite musician of all time: Garth Brooks at Yankee Stadium!  This concert was spectacular.  I also had my first signing and my friend Roy Mauritsen was with me at the Marriot Springhill Suite in Yaphank, NY.

Now I’ve got even bigger news to share with you.   This has been in the planning stages for a long time now and I am so happy to be able to share this with you.  While I can’t just give you the full details yet, know that it’s fantastic news that I can’t wait to share with you.

I also have some other news which I will be releasing shortly, and yes, I do have a third book coming out in January.  While not as long as Turn of the Dime or Billy’s Cascade, I prefer to think of this as a “one-shot” and it will be available on January 7, 2017 via Amazon, Barnes & Noble and perhaps your local bookstore too.

Of recent I’ve received a lot of messages about a fanfiction based project that J&P Productions and myself did about ten years ago called “After Impact: The Audio Manga.”  A lot of you have asked since it has been 10 years since the debut of that web series if it will make a comeback.

I’d like to set the record straight and let you know that at this time, there are no plans to re-release After Impact.  If this does make a comeback, we will definitely make all our dedicated fans aware on and through my channel as well.

Also, we would also like to get the support of Funimation and Gainax films if this project would be brought to fruition, and most certainly the episodes would need to be remastered in HD/4K standard, re-edited, and in some cases redrawn to provide the most spectacular show for you.   If this project is truly a possibility, I will definitely make you all aware.

I hope that this has answered many of your questions, and we thank you, and also keep your eye out for a special gaming walkthrough that I will do through Double J IT Consulting on the new TheSims4: City Life Expansion pack when it is released on November 1.   You can see this video on the Double J IT YouTube channel which will be announced shortly.   It’s my second video that I’ve done for my company, you can actually see me narrate a tour of our latest build here: 

So that’s all for now.  Thank you for your continued support of the novels, J&P Productions and Double J IT.   Take care, and I can definitely say this time:  See Ya on the Next Vid.

Peace 🙂

Billy’s Cascade on Kindle

Good Afternoon, Everyone.


I thought that now was a good opportunity to announce that Billy’s Cascade is available now on Kindle!  Also, I have even better news.  If you purchased the paperback versions of The Turn of the Dime or Billy’s Cascade, or both, you can get the Kindle editions for a special reduced price thanks to Amazon’s Matchbook program.

In order to qualify you must have purchased the paperback versions of The Turn of the Dime or Billy’s Cascade directly from Amazon.  Third-party vendors aren’t eligible  Sorry. If you do prefer Kindle versions though, you can still get the Kindle versions at a reduced price aside from the Matchbook price.

Either way, I hope that you are enjoying both books, and I hope to hear some of your feedback soon.   Remember if you’d like to send feedback about the books the best place to do this is on Amazon’s review page, and also feel free to visit my author’s page which will be updated with event signings and pictures shortly.

Thanks again for your great support, and stay tuned for the next event that will be announced shortly.  I would just like to say, because of many of you who have given me your support, my dream of becoming a full-time writer has become a reality.

Thank you again.

See you soon,
