From the Author
I've produced my writing as a small press alternative publisher since the early 1980's, I gained my first modest commercial success in the 90's but retired from active promotion to raise a child and work a day job. I wrote late at night and circulated the writing among friends and strangers-I-met for fifteen years, until I morphed into an empty nester.
I now have four books available online in print and eBook format, the fifth due out in March 2012 and a sixth in May. All told, there will be twelve books considered The Private Publications to be completed in 2013.
The Lent Hand is all-age narrative fiction strongly voiced which represents half of the collection. Also available: Joody (A Case Study in Post Dramatic Stress Disorder). Coming Spring 2012: Stainless Mary (Finding My Finitude).
The other half are Bedside Readers for the Adult Mind, sexotic and counterculture; not suitable for some. Sweet Talkers (Words from the Mouth of a Pay-to-Say Girl); The Lunarium (One man's memories of the watchers and the watched) and Stoner with a boner (It's a Long Story).
Self-publishing is a perfect fit for me; I let Amazon and CreateSpace do the retailing and I do the designing. I've always PRODUCED my work and encourage others to do the same, let it fly!
