New writing projects in the pipeline.

I have completed work on my first novel with the working title of HIRE LERNIN' and am now in the process oif querying literary agents in order to find an agent that can present it to traditional large publishing houses which only consider material submitted for publication by authors represented by an agent. My hope is gto have the novel in print within a year. But we will see as the process unfortunately takes time. I'm planning on a sequel that i hope to complete by the end of teh summer next year (2021). 

Meantime, i am also working on an expanded immigration law textbook this summer and on the background fresearch for a new article on immigration law--most likely from an international/comparative law perspective. During the current lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, research and writing have helped to kepf me (more or less) sane. 

A second poetry book is also in the back burner and long overdue, though I post fairly regularly in my two favorite poetry sites: AllPoetry.com and HelloPoetry.com where you can always see some of my latest writing.

Anyone ionterested in hearing read selections of my classic and new poetry, fiction and even a full introductory lecture on copyright law can visit my YouTube Channels at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBa7s2xkrUrn-UwuA7hHZJQ/. An older channel I no longer post to still has some of my early trailers with poetry readings and readings of select shoprt stories as well at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRUiSZr1_rWDEObcWJELP7w

I hope you will enjoy my simple videos half as much as I loved making them--cold readings with warts and all.
