Deep Brain Productions Releases Three New Book Titles

Deep Brain Production announces the availability of three new book titles on Amazon and other online booksellers.

Elkridge, MD, July 04, 2011 --( Author Bill Schmalfeldt today announced three new book titles available through his one-man company, Deep Brain Productions.

"Put On Your Parky Face" is the story of Schmalfeldt's 11-year struggle with Parkinson's disease, including his volunteering for experimental brain surgery in 2007 as part of a clinical trial seeking new and better treatments for this progressive neurological disorder. "I am one of 15 people in the United States to undergo this procedure," the 56-year old Elkridge, Md., resident said. The book takes a light-hearted, self-effacing approach to a very serious subject. Parkinson's affects an estimated 1.5 million Americans with 50-thousand new diagnoses each year.

After a 32 year career in broadcasting and journalism and six years as a writer for the Federal Government, Schmalfeldt was forced to take an early disability retirement in March 2011. He is unable to walk unassisted, he has trouble swallowing liquids and solids without choking, his balance is hampered and he sometimes has trouble speaking without stuttering. But his sense of humor shines through on every page of "Put On Your Parky Face," which you can review at The deluxe hardcover goes for $40, but paperback versions are available for $15 and the Amazon Kindle version can be had for $5. Schmalfeldt said 100% of the author's proceeds from the sale of "Put On Your Parky Face" are being donated to the National Parkinson Foundation.

His other two newly released books show his sharp sense of satire. In "Can You Be a Tea Party Member and STILL Call Yourself CHRISTIAN?" Schmalfeldt examines the Christian dictates of "love thy neighbor as thyself" and "whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me" in the face of what he describes as "the Tea Party's demands that government stay out of their lives and not use 'their money' to pay for the health care of people who are 'too lazy' to take care of themselves." "I decided that in order to be a true Tea Party member or a true Christian, one would either have to change his heart... or change the Bible. I opted to change the Bible," Schmalfeldt said. In his hilarious Tea Party Bible, Schmalfeldt twists the verses in Scripture to match what he calls the "I got mine, you get yours mindset so prevalent in the Tea Party." Schmalfeldt provides his own illustrations, indicting what he calls "the hypocrisy of those who claim to follow the tenants of Christ while advocating political policies that stab others in the back." You can view excerpts at The paperback is available for $20 and the Amazon Kindle version is available for $5.

Schmalfeldt's satire, which can be seen online on his feature at in their "Politics" section -- "Observations of a Brain Damaged Troll" -- takes a sharp left turn in his newest release, "Why I Hate America, Freedom and Everything Decent: More of My Marxist, Communist Fascist Lies." Today's headlines provide the grist for Schmalfeldt's satire mill and no one is spared. You can view excerpts at Also illustrated by Schmalfeldt, the paperback is available for $15 and the Kindle version goes for $5.

After more than 11 years with Parkinson's disease, Schmalfeldt says the disease has slowed him down physically, but not mentally. Not yet.

"As long as I can still put together a readable sentence, I intend to write," he said. "For one thing, I write because I'd go nuts if I didn't. For another thing, I would drive my wife nuts if I didn't."

Schmalfeldt lives with his wife, Gail, their adult son, T.J. and two dogs he blogs about incessantly in his home blog.
