I don’t promote, or advertise much, if at all. So please watch my friend’s trailer for his movie he’s working on and putting out soon. John C. Lyons is my friend’s name. He’s the Writer & Director of this film, “There Are No Goodbyes”. We went to the same high school & grew up in the same small, redneck, hick town of Albion, Pennsylvania. John is a great guy. Funny & creative. I had an Art class with him and he always made me laugh. Please just watch this Full Trailer of his new film. Matthew King stars in it. He’s ALSO from my small hick town of Albion. He is a few years younger than me & I’ve played some pickup basketball with him numerous times. Good guys. Both him & John. Follow John on Twitter too @LyonsDenProd
