Fixed’ named finalist at Beverly Hills Book Awards

My book Fixed: Dope sacks, dye packs and the long welcome back is gaining traction in both sales and recognition. Really, this has been a pretty good week. First, the darkly comedic memoir about my early life as a drug addict, turned small-time bankrobber, turned prison inmate, turned respectable citizen was named as a finalist for the Beverly Hills Book Awards.


“Your book truly embodies the excellence that this award was created to celebrate,” the organizers wrote in their letter announcing the award. I’m sure nobody ever imagined saying that to me as I worked away in the prison woodshop years ago.

It also began to take off in sales, according to the book’s Amazon ranking. For the first time, the book cracked the top 50,000 in all books sold on Amazon. Many of my early readers and supporters helped elevate the book by sharing it on social media and writing reviews on Amazon. I have nearly 50 reviews of Fixed so far and counting (and most are pretty good, Thank the Lord!) all of which helps the book gain traction and sales.

Like I said, it’s been a pretty good week and for everyone who has bought a book, attended an event, posted a link and/or written a review, I can’t thank you enough. I hope these good times keep rolling.

For anyone interested in learning more about Fixed and how to help publicize, please drop me a line for our media kit. Can’t wait to hear from you.
