Blurbs from such notables as William F. Nolan (“Logan’s Run”) and Gary Braver, author of “Flashback.”

Since this IS my blog, I should be inviting all readers in the Quad City area to come see me at Book World at South Park Mall on Saturday, June 29th, from 1 to 4 p.m. Mainly, I’m launching RED IS FOR RAGE, which has, so far, won a NABE (National Association of Book Entrepreneurs) Pinnacle award for 2013, an E-lit award and was the leader in the YA (older YA) category throughout all preliminary Stoker (R) voting. (Jonathan Maberry won his 7th or 8th this year).

RED IS FOR RAGE is the second book in what will be a trilogy or a series. The third book is done and will be released shortly. First book in the series is “The Color of Evil,” which won an E-Lit award and the Illinois Women’s Press Association Silver Feather award.

Additionally, there will be copies of many of my other books, including the first book in the series (“The Color of Evil”), my collection of humorous essays (“Laughing through Life”), the non-fiction collection of movie reviews from the Quad City Times, with 50 films and 76 photos, It Came from the 70s: From The Godfather to Apocalypse Now.

The signing will begin at 1 p.m. and end at 4 p.m. and at 2, 3 and 4 p.m. a drawing will be held to award a FREE book of the winner’s choice (from books on site). Must be present to win.

Since nearly everyone else in my immediate family is taking off for St. Louis that day (HA! Like they’d come anyway!), I would sincerely appreciate seeing anyone I know at South Park Mall’s BookWorld book store on Saturday, June 29th, from 1 to 4 p.m.
