Pear Tree February 2020

DSCF4690

“Be (Extra)Ordinary: Ten Ways To Become Your Own Hero” sighting!!

At Barnes & Noble, Clark, New Jersey! 

“A writer never has a vacation. For a writer life consists of either writing or thinking about writing.” — Eugene Ionesco 

It’s so true that the writer’s mind is always going; even during a leisurely trip to the bookstore! Look what I found! Many copies of my latest book “Be (Extra)Ordinary: Ten Ways to Become Your Own Hero” right in a local Barnes & Noble! Hell, if I knew there would be a photo op, I would have brushed my hair! But here I am, in my laid back glory, pleasantly surprised!

Wishing all of you a loving February!

Pear Tree — August 2019

DSCF3928During a hot summer, ignite your creative passion by calling Pear Tree today! 

I just returned from a trip and am happy to be going on another one soon! Summer has been super; filled with love, friendships, sun, and music. Yet, there’s always time to help people write their books! Is book writing a passion of yours? If so, contact me for a free consult. Let’s work together and help you get your book published! If we start this summer, you may have your work published by Christmas!

Recently, Next Century Publishing, who published my first two books, “On the Guest List: Adventures of a Music Journalist” and “Love Cats” folded. That means both books are out of print. The good news is, I’m currently shopping “Love Cats” to publish a second edition! “Love Cats” has been a very hot item lately. The Amazon stats jacked up, and I’ve been getting phone calls, “WHERE CAN I GET THE BOOK?”

Unless you want to pay a high amount of money for it, hang tight, because I’m determined to get a second edition out. AND, as always, portions of proceeds will go to various animal groups. By the next edition of Pear Tree, I may have an answer!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Do you want to be a part of the Pear Tree High-Five Tribe and make your dreams come true?  Would you like to book a program, or get help writing your book (or blog or Facebook page)?
