    Default My Second Novel

    Gentlemen,
    Whistling To Cairo, my second novel, was just published by Outskirts Press. Whistling To Cairo is a sweet and sentimental love story set in the concert music world. The novel is available from Outskirts Press or Amazon. I am pleased with how the book turned out. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks.

    Obie, have you done this in an audio book? From the video you narrated on ancient Assyria you have a rich and resonant tone, perfect for story telling.

    Thanks for the kind words, my friend. I would love to perform the book, especially since I spent 30 years in radio as announcer. I plan to inquire from the publisher about the possibility. Usually such undertaking is quite expensive, as many hours of studio time are required. We shall see. The novel will lend itself well to narration, as I write visually.

    Thank you, Pete. Both my novels, Will’s Music and now Whistling To Cairo, were joy to write. Most of the time I couldn’t wait to get to my desk and uncap my fountain pen. I have another book, Obie’s Opus, which is a lot fun to read. Obie’s Opus is a compilation of little stories and anecdotes about classical music and the great composers. In the meantime I am working on a book of stories and memories from the world of the Assyrians. The book is titled Musing With My Samovar, and I expect to finish it by summer. Ah, so much to love in life.

    Amazon eh? I'll check whether i can get it for my Kindle.

    I can't wait to read your books, are they girlie love stories or can I read them after my manly shave?

    I haven't read a book before where I can say I know the author.

    Gee, I wish I could write girly novels. For sure I would make some money. But no, this is a mature love story with a lot of classical music references. You might like. Enjoy.
