Okay, so I’ve been working on this novel for over a decade now. You know, the epic one that tells the story just right and will take the world by storm
The overwhelming number of artists who follow my blog will understand completely. This Story … the characters and plots, footprints and un-muted cries urging me to write it all down. My heart pounds and my stomach churns in a weird mix of delight and dread, an aching deep within my core to share the visions flowing through my mind & heart.
So, Dear Reader, I apologize for falling off the wagon of consistency in keeping up this blog but this Story will wait no more. I’ve even attempted to distract myself with various other writing gigs, telling myself that I’m still creating. But the vestiges of times present and long past are screaming now, casting all else to the wind. I’m in the throes of Divine Inspiration. That I have to eat and take care of other life necessities is all that keeps me from the pen night & day.
Please bear with me for a while. There’s lots to read here already. Though much of it is in need of some editing, you might still find a few gems among the posts.
Know that I think of you everyday and send greetings of love from my heart. And that’s for real.
And a few of you will be requested to be test readers of the Story in the near future so keep a lookout in your inbox.
I plan to do some posts over the next few months but I’m really not sure if or when that will happen.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Here’s to all the best ahead.
To be continued …

I got a little twisted a couple weeks ago about which books were available for free download but Michael Baisden has now made an honest woman of me
I got it right this time for real tho! Mr. Baisden is giving away his most recent book, The Maintenance Man II, as a free download on Amazon Kindle.
Starting midnight tonight thru Saturday, April 6, you can download Maintenance Man II: Money, Politics & Sex: Everyone Has A Price at no cost. Another generous offer from MB as he prepares for the next chapter in his extraordinary career.
Many of you know that Michael Baisden’s popular radio show has been taken off the air but MB has been logging onto facebook and twitter each day to keep his listeners up-to-date on the happenings.
I had hoped to have a review of MB’s earlier giveaway, Maintenance Man I: Collector’s Edition, ready for you by now but some unexpected events and a few technical difficulties have kept me from giving the read my full attention. I do plan to sit with it soon.
His already huge fan base has grown in these 10 days since his last live show and I predict that will only continue. Honesty & integrity mean a lot and as MB “keeps it real”, people listen.
Remember, the free download of Maintenance Man II will be available at midnight tonight.
Thanks again, MB. Keep it comin!

Ok, I’ll admit that the last music video I posted wasn’t quite a “jam”. But it was the lyrics & clever graphics in Dedication to the Prez that impressed me so.
But I promise, this is a JAM! Fusion, hip hop group Karmacy, delivers lyrical skills, beats and rhyme in this music video released in 2006. It is a long time ago in today’s sound-bite society but it’s new to me! And the message about family, pain & desire is still pertinent today.
Parts are in English and parts are in Gujarati, the native language of Mohandas Gandhi and the talented group members. The lyrical flow between worlds never skips a beat ..
I loved it and learned a few things too which is always good
I think Karmacy got skills and I didn’t stop jammin even when I had to read the subtitles.
So, there’s my testimony. Check it out for yourself
