Launch Day!

For launch day for my debut novel, The Boulevard Monster, I wanted to give a little behind the scenes look at the cover creation. Here’s the preliminary sketch Ben Baldwin did after Pete and I discussed ideas. I think it looks superb. And what he did with it afterwards…wow.                                                                                                                                 The digital version of the book is available on Amazon now, but they’re lagging behind on getting the print version up there. I’ll post an update once it’s available, which will hopefully be later today. Here are the links:

Tuesday Top Five (3/28/17)


This week’s topic is sitcoms. Tricia and I have lived together for nearly twenty years and were talking about our favorite sitcoms. And by favorite we meant ones that you’ll watch reruns on over and over; just to have them on in the background while doing something else is comforting, like a warm blanket on a cold day. So here are my top five favorite sitcoms in no particular order.

  1. That 70s Show
  2. Seinfeld
  3. Big Bang Theory
  4. The Middle
  5. Grounded For Life

Honorable Mentions: Three’s Company, Modern Family, Life in Pieces, Will and Grace, I Love Lucy, and Frasier
