Can an old journalist and marketing consultant learn new tricks?
I wondered that in 2014 when I set out to try my hand at writing long-form fiction, i.e., books.
I’m still wondering today, but I’ve finished one book — a memoir of my time in Southeast Asia during the Viet Nam war years, 1970-1972. I called it HOTEL CONSTELLATION: Notes on America’s Secret War in Laos. You can buy the paperback on Amazon (get the paperback and the ebook is free) and the ebook on Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Scribed, Smashwords and a whole lot of other places.
That’s done; now I’m back to working on the fiction.
I’m putting the final touches on the first book of a supernatural adventure trilogy, the Empaya Iba Demon Series. The first entry is called The Mark of the Spider (Empaya Iba being a lethal Borneo spider).
Another project on the boiler is entitled PSNGR, a sci-fi drama about First Contact gone sour. This one gives me goose bumps as I write it.
