Is my face red!

A special emergency Sunday edition of the blog for a big mea culpa! So there I am, cleaning the shower doors and mirrors when I am saved from my least favorite thing in the world (cleaning) by the sound of an email.  Now, normally, an email isn’t enough to get me to jump up and… Read more »

To read or not to read…that is the question.

I’m confused. Yes, that’s not exactly breaking news, but this is something new, so bear with me. You all know about my giveaways on Goodreads (or you should, by now, I’ve mentioned them enough).  The online reading/reviewing site keeps track of the people who put in requests for the book(s) and lets me know on… Read more »

What to do with a bad review?

“There is no such thing as bad publicity” No one can tell who first said this popular quote, but there are plenty of examples of it not being correct. Sooner or later, I am going to get a bad review.  It’s inevitable, especially as I gain a wider reading audience across my books.  The recent… Read more »

Judge not, lest you miss a good book

It seems I may be the victim of prejudice. As I put the finishing touches on the final installment in my fantasy adventure book series, the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures, I am seeing and hearing a recurring theme about my first book, “What if?” The comments, boiled down to this:  “Based on the cover, I thought… Read more »

Boy, we sure love free stuff!

We just can’t get enough! My campaign kicked off last Friday on Goodreads, offering a giveaway for copies of the first novel in the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy, “What if?”.  This will be followed by a similar offer on the second book in the trilogy, “What Next?”, leading to the release of the final book,… Read more »

Watch out!

It’s the first line from my first book:  “Whoa there, little guy.  Watch out where you’re going.”  It’s only just recently I noticed this applies to me as I do my daily walk. The path I take around my area is not so much a sidewalk as a strip of pavement, bounded on each side… Read more »

What’s wrong with this picture?

Several weeks ago, I came up with this silly “tracking” feature to keep all of you apprised of my progress on the final book in the trilogy. Using pages as a measure would be pointless, since my first book started at 100 pages ballooned to over 300 and then settled at 240 pages.  This book… Read more »

Promises, promises

When I released  What Next? early this year, I promised you I would not make you wait through another 2-year gap between parts of the story.  This was especially important, considering this is the finale of the trilogy. Yesterday, I began the writing part of What Now?  The book was plotted and laid out over… Read more »

%&!# realism

When I was putting the final touches on “What Next?”, I solicited reviews from some readers of “What If?” to get an outside opinion on the book.  Of particular note was a comment from a reader I greatly respect that he was having trouble identifying with Jeremy because “he’s too good”.  We agreed that much… Read more »
