Pictures of my Library Presentation

Gave my talk on Self-Publishing Your Book for $0 again, this time at the library in Ironton, OH on the evening of Jan 17. Had an interesting connector issue and ended up having to directly connect my cable to the ceiling mounted projector. Thus, the strange set up with my computer sitting on a chair on top of a table. Nevertheless, the presentation went on successfully.


Upcoming Appearance


I’ll be giving this FREE presentation in Ironton, OH on Thursday, January 17. If you’re interested in getting a book published without spending a lot of time and/or money in the process, I think you’ll find this information quite valuable.

HPD Won’t Be Released Until Next Year!


Due to a variety of what I think are good reasons, including its entry into an award contest, I’ve decided not to release “HPD” this year. Of course, this will give me more time to fiddle with it and hopefully make it even better, thus benefiting my faithful readers. Sorry everyone, but it now looks like it will be released around May of 2019.

Granddaughter Bowling Birthday Party


This past weekend we had a 3rd birthday party for our granddaughter Evie (the little girl with the birthday cake shirt) at a local bowling alley. While there we got a chance to get a group photo taken of many of the members of my family. The lady on my left is my wife Gloria. So here’s a chance for you to see what my family looks like!
