Shout Out
New novel published by Rocking Horse Publishing is now available on Amazon in both ebook and print editions. The book, Elixir of the Incas, is a historical novel set in New York’s entertainment milieu in the 1890s. Here’s the publisher’s quote from the book’s back cover:

“Billy Brannigan, handsome, brash and savvy, arrives in New York in 1893. He seeks stardom on the gas-lit stages of New York’s bawdy music halls and vaudeville theaters after spending years honing his skills and learning to pedal the cure-all medicine, Elixir of the Incas. When his partner, Daniel, arrives, Billy begins his quest for fame and fortune. The duo mix with talented acts, willing showgirls, colorful songwriters, and meet many of the famous personalities of the fabulous Gilded Age (John L. Sullivan, Victor Herbert and Tony Pastor among others). Each finds love but discovers that love, like life, seldom follows the path chosen. And when those paths diverge, their friendship comes crashing to a halt.”

It’s Billy’s relentless pursuit of fame, money and respect that spurs him on to success although the cost is great—lost love, failed friendship, intense personal conflict, even a murder charge. But that’s the rest of the story.
