publish a romance novel
I'm Halfway There

I’ve written the rough draft of a romantic comedy but it’s been sitting on my computer’s hard drive since 2004. I’m not sure what holds me back from getting this published as I really love the overall story. Jenna, the protagonist, is one of my favorite characters from all of my writings.

I need to get this cleaned up and published and let people decide whether this thing is worth reading or not.

Maybe I’ll post an excerpt or two here. :-)

Almost There

I have uploaded the document and cover PDFs and I’m waiting on news from the publisher. If all goes well, though, this book should be available for sale within two weeks.



Develop MSI (Multiple Streams of Income) (read all 2 entries…)
Surprise Endings

My first step toward multiple streams of income involves a project I’ve been working on formally for two years now, but whose roots go much, much farther back.

Today, September 16, 2009, my book, Surprise Endings, was published and available for sale on line.

I’ve worked very had on this project and I’m confident that you will be satisfied with the quality and content of the final result.
