Friday The 13th News


Notes on Friday the 13th:

This has been an amazing week. My novel, Everybody Dreams, is available on and I received a shipment of several hundred to begin selling and distributing to local bookstores.

The first question I’m asked most often is: How can I buy it? 

1) You can click on the title above and it will take you immediately to for purchase. 

2) You can wait for one of the book signings. At this point I have a ‘kick off’ at Everybody Reads (which has long hosted our Peninsula Writers local writing group) on Thursday, March 5th from 6:30 (reception) to 9p.m. On Monday, March 23rd at 7p.m. I’ll be at Schuler’s Books at the Eastwood Mall. I am currently talking with Barnes & Noble in East Lansing to schedule an event there, which I’ll advertise here. 

3) Give me a call and pick up a copy at my office or catch me at another speaking engagement and purchase it from me personally.

My plan is to create ever widening circles of events, signings, etc. throughout Michigan, gradually expanding through the mid-west and beyond. My dream? Events and signings in Maui, Santa Fe, New York, Paris, London….

As of this writing, my book is within the top 12,000 sellers on amazon. That doesn’t sound like much, but I’ll keep you up to date.

Besides the book, Monkey Business Consulting is up and running. See our web-site at Tish Vincent and I have upcoming events within the month. I’ll be doing a Dream Workshop at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing on Friday, March 6, 9-noon. You can sign up for it by contacting Michigan State University’s School of Social Work department of Continuing Education (google it, it’s quick to find). The Monkeys are also involved in the very first MSU Summer Institute to be held in Traverse City in July! More on this in the near future.

And as for jazz? Still listening and planning new and improved versions of The Vinyl Side of Midnight. This week I’ll have Stevie Benge on the show. Stevie currently resides in Olympia, Washington, but used to live here in Lansing, MI. He was a student at L.C.C. and used to fill in for me when I was off. Later he did the same for Ed Love in Detroit, then went on to be a jazz programmer in at a station in Washington. Stevie also designed this web site for me. Pretty cool? We’ll talk all things jazz this week.

I will be updating this with regularity now, with an attempt to do some new writing weekly. So keep coming back!
