I recently began working on my third book, “Zombie Nights” and decided I probably need to have an authors page at Amazon. Zombie Nights is a look back on two nights in 1977 where I went without sleep to cover the making of Dawn of The Dead at Monroeville Mall outside of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

As I walked down the lane with my dog Shadow on October 1, 2012 I began to think about what I wanted to do in retirement besides travel,have fun and take pictures. Since I was a child and read Robert Louis Stevenson I thought that some day I would write a book. Shadow and I walked three miles that day and I began to think of conversations I had with my friend Kip about dream journals. By the time i got home I had half an outline in my head and sat down at the computer and wrote all day. When my wife came home from teaching High School school she asked about what I did today and I told her I started my novel. After chuckling she realized I was serious.
By July 4th 2013. The book had 50,000 words and was almost 200 pages. I thought I was done and gave it to Hinda Burke to read. Somehow she got through it and actually liked it. She gave me notes and I began to write again. By the fall of 2013 Hinda got the novel which was now close to 300 pages and had 80,000 words. She edited the book and added some more character development. The novel then went through two more edits and finally was copy edited by my friend Annie Siebert. So after 25 months of work and three editors DreamMap is finally finished. It wouldn’t be as good as it is without the help of Hinda Burke,Susan Weiss, Jess Brazas and Annie Siebert. Thanks for helping me with my Dream!
DreamMap has been approved for publication by Amazon and I have ordered proof copies for my reader panel. I hope to have it available and for sale by September 1st. It will be available in paperback and a Kindle edition through Amazon. By the time it is available it will have taken two years and four revisions. It is by far the longest creative project I have ever been involved in. I have to thank Hinda Burke, my soulmate and editor for helping with this novel and translating it in to actual english rather than the weird stuff I write down.
My book has been available for about one year now and sales have been underwhelming which is kind of understandable for a personal publication like this. In any case it is still on Amazon, “A Hundred Places I Went To Before I Died” (ISBN/EAN13: 1475261535 / 9781475261530.) and available for $25 with free shipping. To get your copy, click here.
