Although my new novel is not a sequel to either Parlor City Paradise or A Shot at Redemption, a character from one of those books does make a return appearance. I’m planning on posting an excerpt sometime over the next couple weeks. Once I do, I’d love to know who you think the return character will be and why.
I’ve been writing about football for a long time now. Over the years, NFL players, coaches, owners, general managers and officials have done a lot of boneheaded things. So, in addition to all the tailgate type treats, I’ll take you on an entertaining and comical stroll down memory lane. Do you remember when former Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson broke his arm in a hapless attempt to save a pizza? And how about that time former Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Jeff Reed beat up a towel dispenser just because he couldn’t dry his hands? I’m only scratching the surface here. As you kick back with a delicious Brunch Burger, some Super Supreme Mucho Macho Nachos or a big bowl of Mexican Corn Dip, you can also have a laugh at the good natured expense of those who play the game we all love so much. I can promise you now the term butt fumble will come up at least once.
And it appears James “Jimmy” McMillan III and I have something in common. We both tried to do something significant, resulting in two tiny blips on one big ass radar. Here’s the difference. Jimmy’s political aspirations are dead and buried. I, on the other hand, will continue to fight the good fight in the hopes that someday, somehow, someone will start giving a crap.
When I first began researching how to become a successful independently published author, it immediately became clear that it really can’t be done. Okay, that’s not entirely true but most self published authors, heck, most authors in general fail to achieve commercial success. That was the case even before publishing became so accessible; and now that book publishing is only slightly more complicated than registering for a Netflix account, you can take the old failure rate and multiply it by a few million and that’s probably low balling it.

I’ve been waiting a very long time to say this. Parlor City Paradise is done! I finished it just last week. And now that I’ve shared that glorious news, I must offer the following disclaimer. I still have one hell […]
For the second time this season and the third time overall, the National Football League scheduled an overseas game that kicked off at 9:30AM Eastern. As I indicated in a recent blog post, that particular time slot is a tad […]
As I near completion of the Parlor City Paradise manuscript—half a chapter and an epilogue are all that remain—I continue work on my 21 Sundays of Fantastic Football Food cookbook. That’s the reason for the Football Flashbacks I’ve been including […]
I’m sorry but I have nothing funny to say this week because Greg Hardy is back in the NFL. Last July, on the heels of so many other high profile domestic violence incidents, the then Pro Bowl defensive end for […]
The Detroit Lions are off to an 0 – 3 start which, in case you’re wondering, is not exactly an uncommon occurrence. As I continue to compile material for my 21 Sundays of Fantastic Football Food cookbook, I have a […]
