Just finished my first round of edits for my new novel, Panhandlers. Don’t have a confirmed release date yet, but I’m thinking maybe September 2018. It will be published by the same publisher as Native Moments, Waldorf Publishing. I will be working on getting a book cover soon to help with early promotions. As the title suggests, the setting is the Florida Panhandle and the … Continue reading Panhandlers, a novel
I’ve been on a Bill Hicks bender recently. Dude may have been a prophet. Dead at only 32 years old. Amazing insight at such a young age. But as he said, “It’s Just a Ride.” The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real, because that’s how powerful our minds are. And … Continue reading It’s Just a Ride

I would include a few of my favorites: What We … Continue reading The Short-Story Cycle

In one month Native Moments will be released. Having made that switch from writer to salesman is strange, but if I want to continue to play the role of the writer, books have to sell. And with hundreds of thousands of books coming out every year, there is no other way to get noticed but through shameless self-promotion.

Hate to promote drinking especially when it has had such a negative impact on so many lives. But could it have possibly extended Hemingway’s life and art?

Regardless, alcohol played an important … Continue reading How to drink like Hemingway
