Beached

It’s been almost a year since I’ve written anything besides this blog and greeting cards. It’s been almost three years since What Now?, the last of my Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy was published. And that’s about how long it’s been since I’ve gone out and just sat on the beach. Oh, I’ve walked by it… Read more »

Making good

We’re inching ever closer to the completion of the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy. Yes, the books have been completely written (and rewritten) for some weeks now.  Yes, the books have been submitted, accepted and processed.  Yet still… What Now? is the last part in literal and literal ways.  I only await the processing of the… Read more »

My book ratings are falling…thank goodness!

Finally. The great thing about lovers of books is also the worst thing about lovers of books, namely, they read a lot of books. Though I have sent out many copies of What if?, What Next? and What Now? over the course of three giveaways through Goodreads, an active reader who receives the book is… Read more »

Can I get back to selling books, please?

I like to think of myself as a patient man, but I am suffering poorly this prolonged delay between the completion and release of the second editions of my books. Part of it is simply the marketing aspect.  After three consecutive month-long giveaways on Goodreads, I am swiftly losing any marketing momentum off those promotions…. Read more »

All webbed up and nowhere to go

Continuing our “Tales from Limbo” during the period between finishing the books and having them all up for sale. By this time, the JeffreyMDaniels.com website is finished, meaning there’s nothing left to do to the site. Sure, there is an FAQ that’s a wee bit dated (does anyone even read those?) and the message board could… Read more »

Money for nothing, write for free

I’m in a weird kind of limbo right now. I pulled the first edition of What if? off the market while the changes are completed.  The second edition of What Next? hasn’t finished conversion.  What Now? hasn’t even been released yet.  At the same time, the formative business with my friend has yet to gain… Read more »

I still have no dedication to my writing

Coming up with new ideas for my blogs isn’t easy.  After nearly five years and nearly 500 posts, inspiration is tough to come by.  That’s where my daily walks come in.  Turning “off” the brain during the walk allows all manner of creative thought to bubble up.  I will usually come up with the headline… Read more »

Good to go

The changes have been made to all three books in the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures series.  All the books are good to go. I’ve submitted all three, though I am still waiting on some final conversation regarding Book One.  Pending that, the trilogy will be up for sale for good. The errors in What if? were… Read more »

Smile at the person behind the counter

And they’re off! The mailing is completed for the second giveaway on Goodreads (50 lucky winners of What Next?, Book Two of the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures). I stuffed the mailing envelopes during the morning and then popped over to my local Post Office after lunch.  I am happy to have  an office just a 10… Read more »

Mailing list fun

The second giveaway on Goodreads is over and it’s time to send out copies of What Next? to the lucky winners. I am excited to be shipping these books out and not just for the chance at more readers leaving reviews.  There are a lot of things I find fun about mailing lists.  I wonder… Read more »
