Pump It Up – for Free!!

Welcome to week #2 of the my-new-book-will-be-released-soon-so-I’m-giving-away-a-free-book-each-week-until-it’s-out giveaway!


This week’s offering is my third (or fourth, possibly fifth depending on how you look at it) novel, Pump It Up.

Pump It Up takes Ike and Brewski into the underworld of back room cosmetic surgery.

Sadly, this book was based on a real-life news story.

The story, in my hometown paper, was about a man who had been arresting for giving women breast, butt and lip enhancements using industrial grade silicone (aka caulking). That’s right. Industrial grade silicone…and sometimes the expanding foam stuff you see in home improvement stores. Needless to say – the procedures often ended in disaster.

After reading the story I knew there was a book in there somewhere!

Sadly, this practice is much more common than I knew, something I discovered while researching the book.

Pump It Up attempts to bring it to the light in a humorous way (as humorous as it can be, anyway).

The giveaway begins at midnight on October 8th, 2018 and goes until midnight October 13, 2018 – get your FREE copy and share this post with your friends, family and coworkers – because everybody loves FREE stuff!!

I hope you enjoy Pump It Up.

PS – Doomed to Repeat is on schedule for an early November release so stick around for more giveaways!










As always – thank you for reading

How You can Save the Economy

It’s no secret the economy is in tough shape these days – and there’s no shortage of blame being assessed. There’s also no shortage of people with solutions for the problem.

Raise taxes, lower taxes, tax the poor, eat the rich…

The funny thing is that the solution is simpler than you can imagine.

All you have to do is buy this book…

You can “Pump Up” the economy

Hard to believe, isn’t it? I know…but it’s really that easy.

Allow me to explain.

Every time somebody buys a copy of Pump It Up it puts a few dollars in my pocket. According to my mother – money burns a hole in my pocket, so that means I’ll be spending that money.

You never know what I’ll spend it on; it could be something as seemingly trivial as a nice Sunday morning breakfast on the ocean. Since I hate eating alone I would bring some friends. This means the local diner gets more business, and if I sell enough books I bring more friends.

If I bring enough friends the diner may have to hire an extra server and maybe a bus-person. That creates two jobs right there.

Maybe the server is a mother, now she needs child care while she’s working so she hires a nanny.

The nanny’s increased income is just the amount she needed to buy a new car, which puts some extra cash in the pocket of the salesman, while the bus-person now has added income for his/her college fund.

The car salesman puts his extra cash toward a new condo and when the bus-kid goes to college he rents an off-campus apartment.

The person who sold the condo to the salesman invests the proceeds of the sale in a growing company and the owner of the apartment building hires a painting company to give the building a new look.

When the stock of the company goes up, they expand – eventually becoming a major employer with hundreds, maybe even thousands of employees. The bus-kid goes to college and with his high-quality education goes on to create a world-changing technological device akin to the wheel, the computer or the sleep-number mattress.

And so it goes…the economy grows and expands until all of a sudden our budget is balanced, our debt to China is paid and we’ve paid Justin Bieber to stop performing.

All because you bought my book.

So go ahead, click the book cover above and order your copy. You’ll get the enjoyment of a pretty decent story and at the same time you’ll be saving the country from economic ruin.

I thank you and an entire nation thanks you.

Pump It Up e-book now available

I am pleased to announce that my fifth novel, Pump It Up, is now available in e-format (the print version is scheduled for release later this month).

Pump It Up is a fast-paced thriller centered on the world of illegal, underground silicone injections—a world that really exists, although probably not to the extremes I write about!

Pump It Up

Ernie Boudreaux performs back room injections at bargain basement prices to women (or men) looking to enhance their anatomy. When a patient dies on the table Ernie tries to dispose of the body, but doesn’t count on a witness.

Dave Ryan is on vacation in Flagler Beach, Florida and suddenly finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time when he witnesses two people throwing a body into a dumpster. The next thing he knows, he’s sitting on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean chained to an anchor.

Ex-Navy SEAL Ike is just trying to enjoy a quiet evening on his boat with friends—but it isn’t meant to be. Before he can say sex-change operation he finds himself caught in a high-speed, high-stakes adventure with the lives of his friends hanging in the balance.


Like all of my books, Pump is a quick, easy read with a few good laughs thrown in as well.

I invite you to enter my version of Flagler Beach and join Ike, Brewski, Didi and Ralphie as they operate on the fringe of legal to keep the community safe for the rest of us.

And if you’re planning a vacation to Flagler Beach, don’t worry…I eat at Finn’s all the time and hardly ever see people running around with guns!!!

Pump It Up can be purchased for $2.49 on Amazon for Kindles and the same price on Smashwords for all other e-readersImage.
