Good news -- my second book of short essays, Pora Lot More Lore, has been published, and is available!
Now available in hardcover and e-book format -- e-reader not required -- simply download and read right on your PC!
As with Pora Lotta Lore, my first book, Pora Lot More Lore is published by Lulu Publishing, where it can be purchased online. To preview or purchase Pora Lot More Lore, go to my web site, http://mysite.verizon.net/resorzfk. You will also find lots of nostalgic pictures and links there, as well as a link to preview or purchase Pora Lotta Lore.
As in my previous book, Pora Lot More Lore consists of "forty fun, nostalgic, dorky and depressing short essay" on life as I've seen it through my eyes while growing up and living in Erie, Pennsylvania my entire life. Included are stories on school, childhood shenanigans, baseball, cruising chicks, Erie, special memories, personal trauma, and just plain having fun.
The essays are a bit longer than those in Pora Lotta Lore, but the prices is a bit lower ($19.68 plus tax and shipping), so you will be getting more for your money.
Below is a list of essays, and also a link to read the entire first essay, "The Duke of Dorkdom."
