To My Friends at WordPress:
I’ve been blogging at WordPress now for eight years. My location is Jalesy55.wordpress.com. My first blog was on John Milton’s writing of the Areopagitica back in the 1640’s. Milton’s tract, on freedom of the press, was as big a milestone in the development of journalism as the telegraph would be in the mid-1800’s.
Our most recent revolutionizing of journalism has been in the development of blogging. Our blogging, in turn, is also changing the business of book publishing.
I have turned my hand to legal fiction. In June, my work A Lawyer’s Casebook will go up sale on Amazon Kindle. It comprises a novella, White Hats, and a number of short stories, all occurring in the fictional upstate New York city of Crotona. A chapter from White Hats was posted on my blog about a month ago.
But before the book goes up for sale, I will provide free samples to fellow bloggers, writers, readers, followers and members of the WordPress community. Simply e-mail me at Jalesy@twcny.rr.com, and I will e-mail you a copy of the book. Reviews are welcome.
Thanks, and keep writing.
