Ed Rambeau Thanks for your friend request, JC, which I happily accept. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed


Mitchell Cook Hi, JC!

I just watched the youtube book trailer of your book and thought it was pretty cool. Do you plan on putting your book on Kindle by chance? It's my new favorite toy and I'm buying up tons of books.

I'll still buy hard copies of books in the future, just right now, I've got so much to read (and write) with so little time.

I'm adding this to my "to read" shelf.

Glad to meet you, btw! :)

Jesse Hanson I really appreciate your including me as a goodreads friend, JC. Looks like you read some interesting material. Here's wishing you the best in all your endeavors.
It's interesting that your book has the Dante slant; my novel (a spiritual allegory) has some scenes describing a variety of hellish experiences also. Hope you'll have a look at it.
Namaste, jesse
