Just A Geek has gotten a couple of nice reviews recently, and I wanted to share them with WWdN readers, because the book wouldn't even exist without your support and encouragement.
It's inspiring stuff. Wil's tackling the challenges that life has thrown at him full on. In doing so, he's rediscovered a skill for writing that is engrossing, engaging and even endearing. You feel for the guy as he tells of his struggles, as a working-class actor, to land roles in movies and shows; as he struggles to make ends meet. But you also cheer with him when he scores victories, and things come together, either getting back on the Trek circuit, or making the leap to embracing his current situation. He's a long way away from the loaded actor I suppose I thought he was having had such roles earlier in his career. He really is Just a geek.

Despite not having chapters devoted to such things as the snacks you should have for a successful Dungeons & Dragons gathering, Just A Geek was a great read. Wil gives you a look into his personal life and his difficult journey to find himself.
This book was so entertaining that it was the first book in a long time I did not want to put down.
From reading Just A Geek, you find out that despite being a great actor and a wonderful writer, Wil is just a normal guy with basically the same problems we have all faced at one time or another, except we probably donít have the shame of being on the cover of Teen Beat magazine.
Just A Geek isn't getting much support from the publisher any more, so it makes me awfully happy to hear that new people are discovering it anyway, and seem to be enjoying it.
I'm working on two new books, a Dancing Barefoot style collection of family stories, and a fiction novella. I hope to have them both out by the end of the year.
