  I know it’s been awhile since the last episode, so I thought I better explain why. First of all, I have NOT abandoned the story. I would never do that. I took a little time to write HOMELAND (out now) and am now back to working on The Twelve Shepherds. BUT, due to reader input, I am re-working the format. The serial format worked for some, but a majority of you expressed that the story be told in novel format instead. (Some of you […]

Being a writer involves much more than writing. The daydreaming and doodling and creating part are the best. The actual writing part can be both fun and aggravating, but mostly fun. I enjoy it immensely, and with the help of Bill (my assistant) I can now do it more and not spend as much time on the parts of the job which I enjoy less. But the other parts cannot be ignored. Writing is also very much a business and with that in mind one […]

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 […]

Facebook is servicing me and my readers.

Today, after a lazy morning of not writing, I got on Facebook to see what was happening in the world. 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 […]

Most authors, myself included, need some help sooner or later. It might be with cover-art, or marketing, sales tracking, formatting, the list goes on and on. Some of these things you may not understand well, some you may lack the talent for, some may just take too much time, and some you just simply hate doing. To accomplish these things you may end up hiring one person or several. Eventually you reach a point of doing more maintenance than you do creation. That’s when you […]

No internet. If we went down the mountain and into town all of our phones would light up like Christmas trees after a certain turn in the […]
