Writer’s Motto: Press On

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

Calvin Coolidge

And so, it’s time for me to press on…

… the manuscript awaits.

Madness and Manuscripts



“I am a great believer in luck, and I find the  harder I work, the more I have of it.”

—  Stephen Leacock

Despite my hacking cough, scratchy throat and broken voice …. the manuscript for  “Casualties of the Recession Depression”  is (amazingly) still on schedule for completion on December 21st!!!

ISBN numbers, bar codes, and copyright registration are all in the works.  Sales/marketing/distribution channels are waiting the “go ahead” signal.  Book launch date will be in February 2013 (exact date TBD).

I am very tired, but beyond thrilled.

And, as always, I am one loop away from being totally loopy.

Stay tuned …
