SFR Brigade Holiday Showcase, day 1

 The year in review

Day two post
Day three post
Day four post

From a personal point of view, 2016 was a year to forget. Dental work that interfered with my oboe playing and jeopardized my hold on first-chair status. Health issues for both my wife and myself.  And then of course the monumentally unpleasant presidential campaign.

From a professional perspective, though, 2016 was very productive.  I had three new books come out, tied for the most ever, and I signed a contract for another that will be out next year.

Over the next few days I’ll be showcasing each book, so stop by each day to qualify for a free book.

  • Escapee, released April
    A science fiction retelling of the classic movie, The African Queen
  • Future Love, released July
    A collection of stories. Like all my work, there’s plenty of romance and humor.
  • Newborn, released November

    I agree about 2016. Love your understatement about the prez campaign. I hope 2017 is better for all of us.

    1. That statement was as political as I’ll allow myself to get here. Talking politics online is akin to a suicide wish, IMHO.

  2. Ed-I finally got a chance to read the first two books of your Alien Contact For series. LOVED them. Third book is on my post-Christmas Amazon Gift Card Purchases list. Excited to read it!

    Hope 2017 brings you both good health and much happiness. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Lea. This served as a reminder to write a review for book 2 of your series, Salvation. Enjoyed it a lot!

  3. 2016 was a very tough year indeed. Wishing you health and happiness in 2017. And writing, los of writing.
