Hey guys!  Well, my first deadline for the release of my book has come and gone. “Early 2017” has passed and my book is still in the editing phase…The second editing phase.  Life has taken priority and has put the book a bit on the back burner for the moment but still very excited to release it.

I have changed the name and the subtitle for the moment.  Before, it was “The Doctor is Out.”  Then someone asked me if I was gay, and “coming out” meant, “out of the closet.”  “hmmm?” I thought.  Good point.  This is why we have third parties review our seemingly “genius” ideas.  I agreed, not about being gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that – see video), but that I should rethink the name.  

I have given it some thought and have come up with the title “A Bitter Pill” or “The Bitter Pill.” How a broken healthcare system inspired one doctor to make patients the priority again.

So, there you go.  It’s in progress. The cover is in process and have some great ideas.

There’s still a kindle giveaway for joining the mailing list.  See below:


Be well!
