This professional reviewer states Fatal Addiction hits too close to home and it will be overlooked.I prefer to think that one day I shall get lucky and some one will pick up on the importance of this works which will soon become another successful movie.I have already had one producer knocking on my door?
Who knows? I am so proud of his review,it was very sincere like the others.

Ev Beal, relying on his long experience in the pharmacy industry, has turned it to good advantage in this espionage/thriller-type novel. The book is fast-paced, sometimes too fast which is the only complaint I have, and the characters are far more believeable than the typical protagonists and antagonists you'd find in similar works. The folks in this book are real people. Simply put. You're not going to find flying cars, laser wrist watches and micro-nukes in a shoe sole. You are going to find a solid and believeable plot with no need to rely on Science Fiction type devices to cover up where the writer's narrative abilities fall down. It's a sad indictment of ths nation that it takes a work of near-fiction to expose the world of illegal pharmacopia and the designer drug market. This is not the kind of thing you're going to read about in your morning paper, even though it happens in every community across the nation. Beal's work, unfortunately, will be one of those books that never gets the serious consideration and treatment it deserves. Why? Because he hits too close to home exposing a dark side of society we choose to ignore.

|This review startled me as it really hit home.He hit the nail on the head when he stated," This is not the kind of thing you're going to read about in your morning paper, even though it happens in every community across the nation. Beal's work, unfortunately, will be one of those books that never gets the serious consideration and treatment it deserves. Why? Because he hits too close to home exposing a dark side of society we choose to ignore."
Absolutely correct as my local newspaper has overlooked Fatal Addiction mny times since its arrival.I won 3rd.place in an International contest and first with my publisher for selling more books than any other author for my beginning months.This news went to the news about the awards I recieved.
Twenty-five book signings, many around Griffin,GA.and only one interview which wss taken from front page color and replaced by a ferris wheel and a local fair.The interview lasted three hours and was cut down to about a fourth of the size.
I want to offer many of the articles you see at my site to the paper but don't want to be turned down.Like the review above states,Fatal Addiction will never be a succes since it hits home and folks would rather leave their heads in the sand.
Some day I hope they fool me and the writer waking up to see what really is happening in their town day and night for ADDICTION knows no classes nor boundaries.
One day my publicist will locate a director or producer that just might get this book on a screen?
