I'm back!

Hello everybody. I returned to the pnw a few days ago and am glad to be back!

Some folks wondered what had happened to me. I left for Arizona in December of 2014 for a job offer in Arizona. It went sour. I found other work and forged ahead.

During this time, I rented an old trailer near the Verde River in central Arizona. I have avoided TV for many years now, and decided to hide from the internet for a while.

The end result was a book! Sorry, the book has not a thing to do with motorcycles. It's a SCi-Fi novel. It has been published and I want to let everyone know about it.

The Accidental Ambassador

If this goes against the rules, let me know and I'll pull the link.

I'm excited to be back! See y'all out on the road.

All I can say about living in a ** down by the river is that it can do great things for one's imagination and focus; especially if one ignores the internet until the research and editing phase begins.

The book, 375 pages when I can afford to print it in paper, was roughed-out in six weeks. It then took me almost six more months to edit the work and get it published. Of course I found a few more small errors in the work after submitting it, but I will submit a more polished work by the time I can afford to print paper. The e-book will be re-submitted at that time.

OK. I know that this is a motorcycle forum, so I'll attempt to keep my literary enthusiasm from gushing out all over the site.

The withdrawal symptoms don't last forever; they just feel like they will.
