Awesome Indies Books has approved Hour for their site and written a nice review entitled “Beautiful Prose.”
“We meet soldiers on opposite sides of a battle with an elegant grace that only that time period (and someone who researched it thoroughly) could provide to a novel…it harkens back to those classic novels, like Tolstoy, who present the reader with a story that has depth, and approaches description at a much higher level than many novels of the modern day.”
My gratitude to them.

I really appreciate the opportunity to talk about my writing. Thank you.
And thanks to Dena for new photo.
I just joined The IndiePENdents, an organization focused on the promotion and excellence of independent publishing. They asked me to write a short piece about myself. Here it is and my thanks to them:
I realized the other day I hadn’t posted anything on this site for a while. The Puppet’s Tattered Clothes is indeed now available from Bartleby Snopes.
There are some short stories “in the hopper” but they need re-vision. I’ve been working hard on a second novel. It’s something I’ve been working on several years, and I’m determined to finish it.
I feel like I write very slowly, that the process is slow. I do a lot of re-vision, and I discover things about the characters as I go.
I’m learning a lot about the characters in the new novel. They’re a randy bunch, and their stories need care. But I’m at the point where I feel they’ve taken on a life of their own, and that’s exciting.
Bartleby Snopes will release my novella “The Puppet’s Tattered Clothes” on August 26th. It’s available for pre-order now at bartleby snopes
“Puppet’ has been in the works for a number of years. It’s about a young man living in Chicago, struggling with the past and his future.
