A Short Preview of my novel: METAL MAN WALKING

At the suggestion of a reader, I’m posting a short preview of my novel, METAL MAN WALKING.

Rose answers the big ?s — and I’m not kidding, she’s funny when she does!


I’ve been meaning to read Kafka for ages – so I can just drop the fact that I’ve read his stuff casually into conversations and become even more popular than I already am. Well now I’ve got a Kindle and I’m not afraid to use it, so I bought Kafka’s entire works for $2.50, which is kind of an insult to him come to think of it.

This guy wakes up in the morning, and he’s a cockroach. His first thought is, damn, I’ve slept in! What will the boss think when I don’t catch the early morning train! How will I support my aged parents and lovely younger sister?

My novel – METAL MAN WALKING now available

Hello Fellow VBA Winners and bloggers and writers!

My novel, METAL MAN WALKING, is finally available for purchase!

, , , , , , , ,


Okay, that’s it

I just approved 56 comments — yes, 56 new blogs and blogger-VBA-winners. I don’t think I can possibly catch up now with the VBA blogroll.

Please continue to support your fellow bloggers.

I will make an effort to feature a VBA blogger at least once a week — I hope that’s a good compromise.

Blessings; and all the usual pleasantries for your day!
