How to Buy My Book

Buying my book is as simple as dropping me an email at asm1976@comcast.net.

“Odric the Bold” will be $10 a copy, and payment will be via PayPal. I am, of course, the very soul of discretion and PayPal is a very safe, secure payment method.

Of course, you could also buy on Amazon, but I’d rather cut out the middlemen.


Welcome to the new and (I hope) improved blog!

But what’s going on? Why the new look? What happened? cry the concerned readers, all two of them.

Long and short of it: I am now a published author, and I want to use this blog to promote and publicize my book and the ones I hope will follow it!

The book is called “Odric the Bold.” Odric is a little blind boy who lives in a once-upon-a-time type place called Cranberry Valley. When bad luck and bad weather causes the loss of the village’s blue gourd crop, it looks like Cranberry Valley will have to cancel its popular Blue Gourd Festival. There’s a good chance that wild-growing blue gourds can be found at the top of the High Forest, but CV’s adults all have some excuse or other for not going up there to find out.

Odric impulsively decides to make a solo trip up to the top of the forest to find the gourds, and with the help of a carved wooden map, his own judicious use of his other senses, and the help of some talking animals along the way, (because those are the only kind of animal you meet on such a trip) our hero has every intention of coming home with his pack full of blue gourd goodness.

Will he succeed? What’s it like traveling in the forest without sight? What do skunks really think of us humans?

The only way to find out is to READ THE BOOK!
