Running With Monkeys. Last Day in Kindlescout!


This is it! Last chance to nominate this story in Kindlescout. Running With Monkeys is a story about one man coming home from WW2 to a cold-water flat. It’s a story of friends who have witnessed the great European campaign and lived through it without a scratch only to find they are behind the eight-ball at home. It’s a love story. Jules and Isbe meet and he knows he has a lot to do to be worthy of a girl like her.

Running With Monkeys. Three Days Left in Kindlescout!


You have three days left in which to nominate Running With Monkeys for publication in Amazon’s Kindlescout program. If this book is selected, you get a free copy. If not selected, I will publish it immediately in ebook and paper. Running With Monkeys is the story of three returning veterans of WW2–Chimp, Baboon, and Gorilla. They are young men who have lived through the European campaign, the great American push from D-Day to the liberation of Berlin. They are tough, reckless, and entirely loveable.

Four Days Left for My Book, Running With Monkeys, in Kindlescout!

I told myself, Girl, when that Kindlescout program is over on December 18th, you better have your Christmas shopping done!

Oh, I’ll be on Amazon today. But not to check my Kindlescout campaign. I’ll be finishing up my list, checking it twice and all that! But you now…if you haven’t voted for this book, will you do so please? The inspiration for my main character, Jules, is a remarkable person. This weekend a rather large group of us are gathering at his home to read aloud a history of the Battle of the Bulge. He went through it and describes it so vividly he brings you there with him. We want to honor him by taking the historical journey together.

Here is where you can vote. And many thanks.

Five Days to Go in Kindlescout!

Five days to go and what will Santa have in his bag for me? I am open to being surprised! My book, Running With Monkeys is in the Kindlescout line-up, awaiting your nomination for publication. If you do that, I have personally contacted the head elf at the Northpole and Winkie will be glad to fill your stocking with something extra special on my behalf. Now that’s clout! Unfortunately, Winkie has no pull with Kindlescout so I need you!

Here’s where to vote:



Six Days to Go in Kindlescout!


I’m asking for your nomination for my book Running With Monkeys. It’s a love story, a man’s story, a postwar story about a man named Jules and his two buddies, the monkeys, and what happens after they come home from the war. From D-Day 3 to the Battle of the Bulges, these three have been in on the European campaign that liberated Europe. But once home they find it’s hard to get a decent job and the guys that didn’t fight have nice cars and are well established in the peacetime world.

Seven Days to Go in Kindlescout, Running With Monkeys!


WW2 had a great influence on Jazz music. In Running With Monkeys, hero Jules and heroine Isbe fall under love’s spell in a Jazz club called Shiney’s.

Just like Jazz comforted the soldiers abroad, it motivated the people at home. And interestingly enough, by contrast, Hitler banned Jazz and swing music from Germany in 1939.

Yet one type of music resonated between those opposing life views. During the Battle of the Bulges, the same Christmas music could be heard playing from both sides of the battle.

Running With Monkeys is up for a publishing contract in Amazon’s Kindlescout. Your nomination is an important factor in the book being selected. So please vote. If selected, you will receive a free copy of RWM.
