    Hi Richard, Thank you very much for sharing this intense and personal story. (Holiday Drive-in) I would love to schedule a time to call you into our radio show to discuss your experiences. Is that something you are open to? If so, might you be available late afternoon on Wednesday, 12/2? Again, thank you very much for sharing. We look forward to learning more about you, Eli

  2. RE: ‘The Salvation of Angelo Raguel’ ‘Red, Black and Blue’ and ‘Sons of Missouri’

    Your manuscripts were brought to our attention at the latest editorial board meeting where we discussed their potential, and the possibility of being published. Having read all the reports and taken note of the editors’ opinions, I can confidently state that the editorial board found all three works to be thoroughly immersive and well-written tales. We were particularly compelled by the unique storylines you include in each manuscript, and the editorial board was on the edge of their seat for every twist and turn your novels take. The board believes that our audiences everywhere could enjoy reading your thrilling tales as much as we did and that they could become favorites of many.
