E-books and Book Signing!

And now the launch is finally complete! The e-book conversion is done and the first book in the Harmonic Wars series is officially available on iBooks, Kindle and Nook. Look for my SciFi story "Guardians of the Crystal Skulls" available now! If you've read my book and like it, I would really appreciate your feedback/recommendations on Amazon, iBooks or Nook. If you don't like it, just send me an email.  (:-D)
This weekend I met up with some family and friends to practice my presentation and have a book signing in my home town of Georgetown, Texas at the Public Library. I had a great time catching up with old friends and family that I had not seen in nearly 30 years. Guess that means that I'm getting old! :-)

The Library was a great facility. Here I am setting up my slide show on the overhead. The room could seat 200 people, had a huge screen that dropped down out of the ceiling in front of a good dry erase board. It would have been a great room for student lectures. They had another room set up where you could have the audience sitting at tables too. We didn't expect to fill the room since this was just some family and friends to sit and listen to me practice. Had a great time and now I have a good idea of what it takes to set up and present. Much more work than I envisioned, but SO much fun.Here are some pictures of Dad and I setting up the table and banner. And people wonder where I get my sense of humor! By the way, my mother is taking the pictures. It is so great to have a wonderful family to help give support.

Here are some of my family and life long friends starting to show up. Here is my "Other Mom" Wanda Harris sitting beside my cousins Junior and Claudia Doerfler. When I was growing up if I wasn't at Michael Harris' house, then he was at mine. Unless we had snuck off to the river!

Quint and Cheryl Schneider are some of the oldest and dearest friends I can remember.

These are some of the best childhood friends that anyone can have. We played guitar in our church youth group and hung out together outside of church sponsored activities as well. It's hard to find true friends like this, and a treasure to be able to reconnect after so many years. It was a huge surprise when LisaVan Antwerp-Rangel and her husband Max drove up from Houston. This is Lisa with Quint and I. I think this may be one of the only pictures of all three of us, and not one guitar! It felt funny without our guitars, even after all these years. I certainly felt truly blessed.

If you have not had a chance to check out my book, please do. You can find it on Amazon/Kindle, Nook and iBooks in addition to the 3L Publishing web site. If you purchase it through the link below, I get a bigger percentage...just saying!  ;-)

So Begins a Multi-Dimensional War for Control of the Universe

For thousands of years the peaceful Balsarius lived in fear of the G`Alad Warrior Guild that had destroyed the Masu`ri settlement at the beginning of the Harmonic Wars, over 12,000 years ago. Led by the Shihan Marcus Kahn, the Balsarius fought Admiral Ares and the G`Alad to a stalemate. Now, Ares and the G`Alad have renewed their vain search for the last Pyraportal. This self-energized pyramid-shaped portal is the last thing standing between the Balsarius and certain destruction.

Badly out numbered and outgunned, the Balsarius enlisted the empathic Mayan Grand Council to help provide balance in the Harmonic Wars. Armed with newly acquired crystal skulls and Anti-Grav Suits, 13 beautifully ageless women help Shihan battle against the G`Alad’s continuing efforts for control of the galaxy. But evil walks in the Land of Dreams and threatens to throw the balance back in favor of evil. The Guardian Alana Akholay has seen strange shadows roaming around in the dangerous Land of Dreams. Now she must help Queen Ana’ka protect her great-great grandson Arturo from the wickedness that threatens to consume him.

Harmonic Wars is a story of Good vs. Evil locked in a multi-dimensional war for the ultimate control of the universe. Unravel the mysteries of the power of empaths who can project their emotions with devastating effect in this new SciFi thriller series Harmonic Wars!

Preparation for my Hometown Book Signing

I went to my hometown of Georgetown, Texas yesterday to check out the Library and set up some flyers for the book signing on this coming Saturday. While I was in town I stopped by the Williamson County Sun paper and met with the Publisher Clark Thurmond and scored a fantastic interview with Features Editor Michael Freeman. Look for the article in this Sunday's paper which will be on the newsstands on Friday.

The Georgetown Library is a beautiful facility, and while they are not officially promoting my book, I am most honored that they have helped me out as much as they have. I will be in the Hewlett Room on the second floor. If you are not busy on August 29th from 1-4, stop by and say hello and listen to a short presentation on the Great Pyramid of Giza, and the writing and publishing process for new authors.

I can't wait...this is going to be great!

Join us on the official Launch of Harmonic Wars!

For those of you who have been following my journey to become an author, this Thursday, August 20th will be the official launch of "Harmonic Wars: Guardians of the Crystal Skulls" and I will be doing it during my interview with John B Wells Caravan to Midnight! Tune in for some clues to the motivation for this series and some insight to this epic story of good vs evil locked in a war for thousands of years. I like to think of this book as "Star Wars" meets "Game of Thrones" with

out the incest.

The book will be available at Amazon at that time with the e-book conversion soon to follow as that take a little longer to gear up. Your support for independent authors is greatly appreciated, and if you purchase the book through then I get a much better share of my work, instead of Industry. :-)
If you like Ancient Aliens, you will appreciate this new slant on the genre.

Here is the link to Caravan to Midnight:

Please keep in touch with me at the following social media sites!

Here is a picture of the Gates of Paradise that I talked about in the interview. Really cool stuff!
