Welcome to my blog, a discussion of ships, writing, humor, and other things that interest me, and I hope, you. I sincerely appreciate your interest and thank you for stopping by.

Estrecho Mortal (Deadly Straits)


I’m pleased to announce that my terrifically talented translator, Pilar García Servert, has completed Deadly Straits. The ebook is now available under the title Estrecho Mortal.

If  you’re wondering why I’m announcing this on an English language site, the reasons are three-fold:
1. It occurred to me that some of you may know readers interested in the Spanish version. If so, please pass the word. 
2. This is the only site I’ve got. I hope to add foreign language support in time, but I’ve got a lot of balls in the air at the moment.
3. I don’t really know what the hell I’m doing, so I’m sort of making this up as I go along.  Marketing and promotion by trial and error.  Mostly error.

Any help is appreciated. The book is available from the following sites:

Estrecho Mortal on Amazon US
Estrecho Mortal on Amazon UK
Estrecho Mortal on Amazon Spain
Estrecho Mortal on Barnes & Noble
Estrecho Mortal on Kobo

Coming soon (but I’m not sure just when) to Apple iTunes stores worldwide.

    I think you should move the telegraph in your heading to FULL AHEAD, it looks like you’re really steaming along!

      Dear John,

      Thanks, mate! Very perceptive, by the way. You’re the first person that’s commented on the telegraph. I looked all over Hell’s Half Acre trying to find a picture of a decent looking telegraph in the Full Ahead position, but the one on the site masthead is the best I could do.

      Aren’t you glad to know you’re the first?

      Fair Winds & Following Seas,

    Deadly Straits was awesome and I am halfway thru Deadly Coast, which is just as good. You are an amazing writer and now one of my favorites, joining the ranks of WEB Griffin, Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy! What I like particually is your topics are so relevant to today’s world and the issues we face. I look forward to your next installment!

      Thanks, Mike! I’m glad you’re enjoying Deadly Coast, and I particularly thank you for taking the time to let me know. Writing is a pretty solitary pursuit and I appreciate the feedback more than I can say.
