A River in the Ocean

A River in the Ocean

The Kindle version of my book A River in the Ocean is being offered free on Amazon today and tomorrow. That’s right! I’m giving it away for two days, October 4 and October 5, 2013.

If you don’t have a kindle, don’t worry about it. You can still read the book on your computer and other devices. Kindle has free apps that you can download and they allow you to read the book on other digital devices like your laptop, your phone…etc.

So, get over there now and get your copy of my book! Then, I would really appreciate it if you returned to Amazon after reading it and telling the world how much you like it. Leave a review with five stars even if you have to lie about it…what would it hurt you to lie your ass off for your loving friend?

Get it now…A River in the Ocean

My Broken Piano, My Reading At The Vertikal Cafe

February 2, 2013 in Books, Commentary, Entertainment, Shows

Norm asked me to Bring the Love to his radio show with Celeste at the Vertikal Cafe! How could I say no?

My book of poetry published last year has brought so many people joy! The first time I was on the Vertikal Cafe I read In Memory of an Angel. I was asked to come back and the poem was requested three more times in the same show. I got quite a few snaps for that one!

So, I came back this time with My Broken Piano! It’s in my book of poetry Thoughts and Reconsideration. But, it’s also highlighted in my new book A River in the Ocean… Have a listen!


Excerpt from A River in the Ocean

Chris couldn’t find all the words. But as he looked at Amy, he started to find a few, “It’s like I have this whole other life I know nothing about. I’m trying to piece it together. But, nothing is coming. Maybe this is something trying to get out, trying to tell me something. But, I just can’t seem to figure it out yet.”


A River in the Ocean is a drama with a touch of comedy about a single father who is separated from his daughter after an accident puts him in a coma for nine years. She is raised by Maggie and Gilmer who have the best of intentions, but are not normal in any way, shape or form. Finding each other again is going to be difficult for the father and his daughter, especially since he doesn’t know he’s looking and she doesn’t know she’s lost.

If you would like to be kept up to date on the release of A River in the Ocean, please let me know. Put your name and email in the form below and I will make sure you are the first to hear about it. Your information will not be sold and I certainly won’t pester you either…

Amazon Now Publishes: Ideal for the Up and Coming Authors

November 25, 2009 in Attractions, Entertainment, Events

If you have polished off your novel and are looking for a publisher, you know that you could be in for a ride.  Even if you have the next best seller, get used to rejection letters.  They kind of come with the territory.

But, you have a good novel and you want people to read it.  Why don’t you take a look at what Amazon has to offer?

That’s right!  You can get published at Amazon, the world’s leading book seller.  Can you imagine what that can do for you and…your hobby, your career, your life’s passion…your wallet?

Amazon CreateSpace is the place!

No set-up fees, membership fees or any startup costs at all!  Simply upload your title and make sure you have a quality description.  Have your cover art ready and you’re just about there.

It’s set up with a royalty system.  When someone buys your book, you get the royalties that you set for yourself during the setup process.  Might be a good idea to get some idea of what books of your genre are selling for these days.

Here’s the best part…You get an ISBN.  You don’t pay for it.  Amazon CreateSpace assigns your book an official ISBN that gets you listed on authority sites across the internet including, but not limited to, Bowker’s Books in Print.  Everyone knows the only official published books are ones with an ISBN, and you don’t pay for it.  Amazon assigns you one when you decide to publish your book with them.

Plus, I shouldn’t have to tell you how perfect it is that your book is being published and listed on Amazon…The World’s Leading Book Seller!!!

There are plenty of benefits and it’s as easy as 1-2-3…
