Modesty should forbid, but I've successfully introduced many new products in the media space for fun and profit.
My current project: A next generation of digital book for people like me - "greedy readers" of genre fiction who like to explore the world of the story further using online multimedia links.
RE-IMAGINING THE eBOOK
The first genre-fiction series of Extended Reality Reads (XReads) will hit test markets in 1Q2023.
To fully immerse 21st Century readers, the XR format enriches the text narrative with art, video, audio, links to both faux and real articles and sites about the fictional characters and events, and extended-reality content.
Each series will also serve as underlying material for a streaming series to feed the Streamers' need for content.
The first series title is Regressor, about the power of evil acts left unpunished in the distant past to corrupt and destroy present lives until a final reckoning brings justice.
Psychiatrist Erik Jansson, M.D. practices an effective form of Past Life Regression Therapy (PLRT) that cures his patients' ills when conventional treatments fail.
In the first title, Flight of the WASP, Jansson's patient Sildy Mandique reveals under hypnosis her former life as a Women's Army Service Pilot (WASP) in 1944 who shot down a German jet warplane over Florida, only to see the event covered up by the U.S. Government.
She also encounters Dr. Jansson in his former life as an FBI man onto a plot by American traitors in high places to kill President Roosevelt and keep certain Nazis in power in Germany after the war.
Now their heirs are conspiring to plunge the world economy into a global depression for their own power and profit. When Erik and Sildy travel to Berlin to verify her story, they're stalked by agents of a powerful banking family who won't let them leave Germany alive...
The first in a series of patients' memories that keep the past life Regressor in present-world danger.

WHY WORK WITH ME?
SERIES I / BOOK I
REGRESSOR: The Flight of the WASP
Like those clever little pigs trained to find truffles, a fortunate skill set led me to re-imagine eBooks as a more sensory platform for the 21st Century reader.
Working in all media through my advertising career, and with publishers like Random House, Putnam, and Viking-Penguin as an author, I've learned to use design, writing, marketing, film production, and virtual reality content to communicate with mass audiences one-on-one.
Those skills enabled me to create finished XReads to test with selected readers, including Virtual/Augmented Reality features.
In 2018, I launched Virtual Fox Productions, LLC. to create mixed-reality content that could entertain, inform, and persuade as the ultimate one-on-one storytelling tool.
Now I'm applying the lessons learned to the XRReads concept development process.
Over many years, I've mastered the art and science of inventing desire for new products and media innovations...
