The venerable Midwest Book Review published a review of A Man Too Old for a Place Too Far in their online book review magazine “Small Press Bookwatch” in April 2018.
They categorized A Man Too Old under the Fantasy/SciFi heading and had this to say about it:
“Critique: A unique, entertaining, and deftly crafted novel by an author with a genuine gift for imaginative and engaging storytelling, “A Man Too Old for a Place Too Far” is an especially and unreservedly recommended addition to community library collections. It should be noted for personal reading lists that “A Man Too Old for a Place Too Far” is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $3.99).”

My Kindle Scout campaign for book one of my brand new trilogy ends on December 1. If you haven’t nominated it yet, please head over to the site and give it a look.
If you like what you see, I’d be honored to receive your nomination which will bring me one step closer to a publishing deal with Amazon. It costs you nothing, but if the campaign succeeds, you’ll receive a early-release copy of the novel.
Thanks for your support. Kindle Scout Campaign Here!
I used to think I would never write a series or a trilogy. I liked closure. I liked an entire world or experience to be contained in one complete story. I hated cliff-hangers. (Marvel movies, really? Those after credit snippets were clever marketing ploys.) I hated marketing ploys. So I wrote five standalone novels. I was satisfied.
Then I started writing my sixth novel. It was different on many levels, but I still thought it would be a standalone novel until I finished it. Suddenly I had a strange feeling: it didn’t feel finished. There was more to tell. More to discover. I realized at that moment that I had never written a sequel or series because I had previously not had the right story.
Now I do, and I’m proud to soon be releasing book one of The Forgotten Child Trilogy: A Man Too Old for a Place Too Far.
It’s on Kindle Scout until the December 1. It could use your nomination. Please use this KINDLE SCOUT LINK and read the first couple chapters of it. And if you like it, please nominate it!

This novel is book 1 of my brand new and first ever series – The Forgotten Child Trilogy. I put my heart and 22 months into this one. It’s an absolute blast. At least it was writing it, and I hope it is reading it as well.
