EVERYONE WANTS TO BE AN AUTHOR
Hi, all my friends and followers. Thank you all for your support. If you've read "Bridgetown High" and enjoyed it please "share", "like", and "tweet" this blog entry.
As a friend and follower, I'm going to ask you to try an experiment with me.
I'm sure you would like to see my book succeed in the marketplace, so I figure if everyone of you share, like, and/or tweet, all of your "friends" on Facebook and Twitter will see this and respond in kind. If everyone does this, there's no stopping the success. Just go to the bottom of this page and click on "share."
For those of you who haven't read it yet, here is a synopsis:
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?
Yes, it's about a teenage boy, but I've found my largest audience is with adults who lived in the 1960s.
