New version of JUST FOLLOW ME

After three years, the rights to JUST FOLLOW ME reverted back to me. To keep it in print, I created a new, sleeker version (trim size is now 5x8). There will also be a new Kindle version very soon. I took this opportunity to update the cover (added blurbs, updated author bio and photo, new font, and better spine), new interior design, as well as adding an essay about the writing of the novel.

Into the Sunset (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:32PM
Description: Wayne Benson doesn't require nursing care. He's not a senior citizen. He isn't even retired. But this healthy 30-year-old bachelor believes the comfortable life of The Sunset, an assisted-living retirement community, would be a soothing alternative to his hectic lifestyle. Everything he desires-gourmet meals, laundry services, camaraderie, tranquility-is available for one all-inclusive monthly fee. The only problem? He isn't the required minimum age of sixty-two. So, he dons theatrical make-up and gray wig to age himself forty years, and is accepted into The Sunset. Will everything go as smoothly as planned? Of course not! His elderly love interest becomes suspicious of his under-cover-of-darkness-only lovemaking, his neighbor wants to go to strip clubs and experiment with Viagra®, the head of security is more interested in extortion than security, and the woman who runs The Sunset may be onto his scheme. Can Wayne survive old age?

Elizabeth Belated Happy new year to you Don!


Books Ring Mah Bell You must enjoy the work... designing kids books. There's a few on your list my son would love! You creative people... I can't draw a stick person and can hardly write a coherent grocery list.


Alicia Don has a lot of great books. If only he'd lend me some...


Jeremy Hi Donald!

Here’s wishing you a nifty New Year filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

-Jeremy :)

P.S.—I’m currently offering autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:
