You're right, Johnny.  I like the new cover too, done by Gary Val Tenuta.  I have a good publisher for the book, and withdrew the partial I'd written on Text novel.

Johnny, just to bring you up to date: My story The Plan has been revised, edited and retitled  NIGHT CORRIDOR. It's now available in Paperback and for Kindle on     

 B & N  and  multiple formats

And again, congratulations on "The Rise" winning first place in the Screenwriting contest.


Thanks again for your kind words.  I hope you will sample Night Corridor.

Thanks, Johnny! Appreciate the vote, comments and all. That was good of you to do that for me.

As for the trailer, it was more my need at trying my hand at producing lol. Also, my dream is to see my screenplay adapted books make it to screen hence that kind of a trailer. We'll see if it works. Either way, it was fun making the trailer. Thanks again.

I've read her book. Actually, I read it in ms form before she sent it to her publisher. I cried and laughed -- it is so wonderful. Gives you hope, even tho it is a sad thing that happened to her.

I know! I plan on phoning in with a question. But thanks for reminding me -- the day's been a tad hectic, and it never hurts to give the ole brain a nudge! jo

1. RICHARD DIAMOND, PRIVATE EYE - Starring David Janssne
2. HARRY O' - Starring David Janssen
3. ROCKFORD FILES - Starring James Garner
4. MAGNUM, P. I. - Starring Tom Selleck
5. KOJAK - Starring Telly Savalas

Just an opinion. Of course, I'm biased - David Janssen was my friend.
