Thursday – A Little Personal – A call for Volunteers


“Hey, Boss.”

“Yes, Lucy?”

“Aren’t you releasing a book on October 1st?”

“Yes, I am.”

“Don’t you think it is time to ask for some help?”

“So stand aside and I’ll make a call for volunteers.”

Circumstances of Childhood

Circumstances of Childhood

I will be launching Circumstances of Childhood, Β a fictional family life story, with a traditional blog tour. The material will be ready for publication and just needs a copy and paste. The scheduled launch is October 1st. and the material will get to you a week before. Β If you would like to participate please send an e-mail to me at:

Here is the blurb.

When a former pro football star and broadcaster, now a Wall Street maven is accused of insider trading, will he be able to prove his innocence and expose those who are guilty?

Greg and his boyhood pal dreamed of big success in professional football and then later in business. Greg was the only one to live the dream. Now the founder of an investment fund Greg is faced with a routine audit finding by the SEC. The audit points to irregularities and all the tracks lead to Greg. The justice department hits him with an indictment of 23 counts of fraud, money laundering, and insider trading. His firm goes bust, and Greg is on his own.

His best friend knows he is innocent but has been ordered under penalty of eternal damnation not to help.

If you enjoy stories of riches to rags, redemption, brotherly love, and a little of the paranormal, Circumstance of Childhood will keep you riveted.

Thank you.


“Perfect, John.”


“Nice Job, Pop.”
