*** So, time to let you all know the project I’ve been working on and am truly excited about! Since 1993, I wanted to do something about my stories from my time at Manhattan College. I’m aware that everybody has stories, but those who were there know that my adventures were far from normal! So, as I continue to get advice from authors and speak to publishers, look for news on an upcoming collection of stories that will not only interest you, but will hit every emotion possible!
Take a trip back to 1990 and join the stories of a naïve, innocent, Morrissey obsessed, outspoken, stubborn, liberal, Jewish Baltimore native who seeks adventure, romance and fame at a very Irish Catholic college in New York! If being different wasn’t hard enough, a few very controversial articles in the school paper and a “take no prisoners” college radio show give him more than enough excitement, adventure and heartache than he could imagine!
You’ll be in the middle of his roommate and dorm issues, battles with campus groups, love gone wrong and much more. Expect to laugh, cry, gasp, smile and want more!
A few answers to questions people have asked:
1- Do you have a title?
The pending title is “Manhattan Bronx; Riverdale.”
2- Are the stories real or made up?
These are actual real events based “loosely” on my time there. Some details have been altered.
3- What if I’m involved in a story and don’t want to be in the book?
Outside famous people, I have changed every name completely except mine. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.
4- What made you decide to publish your story?
I feel like I’ve become the “keeper of the stories” for a lot of people. This was an amazing, crazy time. Looking back is fascinating.
5- What is the timeline?
1990-1993. The birth of grunge!
6- I have a great story or memory you should include- can I remind you?
Sure, d/m me or email me at email@example.com
7- Is there a website or social media page?
Manhattan Bronx Riverdale is active on Face book. I will most likely do the same for Twitter soon.
8- Will the stories be sad, happy, funny or painful?
I’m nearing the end of a first rough draft and excited to where this is going! Please reach out with any questions, and if you know a publisher who wants to grab this before somebody else does, reach out!! Spread the word, go on the pages- and wait for news!
Back to work- Love you all!
