4-12-13 WENDIGO is published on Amazon and Kindle.
Here's a picture of me, Diane and Jackie at her commissioning formal in Fort Benning Georgia.
WENDIGO is in the final edlit and will be released on Amazon Books in print and Kindle next month. It's the second in the Shadow Fletcher series (the first is Wolfwraith, published by Damnation Books.)
I'll be in Georgia most of next week. My daughter, Jacquelyn, is being commissioned as second lieutenant, US Army, and Diane and I will be attending the military ball that goes along with the ceremony. I'll be picking up my rental tux today and we're flying down on Tuesday. I'll post a picture of me in tux, something rarely seen.
3-16-13 Happy Saint Patrick's Day.
I've just learned that J Alan Erwin is stepping down as editor of Sam's Dot Publishing. I don't know if my SPACEMONKEY ADVENTURES will be published by Sam's Dot. If not, I'll self publish it since all the stories and editing are ready to go--just need a cover. Any monkey artists out there? (You don't have to be a monkey, just draw them.) Now I'll go have a drink or two in honor of Saint Patrick.
3-15-13 Just now got photos from the Museum of the Albemarle - more on TMI About John page.
3-10-13 I'm going to be making some changes to my site over the next few days, so excuse any minor glitches.
3-9-13 Last month, Black History Month, I was a guest lecturer at the Museum of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City, NC, where I did a power point presentation for 4th and 5th graders. I discussed my book, Boy in Chains, a bit, but mostly told and showed how slaves lived in the 19th century, what they wore, what they ate, where they obtained water, etc.
I was a bit nervous talking to an auditorium full of people, but soon got over it. I did the presentation about 6 times and it was a great success. The kids (and the teachers) really enjoyed it. The second day, Saturday, was for adults and I was not a presenter. Diane and I met a lot of really nice people and I sold quite a few books. Also, the number of visitors to this site has jumped tremendously.
