UPDATE: (January 25, 2017): I would like to make money as a novelist. I have no children to take care of, but I have no mate to take of the things that go undone when I'm writing. So I have to make choices.

That's what this campaign is about: being able to choose to finish what I started.

UPDATE (January 3, 2014):
Third excerpt.

UPDATE (December 20, 2013): Here's the second excerpt.

UPDATE (December 3, 2013): Here's a long version of the first excerpt, located at my new blog. The synopsis (below) has also been updated.

*****
Refugees from heartbreak, Arlen Tortelli, Deanna Desmond and Cordelia Otani form a clean bond of friendship and protection. But as they seek to strike revenge on one of the heartbreakers, unseen enemies seek to strike at one of them, endangering them all.

*****
ORIGINAL:

The story is set in Los Angeles and Fullerton.

Arlen's Harem is my second book. My first is Tale of the Tigers: Love is not a Game. Like Tale of the Tigers, Arlen's Harem will be a self-published effort in both ebook and paperback formats.

I have six chapters of Arlen's Harem finished, and plan on having at least fifteen chapters.

Here's what I need to get the new book finished within one month ....[see update posted on 12/29/2016].

Cover of and excerpt from Arlen's Harem coming very soon! Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Still writing. I won't reach my goal at the first time goal or the second one, but that won't stop me. It will just take me longer than planned.

I got so tired of the character prototype photos which I didn't pick, that I finally replaced it with a pic of me from several years and many pairs of glasses ago. That one is temporary, too.

I'm looking for a nice Southern California scenery pic--Downtown LA, Chinatown, OC; settings of Arlen's Harem.

As the owner of a project, did you ever ask one of your assistants to perform a task, tell him what you want, then have him ignore you and perform the task the way *he* wanted? That's what happened when a former assistant picked out the stock photos for this campaign.

Well, that assistant is gone and, soon, I will have a new campaign photo.
