Happy Corn Day!
Today is one of the most amazing holidays of the year. Yes, it's June 11, and that marks National Corn (on the cob) Day! The beauty of corn is that so many foods are made from it; I would label it as the superfood!
I propose today we all enjoy a diet exclusively based on corn. Hard to do? No way. Check out this suggested menu that will have you experiencing carbs like never before.

Do you have a computer at home sitting idle 90% of the time? If you're like me, you have several. Did you know you can put wasted computing power to good use to help make scientific discoveries? Well now you do.
There is a distributed computing platform called BOINC that runs on your machine(s) as a screen saver. What happen is when the screen saver kicks in, your computer receives a calculation to work on which will help move us toward solving scientific problems.
The cool part is there are many to choose from:
As of today, there are 176,769 volunteers with 794,367 computers contributing to this project. The screen savers look pretty cool too! Rosetta looks like this:
I encourage your to download the screen saver, pick a cause you believe in, and donate that free idle processing to the world.
Spheria now available on audio!
I am super excited to announce that today my novel Spheria is available as an audio book! It was narrated by the very talented James Highfield who has the amazing ability to do tons of different voices. Right now you can get it on Audible, Amazon and iTunes.
If you have not yet read the print or ebook version, then I highly recommend you check this one out. It's my favorite format of the bunch, and a great way to make those daily commutes go by much faster.
Also makes a great Christmas present. Don't forget your friends and family!

As for Spheria 2, this is one of the many reasons it is delayed. The other one is life. Anyway, I am slowly making progress and the new cover design is up on my website. Check that out and let me know what you think.
Bookstore Signing 4/29/2017
Book Club Bookstore & More has moved to South Windsor! I will be at their grand opening celebration on 4/29/2017 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. If you have a free moment stop by and I will sign your copy of Spheria, or pick up a new one.
Here is a link to the event details:
Audio Book Coming Soon
I am super excited to announce that I signed a deal to produce an audio book version of Spheria! The narrator, James Highfield, of Mr. Biggs Productions, is highly versatile and will record a great rendition. I think the theatrical style of Spheria will lend itself well to an audio book and will open this novel to a whole new audience.
James is an Voice Over Actor living in Michigan. He has been cast in several professional and fan based projects with high audio standards. He has been doing his own audio recording and production for several years with the exception of a few cases. Along with voice over he has experience from several years of theater productions, worked for a few years as a college radio DJ, and he graduated from Northern Michigan University with a bachelors degree in psychology.
You can listen to a sample of James' work here:
With the demise of Borders and the struggling story of Barnes & Noble, the future looks like it's going to consist of only two sources of books: online retailers and indie bookstores. If you enjoy the feel and ambiance of being in a room with a selection of books to browse through, please support your locally run independent bookstore.
I added a link on the Spheria page to find your nearest indie bookstore. If you don't find Spheria there, you can easily special order it. Happy reading!
