Update : "The Spartan Beach Boy"

My work, "The Spartan Beach Boy" has not only received very good reviews so far but has also been entered in an Awards contest - EPPIE 2007.

I'm hoping it does well and I'm very excited about it, as I would certainly like my work to be independently judged and compared with others.

Thanks to everyone, especially my friends, who have supported me through the years and encouraged me to become a writer. What started as a mere hobby has now yielded some fruit, as my next novel, an exciting story set in ancient Phyrgia and Macedonia (around 199 BC) titled "The Spartan Slave" will shortly be released by Whiskey Creek Press (Torrid) in December, 2006.

I will update progress and post excerpts here as we get closer to the publication date.

This was a fairly lengthy novel and required a lot of editing time. I am very satisfied with the final product, especially the cover. Check it out at the Whiskey Creek Press (Torrid) site under "Coming Soon" - http://whiskeycreekpresstorrid.com

Let me know what you think. I know I have not been updating this site regularly and will do so now, as I have been really busy finishing up this project "The Spartan Slave" as well as another novel, a sequel, which will take place in ancient Phyrgia, Macedonia and Rome.
