Here is another example of John's writing. This article was published in ComputorEdge in 1989. Some of the references are a bit dated but the concepts still apply almost 25 years later.
The novel Doing the E.T. Tango: Dancing with the Universe takes place in the northwest corner of Wyoming. This area is called the Big Horn Basin. While the focus of the novel is on Ellen, Bill, Tim and Charlie in their search for alien artifacts, this area of Wyoming is a rural area that provides a remote backdrop for the story.
Here is another chapter from John's book. In this chapter Ellen's team is attempting to get rid of the BLM agent surveying their land. Ellen, Bill and Tim have some fun annoying the BLM agent John Brady while they pretend to look for fossils. In one more week I will post Chapter 16, which describes how the group will have to deal with drones flown by the military around the area. And only two more weeks until the book is released on Amazon and you can find out what happened with Ellen, Bill, Tim and Charlie in their search.
Ellen Goodwin's team needed a gadget guy to help them get into area 47. Bill Regal's friend, Tim Morrison, provided the expertise and hardware needed to accomplish that task. Here is a short introduction to Tim. On November 26th read about Tim and his role in helping to look for alien artifacts.
Most of the action for the book Doing the E.T. Tango: Dancing with the Universe takes place in the northwest portion of Wyoming. The book tells the story of a group trying to break into an Army base to recover proof of an alien landing and the government cover-up. As far as I know, there is no secret base and no alien spaceships or bodies hidden out in the far corners of Wyoming. However, there are legends of alien visitors, UFO's and other mysterious beings.
Many years ago John submitted articles to a local magazine called "Computer Edge". One of the articles that was accepted and paid for was Please... Don't Feed the Computer. The article was an early glimpse into John's quirky humor. I'd like to share this article so that readers can get another taste of his writing style.
The main characters, Bill Regal and Ellen Goodwin were introduced in the first chapter of the book but they aren't the only ones trying to find aliens. The following is a short description of Charlie Ruffin, a software developer/hacker who joins the team in their quest for proof of alien life.
Since John's Book Doing the E.T. Tango: Dancing with the Universe is his first published book we want to provide some content to allow readers to decide if the book is a good fit for their interests. Over the next few weeks we will be publishing chapters from the book, information about the the area around where the story takes place and some early samples of John's writing. To get things started, here is Chapter 1 Looking for Bill.
We are proud to announce the release date of November 26, 2014 for the eBook, Doing the E.T. Tango: Dancing with the Universe. It has been a long learning experience for both of us, creating, editing and self publishing a book. Our journey continues since we want to publish a print version and expand our distribution from Amazon to other websites and eventually book stores. This release is the first step in our publishing and marketing efforts and we would like to ask your help in letting others know about this book.
I have noticed comments about the quality, or lack thereof, of posts on Facebook. Over time I have used a combination of Facebook and browser tools to improve the quality of posts I see in my Facebook Newsfeed. This is the first article, which describes how you see posts that you want instead of what Facebook, and their advertisers want you to see. I know that I get tired of seeing posts with links to articles such as “A List Of 21 Things That We Want You To Scan Over While We Display Ads On The Side!!” or “Take This Quiz To Find Out What Kind Of Advertising We Should Push Out To You.” The information in this article is current as of August 2014.
