How the book began…

The following is a short video, showing how I sketched out an idea for a story, the very beginning. It evolved into my novel to be released in October 2019, titled, The Next Testament.

I usually start with a title. Everything points in that direction. From there, I start sketching out some of the big concepts and action that will take place. Then it’s characters. More vids to follow, showing the details of the process in short form. Stay tuned.

Impromptu Book Signing, Aruba

Rita and her husband have read all my books, including the latest, Dark Currents. Naturally, they’re big fans of Aruba, too, and happened to be on the island last week. Since they toted Dark Currents all the way from Connecticut, it was time for an impromptu book signing at Scott’s Brats, one of my favorite joints on Palm Beach.

People are always smiling when they’re in Aruba. The island has that effect on you. So does a good book! Enjoy the reading.

Fans Big and Small!

I received this photo from Jeff and his father-in-law, the D-Man, holding up Dark Currents with the little one in between.

These are a couple of cool dudes who like to read. All the best guys and thanks for the pic! By the way, you can never start a child reading too soon. In fact, the younger the better. You can’t learn everything from a book, but you can save yourself a lot of trouble.

Universal Coverage, the novel…

My novel, Universal Coverage, came out late in 2009. Now with the Supreme Court decision, may I shamelessly recommend this book for those who would like a preview of what’s to come? Go ahead, read it. Won’t hurt a bit. Here’s the cover.

And a brief look at the inside, which gives a peek of the attitude of some people in the story.

As always, you can find the book on Amazon.com where it is also available for Kindle. Happy reading! (But be warned, this book is a lot like 1984.)
