Kindle Edition Coming Soon


I’ve been getting a lot of questions about whether and when Bar Code will be available in an e-book format.  Yes, Bar Code is currently being converted into an e-book format and will soon be purchasable through Amazon’s Kindle Store.  I’m hearing that it will take a few weeks to complete this process, and once it is finished, you will be able to read Bar Code on your Kindle, i-pad, i-phone, droid phones and other major e-reader devices.  So all you e-book fanatics just sit tight for a couple weeks and I will most definitely give you a heads up when Bar Code is available for purchase at the Kindle Store.

Finally Finished!


“Why don’t you write a novel about taking the Bar Exam?”

The idea was first proposed by my wife in the Summer of 2007 while taking our newborn daughter on a stroller walk in Mountain View’s Stevens Creek Park.  Four years, six months, 456 pages and 174,252 words later, our newborn is ready to register for kindergarten and Bar Code the novel is finally finished.

I’d like to give a shout-out to all those who helped make this novel a reality.  First and foremost I have to thank my wife for her unwavering support and inspiration.  I’d also like to thank my two little girls for adhering to regular napping schedules and discovering the joy of independent play.  To my parents (both biological and in-law) I’d like to say thanks for all the childcare and editorial services.  Finally, a big thank you goes out to my sister for all her help on designing and perfecting the novel’s cover and website.

I hope all who pick up this novel enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.  To those I already know, thanks for the support and I look forward to hearing from you.  To those I have yet to meet, feel free to e-mail me and tell me about your Bar Code reading experience…I’d love to hear about it.
