On July 21st, I launched my fifth full-length work of fiction, Whizzers. I spent years working on about the first 30% of the novel, then burned through the remaining 70% from late 2018 through March 2019.

So now it’s the thing on the front burner. When I finished my third novel, Miles of Files, I knew that Whizzers had to be next. Frankly, it’s the best novel I’ve ever written, and I’m thrilled with how it came out.

It’s a funny thing, though: I don’t really like to talk about it! Thankfully, I don’t have to, because reviews are coming in every day.

What I wrote about it is the blurb. It reads as follows:

A recovering alcoholic, Mike, discovers his six-year-old cousin, David, travels through time as a whizzer to bring comfort to those in need. Mike soon finds himself along for the ride, and while he gets the opportunity to bring solace to some of his greatest heroes, he must also confront his own greatest demons.

As for reviews, here’s a sample of what people are saying:

“This is in my top 5 reads so far this year. It really moved me…and I’ll read it again. Grab it!” – Amazon review

“Sahno does a fantastic job of distinguishing voices…truly a great book.” – Quoth the Writer

“I’m blown away. This is a great read. Pick it up. I promise it’s worth your time.” – Amazon review

Whizzers is something special. This novel is my most autobiographical work by far. Thankfully, though, that hasn’t hurt the book. In fact, it actually hit the #9 spot on Amazon’s Hot New Releases in Metaphysical & Visionary Fiction list.

Lovers In A Dangerous Time

This past weekend, I did what a lot of us are doing nowadays—frittered some time away on Facebook. I'm doing one of those "post the cover of an album you love" every day for a week or whatever, and Sunday's pick was Bruce Cockburn's Stealing Fire, which featured the...

Short Story Contest

As we head into September, I'm struck by how quickly this year has flown by. I have a radio interview in two days and a book fair next month, and I'm sure there will be much more happening as I go full bore with marketing campaigns for Miles of Files, Jana, and...

The Power of an Attorney

Last week I missed the deadline to post my Monday blog, then missed any other opportunity through the rest of the week. The reason? I'm power of attorney for my mother, who took a fall and had to be hospitalized. Hence the headline for this week's post. Being power of...

Feeling A Little Bit Better

There's an old, very bad joke that goes something like this: It was Christmas, and everyone was feeling merry; so Mary went home. Then everyone jumped for joy, but Joy jumped out the window. I know those only work when spoken aloud, and in the #MeToo era, it's a...
