|"A DROP OF THE HARD STUFF - a
Sea Captain's recovery from alcoholism"
This autobiographical work takes us into the three worlds of Captain Peter Wright. His childhood world where oppressive Catholic discipline and bigotry fueled by his mother's marriage to a Protestant, instituted fear. His seafaring world of adventure while sailing as Mate and Master, and the dark world of alcoholism where he gradually withdrew into his private hell and ended his drinking on the streets of San Francisco in the company of the city's lost and homeless. Peter Wright says, "Writing this book evened out the playing field." Peter's humor and rigorous honesty will encourage and inspire. Available from B & N, Borders and Amazon in hardback at $32.99, soft-back at $22.99, and directly from the author at $25.00 hardback and $16.00 soft-back + shipping $1.75.

|Boob, A Story of Sex, Cancer & Stupidity is a retelling of The Thousand and One Nights: Kyra Copperfield has just received a possibly terminal breast cancer diagnosis when she is captured by a serial killer who promises to delay her demise if she amuses him by telling stories about herself. Kyra figures it’s a slow, painful death either way, but as she tells the story of her life, she regains the will to live and to escape. However, it is the stories themselves (surprisingly imbued with humor) that reveal the dilemma of life choices for modern women, particularly those who must come to terms with their alcoholism. Astute readers will pick up on a thinly veiled journey through the twelve steps. Read an excerpt and reviews: http://mysite.verizon.net/kdebv|
