Book Description

Wolfgang's Revenge is the story of a man, a woman, and a dog that neither of them deserved.

This book is suitable for older teens and adults of all ages, but is intended for a mainstream adult audience. There are some mild adult themes and occasional coarse language, but no explicit sexual or violent content.

Wolfgang's Revenge was written in the mid-1990s and submitted to traditional publishers who rejected it because the author was unknown and the publishing business was busy with Tom Clancy, John Grisham and others who were popular at the time. I can only tell you that I have a rejection letter from a major New York publisher's editor who told me, "If you were a known author, I'd publish this book in a heartbeat."

Thanks to Amazon and Kindle, I can now publish it myself.

The big difference between this story and all the others is that, in this case, the dog wins in the end. There's a happy ending waiting for you just over 103,600 words away.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"Wolfgang's Revenge," a story based on some real people and a few imagined situations, was my first novel.  The second, "The Boys Who Could Fly," is a first-person narrative written from the point of view of eleven-year old Andy Talbot, the son of a Navy pilot killed in Vietnam.  The two are very different stories, written for different reasons, but stem from my lifelong love of books.
The ability of Kindle authors to attract readers depends in large part on the number of reviews posted by readers.  Please take the time to post a review.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Goes Around- Comes Around: Wolfgang's Revenge September 24, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mostly character driven, this story revolves around psychologist "Dr. Bart", who really doesn't want to "do" therapy (but is perfectly willing to parlay his sheepskin into media, money, fame and women), and who seriously needs some therapy of his own. His misadventures are many...and ultimately lead to a tangled tale of two women, an accident, blindness, a dog with connections, a dark secret, a book and T.V. documentary deal, an emergency at sea, and a healthy dose of what goes around comes around. Fast paced, and engaging...the story swept me along with lots of laughter, some exciting apprehension, a tear or two, and plenty of recognition of the human (and canine) condition.

Howard Tillison has a writing style that flows easily and naturally, and the ability to create characters that connect with the reader. Most importantly, he is able to spin a really good yarn that keeps the pages turning until the very end. Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story...not the writing style I like October 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good story about a dog whose circumstances are in the control of those who do not fully understand him. I liked the story though the writing style was not really to my liking. I stuck with it to the end because the author really made me like the dog.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever story December 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book. I wish Bart would have redeemed himself, but such a transformation would likely strain credulity. The suicide of Bart 's patient was not leaked by Sandy. WHY? Also, the back story on the truck driver was a little much given his relative insignificance. A little heavy on the nautical talk at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Narcissist and His Dog July 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of this author's well-crafted, mischievous stories. Howard M. Tillison has fun, and his readers are in for a trip.

I highly recommend Wolfgang's Revenge for the reader who would like to take a look at the motivations and resultant chaos of a narcissistic psychologist and his dog. How this author knows the thoughts of a dog or a narcissistic psychologist, I don't know, but I'm convinced that he somehow, very well knows. The story is written with a light touch, but it is perceptive and revealing and surprisingly, not without some instructional value.

The book is perfect to read while sipping iced tea on the patio.

More About the Author

Howard M. Tillison was born in Atlanta, Georgia and lived in Woodstock, GA, Birmingham, Alabama, Spartanburg, South Carolina and Chattanooga, Tennessee. He attended regular public schools in all four states, frequently finding himself in the "new boy" role during his formative years as his father, a railroad man, was transferred from place to place. Howard showed an early talent for writing, winning frequent recognition, as well as nurturing the musical talent inherited from his grandmother. His first "W-2" job was as a banjo player in Shakey's Pizza Parlor in Chattanooga, Tennessee during his Junior and Senior years at Brainerd High School. He sang the lead role in the Senior Play, George Gershwin's "Of Thee I Sing," and performed in variety shows as well as helping to build sets and manage the stage.

Howard was selected for two full academic scholarships in his Senior year, and elected to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology to pursue his other dreams of flying and performing research and development in aviation.

Upon graduation from Georgia Tech, Howard was commissioned an Ensign in the United States Navy and served "eleven years, seven months and seventeen fun-filled days" as a helicopter pilot. During his career in the Navy, he received a citation for the rescue of a civilian boating accident victim, flew a score of medical evacuation missions to transport premature babies from rural locations to a neo-natal intensive care center in Pensacola, Florida, and survived a tragic accident, caused by a mechanical failure, which took the lives of two other crewman. He also led an eleven man helicopter detachment providing support for hydrographic survey operations around the island of Hispaniola, primarily in the waters off the nation of Haiti, and contributed to the development of new methods of delivering and extracting people and equipment from shore sites without the need to clear large areas of forest to provide a landing zone. His last assignment in the Navy was on the staff of the U. S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, where he learned to sail and began writing his first novel. Following his discharge from the Navy, Howard worked in several civilian research and development positions benefiting the U. S. Navy, Naval Aviation and the United States Marine Corps.

During a brief stop in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Howard completed "Wolfgang's Revenge," his first novel (set in New York, New England and the waters surrounding Newport, RI), and "The Boys Who Could Fly" in addition to building a log cabin, with his own hands, which still serves as a vacation retreat. He also received recognition for a prize-winning short story, "Literature By The Pound," published in the journal, "Spilled Ink," during the Steamboat years.

Howard and his wife Diane, his high school sweetheart, live in Ooltewah, Tennessee with their four rescued dogs and five rescued cats. His favorite quote is, "We're not trying to save the whole world; just the cute parts."

Howard has several projects in work, and hopes to devote his efforts full-time to writing books, as well as composing, performing, recording and distributing original music with his band, "The Red Hot Tyrannophonic Bunny Dogs," by the end of 2012. He has lived in ten different states, from California to Rhode Island, Colorado, Virginia, Maryland and Florida in addition to the ones mentioned above, and has moved state-to-state fourteen times. The wealth of experience and the familiarity with people gathered along the way has contributed to each of his books (those published on Kindle, and the ones still in work) by inspiring characters, situations, and events which are unique, yet believable, because most readers will recognize someone they already know in Howard's books.
