Have a Cup of Coffee on me!

It’s my birthday Sunday, and I’m giving away copies of my new short fiction piece, “The Price of a Cup of Coffee.”

There’s no hidden grab; I don’t want your email address. You don’t need to sign up for anything.

It is my gift to you. ❤️ [Just click on the photo or the “Download” button below.]

And there’s no time limit to this offer.

what is The Price of a Cup of Coffee?

“The Price of a Cup of Coffee” looks at fame.

If you’re in the industry or know someone who is, you’ll probably relate. And if you’re not, but you’ve wondered what it’s like to be famous, you might be surprised. 

“Those overlooked by media attention too often forget that those basking in its so-called warmth are still flesh-and-blood mothers, fathers, daughters, and sons trying to do the best they can under frequently surreal conditions. They aren’t a commodity we are entitled to spend.”

Excerpt from a Note From The Author: The Price of a Cup of Coffee

If you don’t want a book format, or you don’t want to download anything, head over to the PDF version of “The Price of a Cup of Coffee” here (but the piece works so much better in epub format! I encourage you to check it out if you can!)

You can get your free copy in January if you’re a Kindle user.

It’s That Time of Year

With the Christmas holidays just around the corner, I also wanted to take a moment and say thank you for sharing this year for me.

The past twelve months have been challenging for a lot of people. We’ve all had our share of struggles and stumbles, but it’s really not about the hits or misses—it’s about the people we meet along the way. And I’ve met some of the most amazing individuals imaginable traveling through 2021.

In A Christmas Carol—my favorite piece of writing (ever)—Charles Dickens lays forth what I consider the real magic of the holiday season.

“I have always thought of Christmas time as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely and to think of people as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”

Charles Dickens,

Where ever you are, in the world, in your life, I’m happy our paths have crossed and that you’ve stopped by to visit today. I hope you like the mini-book, and I look forward to sharing great adventures with you in 2022.

  1. Thank you so much for this. I appreciated deeply your articles this year. I think they helped a lot (Kevin’s supporters and the man himself). It was like cold water in the desert. It was a pleasure to meet you through your texts. I am following you and hope to read you often in 2022.
    I wish you beautiful Christmas holidays.

    1. Thank you so much, Liliane. I appreciate your kind words immensely and I’m so very happy you connected with my writing. (And thank you for the beautiful way you’ve described it. That’s an amazing Christmas present!) I hope your holidays are bright and wonderful!


  2. Nice. It did stimulate my curiosity! I like your site.Looks like I’ll be reading some of this!

  3. Powerful. The consideration of life from the other side of the camera lens is powerful and you do it justice. This should be mandatory reading for anyone in media studies or anyone even thinking about a career in the public eye.
