The story world begun…

Here’s another short vlog from my process of creating the story world of my novel, The Next Testament. The story is set in an alternative near future dystopia. But how did we get there?

An insane civil war that left the country shattered.

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.

Office Extension, Aruba

Not sure which part of the office this happens to be, but I was working on some story material yesterday at The Beach Bar, located on Palm Beach, Aruba. Here’s the photo:

My temporary office extension, Aruba.

Took the old Mont Blanc pen and put it to good use. This is the one that was recently repaired. Performed perfectly, as did the Jack Daniel’s to the left. Very nice view here, just a few steps away from Scott’s Brats, in front of the Playa Linda, where I would have been but they’re closed on Sunday. Have to swing by today to fuel up. Bon dia and keep reading!
