Elvis Has Left the Building

“Elvis Has Left the Building” was my first published short story, and it was inspired by this work of art from Eric Semelroth called Imitation A La King.

It is a story of a Las Vegas busker at a crossroads in his life. He sees his life in the rearview mirror with a mix of fondness and regrets, and ponders what’s ahead for him. Sounds bleak, but I guarantee that it is chock full o’ humor.

The story is published in a collection called Visions of Life 2 from Crow Woods Publishing. A traditional book launch and promotion was impossible in 2020, so here’s an excerpt of a YouTube digital launch featuring yours truly with several dramatic readings from my story.

You can click this link to order from Amazon for Kindle or in paperback. If you prefer, you can order directly from Crow Woods Publishing through this link.

But you may not want to read the whole book. You may want to read only my story. Allow me to make that happen for you. Buy a digital version of the story emailed to you for only 50 cents. And not just the story as published in the book, but enhanced with a bonus joke!

My Parasitic Twin Wants to be President

This novella was released earlier in 2020 to critical acclaim. No, wait. I got that wrong. It was released to acclaimed criticism. It was a story I had wanted to write for years, and the 2020 election year seemed to provide the perfect backdrop. It’s a heartwarming tale of two unusually close brothers as they hit the presidential campaign trail in advance of the Iowa caucuses. You can read more about it and purchase it on Amazon through this link below for just $0.99. What else can provide several hours of lighthearted reading for under a buck?

For you Amazon haters out there, and I know there are some, you can also order a digital version emailed to you through this link.

The novella is full of humor, some sophisticated and some sophomoric. But while it is guaranteed to coax some smiles and chuckles from you, it hopefully will also give you pause to consider some of the issues of the day that are addressed throughout.
