New Posts Coming Soon…It’s Been Nearly a Month!

A combination of situations–ideas for new ‘snippet’ posts, vehicle issues, all the mayhem in cities with riots, etc. over a death of some black dude–when cops seemingly mess up blacks and others on a daily basis…why just a protest about the death of George Floyd? Or is something more sinister going on? Plus all that corona virus stuff going on as lock downs end–so the riots can begin? Like I said, is something more sinister going on? So have I been distracted by all this stuff? Seems that way….

Now if I come upon an idea for a ‘snippet’ post, I will have at it, but trying to write another novel is also playing into the distraction. But spiritual guidance has to play its part…

When I got the three books in one The Prodigal Band Trilogy published by Lulu I had to limit the amount of pages to be included to just over 700 pages. Since the original The Prodigal Band was about 400 pages I had to delete several parts of the book that were not quite that important to include, as well as parts of Battle of the Band (about 200 pages) and The Prophesied Band (a little over 100 pages in small print; about 140 pages otherwise). So my next series of posts will include what I call “Deleted Scenes” from the three novels published within the complete trilogy.

The first “Deleted Scene” should be up by this weekend. Stay tuned.

Born on Long Island, NY, in 1952, now live in the mountains of far west Texas. Began writing fiction stories at about 8 years old with pen and loose leaf paper, and created the characters in my Prodigal Band Trilogy as a teenager. From the 70s to the 90s I created the scenario which I believe was inspired. While bringing up and home schooling my two children I continued to work on the novels and published "Battle of the Band" in 1996 and "The Prophesied Band" in 1998. Took off the next several years to complete home schooling and also working as an office manager for the local POA. In 2016, I retired, then resumed The Prodigal Band, a FREE PDF book that tells the whole story to its glorious end. Hint: I'm a true believer in Christ and I'm on a mission from God, writing to future believers, not preaching to the choir. God gave me a talent and, like the band in my books, I am using that talent for His glory, not mine (and, like me, the band is on its own journey, only fictional.) I also wrote for my college newspaper and headed up production, was a columnist in a local newspaper in the early 2000s, and wrote for and edited "Log of the Trail," the news letter for the Texas Mountain Trail Writers, and wrote for and edited it's yearly catalog of writings, "Chaos West of the Pecos." OmegaBooks is my self-publishing sole proprietorship company founded in 1995. Other jobs included teaching secondary math, health aide, office worker, assembly line work, and free-lance writing and bookkeeping,much of it while home schooling.
