The Treasure Galleons is now a REEL Novel

If you haven’t heard, I’ve had a career shift from music to screenwriting (and editing). Several of my screenplays have won awards, but only Hollywood readers get to read them. So I decided to adapt my latest award-winning screenplay into a book, and now...

I’m PUBLISHED! My books are the first titles with Reel Novels Publishing, a unique new publishing imprint for screenwriters.

Last week, I had a great book launch at the book signing with other 1715 fleet authors in Vero Beach where the 300-year anniversary of the story’s true events took place. More book signings are in the works.

This is NOT about making money; it’s about the number of sales. Thus, the retail prices are as low as possible. The more books sold to individuals, the more attractive to a potential investor &/or production company to get the movie made!

Please get your copy ASAP & tell your friends & associates!

All versions of the books are available for the lowest prices from the publisher (w/author signature) at:

The Treasure Galleons (in COLOR):

The true, award-winning story about a general’s son who must confront pirates, cannibals and an angry king after a hurricane devastates the family’s fleet carrying $400 million in Spanish treasure.

  • A FAST read (175 pages) with 49 full-color images of original artwork! This historical adventure is suitable for all ages, but the reading level is best for 5th grade & up (a lot of Spanish words thrown in). The book version was written in ONE WEEK! But the original story took 6 months of development as a screenplay (+ years of research). Sales of this book all go to making the movie a reality.
  • Be sure to purchase the COLOR version!


A Song for Treblaya:

The fate of a kingdom rests on the young shoulders of a peasant girl and her love for a hellion whose disregard for the Testament Scrolls may lead to their permanent annihilation.

  • A longer read (431 pages). This Christian/fantasy/adventure/romance is suitable for high schoolers & up. Started in 1988, this took 4 years to complete & is published under my pseudonym (TK Blackburn). 2015 is its first publishing! Again, this isn’t about making money. It’s about making the story available to anyone interested.
  • The B&W version will do:

For international delivery, buy from other Amazon vendors:

Once you’ve bought your version of either book, be sure to register at the link in the back of the book. You’ll be notified of any book revisions & upcoming titles. My award-winning thriller Evangelina will be published in early Fall 2015.

The Treasure Galleons - the script - the book - the mini-series!

It's official. The Treasure Galleons is a BOOK!

After winning 8 (actually 9, but I must keep the latest win under wraps for now) awards, including 2 wins, the screenplay has been adapted into a very colorful novella. Chock full of original paintings by the talented Peggy Gross (my mommy), it also sports a wonderful cover painting by Cornish painter Ralph Curnow. The painting also marks the midpoint of the story.

You can order now, or better yet, get your SIGNED PAPERBACK at the wonderful book signing event Monday, July 27th at the very spot where the events happened exactly 300 years ago (Vero Beach, FL).

Hope to see you, but if I don't, be sure to order that ebook. The more copies distributed, the more likely it WILL be made into a MOVIE (or a mini-series)!!

Thanks for your support!
