Bridgetown High Pre-Order Now Available on Amazon!


BRIDGETOWN HIGH, by Paul W. West is NOW AVAILABLE for Pre-Order on Amazon!!

Seventeen year old Mark Wilkerson has no memory of the fiery crash that killed his family on the Carquinez Bridge…

Living with his grandmother and burdened with guilt, Mark vows to find the hit-and-run driver and take his revenge. The only detail he remembers is round taillights swerving in front of his family’s car, and he’s shocked when he notices the car of the high school’s bully, Jeff Marino, has identical taillights—and a suspicious dent.

Now he wants revenge more than ever…

Jeff believes Mark is an anti-Vietnam War activist like his cousin Gary—and despises him for it. To make matters worse, when Jeff’s girlfriend Genie Lombardi dumps him for Mark, it kicks Jeff’s hatred for him to a dangerous new level.

Lies and threats escalate, until drugs and a shocking death send Jeff over the edge, and his campaign to get Genie back any way he can turns violent.

When Mark’s memory begins to return, it leads to a terrifying confrontation.

Will he finally prove the identity of the guilty driver? Or will he and Genie become one more tragedy associated with the Carquinez Bridge?

Hey gang. I've been gone on a long needed vacation, but haven't forgotten you, all my faithful followers. I've been working on a new blog site and a new web page for my novel BRIDGETOWN HIGH. It's exciting and you'll see it as soon as it's ready.

In the meantime, keep in mind my Bridgetown High goes on pre-order this Saturday, Sep 26, and it goes live Oct 06.

“Is revenge truly justice… 
Or just a sure path to more tragedy…”
Read about it in:

releases Oct 6th!

It's been a hectic past few weeks, largely due to getting everything together for publication of my novel. I finally got the dedication and acknowledgments put together and sent it in to Limitless Publishing for inclusion in my book. Between working full time, keeping up with normal household duties, gardening, and so forth I've hardly had a chance to breath. I have to admit, I've probably been something of a pain to Limitless, they have been very nice, working with me to iron out all my issues.

Next, I need to review a pdf version of my book and iron out any issues I see with formatting, spelling, punctuation, etc., before it goes to print, After that is the pre-publication sale on Sep 26 where all you faithful followers can order a copy or two (or more if you want) ahead of actual publication (they call it "live") due to happen on Oct 6.

A few days ago, a friend of mine I went to high school with contacted me. He is the Master of Ceremonies at our upcoming 50th Class Reunion. I hadn't heard from him since we graduated, so I was a huge surprise, and great to hear from him. Then, he dropped a bomb on me: he wants to honor me and my novel. Wow! That's great. He wants to have several copies of my book available for sale at the reunion party.

You see, Bridgetown High is set in John Swett High School in Crockett, California.

Then, I had to break the bad part of the news, my book won't be available for the reunion. The reunion is being held on Oct 3, three days before the live publication date.


Well, I have a lot of my old friends on Facebook, so I hope they will still purchase a copy or two (or more as they wish).

So, hang in there, all you faithful followers. The ride isn't over yet.

Coming soon! Bridgetown High is going on pre-sale order from Amazon Sep 26, and going live Oct 6. From all the "buzz" surrounding this book, I think it could sell out fast.

Please share this with all your friends and family.

What d'ya think? If you haven't seen it before, this is the cover for my novel Bridgetown High. Is this cool or what? I think if you click on the picture it will enlarge???

Ever since I got this cover this week has been exciting. My newest granddaughter is growing and doing well. I can't wait for an excuse to see her again. It's a bit of a drive.

Oh, yeah. You (all my faithful followers) probably want to read about my novel, beyond what I said about the book cover.

My son is busy creating a new website for my novel and a new blog for me. I've also been searching around trying to find ways to market it.

Limitless Publishing suggested I have a cover-reveal to show off the book cover (above). I guess you could say I'm doing that kind of piecemeal.

Next, is the pre-sale goes live September 26, so all you faithful followers can pre-order it so it will come to you as soon as it goes live. I'm hoping I can help set the price of the pre-ordered books to give you faithful followers a discount. Not sure if I can do this, but I'll try.

Going live will be October 6. So if you pre-ordered or can get on Amazon the day it goes live, you should be able to get it that same day.

I'm excited to see the actual book, hold it in my hands. Then, I can resume work on my next novel GERTA!.
