Lucky You! Cyber Monday Deal

It’s beginning to look like Christmas with festive holiday lights, and jungle bells playing to welcome the season. The scents of the sweet and hot spiciness of cinnamon along with fresh apples welcome visitors to our home.

Like many, I’m decorating our Christmas tree today. It always seems to brighten my holiday mood and gives our cats a chance to entertain themselves with decorations. Tookie especially likes swatting gold balls. By Christmas Eve, most of the ornaments will be at the top of the tree, out of his reach.

Enough about my writing life, this blog post is about you, and super deals for your holiday shopping. If you enjoy romantic mysteries, check out my books below.

The Godfather: Next Generation

This year we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Godfather. And the scenes behind the story are as interesting as the novel and movie that followed.

The sixty-page novel by Mario Puzo became a hit with the movie: The Godfather. Who according to the Time Magazine, the author wrote as a way to get out of debt. (The Story of The Godfather. Time Special Edition Magazine, 2022).

Great casting with Marlon Brando as the Godfather, and directed by Frank Ford Coppola made his dreams come true. His screenplay was brought to the studio’s attention, and after research and revisions it was produced, and became a big screen hit.

The Godfather was a harbinger of the times, breaking through the post-war mentalities, and introducing a story the boomers could relate too. It was deep, dark, and relevant to a generation that wanted to speak for itself. The Godfather was the sign of the times, in more ways than being a mafia behind the scenes’ exploitation of made-men and their adversaries. It was fitting of the era.

As when the Godfather was written, it’s time for the changing of the guard, a new godfather, a tech-savvy, environmentally conscious, physically skilled, and pumped marksman, that today’s world can relate to.

Welcome to the next generation Godfather. Read “The Death of Me” today! (And, like Mario Puzo, I need to get out of debt. An Olympian task for certain.) Click the link below to read today!
