Shameless Self Promotion, Volume 2
Help a starving writer get home! It’s easy: if you have a Kindle or a Kindle app for your PC, tablet or phone, you can download a copy of the novel, Amber Waves, by Roy Blokker, for only $2.99! I guarantee it is a great summer read, filled with Gods and warriors and three thousand year old whores and four talking vultures and very interesting people! Here’s the link:
Now that the business end is out of the way, here's the news that's fit to print. CharleeRose is doing her job, which is to grow. She is one month and four days old today, and already shows the good gene pool on both sides (Am I bragging? Yes I am!). Her big brother Xander is enjoying his new role, though sometimes he has to be too quiet for too long, so Opa and Oma give him the chance to be the rambunctious six year old that he inevitably is. Nik and Holli are getting a rhythm and the baby, as she gets bigger, is getting more reasonable on her feeding schedule. Meanwhile, our grandson to be Chase is almost fully cooked; we head to Los Osos in less than three weeks! And of course I am delighted because we are flying -- we try to get one airplane ride (round trip) every year and have done, mostly, since 2001. I am still looking for a job where I travel from airport to airport just to review the airports, but I haven't found it yet.
Finally, watch for more writing news, and thanks for being there for me!
I was born in Holland in 1950. My parents immigrated to the US when I was two. I have many close friends and family on both continents. My wife Diane and I have been happily married since 1974. I have four children and one grandchild (two more are on the way). I love writing and sharing what I wrote most of all..
