Amazon, the world’s largest online distributer of print and electronic books, recently awarded its coveted “bestseller” designation in three categories to the debut novel of timeshare industry veteran Larry Gildersleeve. Dancing Alone Without Music was released in 2016, and reached #5 nationwide in the competitive Inspirational Fiction category. It was then included in Amazon’s Hot New Releases marketing category. Amazon is also Gildersleeve’s publisher, and his book is available in soft cover and Kindle e-Reader exclusively at Amazon.com
From a very young age, Gildersleeve knew he wanted to be a published author. “I started numerous books over the years, but never got very far,” Gildersleeve says, “because like legions of other aspiring writers, the important commitments to family and career intervened. So my dream of becoming a published author was put on hold for several years. Coming home to Bowling Green ignited both my passion to write and, more importantly, a commitment to actually act on my desire to be a published author. My dream finally became a reality in 2016.”
Still working full time as a resort industry consultant, Gildersleeve directs the activities of a unique entity brokering third-party merchant services exclusively to the resort timeshare industry, Customized Solutions, a division of Gildersleeve Partners.
