And a big welcome to all new subscribers! I appreciate your interest in my work, and I hope you'll find something
of interest in this newsletter. And stay tuned for next month's newsletter. I have a gift planned for my loyal
But, let's first look back to a busy month. I've been working hard on the
sequence. First of all, the second installment, , is now available from the usual channels. It's a bit different to the first, Murder,
Plain and Simple , and tells the story of a washed out doctor on an interplanetary luxury cruiser who is tasked
with solving a murder. Forced to
Meanwhile, I've been getting the third installment,
Cima Peak, ready for publication, working with my
copy editor and proofreader to polish the manuscript to perfection and with my cover designer to make it look
pretty too. All the while, I was also working on story 4, The Algorithm, and 5, Eddy, and right
now I'm working on number 6, DingDong by Zumee. At times, it felt like juggling wild cats.
One thing that I've neglected to do is invest some proper time in marketing. I'd like to create some buzz around
the first installment of the
sequence, but to do so I need more reviews. So, if you have read (and if you haven't, get your free copy right away), I would really appreciate your honest
review on Forced to

any of the other platforms.
As an independent author, I don't have the benefit of a dedicated marketing team pushing my work under the noses
of thousands of readers. It's all up to me to make that happen. And reviews help a lot. First of all, they tell
the algorithms that decide what works to show that my work is worth showing. Second, having at least five to ten
reviews will help me unlock additional channels to promote my work, such as book distribution lists.
So if you have a minute, you would really help me out with a review.

With the passing of Dr. Lonnie Smith, age 79, on 28 September 2021, the world has lost a legend on the Hammond
B3. Self-proclaimed graduate in 'Groovology', Smith has been a prolific musician and a true master of his
instrument (despite being unable to read notes). He started his career playing in the bands of George Benson and
Lou Donaldson, both great artists in and of themselves. While most known for his jazz records, he also played
with soul artists such as Gladys Knight, Etta James and Marvin Gaye.
His last album, Breathe, contains live recordings made on his 75th birthday and two duets with Iggy Pop. Smith
is playing with his usual fervor, grooving along and then, when you least expect it, exploding in a magnificent
and exuberant solo that hits you deep in your soul.
So long and thanks for all the great music.
