He applied the Page 69 Test to Roam, his first novel, and reported the following:
I was rather surprised when I checked to find Page 69 is in fact a major turning point page in my novel. It’s the page when Nelson, canine protagonist, makes a discovery which sets in motion the events which lead to him being lost and wandering in the wild for eight years. At two years old, he has spent most of his life with Katey, concert pianist, and her husband Don. He is particularly close to Katey, who becomes the Great Love of his life (all dogs have one). On page 69, Nelson is sniffing around in their bed and detects an alien smell. It turns out to be a piece of silver underwear which belongs to a woman Don has been having an affair with. Nelson barks loudly, and alerts Katey to the underwear. So, she discovers her husband has been cheating on her.Learn more about the book and author at Alan Lazar's website.
