Humor Book Looks At My #ADHD Childhood

Hello all

All the advice I’ve been getting lately suggests that I need to have a variety of promotions in play, including a brief clip on YouTube. Today I took my first stab at doing just that, and so it’s up and running at this link

Let me know what you think. Karin says the audio could be a little crisper, but I was going for mellow. After all, one of the ideas I’m trying to get across is that people can chill out a bit when they grow up. But if the consensus is that it needs work, then I can redo it or just sharpen it up a bit in Audacity.

I rummage around and found some shots from the family album, and I think they work. I thought that would be better than pointing a camera at myself and just having a talking head. But… it might not be a bad idea to add in a contemporary image.

Thanks to all of you who have helped spread the word about my book. It helps, too, to encourage readers to go on Amazon and review either the print or Kindle versions.

Thanks. The book can be purchased at any number of places, including Barnes and Noble. At the moment, though, I am working on getting more attention and reviews on Amazon. Here’s that link.


Proofreading Weekend – Problem Child polishing

Hello all

I’m doing one more round of revisions this weekend, and I have download information for beta readers. The book has been out since December, but I wanted to polish and proof it  it prior to sending it off to the Thurber judges.

The information on downloads is below.

I wanted to give a shout out to my proofreaders, Barry Hilchey and especially Venkat Raman. I’ve been over this book numerous times, but it’s a truism that you are blind to your own errors.

Karin, too, has spotted glitches Thanks.

I wanted to show off my other current writing activity,

This logo was designed by my late brother, Jim, and it makes me smile every time I look at it. The website will feature bios of humorists, book reviews, articles on the history of humor and stand-up.

So, if you know of talented, upcoming comics and humorists, please let me know. I’d love to interview them. It also helps to give me their contact information.

Stay tuned.
