Happy Birthday To Me!

Actually, my birthday was a few days ago, but this has been a great week. I am going to assume that it ties to the re-occurrence of the anniversary of my date of birth!

First things first. Montagnard just received two more great reviews, one on Amazon and a second on Facebook. Since they are short (but still sweet), I included them in their entirety below.


Highly recommend …

Just finished “Montagnard” by Darren Gilbertabsolutely loved it. It’s the second in his JD Cordell series. Starts with some Navy SEAL action in Africa then rapidly moves to a “can’t put it down” mode for the second half. Highly recommend supporting this independent author! It’s available on Amazon.

George Miller

George Miller is a writer, singer, songwriter I got acquainted with when I lived in Cary, NC. He is quite talented. Of course, I now live in Asheville, and I believe George has GTT, that’s “gone to Texas” for those of you who aren’t Louis L’amour fans.


The second review is a five-star review by Bruce Miller (no relation to George, at least that I am aware of). I had to reread it several times … it is the first time I’ve heard anything I’ve written called “literature.” I am still in shock!

a helluva a good tale

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Good literature not only tells a story but teaches as well. This is a book you won’t want to put down and will be sorry to see conclude.

And for the icing on the birthday cake …

Just this morning, I was the subject of a guest post by a wonderful poet named Gabriela Marie Milton, who single-handedly changed my mind about poetry. I purchased my first book of poetry after reading samples of her poems on her blog, and I am now actually reading another book of poetry. Who’d a thunk it?

Click here to check out the post, and while there, read some of her beautiful poems. Here is a link to the review I did on her book, Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings. It is available on Amazon.

So, as I celebrate the 39th Anniversary of my 21st birthday, I hope you will take a few minutes and check out some of my other blog posts by clicking here! And also, if you enjoy reading “literature,” check out my new novel, Montagnard, on Amazon.com! It’s getting really great reviews.
