“DEPUTY” 35 years as a deputy sheriff from upstate NY to LA is out and the reviews have been wonderful. As an indie writer you have to wear three hats which means three separate jobs. The writer, publisher, and marketing director. Even though I worked for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for 30 years, I was served with a cease and desist order regarding their copyrighted image of the Sheriff’s badge. In order to us the image on my cover I would need licensing permission. To escape the hassle, I changed the image. I am writing the new Sheriff who I know personally and requesting permission to use the image. Right now my focus is on marketing the book and getting the signed paperbacks out to those who requested them. If you want a signed copy of the paperback click here.
