My latest novel, The Old Royal, is currently available at Amazon (you can click the book cover in my signature for details). If you prefer a physical copy, please visit the book detail page on my website where you can find every place it is available.

The Old Royal is the story of Anthony Jessup, a daydreamer working a dead end helpdesk job. More than anything else, Anthony wants to become a famous novelist like his idol, Roger Kurrey. However, Anthony lacks the writing talent to break into print. When he receives an antique Royal typewriter as a gift, Anthony soon discovers that the typewriter can transport him into the past. With this new information, Anthony devises a plan to fulfill his fantasy of becoming a revered author, but it comes at a price!

If you could change the past, would you? If so, at what cost?

    Welcome again to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book!  

    KindleBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum.  As you browse KindleBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You've posted your book thread in the right place; this is just our standard welcome that we place in all book threads. :))

    A brief recap of our rules follows:

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information.  You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

    --We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

    --While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days.  Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

    --We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

    --Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.  For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
    Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

    All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum:,36.0.html.  Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

    Thanks for being part of KindleBoards!  Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
