I hadn’t sung, or even thought about, Johnny Nash’s hit song “I Can See Clearly Now” in about forty years. But I did this morning. That’s when I woke up, turned on my computer, and saw that the Military Writers Society of America had placed my novel, The Oath, second on the list for their Recommended Reading List.
Associated Press (June 21, 2017)
This coming Sunday, June 25th, in the year 1876, Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer was killed, along with five companies of the Seventh Cavalry who rode with him, at the Battle of the Little Bighorn —
… Or was he?
I was honored recently by having my novel, The Oath, awarded the 2016 Bay Area Independent Publishers Association (BAIPA) Book Award for Fiction.
Funny how this book business works: you get frustrated because it’s so damn hard to get your work recognized by anyone but your wife and kids (and even that is sometimes dicey – ha ha). And then you get a call from a well-known and well-respected publishers’ association saying they have given your work their highest fiction award.
A book is a cool present.
A personalized and autographed book is REALLY a cool … and unique … present.

I started writing The Custer Conspiracy after imagining what the consequences would be if it just so happened that George Custer faked his own death and was not killed at the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
Probably none at all. After all, that battle occurred 140 years ago. Who the heck today would even care?
What can I tell you? Secret papers supposedly written by George Custer have been found. They contend there was a “conspiracy” to kill him at the Battle of the Little Bighorn, and somehow he thwarted that “conspiracy”. I know it sounds unbelievable, but you can read his story for yourself by following this link to Amazon.
