More coming soon

I'm awaiting the final edit for the newest in the Brier Hospital Series, The Plague Within. My wife, Dorlis loves this novel and can't wait until it's out.

I'm awaiting the proof of my first non-fiction book, I Love MT Doctor, But...
It's a humorous book on a serious subject, patients and their physicians.

This is the blurb I'll be using in promotion:

You have questions for your physician, but don’t ask them?
Your physician has questions for you, but he/she doesn’t ask them.
That’s one hell of a way to run an airline, a railroad, a government, or a medical practice.
Fault is besides the point, but difficult or painful questions unasked or unanswered threatens your health and compromises the physician’s ability to help.
You have something that you want to confide to your physician, but you don’t. You sigh with relief when he/she doesn’t ask.
You’re a physician and you need the answers to questions that might make your patient uncomfortable. You’re relieved when he/she doesn’t ask or you run out of time.
Patients and physicians are limited in their ability to predict which questions will be unwelcome and you might be surprised by the response.
If it’s important, ask.
I Love My Doctor, But… empowers patients and their physicians and offers common sense answers to important questions.
The book deals with important issues and makes specific suggestions about:
1.     Malpractice
2.     How much care is enough
3.     Matching patient and physician
4.     Finding a physician
5.     Online information
6.     Getting along with your physician
7.     Take away suggestions
8.     When to go to the emergency room
9.     Glossaries: medical terminology and medical specialists
