Living The Dream

Join me to celebrate the launch of my latest novel

Ghost Owl

at a book-signing party

next Thursday evening, November 2nd

from 5:30 to 8:30

at Hoppy Brewing Company

6300 Folsom Blvd.

in Sacramento, California

Free appetizers

No host bar

Ghost Owl is the 3rd book in my Avian Series, preceded by Yellow-Billed Magpie and Red-Tailed Hawk.  Each book is a stand-alone story, but features many of the same characters.  It’s nice to read them in order if you like, but it’s not necessary.

Now that I’ve retired from teaching, I feel very blessed to have the time and resources to pursue my writing as it’s been a passion of mine for over 40 years.

I’m very proud of this particular story.  I hope it will touch your heart.

I’ll be selling all my books at the party (including my short story collection, Rover) for the low low price of $5 each.  If you’re not in the Sacramento area, my books are all available at Amazon, and on Kindle as well.

If you can attend, please tell me right here in the comments ( or drop me an email or text or whatever) so I’ll be sure to have enough food!  (Hey, I just ordered Sweet Potato Tater Tots!  You won’t want to miss that!)

Living the Dream

Hello, friends, family and friendly folks whom I have never met outside this virtual plane! I’m here to tell you that

My Debut Novel

Yellow-Billed Magpie

Is now available for purchase

On Amazon and Kindle!!

 Cue the balloons and fire works! Yes! It has been my dream to be a published novelist for nearly four decades. Well, actually first it was my dream just to write a novel, but once I figured out how to do that then the dream became finding a way to share the novels. Today the dream is coming into fruition!

So how come I feel like a nervous wreak? I guess because now I need to learn to market the novel. Please allow me a few moments of shameless promotion: Please buy my novel. Please read my novel. Please love my novel and then write a 5-star review on my Amazon page.

The commercial continues: Yellow-Billed Magpie is reasonably priced. The cover is absolutely beautiful. It was designed by Karen Phillips who has done an amazing job for an amazing price. (Check out her site here: http://www.phillipscovers.com/what.html ) This books look so beautiful that it naturally follows that they would make beautiful Christmas gifts.

My book comes with this guarantee: I will never ask you if you’ve read my novel. I will never ask you if you like my novel. Of course I hope you’ll read it and enjoy it—and tell me so—but I won’t ask. I won’t put you on the spot. No worries, no need to avoid me. No risk, so give it a try.

If you live nearby, please drop in at my Launch Party this coming Thursday evening, October 1st at Hoppy’s Brewing Company, 6300 Folsom Blvd., in Sacramento, Ca. I’ll be there with big boxes of books from 5:30 to 8:30. We’ll be serving wonderful appetizers. No host bar.

I’ll be selling copies of Yellow-Billed Magpie for the low introductory price of $5 each on October 1st only. Come and buy multiple copies. Give them to your friends. Of course I’ll sign them. Maybe they’ll be rare collectables someday. Or maybe you can get 50 cents for them at your next garage sale. I don’t know yet, but I hope the story touches your heart. That is my sincere wish.

Okay, that was my first attempt at marketing. More later. I have an interesting promotional story that I’m saving for later in the week, so stay tuned. Here’s the link to my Amazon page. Please check it out.
