Evil Walks. Featuring The Sandman.

This is a new feature that I will have on both my Facebook page and my website. A new super short story series featuring one of my characters, The Sandman. Enjoy part 1 of Evil Walks.

The young black male zippered up his black jacket all the way to the top until it covered the thin white dress shirt that he was wearing. He even felt a cold breeze blowing up the legs of his black pants. It was a… Continue

McKenzie Files-2 Advance Sneak Preview.

It took a while for me to get this done, but here it is for all my fans. A first and only early glimpse of McKenzie Files-2. Assasination Anxiety. As our Heroes, Colin, Diane and Kelly face off against The Enforcers. Publishing date to be announced. Remember, this is still a work in progress. But keeping within my writing zone and trying to keep my nose away from my X-Box 360, this work should be completed soon.

Great News!!!
A message from keith arnold to all of his friends, please forward this to all your friends!

Thank you to all of my friends who have supported me, and who will support me in the future by purchasing a copy of my book. I have great news, I have re-created a copy of my book so that most of you who couldn't afford to purchase it at the $19 price may be able to purchase it at the new price of $12. Please note that 10% of the proceeds that I receive from my book goes toward the American Cancer Society(my grandfather died from prostate cancer), and also the American heart association(my grandmother died from a massive heart attack). So, on behalf of Myself, the Kingdom of God, my grandmother, and my grandfather, thank you very much for your support! May God continue to bless each and everyone of you. Please click on the link below to purchase or preview my book. Love you to Life!!!!
