Audio Recording of Novel

Besides the deaf, some people enjoy audio recordings of books. They listen to them while driving alone for long distances, or maybe while lying in bed at night. So I’d like to make an audio recording of my novel.

Inspirational Quote

At Loyola University, I studied English, Finance and Religion. As a driving theme of this novel, I often thought about a quote from one of the books by the spiritual writer of Thomas Merton, about how we treat each other.

Excerpt from Novel

Several people asked that I post an excerpt from my novel. It’s difficult to choose what to post here. Some dialog would be more lively, but I chose instead something that gives you a sense of my writing abilities and a sense of the main character.

On Kindle

Last December I bought an Amazon Kindle to begin to understand how one uses electronic books and the like. It took me awhile to get around to dealing with the software to format one of my books for Kindle, but I’ve finally done it.

Lower Price for Kafka Novel

Although I like Lulu.com, I’ve recently encountered two problems with having them print my novel: the cost to the reader is too high; and after two months my book still isn’t in the databases of booksellers.

Self-Publishing

With the new technology of on-demand publishing, it costs me nothing to self-publish my book. So, rather than not write novel or not published them, I’ve decided to publish my novels on my own.
