New Book Published!

My newest book, Ordinary Man: Writings, Ramblings and Rants is now for sale at Amazon as a paperback for $6.99 and at a discounted price of $3.99 for the Kindle version.  The book is under exclusive contract to Amazon for the Kindle until Oct. 11, 2012.  After that date, it will be released as an e-book on other platforms, such as the Nook.  The Kindle version will be available to anyone with an Android, IPhone, IPad or Android Tablet, all of which have the Kindle reader apps available free.

This is a semi-autobiographical collection of 35 short stories and articles.  I recount some adventures in rural northern Japan in a series of tales involving a beat up old Toyota and a group of obnoxious gaijins (foreigners) with no fear of "skirting the fringes of legal and moral."  I take a humorous look at religion, factory work, and growing up in rural Arkansas. Those of you who went to school at South Side High School will no doubt recall some of these stories.  Interspersed in among the laughs, I include some insightful and thought-provoking stories of self-help, self-awareness and self-discipline.  Topping it all off:  My well-known, often frightening obsession with 80's hair metal.
