Can I Get a Witness?

            First of all… I thank everyone who already purchased Wild Blue (just released about a week ago). Response is very good. Thank you so much!

            Although I am a novice (because this is my first novel) agents, publishers, and authors have educated me on the need for … REVIEWS! They tell me nothing sells more books than “word of mouth” via a good review. Accordingly, I will be so very grateful if you would kindly post some of your own very good words for Wild Blue: Saving the World with Duct Tape and WD-40.

            “Official” Wild Blue description: It is spring, 2003, in Pasadena, California and the world of digital technology is exploding. For Theophilus Spivak, some of it explodes right in front of him. The Channel 8 tower blows up during The Pirate’s bootleg TV broadcast. Theo and his rocket scientist friend, Kevin Oxley, are prime suspects. Theo, Kevin, and their boss, Dr. Francis Weksler (the man who created stealth airplane technology) accidentally invent a device that controls weather. When they fly a tornado as if it were a radio-controlled drone, a bumbling pseudo-religious cult imprisons them and demands weaponized weather. Coerced into creating a force that will destroy Los Angeles, Theo and his colleagues must decide whether to save themselves—or the world.

            With audacious creativity, this high-tech, high-tension adventure reveals things you’ve probably never seen before: horse lips, robotic lizards, a teardrop tattoo, the shoe-tree, flaming zeros, exploding machine guns, a miracle, and a man-eating Rexlithar. Funny and full of surprise, Wild Blue is flank speed entertainment. You’ll smile warmly at the clumsy romance. You’ll ponder startling facts. And you will laugh out loud.

      Well, now that we’ve taken care of business, I can share the letter I received from my Aunt Mable in my little desert hometown of Blythe, California . . .

Dear Burl,

[Aunt Mable thinks it’s the Ives of March]

            It’s ben a tuff week for us, whut with our car trouble and that beer virus. Can’t recall which beer it is, but we drink light so I guess w’re okay. I am riting this while we are at yore Aunt Ruth’s beer bar, Ruthie’s Tap, in East Blythe. Don’t yall worry none, she’s keeping us all spread safely apart with a seven foot pole. (He’s the bouncer, a former basketball player from Warsaw.)

            Ruthie has purty good food here. Yore Unkel Jethro sunk his teeth into a steak. They stayed in the steak.

            Oh… now an East Blythe mechanic, who is one of our trouble-makers, jist came in carrying a jumper cable. Ruth looked him square in the eyeballs and said, “All rite, I’ll serve you a beer, but don’t start anything.”

            Well, better close for now. Gotta get the car into the shop. Ya know yore Unkel Jethro and me are big supporters of the Blythe police, so that splains whut happened. I wuz drivin us down Lovekin Boulevard, the main street here in Blythe, and some guy yelled “Pig!” at me. I turned my head to look at him and shouted back, “Yur a Jerk!” And then I ran into the pig.

            P.S. We’ve got toilet paper hoarders here, too. But, you can look at the pitcher and see we ain’t worried. We got a grapefruit tree and one leaf equals two squares.
