My best bud Raymond, was the first to buy my book. He bought it through Amazon and also left an excellent review on their site. I wasn’t able to get a picture of Raymond, the book and myself, till last night. Here’s the picture.


He was the first person to touch my book, excluding the packers.



My best friend Raymond

Kay, manages the La Plata Wal-Mart optometrist department and she overheard me putting the soft sell on a customer. She asked me some questions, then made an appointment for me to bring her a book on the fallowing Monday. Me likes!




Suzanne was my latest vampire. When someone takes my blood, I try to hide my nervousness by talking to them. I was giving her the hard sell and after she took all the vials she needed, I gave her a book and came back the next day for the money.




Suzanne the vampire


When I came back, Suzanne asked, ‘Do you have another book with you?”


I said, ”Yes.”


She said, “Good, because Debbie want’s one.”


I said, “Cool!” I went out to the van, got a book for Debbie, then came back in for my picture, money and hug. I walked out with a big smile brought on by the simplest of gratitudes.




It’s been a while since I worked this hard for such a small amount of money. The promotion of the book is really important to me. Eventually my book is going to fall into the hands of someone with the resources to promote it beyond my abilities.


Thank you guys for buying my book.

I’m going to post four photos at a time till I catch up.



Maggie Joyner


Maggie bought my book at Maries Diner in La Plata, MD. and also came out to support me at my first book signing on my birthday, May 20th, at Market Day.


While at the diner, she bought a $60 fundraising ticket from me. It’s for the Christmas in April * Charles County annual Sunset at Mount Aventine gala. On June 10th Christmas in April will officially become Rebuilding Together. The board members are very excited about the change and we hope you will come out and meet us. You can gather with us for tasty refreshments, mingling and a couple of special guest speakers, that should to peak your interest on some current events.



Wayne Wagner


This is my mechanic and neighbor and he purchased my book as soon as he heard that it was published. I’m standing in a hole and he is standing on a cinder block. 😊 Not really.





I asked this attractive lady to take a picture of me and a happy customer and after she took the picture she asked, “Can you tell me about the book?” I’m learning how to be a salesman and shortly after she took the picture, she gave $10 for my book. Very nice lady.



Bruce Sansbury


We also have my good friend Bruce. He helped me on Market Day by handling the money and watching the table while I was away from it. He also sold a book when I was food hunting, so it seems he was perfect for the job.


Thank you guys for buying my book!

President Dr. Bradley M. Gottfried at College of Southern Maryland

College of Southern Maryland’s (CSM) president, Dr. Bradley M. Gottfried, Ph.D., bought my book at a presentation of the Civil War’s battle over the Potomac River. Dr. Bradley has a local radio show called, Southern Maryland’s Perspective and it airs on Sundays at:


7:00am – WKIK-102.9
7:30am – WYRX-97.7
8:00am – WSMD-98.3


And he asked me to be a guest on his show sometime in the near future. Can’t wait, sounds very exciting.





I see Marshon two or three times a week at the La Plata, Starbuck’s. As you can tell he’s a Millennial, which are typically children of us Baby Boomers. He always helps me with computer application questions. My latest lesson was about the Cloud.


Thanks guys for buying my book.

Things I’m interested in: BAM



The first book of poetry, in the series called, ‘Thoughts into Poetry’

I just came from Books-A-Million and my hopes are up. Met with the general manager at the Waldorf, MD book store about them selling my book and having a book signing. My friend Sherrie Nieves initialized the talks, thanks Sherrie.


I will find out in two weeks if they are interested in doing it. If they are, then it will take place in three months. I’m very excited of the possible opportunity.

Two more happy customers. Think I’ll start with the pretty one.



Valerie Grimes


I met Valerie several years ago at the marina where my houseboat is docked. This very nice young lady bought my book and even tipped me $2. How cool is that. She’s also going to help me design a new business card.


She owns and operates a cleaning service. Among the many others venues that she cleans, residential and commercial are at the top of the list.



Al Jackson

I know Al from the La Plata Starbuck’s. He normally sits by himself reading, until I start bugging him. We often talk about writing and other topics that are way above my head. He’s a very smart man and I can learn a lot from him. All I have to do is listen.


Thank you guys for buying my book.
