Status on my latest Shakespearean Assault

I've finished the second draft of Shakespeare's worst nightmare.  I've taken the characters and the plot from Hamlet and Othello, transported them to Gundarland and turned these tragedies into comedies (and that ain't easy to do).  It's now called Falstaff's Big Gamble.

Hamlet is a dwarf, the crown prince of Denmarko and he has family issues.  His uncle killed Hamlet's father the king, usurped the throne and married his mother.  Not only…

The Zaftans have arrived!

My new novel, Zaftan Entrepreneurs, Book 1 of the Zaftan Trilogy, is now available in print and ebook versions.  My website,,  has links to bookseller sites.  

Four pre-publication reviews are unanimous in praising the novel and all gave it five stars. Some of their comments include, "This story is filled with action, romance, and Quense's trademark unique, satirical wit." and  "Zaftan…

re: space quest games (there were 6 of them in all) - I think they inspired some of the characters in Futurama. They certainly were ahead of their time - I only suggest this because the games may inspire you for your next book. :-)

Hi Hank,

Thanks for the complement, and to your question, I utilized contact data bases that I received from friends who would send me blanket e-mails. I would respond to everyone on the list telling them about my book, I realized a penetration rate of 5-10%. Some of the contact list contained over 3000 e-mail addresses, and all I had to do was to send out one blanket e-mail, its proved to be a very effective, and inexpensive marketing tool.
