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.

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.

Every time I think this issue is over it finds its way back into the news. Once again the Authors Guild and their Big 5 masters are screaming a word they just don’t seem to understand. Monopoly. They throw the word around with abandon. Monopoly: mo•nop•o•ly the exclusive possession or control of the supply or trade in a commodity or service. Via: Flickr (license) These articles always manage to work in the word Antitrust, yet they seem to have a hard time with its definition as […]
