Which social media fits a social misfit?

Yeah, we’re there.  Decision time. Okay, I’ve whittled it down to only two choices to help chronicle my daily adventures on the Great North American Baseball Road Trip.  Well, not really choices, because I have to probably use both, but here’s where I am: Facebook – I have lots more “followers” and an unlimited posting… Read more »

No more weekends off

Over the five years and many hundred of blog posts on my website, I’ve held to a fairly regular irregular schedule.  I work a daily blog for as many as all five weekdays and take the weekends off. I haven’t posted every day, as I have to find something that interests me to post first… Read more »

(insert clever headline here)

During my time in advertising, most of my effort in print was spent trying to come up with the “hook”; that catchy headline that would grab the potential customer. It’s really all in the headline, when it comes to print, be it billboards, magazines, newspapers or, now, web banners. You can get away with pigs leaning… Read more »

Looking for new tones

Negative reviews fascinate me. I use the term “negative”, specifically, as opposed to critical.  The latter embodies a definition that includes “expressing or involving an analysis of the merits and faults of a work”.  The former is generally an expression of flat disapproval. The fascinating part to me is the difference in tone between positive,… Read more »

Hitting 500

Today.  Right here. In honor of my 500th blog post, I thought to check out the number 500 in the world around us.  Some interesting things shake out about this fantastic, yet often ignored, milestone. It appears that the number 500 is not beloved by the movie, TV or music fields.  To wit: – Only… Read more »

The Omega effect

It has been fascinating reading the reviews of my final book in the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy. To this point, only copies from my giveaway on Goodreads have been read and reviewed.  It’s possible some of my Amazon sales have been read, but no reviews have shown up yet.  And that’s what’s so fascinating. The… Read more »

Back open for business

After an extended absence for remodeling, What if? is back up for sale in both paperback and e-book forms. Amazon and Booklocker already have their listings updated.  Barnes & Noble and Apple take a little longer. For those of you coming in late, I took all three books off the market while I made some… Read more »

Three out of five is fine with me

A while back, I was involved in a discussion on the nature and desire for reviews with other self-published/indie authors.  A common theme was that any rating below four stars (using the Amazon rating system as the barometer) was a drag on the book’s appeal. The conversation was lively and ran the gamut from “all… Read more »
