So Far, So Good, So Where Did I Leave Those Wintergreen Life Savors?

Perhaps one of my characters took them. Who knows? Anyway, thanks to the Writing Gods racing Big Wheels with colored tassels floating from the handgrips the "Ozarium" revision is still moving forward. As much as I wish to have it revised and completed by Christmas, I'm not so sure it'll happen at this point. I can't rush this. It would not be wise. Last time I allowed it to undergo the publishi...

Thanks for inquiring, Carl! If you like to read ebooks, please check out SECTORS. It's the start of a series I've begun. SECTORS is a dark world full of robots, werewolves , vampires, zombies, and a cannibal.

I am hoping to bring Twilight Zone type settings in the books. :)

RAISING RILEY and DARK PLACES OF REST are free to reads and I think I have included the links on my page. If you have trouble, let me know..

You can find my other books on AMAZON.COM, if you wish.

Take care,

Brick
