There has never been a decade quite like The Sixties...

I've been working on a couple of book videos and this one is now up on you tube, also on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com.

View my book trailer for 1964: Chasing a Dream.

Take a look and you might want to read 1964: Chasing a Dream which is available for FREE on Smashwords.com for a variety of e readers and also Barnes and Noble for your nook. It's available on Amazon for your kindle for just $2.99.



Wanna know what it's about? Here's a description:


If you want a nostalgic ride through the sixties, come along with Marlee Sweet as she travels to the southern states on a Trailways bus. Marlee meets sailor Joe in Halifax, Canada and is determined to visit him in his home town of New Orleans. But first she must make a stopover in New York to grow up a bit. From New Orleans to Mobile, to Montgomery then onward to Birmingham, Atlanta and finally Tennessee, it's a whirlwind of love, romance, adventure, tragedy, heartbreak, deceit and danger. From Joe's arms to a conniving Bobby Barnes, Marlee goes from girl to woman learning the ropes of life.
Experience the reaction in Albany, New York when the President is assassinated; watch the Beatles first visit to the US on the Ed Sullivan Show; stand in awe in front of the Mardi Gras Fountain in New Orleans, and take a stroll through the French Quarter with Marlee and Joe; visit the church on Dexter Avenue in Montgomery where Martin Luther King, Jr was once a pastor; Take a walk in an African-American's shoes from the old south; eat a hotdog from Chris' in Montgomery with Marlee and Bobby; visit Napoleon House in New Orleans and have a laugh while Marlee writes poetry and a poet reads it aloud; park on Beale Street in Memphis and marvel at the statue of W.C. Handy; gaze at the now demolished but once impressive San Carlos Hotel in Pensacola, Florida; look out over the amazing view in Birmingham, while observing the Vulcan statue; and last but not least, wonder where your next dollar is going to come from, and have your dreams put on hold.
Each day brings a new adventure and a new decision it seems. In the end it all comes down to choices, and the ones Marlee makes will change her life forever.


1964: Chasing a Dream is the first book in the Dream Series. Book Two is Facing Reality.


BTW, Facing Reality, Book Two is also available at Amazon, and Smashwords for just $2.99.


Marlee Sweet has travelled the south in search of love, only to find heartbreak and the end of her dream. Book two of the Dream Series takes Marlee back to Canada where she stays awhile, but after much turmoil and dissatisfaction, she heads back to the US of A.
Not quite sure where her life is going and with her dream in tatters, Marlee becomes a singer. She eventually marries Nick, but her nights with the band and on-the- road adventures are too much for him. He wants Marlee to quit and for them to have a family.
The marriage falls apart and Marlee is faced with a dilemma that takes her back to Nova Scotia. She eventually marries Sam and lives a peaceful, quiet existence...or so it seems, until Joe comes back in her life.

I will have a book trailer for Facing Reality up here soon. I'd appreciate any comments on the video on You Tube or on here.
