About this project

I am a song writer, poet, performer, dreamer, and achiever just looking for a way to express myself and make my mark on the world. I have written my first book of short stories, which is currently listed on Amazon in Kindle format. It has always been my dream to be a well known author. I know that won't be something that happens overnight, but I am hoping to give it a "kickstart" by being able to have a physical book in a book store near you!

Based on a Bold Faced Lie is a collection of 5 short stories(*Please see below), all with slightly unique twists:

Pages of Life - Tired of civilization, Professor Lloyd Wagner takes a sabbatical, chronicling his journey. But when he returns, he finds everyone is gone. What happened to the people? How does he cope with his new found loneliness? Read his journal to find out!

Undead Love - When Paul is taken before his time, he is given the rare chance to be reunited with his fiancée. Sadly, discovering she has moved on, he blames love and plots a revenge that only a divine intervention can stop!

Illmoonati - What does the moon have to do with the secretive Illuminati? Eric, a determined teen, discovers the truth and sets out to uncover their plans!

Dark Matter - While attending his grandson’s funeral, Irwin meets a mysterious friend, and discovers the elusive meaning of life and how to deal with the loss of a loved one.

Censored - After being reunited with his long lost love of poetry, David uses his rhyming rhetoric to seduce a younger woman. Soon, he discovers that what happens behind closed doors happens behind closed doors for a humorous and slightly sexy reason!
 
***Two new stories will be added to the physical book***
 
Deja News - How does a shirt unwittingly save millions of lives? Detective Justin Taylor will find out as he stumbles into a scheme no one saw coming!
 
The Shadow of Sirena - Tom, a marine biologist, is tasked with solving a rash of unprovoked shark attacks terrorizing tourists. The truth he discovers is a tale that is still told today!
 
(Please check the FAQs for additional information, and feel free to ask me about anything I have not covered. Thank you!)

Risks and challenges

The only challenge I could possibly see, if at all, would be a small delay (one to two weeks tops) due to any unforseeable formating or printing delays.I am being proactive, doing what I can now to prevent any formatting issues.
