At least one scary drama will end well on Halloween

For the past few months I have been faced with two grossly different but equally scary situations. First my main computer hard drive crashed with some important files which had not been backed up. This proved to be a difficult recovery situation. Then I began having health issues, the origins of which also have been difficult to determine. In both cases original attempts proved futile.

After seeing three doctors, I am having my second procedure on Halloween to try to find out how to treat my tricky health problem.

The other issue, however, should be resolved that same day. The files were recovered through a nationally known, prominent recovery service, shipped out and scheduled to be delivered on Halloween. So, provided my health issues can be soon resolved I will be able to return to work on my third and final volume of Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions and the needed changes in Gerald Sinclair and Rondo B B Me‘s epic tome The Enigmatic Sinclairs, original volume!

In the meantime, my two associates, Michele Doucette, Editor in Chief of St. Clair Publications and Graphic Artist, Kent Hesselbein continue to do a splendid job of putting out great new books! More about that soon!

Status of Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions Volume III

I just received a comment from a dedicated reader and owner of my popular cliche origin books asking me if a third volume of Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches (etc) is in the works. It is time for me to notify everyone of the status of this effort. A few months ago the hard drive of my primary work computer crashed! I had done eight months research on a third volume which was on this devise and not backed up. I took it to a local shop which informed me that they were unable to retrieve the files. Later a friend in Utah volunteered to examine the drive and determine if he could do the work. Again, no luck. He did, however, provide me with information on two shops who do this type of data retrieval which is very expensive and time-consuming. One is less expensive, but takes longer to get around to each new job because of high demand. I sent the drive there, and hope that they can accomplish retrieval. Whenever this is completed, I plan on continuing work on this research as time permits.

I truly appreciate the thousands who already own my popular books, and trust that you will be awaiting the last one in this series when it becomes available!
