My horror/science fiction/mystery novel, TRISOMY XXI, published by World Castle Publishing, will be released June 6th, 2016, and is available now in paperback and eBook on Amazon.com at www.amzn.com/1629894443, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold.
Support a fellow Brahma by purchasing my book, and I will be more than happy to autograph your copy of TRISOMY XXI at our upcoming 50th High School Reunion! I will be donating royalties that I receive from book sales to the Global Down Syndrome Foundation--a wonderful, non-profit charity that helps people with Down Syndrome and their families.
I recently attended the Horror Writers Association Meeting (StokerCon2016) in Las Vegas, and met with three Hollywood Movie Producers to discuss the possibility of turning TRISOMY XXI into a feature-length motion picture (book-to-film adaptation). Time will only tell, so stay tuned and I will keep you posted!

Here is my author profile:
G.A. Minton has been an ardent fan of horror and sci-fi his entire life. Growing up as an Air Force brat, he’s lived in different cities across the U.S., thus allowing him to observe a variety of cultures. When he isn’t writing, you can usually find him out on the golf course, chasing after a little white ball. His other hobbies include reading, traveling, fishing, snorkeling, working out, listening to hard rock music, and watching great movies. He has a wife, a son and daughter, and two Bengal cats.
Weirdly enough, it was only after G.A. was rear-ended by a drunk driver and suffered a closed-head injury, that he developed a newfound passion for writing (known as Acquired Savant Syndrome - a true story, even though it sounds like a fictitious plot for a horror novel). He pens his novels freestyle, almost in a stream of consciousness, relying on no outlines, formats, or templates for assistance—the narrative is able to flow freely from his imagination, ending up with a storyline that contains an ordered sequence of events. One might surmise that the damaged neurons in his frontal cortex had rearranged themselves into a different pattern, thereby enhancing the creative elements in his brain. Who knows? Stranger things have happened! Currently, G.A. is in the process of completing his second novel, a dark, supernatural tale of horror that takes Good vs. Evil to a whole new level!

So sorry to hear about the recent passing of Donny Jellison. He was a great guy, and will be missed by many. I lost my Mom, age 92, the day before Donny died, so this has been a very sad week for me. RIP, Donny.

Fellow Brahmas, Class of '67,

I'm looking forward to seeing some of my "old" classmates at our upcoming 50th reunion--hopefully, we'll have a good turnout! Don't forget to bring your copy of my sci-fi/horror novel, TRISOMY XXI by G.A. Minton, and I'll be more than happy to autograph it (you can order your copy of this award-winning tale on my Amazon Books author website at www.amzn.com/1629894443 (Paperback), or at www.amzn.com/B01D3OSZ38 (Kindle/eBook). I donate all of the royalties received from book sales of TRISOMY XXI to the Global Down Syndrome Foundation--a wonderful, non-profit charity that helps people with Down Syndrome and their families. As an update, TRISOMY XXI is still being considered as a candidate for a feature-length motion picture (book-to-film adaptation), and it has won 6 major book awards thus far.Time will only tell, so please wish me luck. My second horror novel, ANTITHEUS, which is already a Royal Palms Literary Award Finalist, is scheduled to be released in October of 2017, in time for a great Halloween read!

Best wishes,

G.A. (Greg) Minton

Hi, Bob!
Long time, no see. Hope you and your family are doing well. Looks like you and I are the only surviving roommates left from our Chapparel Apartment UT freshman days! Are you planning on attending our 50th High School Reunion? I made it to the 10th and the 40th, and will try to make it to this upcoming half-century gathering. What have you been up to for the last 4-5 decades?
Best wishes,
Greg
