Successful Day at The Twig!

CONDITIONAL's book signing at The Twig Bookshop in San Antonio's Pearl Brewery complex was a great success. Crowds of people attended the Saturday Farmers' Market and many of them browsed at The Twig afterward. A number of the browsers as well as several friends who came especially for the book signing bought signed copies of the book. A nice treat was that several also bought my prior novel, UNANNOUNCED. They're all heading for good summer reads!

After the book event, I had lunch at The Sandbar with a couple of friends. Excellent--a few oysters on the shell followed by the world's tallest crab cake sandwich, all with a very nice Pinot Grigio.

Thanks to everyone for making it a very nice day.

Bored? A Fun Saturday Is Coming Up!

This Saturday, July 28 can be more fun than you've ever imagined. The regular Saturday market at San Antonio's Pearl Brewery complex on E. Grayson St. is operating at summer hours. Come early and shop among the amazing offerings from area farmers and ranchers.

Then drop by The Twig Bookshop in the Pearl complex between 10 AM and 1 PM for George's discussion and signing of his new novel, CONDITIONAL. Have you noticed how greed can become a lethal weapon in the hands of powerful persons? Have you wondered what goes on behind closed doors in hospitals? This medical thriller pairs a physician and an FBI agent collaborating to resolve medical mayhem triggered by a sociopathic hospital CEO.

After the book signing, a great finale for your adventure would be lunch at one of The Pearl's fine restaurants. See you Saturday!

Another character--Hello, Wendell Robertson

Wendell is the third and final member of the hospital accreditation team at work in CONDITIONAL. He is a fifty-six year old hospital administrator, tall and lanky, almost Lincolnesque in appearance. He combs his salt-and-pepper hair straight back over his head with no part.

During the team's exit briefing "Wendell stretched his long-legged frame up from his chair to present a summary of his findings. His understated middle-American clothing underscored his down-to-earth personality: navy blue two-button suit, white shirt with a spread collar, an abstract patterned necktie."

"Wendell knew how to be diplomatic. Before joining The Joint Commission he had succeeded in a number of health care executive positions, including a stint as CEO of a sizable general hospital in Kansas City.  He took [Jonathan] by the arm. 'Hold on there, Doc. You just did a bang up job managing a tough survey--especially that son-of-a-bitch Sullivan. You've got plenty of time to get home. Let's all get a drink to celebrate the end of a bad week.'"
