A Preview of My Latest Project for CostcoWineBlog Readers

CostcoWineBlog was founded on a whim.  I shop at Costco regularly and love buying wine there so I started to write about it online.  For six years I’ve been writing wine reviews regularly, and we’ve created this awesome community of people who love finding new wines to enjoy from Costco.

In short, I’m not going anywhere.  In fact, I hope we can grow this site even more in the years to come.  Today, I wanted to ask a favor of you.

Writing fiction has always been a passion and I have completed my first novel called The Callisto Symphony.  It’s part science fiction, coming of age, computer hacking, social media and space exploration.  I wrote this because I wanted to get this story down that had been lingering in my head for years.

There’s more below if you’re interested, and I published the first five chapters for free here.  I’d like to ask you to read my book and to let me know what you think.  It’s available from Amazon right now, free for Prime members, only $2.99 for Kindle, and paperback is $9.99 which is the lowest price I am allowed to do through the online publishers.

I know it’s not wine related but it would mean a lot to me to hear your thoughts on this book (editor @

Here’s more on the book:

Sending a child alone into deep space seems unimaginable… but what if the world depended upon it?


As an infant, George Burgess was placed aboard a spaceship, alone, and sent on a mission toward the outer edge of the Milky Way.  Along the way the young boy was raised by robots and educated remotely by the world’s top professors, all under the strict guidance and supervision of the mysterious Grand Master.

As he grows older, the highly intelligent young man becomes more in tune with his surroundings, uncovers irregularities in the system that controls him and begins to question everything he’s been told.  He discovers Earth’s Internet and social media, and learns about the distant planet that he has never known, but was chosen to protect.  And he finds out that he might not be alone in his mission, The Callisto Symphony.
