Readers' Favorite Finalist and the Mob Museum!

 I have two big pieces of happy news to report!  The King of Casinos has just been listed as a FINALIST for a coveted Readers' Favorite Book Award.  This is a HUGE honor.  Established authors, big name publishing houses, and world renowned books compete in this contest and to be named a finalist is simply unheard of for a first-time author.

Aside from a piece of their $10,000 in cash prizes, if I win my category, I COULD be selected to be presented before the folks at Wind Dancer Films, giving the book a legitimate shot at becoming a movie.  Send lots of good mojo and well-wishes.  They announce the winners on September 1.

I am also very happy to announce that you can now find The King of Casinos on the shelves of the world famous MOB MUSEUM in Las Vegas.  I'll be speaking to their members in August and having the book there in advance of the appearance is very important.  If the book sells as well there as it does at the Neon Museum, I should have some good movement for my little book.

The research & collecting of photos and memorabilia from the El Rey Club never stops! Please contact me at 702-465-5604 or email me at if you have stories or memorabilia to share.
