Description

Thirty years ago, Harry Felix was one of the hottest writers in Hollywood. He created a very popular situation comedy, and he wrote a series of popular movies—he even won an Oscar for a screenplay he wrote. Sadly, Harry's career has been in the dump for years.

Early in the novel, Harry tries to sell a screenplay to movie studio executives. It is an action-comedy about Belinda, a beautiful and cunning woman who is the best field officer in the CIA.

After lunch, while strolling in a park, Harry is tackled by Belinda. Seconds later someone drops bombs near them. While Harry and Belinda try to figure out what is going on, the violence and the comic aspects of the story escalate. Soon Harry realizes that as he was trying to sell a story to Hollywood executives, the story was happening in real life. Now people in the story Harry created are trying to kill him.

As Harry wonders why Belinda has rushed to his aid, he realizes that to solve the problems before him, he must address issues from his past.

“Harry’s Story” is much more than a funny novel. It is one of those rare novels that is engaging and entertaining, stimulating and provocative.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon

 

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
