Death by Facebook ~ the Paraglider

Here, I get a chance to sit in the famous Larry's paraglider, sans the wing.

The engine on this beast was so finely tuned and balanced that you could drink a full cup of hot coffee while sitting in it.  Amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book surprised me!March 28, 2011
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First, by way of full disclosure, I must admit that the author and I were friends in high school. In fact, Facebook is the means by which we have rekindled our friendship. I even have the honor of one of my silly status posts being quoted in the book.
That being said, I kind of expected a light-hearted, quirky story. I was surprised to instead read a book that worked on so many different levels and contained a lot of depth. Many things are going on here and the pace is, at times, riveting. Death by Facebook is a crime drama, a story about youthful angst, aging hippies in touch with Mother Earth, earthquakes, tsunamis, a major volcano eruption, an action thriller and a great story of emotional awakening and redemption; all on the Big Island of Hawaii. Plus, I don't remember the last time I read a book with first person narrative being delivered by a recently deceased person (who didn't seem at all upset about it). I highly recommend it!

Kapoho Village (Death by Facebook)

Kapoho, on the Big Island of Hawaii stars in my latest novel, Death by Facebook.

Here, in 1960 an eruption event occurred that inspired the one in my story.  Both outcomes are similar, except possibly for the tsunami in the story.

This image, from Wikipedia, shows one lone headstone in a cemetery that manged to remain standing as the lava flowed around it.  Now cooled for decades, the lava protects it.

Another Great Review!

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative, fun, quirky story set on the Big Island of HawaiiMarch 22, 2011
This review is from: Death by Facebook (Paperback)
It is a wildly inventive story about love, madness, friendship, hippies, tsunamis, murder and the great hereafter all in a vivid tropical setting. It is funny, fascinating and touching. If you have never been to the Big Island, this book will make you want to go. If you have been there, this will make you feel like you have returned. The perfect book for a hammock and a tall drink.

Just finished Death by Facebook... AWESOME Read man! I loved the story. When they make the movie I want Sean Connery to play that extremely cool character Pat Kemp!!! 
Great mix of Hawaii, Volcanos, great characters and a really interesting and captivating story line.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put this one downMarch 14, 2011

This review is from: Death by Facebook (Kindle Edition)
It seems to me that his writing has something for everyone. There is great intrigue,action, information, description, movement, feeling,depth, philosophy, physics and meta-physics to capture anyone's attention. And all written in an easy, uncluttered flow that left me feeling like I am a local. Truly a great book for our times. I could hardly wait to read it all as I went along, and didn't want it to end also.

Death by Facebook

Just published to Kindle today!


What if your friends and family, co-workers and your boss first heard you were dead, via Facebook?  Would they believe it?  What if you were not the one to post that status update?

This fast paced adventure races those question through the jungles of Volcano Village Hawaii and to the eventual answers.  

Rated PG-13 for mature subjects.
