Year-End Report on my Fiction.

As 2015 closes, you may be interested in where things stand with regard to my fiction.

Amazon is the measure of how well each of my books is doing, although they are also for sale in half a dozen bookstores in upstate New York and on Barnes & Noble, iTune and Kozo websites. Here are my Amazon numbers:

House Divided, which was introduced at the end of January 205, has received 22 reviews, earning an average 4.5 stars. It is ranked #1,210 in the Kindle terrorism category.

The book with the highest review average is my suspense novel, Last Stop on Desolation Ridge. Reviewers found it worth 4.8 stars.

The Expendable Man, my first novel, has received the most reviews at 24 which average out at a stellar 4.6 stars. It’s rank in Kindle political thrillers is a nice 2,279.

The book with the third most reviews is Making the Grade, which has 21 reviews and ranks in “women sleuths” at 8,529.

In the Game, a police procedural like Making the Grade, ranks 6,796 in Kindle police procedurals.

Other News

The Expendable Man will be available on the Kindle for only $0.99 from January 13 thru January 20. If you haven’t read it, here’s your chance. It’s also available in print right now for less than $5.00.

I’ll be doing a reading in February for The Cream Literary Alliance in West Palm Beach.

In addition to writing novels, I enjoy writing reviews of some of the books I’ve read as a way to help others decide what to read. If you’d like to see my reviews, follow me on Goodreads ( It’s free and is a great way to keep track of what you and your friends are reading.


That’s the working title of my sixth novel which is currently in the hands of several “beta” readers. What does MCmMI stand for? Manchurian Candidate meets Mission Impossible. As you might have guessed, it’s another political thriller. As far as the title is concerned, I’m hoping one of my readers will be able to suggest a great title because I haven’t been able to come up with one.

The fact that MCmMI is in the hands of beta readers means I’m about half way through the revision process. When can you expect to see a copy available? That depends on a lot of factors so I won’t make any promises other than to say I’ll keep you posted.

Happy New Year one and all and keep on reading.
