Video Event: Reading from EVERYONE PAYS atBorderlands Books, SF

Sunday, July 24, 2016: I read from EVERYONE PAYS at Borderlands Books in the Mission, still my favorite bookseller this side of the sun. They’re great and have always supported writers, podcasters, podcasting writers, and everything important in the world. Whenever you come through San Francisco stop in, buy books, tell ’em YOUR BOY...

Walter Mosley
“The most important lesson I’ve learned as a writer is that practice of the art is something I must exercise every day. The reason for this constant training is that any idea worth discovering is bigger than my head. The twists and turns, story and plot, characters and character development of a novel cannot be held in a single thought or even in a train of thought. This novel takes up a lot of space and needs room to breathe and evolve.”
Walter Mosley, Twelve Steps Toward Political Revelation

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Seth. It's greatly appreciated. If you love a good mystery, and you have either a Kindle, Nook or iBooks, I encourage you to try a sample of my first novel. It's called FORBIDDEN STEPS and it's getting raves and 5 stars across the board. Check out what folks are saying by clicking on the link below, then scroll downward.

Also, here's the link to my YouTube promo vid.

Enjoy and have a wonderful evening, Ed
