It's available for pre-order on Amazon, but, of course, it's free for you guys (and for anyone who signs up for my mailing list). The easiest way for you to get it for free (Kindle version) is to sign up for my new releases mailing list (you'll get an automated email with a link to the free download). I send out very few emails, won't share your email address, and you can unsubscribe at any time.


If you really don't want to do that, send me a PM and I'll send you a link to the MOBI file (for Kindle).

Also, my second book, Drive, Ride, Repeat is permanently free on Amazon.



So help yourself if you haven't read it. I use that as a "funnel" book. About 150 people download that every day and get exposed to my other books.
Released it yesterday. Big bucks rolling in (35 cents at a time)!

But seriously, it's nice not to have to worry about the money.

Next Book Released--Thanks For the Help!

I released Yesterday's Thief today!



I couldn't have done it without you guys. Well, I could have, but it wouldn't have been as good.

Many of the ideas came from you. For example:

Cold Fusion: Please Check for Accuracy

Help me Generate an Energy Crisis

Need Acid to Dramatically Dissolve Metal

Brainstorm a Way to Track Down a Car Owner

[For my fiction book] Redeeming Stock Certificates

Question about Penny Stocks

Where to Hide Stash for Access in 20-40 Years?

Anyway, it's 99 cents today, and if you send me an email (FoggyBeach@gmail.com) telling me you bought it (Put "done bought it" in the subject), I'll send you the companion ebook that discusses the technologies in Yesterday's Thief.

You can see it on Amazon here.

Thanks again for the help!

Travel blog

At Gumby's recommendation, I am posting the URL for our travel blog here.
There are 42 trip stories posted broken down into 4 categories:
Ocean cruises
River cruises
Land trips abroad
Land trips in the US
There is also a 5th category of some trips I took before meeting my wife, including a trip to China and the Trans-Siberian Express.
There are also stories about me flying a jet, a helicopter, and a B-25
Here is the link: Travels Around the World With Steve & Kathy

I'll be releasing The Universe Next Door in a few weeks. If your would like a free "advance review copy" (eBook format) please PM me. You'd be under no obligation to leave a review.



It's funny, when I came up with the title, I kept thinking: Why does that sound so familiar? Then I remembered The Millionaire Next Door.

Here's the Blurb:

Corby is recovering from his last mission, enjoying life with his new family, when he’s sucked into a parallel universe with nothing but his clothes, his dog, and his eighty-three-year-old grandmother-in-law.

On this version of Earth, the dinosaurs didn’t go extinct and the world is ruled by a spacefaring civilization of dinobirds. If Jake wants to return home, he’ll need to not only survive but locate the rulers of Earth so they can send him back.

Worse, Corby learns that a universe collision is imminent. Unless he can adapt to his new reality and work with the dinobirds to ward off that danger, his universe, as well as countless others, will cease to exist.

The Universe Next Door
is a standalone book, and may be understood without reading any of the other books in the series. However, for maximum enjoyment, consider reading Contact Us first.

For traditional musicians (Irish/Scottish/Celtic)

When I travel I like to combine sightseeing with the music I love. I am a fiddler and I enjoy trad sessions. You can find them all over the globe in pubs and other locales. I have started to blog my fiddle adventures.

My Scotland trip:

A three day Michigan trip

I too love Celtic music. We drove all the way to Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island expecting to find the music in May. Come to find out, the musicians live elsewhere, and come home in July.

It is true that summer (and the fall with Celtic Colours Festival) are the best times to see the great trad musicians of Cape Breton and mainland Nova Scotia. But there are sessions all year round in Nova Scotia. And you will find many of the top musicians at them. https://thesession.org/sessions/sear...&q=Nova+Scotia

We went to Hootenanny in Inverness. Really enjoyed the music, sitting at a table right behind where they were playing.
