Writing Again!

Life has presented me with new insights and new inspiration. I'm happy to inform you that I'm working on the next motivational book, so stay tuned and keep those comments coming. Since my last blog, I got married, I've been writing articles, promoting concerts & events, managing the radio station (WHOV), doing play by play announcing for the HU basketball team and setting up motivational events for the rest of this year. Creative inspiration comes and it goes. For me it's kind like a happy puppy.

A New Frontier

Writing a book has been an experience. This journey is a joyous whole new world, a lot of work and a new beginning. Sometimes the journey is tough and new frontiers yet exciting are challenging. But I am determined to see that those who need wisdom and guidance get to read what has been given to me for you. "Wisdom From The Jazzman" is now available everywhere via all platforms. I'm working on the audio book and a video that explains in even more detail what this journey is all about.

January Is Finally Here!

Well Family,
Outside of fighting this terrible flu bug and streph throat for the past few days, so far this has been a focused entrance into the new year for me thus far. Don;'t worry, I'm feeling better than a few days ago. (smile) This flu bug is fierce! After months of anticipation, January 2013 is finally here and "Wisdom From The Jazzman" books are being placed daily in booksellers all over the world and is available on Kindle and Nook as we speak. If your local book store doesn't have it, have them contact Koehler Publishing or Morgan James Publishing to get some in stock.

The 1st Books Have Arrived

Well family it won't be long now before the autographed pre-sale copies are mailed to those of you who ordered them. This week I got a few books for review before ordering the bulk copies for distribution to those of you who supported me with pre-orders. They will soon be on their way to you along with the free Smooth Jazz CD gift for your patience.
Now I've got to get the free Smooth Jazz CD's made, mailing labels, order packaging and more books for delivery to you. As promised it won't be long.

Books Will Be On The Way Soon From The Printer!

    I just got the word yesterday as the wind slammed against my house from my publisher John Koehler that my initial offering of "Wisdom From The Jazzman" books will be ready for shipment to me in 10 to 15 days.
    To those of you who were faithful supporters and bought pre-sale copies w/the FREE "Smooth Jazz" CD offer, it won't be long now before you see both in the mail. When you receive your copies I welcome your comments both here and on Facebook!

Patience Has Become My Friend- It Won't Be Long

Patience has truly become a vurtue these days. If you log on to my Facebook page weekly, you will see all the updates on the pre-sale copy release progress. It has been delayed a bit longer than I expected because we all (the publishers, editors, proof readers, publicist, etc) wanted it to be just right and a true reflection of how I wanted it to be received. Thus taking another extremely close review of the final layout.
Once its out there it's out there and I can't take it back, thus the close attention to detail before release which I am thankful for.
