Shortly after the 9/11 tragedy, I began to wind down my business involvement and focus on a few unfinished novel outlines. Within a year, I was fully divested of my business interests and devoted my time to rewriting my novel, PARTNERS, and finishing THE LAST FRUIT STAND ON GUAM and ALASKA BE DAMNED. I was tickled pink when PARTNERS was picked up by a publisher. Once it was out, I took the show on the road. The rest of this story ends with everything I’ve written placed into the e-book format and for sale through AMAZON, and all the other e-book sellers. Sales have been sporadic and sometimes very disappointing. Overall, however, I make more at the bottom line than I did when I was doing the ‘book tour’.
Now it’s time to turn another page in my life. I’m going back into business and letting the writing-book marketing endeavor slide to the back burner. I have ten novels published. I have six screenplays ready for the silver screen. My eleventh novel is finished but not yet edited or formatted. I expect to have it on the shelf soon.
My new endeavor allows me to work at my own pace and it creates jobs for Panamanians. In addition, it will upgrade the quality of life for those people involved; clients and associates.
