Michigan Strikes Again

April 3, 2016

If you’re interested in entering a Goodreads giveaway for a free book, and you live in Michigan, then your odds of winning are increased exponentially. I’m not sure what it is about Michigan, but that state always surprises me. Even while traveling through the state during my one-year journey through America in an RV, I found something extra special about Michigan. Whether it was the people we met or the places we navigated through, we left with an unexpected satisfaction. Maybe it was the friendly  people or the friendly police we ran into a couple of times at campgrounds. Maybe it was the Upper Peninsula and our side trip to Mackinac Island. Perhaps it was the beautiful Pictured Rocks, the Soo Locks train ride to Canada, or Lake Huron. This was quite a combination.

Then comes my Goodreads Giveaway. I decided to give away a copy of my three books. My two paranormal books were offered worldwide, and my travel book was offered just to readers in the United States. The paranormal books went to Canada and Michigan. My travel book, Strapped into an American Dream, also went to Michigan. I sent it off today. Amazing odds for Michigan, considering that over 4,300 people entered the contests. The contest ended this week, and the book was mailed today.

Note to Winner: After sealing the envelope, I looked and saw my personalized note on the table. I had to force open one side and slide in the folded note, then tape it shut. Enjoy my books Michigan!

The (RV) Show Must Go On

January 22, 2016

The Northeast CT RV & Camping Show at the CT Convention Center is this weekend and Storm Jonas (brothers) is not going to ruin it! We’re only expecting 1-5 inches of snow in the Hartford area. Hopefully it misses us completely because this is my favorite show of the year. I’ll be speaking and signing copies of my book, Strapped Into An American Dream. Come on out to the show and start thinking about warmer times and travelling by land. I will also be doing a book signing at the Worcester RV Show in the DCU Center in Worcester MA on Sunday,  February 21st from 11-5PM. Come on down and step into one of these American dreams.

Strapped Into A Better CT clip

January 20, 2016

Here is a clip from the Channel 3 website of my Better CT show appearance this afternoon discussing my one year journey through the 48 continental states in an RV. It was a wonderful experience to see the behind the scenes of this television show with Scot Haney and Kara Sundlun moving around the studio from set to set with the cameraman shouting out how much time before each scene goes live. My shot was inside an RV provided by Van’s RV. This is all in preparation for this weekend’s CT RV Show at the CT Convention Center, and hopefully winter storm Jonas pushes out to sea.

2015 RV Show Booksigning

December 17, 2014

It’s not too early to think about camping, and that thought will take us through the long, cold winter. That’s the mindset of RV and camping enthusiasts. That’s why the Northeast Recreational Vehicle & Camping show pulls into town next month on January 24th and 25th. I will be there signing copies of my book, “Strapped Into An American Dream.” Thousands of people pass through the Connecticut Convention Center for this event, and it’s by far the best event for my travel book. There will be more details to come, but if you’re a camping and recreational vehicle enthusiast, then be sure to attend this event, and stop by to say hello. I will say hello back!

Press Release for “Desert Son”

My New Book coming out in February, 2014

October 30, 2013

Do you believe in life after death? Are you interested in out-of-body experiences and past life regression? Reincarnation is the theme of my new fiction book in this paranormal tale. Please see the synopsis below and more details will follow as the new year approaches. From the author of “Strapped Into An American Dream” comes this chilling new book…”Desert Son”:

Carter Spence is a 26 year-old accountant out of Boston who has an out-of-body experience following a car accident that kills his parents.  He views the chaos from above the scene of the accident, then passes through the tunnel and reunites with relatives who have long been dead.  A woman he does not recognize approaches him and says, “Welcome, son.”Her message to him is that he needs to be aware of his true identity and should follow signs that will lead him there. She mentions mountains, but Carter is jolted back into his physical body before she can finish.

After burying his parents, Carter heads west and meets a free-spirit named Brenda, whom he is drawn to on many levels. She becomes his travelling companion and leads him to Boulder, Colorado, and to an old white house of an old man named Martin. Diaries, hypnosis, and past-life regression reveal a bizarre connection between these three. Carter discovers that the truth to his identity can only be found by pursuing the answer to whether he is the reincarnation of his biological father in what is shaping up to be a love affair rekindled beyond the grave.
