Terrence, I have heard some good things about you through the grapevine via your aunt.  She was principal of my high school in Daytona (after I left).  What are you writing these days?

Hi Terrance, thanks for friending. Good luck with your gritty '30s noir stories. Like my noir detective hat? My books are gritty too, but set in present day New Orleans. Hope you'll check out my video trailer for ABSOLUTION.

Hi Terrence,

Hope all is going well for you, and that your writing is proving productive.

Please can I ask you  if you'd mind voting for me in the annual Preditors & Editors Readers Polls?  Requiem for the Ripper has been nominated as Best Thriller Novel and Glastonbury as Best Mystery Novel.

To vote just go to the links below, tick the box next to the title and then go down and click on VOTE. You will receive an almost instant email with a confirming link to click on to verify your vote and once that's done, your vote is registered. It's really simple and I would appreciate any support I can get in this annual poll. If you could put the word round I'd be most grateful.

Here are the direct links to the voting pages for both books.

For Glastonbury, (Mystery)  


 And for Requiem for the Ripper (Thriller)


Best regards and happy new year wishes to you.
