Something About Me and My Book:
"The Seeds of Love...and War: Still Shaggin' for a Shillin'" is based on the fact that John Hancock had a tawdry affair with a waterfront tavern owner in 1769 Boston. It is the sequel to "Snug Harbor Tavern: Shaggin' for a Shillin'". As an author, I have a passion for historical fiction. Eight years in naval aviation, combined with a business of conducting seminars, have taught me that an audience needs a fleshed-out story to learn a lesson. Currently I am working on the third volume in this trilogy titled, "Tea, Tyranny & Revolution: Shaggin' for a Musket"

I have been invited to appear on local television, a second time, to present as John Hancock, the sequel to my first novel.

Historical Fiction Authors and Publishers Group

Historical Fiction Group

I have taken the liberty to organize a new "group", dedicated to the historical fiction genre. Each category of writing has particular issues and difficulties and this is no different. Anyone involved in historical fiction, regardless of time or era, is invited to add to the fun, as we wander into the past and deal with the present.

Thank you, William. I do have an editor and have started the process of it all. I'm hopeful to get the developmental back next week and then once I make the necessary changes go to grammer check, etc. with her. If anything changes I will let you know.

I hope your self-pub is going well and that it's been beneficial. I know it's a lot of work.

I'm going to send a fellow Ohioan a friend request!

Thanks again,

Here's my web blog if interested in taking a look.
