Waiting and hoping

Posted: July 23, 2013 in blog entries

I’ve received the first 20 copies of Acid and The Coven of the Spring from my publisher, Bruce Moran of Total Recall, Inc. To say I am excited is to understate my feelings badly. I’ve had a lot of success in athletics, in teaching, in Acting and Directing, designing sets and lighting. Still, seeing my own books in print is exhilarating to say the least.
I’ve had one other summer with this much excitement. Usually, toward the end of August, I would find myself on a chaise lounge on the back deck, alcoholic stimulant in hand, watching the airplanes flying over my Palatine, IL house on their way to O’Hare. I would think about where the people on the place were coming from, were they coming to Chicago on business or vacation, who would be meeting them, etc. I would also like the idea of maybe boarding one of those planes not arriving at O’Hare, but rather going to Nova Scotia for a hunt for the mysterious treasure of Oak Island; to Washington, North Carolina, in search of Blackbeard’s lost horde; to search Central Mexico for the lost treasure of the Seven Cities of Cibola; to seek the treasure of Henry Morgan who stole the solid gold statue of the Virgin from a raid on Panama City in 1600 and Something, which has never been recovered. Ah the dreams of the creative person.
The day is almost here–two of my books will shortly be available. Watch for them and watch for me. If you want me to come to your Town, your library, your fraternal organization, or what ever else, will you please let me know?
