In 1944, as Brooklyn native George Anton serves his country in England, detonating bombs, the top brass realizes he possesses another skill which they need even more: typewriter repair. He is sent to Paris, a city rollicking after its liberation from German occupation, to assist the diplomatic and intelligence corps with their communication needs. In the meantime, he befriends translator Sophie Bellamy, and together they discover a plot which may undermine Allied efforts to conquer Hitler's forces.
Amazon is featuring a special offer on What You Need, through the MatchBook feature: if you purchase a paperback copy, you will receive the eBook for free! In the eBook, the images in the appendix appear in vibrant color, and links are provided to take you from the text to the appendix and back, where appropriate...ooooh!
What You Need is now available, not only as an eBook, but also in paperback, via Amazon.com. Thanks to my buddy Joy O'Meara for the gorgeous interior design!
Technology can be confusing, I know. If you do not have a Kindle, have no fear! You can read What You Need through the Amazon.com website, or you can download the free Kindle Reading App, which will work on your iPad, Android device, Microsoft device, desktop, etc. I've provided a link on my main page, which will show you how to get it. Eventually, hard copies of the book will be available too. Thanks for your interest!
...and quite affordable, I must say :-)
It's been an extended journey toward the publication of this collection, and it's a relief to finally just have it "out there." If you're interested in reading, please click on the book cover or Amazon link on my main page, to be taken to the text. I will be honored to receive your feedback, via Amazon.com, Goodreads, or this website. Thanks in advance for reading! I hope you enjoy.
I am about to release my first eBook: What You Need, on Amazon.com. This would not have been possible without my dear friends Joy O'Meara (book designer), Colleen Christi Willett (legal counsel), and Joe Herbert (co-author of original screenplay version of "Stairways"). Artist Erich Preis contributed a wonderful painting to the project, and pianist Taisiya Pushkar accompanied me on the companion song to "Haunted Heart" (available on my homepage). Countless others provided moral support and inspiration; I love you all.
