The author said, “After writing my first autobiography of the series about my young life, Dyslexic Dick: True Adventures of My World, I realized I had many more amazingly true stories to tell my way. What convinced me to write the next book was the fan readers feedback and reviews. You could see what they said on my website at http://www.dyslexicdick.com/ or on Amazon.com or on Goodreads.com. So, I wrote this next book of the series Dyslexic Dick II: The Marine Corps Truly Uncommon Experience for my readers.”
I asked the author, “What’s so uncommon about your marine story opposed to other authors that wrote about their life in the Marine Corps?
The author said, “This autobiographic story is about my life in the Marine Corps, and it is unlike any other story you'll ever read about the Marines. It's not a war story, although it did take place toward the end of the Vietnam War. So, don't look for a John Wayne type character in the author, it's just not me. It was at a time when the draft had just ended, and this was the beginning of an all-volunteer armed service for our country. It's not a victim's story because I'm dyslexic. I'm much more of a man because I'm dyslexic and a Marine veteran, as the story tells.”
“The Marine Corps and my dyslexia helped me achieve great things in life. However, being a dyslexic Marine does have its drawbacks, too. This story is a humorous, adventurous, and emotional account of my experiences as a Marine. But, it also tells what happens when things are not so honorable. I talk about being pulled from basic training, and shipped to the dark side of Parris Island, a place no Marine talks about. I talk of my horrible family tragedy, and the effect it had on me and the ones I loved.”
“I speak about both at home and abroad of romance, lust, love, and heartbreak. You'll read what it's really like to travel around the world on a Navy ship, seeing ports of call. The story is nothing like one told before. I tell of my accomplishments as a Marine, and also write of my long list of criminal activity. I wrote about the criminal underworld of the Marines, a few good criminals, but most were not that good. I talk about the thieves, loan sharks, and drug dealers living among us at our barracks and on the open seas. I told of stories about drinking, drugging, and fighting. I spoke of many honorable Marines and some pretty despicable characters. Dyslexic Dick II: The Marine Corps Truly Uncommon Experience is one true real life story, and I am proud to say it's my own.”
The interviewer asked, “Where can readers find more information about this book or perhaps purchase it?”
The author Richard “Dick” W. Kraemer said, “I’m glad you asked that! My book's website is http://www.dyslexicdick.com/ from there, are links to my books on Amazon.com for sale. Both books are available in paperback and E-book versions. On Amazon the reader could read the first few chapters of each book for free with the Look Inside feature.

I am also running a Paperback Book Giveaway on the Goodreads.com for both of my books, those links, too, are on my website."
