I wish the very best of holidays to all my friends and readers.  You give me encouragement – you help me find reason to keep exploring, keep moving forward — there are no words that adequately express my thanks.


well – believe it or not – I got there…

Book is out!  If you go to amazon and search
michael’s row mb krueger
you’ll see it!
Word of warning – my original Kindle edition is still there too – trying to kill it, but haven’t succeeded yet.  It was a first draft thing – not complete, baaaad layout – no editing…
ANYhoo – the good copies are there:

just in time for Christmas

“Michael’s Row” has passed it’s last hurdle.  It will appear at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon within the next two weeks.  I’ll post a note when it’s there – but you can start getting your pocketbook/wallet ready, lol.

Actually an “up” time.  Christmas is looking festive for a change!

fresh inspiration

one.jpg her eyes scanned the horizon
   hope against hope
he had promised to return
     if indeed he returned
   by the seventh of the month
two days hence now
  but still she watched
though the winds chilled
  and skies turned grey
     at the turn of the season
she watched
  wishing memories of him
    could be washed away
      as easily as the sand
          from her toes

summer ends

and soon i’ll be 63.  63.  can’t comprehend it.  until i stand, or sit, lie down, get up … then my body all too well can comprehend my age.  scream my age.

on the “up” side of life – my novel just went into cover design.  release in maybe four to six weeks?

busy, busy, busy

summer should be a time of fun and relaxation.
summer is when everyone at works takes their vacations, causing those of us who remain to work twice (thrice?) as hard for no extra compensation.  yes, i have vacation time available, and yes, i get to take it.  doesn’t help the rest of the time when i’m here.

depression runs rampant this time of year.  i don’t like the heat – i don’t like the humidity.  i will be happy when the temperature starts dropping.

on the “brighter side of life” – my book has made it thru editing and is now in page layout.  things do move forward.

right now, i’m holding on for the seventeenth of September – for my “vacation” (read time at home doing chores)
