    My good friend, Wayne Zurl, posted your info on FB. I checked it out and saw a close kin to the same theme in my mystery/crime novels. Like your style and outlay about your writing. I wish you the best. Even though I do a bunch on Kindle and Smashwords…I do not own an ereading device. I hang my head…but, I do like to read ‘hand-holdable- stuff…I will check this one out…wishin’ you the best, friend. Keep smilin’

      Thank you Lee! Thanks for stopping by and very glad to meet you. I appreciate the kind words. I understand about the ‘hand-holdable stuff’ as there is nothing like holding a book in your hand. I do love the Kindle though as it’s compact, neat and kind of fun to read on. They keep dropping the prices so eventually we’ll all own one just like MP3 players. We’ll see. Be well, and stop by anytime!

    Hi Richard!
    I just came across your book Frozen Past on Amazon and gobbled it right up and then I found Near Death and gobbled that one up too!!

    Then the hunt began to find your website and I’m so excited to see you’ll be releasing Near Sight. When are you expecting to release the book? I’m so looking forward to another fun ride. Keep them coming!

    So happy to have another favorite author.

      Thanks so much Tammy. Glad you enjoyed the books. I’m hoping for a late summer early fall release of NEAR SIGHTED and definitely before the year’s end. I’m also working on a collection of short stories I should be able to have available before the year’s end also. Thanks for stopping by. Be well!

      Thank you Sharon! Glad you’re enjoying FROZEN PAST. I appreciate you taking the time to tell me. It means a lot. As far as new books, I have 2 in the editing phases, NEAR SIGHTED and CACHE 72 and they should both be out before the summer. NEAR SIGHTED is part 2 of the NEAR DEATH trilogy and CACHE 72 brings back Jaxon Jennings from FROZEN PAST. Stay tuned!

    Hey Richard,
    Just posted the review for Near Death and, I am embarrassed to say, I’ve lost your email. The link is http://wp.me/p2eb7U-vf for your use. With your permission I will also post the review to Goodreads and Amazon within a short time.
    Thanks for letting me read your work. I enjoyed it!
    Best,

    I just found your books through your Christmas lights page! I’m a huge reader and a local, and look forward to reading your books and giving referrals to friends. You are doing what I have always wanted, and that is publish a novel someday. I’d love to know how you got started – are these Indie books that are just on e-readers? If you have a moment, I’d love to hear more about how you made your dream a reality. Best of luck – the preview on Cache 72 was great!

      HI Kim! Glad you found your way here and we have a lot of fun with the Christmas lights. I have to take a little break from writing to set it all up, but it’s worth it. The kids love it. I’ll drop you an email and say ‘Hi!’

    I have just finished “Frozen Past” and “Cache 72.” I throughly enjoyed both books. These are the types of books I love to read. They keep you guessing at what will happen next and have interesting and diverse characters. Thanks so much for providing these free books. I will be enjoying more of your titles.

    Hi Richard! I have to say I am very excited to start reading “Frozen Past”. I have to admit I had never heard of you or your books until I came across Frozen Past on Amazon. I was looking for a book to use for a college project. I decided to get some background info on the book to help me along the way and I am very interested. It sounds so exciting and I am sure I will be reading a lot of your other books before the year ends. I hope you have many more books to share in the future! 🙂

    Hi Richard. I came across a FB ad for Frozen Past. I decided to check it out and I’m really enjoying it. I live in Cecil County, Md so I’m familiar with some of the places you mentioned in the book. For example Prince George’s County and Bethany Beach, DE. I was curious if you have been to these areas. Bethany is not as well known as Rehoboth Beach, DE or even Ocean City, Md. It’s cool to find names of familiar places in books. Especially some of the lesser known areas. Btw, one thing that caught my attention for this series is Jaxon’s last name. It happens to be my maiden name.
