I sincerely hope you are staying safe during these trying times, and have avoided as much difficulty as possible. I appreciate all the support of my writing endeavors, and hope to come out with the next episode sometime this year.

Pandemic Support

It is amazing to see so many people helping each other, and small businesses doing what they can to support their employees. There is a lot of good going on at this time. It’s my sincere hope that even after this pandemic fades (to where we can resume somewhat normal lives) we can maintain our support for our neighbors and those less fortunate. A great society is one that places its highest values on its people. Everything else is secondary and in support of that. You may call me naive, and dreaming, but without dreams there is no growth. There is no reaching for what some would consider unattainable, until you attain it. Consider what this one man inspired.

Art Walk Special

Art Walk Special Friday 4/7

Yes, I’ll be at the Gulfport Art Walk again this Friday night with author Bria Burton. There will be freebies as well as specials on my books and books by other offers as well in the Soul Attitude Press stable of authors. We’re located between 29th Ave S and 30th Ave S on the east side, in front of Yummy’s (or thereabouts) and across the street from Backfin Blue Cafe. Just south of Red Hot Tiki. In fact, we’re the 3rd booth in from the library on that side, so we’re up near the end!

This is a great little event with booths on both sides of the main drag down Gulfport from the library to the waterfront. They have wonderful restaurants and many small vendors like ourselves, offering a plethora of items for you.

Open from 6-10pm, if it’s not too windy it should be a lot of fun. (If it is, it will be fun AND challenging!)

I’m still working, slowly, on the next episode in the saga. But if you haven’t picked up one of the first 3 books, now would be a great time to do so.

Be a Part of the Story

As always, I offer anyone who’s interested a part in the story. They can appear as themselves (with whatever role they’d like – good/bad), and for those in school (and not yet adults), I will use your first name only.

Others at our Art Walk booth

Soul Attitude Press, my publisher, will be staffing the booth and also offering titles from other authors. From the funny, rascally grandpa Tic Rawghers, who’s also working on another one of his Grandpa’s Guides books, John Rehg, author of several spiritually-based books, and the aforementioned Bria Burton, also with an eclectic mix of titles.

We always have a good time at our booth. We are open to discussing whatever topics come up, from art to zombies. Hey, maybe we’ll have 5 minute windows on topics beginning with each letter of the alphabet. Interesting?

We hope to see you there! Even if it’s just to wave as you pass by, we’ll be happy to wave back.

Art Walk Zombie Specials

Art Walk Zombie Specials Saturday, Dec 17 in Gulfport

I’ll be at a booth at the Gulfport Art Walk with authors Bria Burton, Grandpa Tic , and John Rehg on Saturday, Dec 17, from 6-10pm, with some specials just in time for the holiday gift-giving. Or, if you have all your presents, stop by and chat about anything and pick up a few freebies.

These are always fun events, with great food from the restaurants in the city of Gulfport, music, and of course the street vendors. Weather is forecast to be excellent, and we’ll be just up from the Mangia restaurant.

You may wonder, JG, where’s the next zombie episode? When’s book 4 coming out? Both good questions, which I’ll be happy to answer at the art walk! I might just need you to be in the story!

Bria has also set up a Facebook event, so you can hop on there as well and say hi.

Times Festival of Reading 11-12-16

Tampa Bay Times Festival of Reading

Saturday, 11/12/16, I will be at the Festival with some fellow authors in booth H7. It would be great to see everyone, and I will have some ‘Black Friday-Saturday deals’ to help you prepare for the upcoming season.

In addition to the myriad of books we’ll have at our booth, you’ll be able to see and hear famous authors, poets, and journalists, like Michael Connelly, Peter Meinke, Tim Dorsey, and Lisa Unger, to name just a few.

One presentation not to miss would be Roy Peter Clark’s. He puts on a great show to get across his points on writing. I still remember one he gave eight years ago!

Another special presentation might be Cheryl Hollon’s. A former FWA member who now has a multi-book publishing deal and several mysteries out, she would be a great resource for information on what the industry is like to someone getting their first books out.

I and my fellow authors hope to see you there!
