Senseless Confidential is written by a guy who obviously knows how to write a book …absolutely hysterical…. The characters are believable, full of human flaws and frailty. —Holly Bernabe; Portland, OR

“[While] searching for something to freshen the Elwood, Oregon Facebook page, I ran across this book and couldn’t believe I hadn’t ever heard of it. [I] immediately purchased and read it, in one sitting; couldn’t put it down. Fun, fun, fun, fun read! We are proud of our gun-toting backwoods community and Elwood is a real place. And the events of the book–although fiction–could have seriously happened (or at least most of them). Can’t wait for the movie! I hope it is actually filmed in Elwood!” —Rhonda; Elwood, OR

You can find Senseless Confidential at Amazon and Smashwords. Remember, for a good time this summer, Get Senseless!

Feeling the love: Is she my biggest fan?

The writer's heart

A heartwarming response

Nothing warms a writer’s heart more than hearing how much a reader enjoyed his or her storytelling. I daresay most of us are not in this for the money (and if we are, we’d better have a good Plan B), so good reviews are the currency in which we really get paid. Word-of-mouth referrals are also the most effective means to get our work discovered. That’s why it’s always such a pleasure to get such reader comments as this one:

“I bought the book for my workmate…. Before I gave it to her I had to read it and I found it so exhilarating that I sped through it! I have told at least 5 people about it so I need to get more books to share because this one was a life-changer for me …it was über enlightening! I am so happy that you wrote this book and can’t wait to read your others. …I may be your biggest fan!”

So, is she going to be my biggest fan? We’ll see. If you haven’t checked out Senseless Confidential yet, I dare you to challenge her to that title! The official release date is August 1, but followers of my blog can get a discount code for a prerelease copy, either print or digital, just by leaving a comment anywhere on the blog.
