What’s this book about again? If you are familiar with my style of writing you know I like to use current events in stories. Much like the Law & Order shows, my topics are “ripped from the headlines” and then given their own unique twist. The Twelve Shepherds does this as well and plays off the storyline in Closure in order to happen. In Closure we had Sam Shepherd, a military veteran who is driven by personal tragedy into conducting a violent campaign against the

help your indie author

Ways you can help an Indie Author   Writing a book is hard enough, promoting it is a whole other matter. Big name authors can afford to hire a publicist, but indie authors have to get by with grass-roots connections, word-of-mouth, and a little luck to inform the world out there of their latest creation. So what can you do to help make your indie author succeed? Rate and Review Your Favorite Books Rating and Reviewing books gives other readers a sense of what the

Do you hear it? My wife does. My kids do. Even the dog. Its why none of them are around me right now. It’s not my keyboard, they’re use to that. Its…my mouse. If you ever wondered what an author does the day after he releases a book to the public? It’s this. Mouse clicking. Lots of it. We open every sales tab we can and spend the day clicking back and forth waiting to see if anybody took a chance on our book. Its

Hello everyone, Just dropping in to dispel rumors of my death. I am indeed alive and keeping the Jack Randall series alive as well. Six months ago I blogged that I was behind.

She passed from a stroke a few months back and we held off on the funeral until all who wished to could attend. She was a great supporter of my

Nothing new really, the race for the presidency is still a cluster, the world is still getting hotter, and the Kardashians are still famous for no reason what-so-ever. Then I saw this headline: Facebook is hiding your messages again, here’s how to uncover them! Wa..What!? See the full article here. Evidently, Facebook has taken it upon themselves to filter what messages you get. They did

Hello! This is Bill Vaz – Randall Wood’s author assistant – as previously announced by Randall. I’m back from climbing the Mont Everest. It was freezing – in fact, I still have some ice between my fingers as I type this. This will be a follow-up of my previous post, where I talked about how you can feel overwhelmed with all the important tasks you have to, besides writing. This post, however, will be about a nasty word we all know too well: fears. We
