HEART WORDS

Isn’t there something about a story that touches you deep in your soul in a genuine way? You know the ones I’m talking about. Some books and movies put you on the receiving end of heart words or they make you wish—make you want—to be the one standing there and listening to the love of your life saying, “I love you, I need you”.

For me a book just doesn’t have that, I’ll never forget this book touch unless there are true feelings between two people or characters. The love can be physical or platonic. I’m a romantic and I keep wondering what happened to me. I mean, I’m a guy and I’m not supposed to fall for these kinds of books and movies.

I do enjoy action, thrillers, fantasies—which often have those scenes I crave—and most any genre for a good read and to see how an author pulls it all together. But my most memorable reads are heart touching books with heart words that leave me smiling or even crying. Yes, I have been known to cry. Not often. How ’bout them Bears!

I read that Nicholas Sparks was given a hard time for being a man and writing romance novel by his fellow writers. Having sold millions of copies of his books I would think that no one could or would give him a bad time now.

Is it hard to write scene that touch a reader and possibly leave them with tears or a smile? If you write it like you are there and say it the way you would like to hear it and don’t be restricted by a stone hard plot line, then the answer is yes. I believe any genre of books need something to touch the reader in the heart even in the most desperate of situations. I’ve known men; tough ones, who would never be caught crying or showing their sensitive side get up and leave the room when heart words find them. That’s a good thing to know that these harden, straight line people know what it means to feel.

Several years ago I wrote a book for my grandson to try and help him through the hard times of his life to come. I have tried on a number of occasions to read it aloud to my wife and others and I just can’t do it. I guess I’m a sap for heart words.

What does it take to make a book unforgettable for you?

Every person out there is the rarest of all diamonds- Nicholas Sparks

A New Book is Born!

I want to introduce my latest novel- DEATH’S DOOR– A Thriller filled with action, suspense, humor and a touch of romance.

To a writer a newly published book is akin to the birth of a child. The writer spends hours and hours writing, nurturing, rewriting, getting input from First Readers and others and like a child; we then send them off to let them grow and improve and return to us to see what the editors have done. And don’t forget getting the perfect cover designed! I’ll write more about this process at another time, but for now I want to tell you that this book I present to you is a great story that has been professionally prepared just for you—the reader.

Of course, most writers will gush and exclaim about how great their book is—it’s expected. But I have read this book in manuscript form at least 50 times in preparing it for you and I enjoy it each time I read, even while looking for errors. Death’s Door is my fourth published book and I learn more from each manuscript I write. I will make you a promise: Read Death’s Door and you won’t be disappointed. If you don’t like it I will send you another of my works—your choice—at no charge! I don’t expect to give any book away with this claim. And by the way, my Muse is well pleased.

And now, Ladies and Gentlemen. I present to you Death’s Door:

Back cover description:

 When a terrorist’s dirty bomb threatens to contaminate the United States heartland, only pure American courage can disarm and disassemble the threat of Death’s Door. 

New Jersey State Police Detectives Dell Sharpton and Bill Anders have been supporting the state’s Terrorism Task Force by using their Arabic language skills to gain trust and solve crimes within the tightly knit Arab American community.  When officials at the National Security Agency learn of Dell’s remarkable courage and odd but proven ability to “see” the immediate dangers facing his tactical operations team, he and his partner Bill get caught up in a secret government run counter-terrorism mission that leads both men—and the ones they love—directly to Death’s Door. 

Death’s Door is a fast paced thriller with non-stop action, suspense, humor and a touch of romance.

Due to contractual agreement with Amazon Books; Death’s Door is only available as an Ebook through Amazon.com for the next 90 days. As a paperback it is available everywhere—just ask for it by name and author.
