John, a Fort Lauderdale Criminal Lawyer, has already appeared on several radio and television programs, and is scheduled for more in the future. As the result of a teaser release sent to several major news outlets, it was determined that The Washington Post and several other newspapers were interested in covering Danger Road . As further example of the public interest in the story, a reporter for the South Florida New Times approached John independently to inquire about writing a story covering the trial and his relationship with Gil Fernandez. This resulted in a two-part, front-page article, entitled, “Muscles, Murder and a Messiah,” which ran in January 2006.
Recently, a Hollywood producer approached John to option the film rights for the book. This offer currently is under consideration.
John will attend the 2006 Book Expo America as an exhibitor, taking the opportunity to establish marketing relationships.
