I have no idea what I’m writing

In the penultimate post from “Creative Week”, we continue to talk writing. As you will see, however, much of the time, I have no idea what I’m writing. So, let’s set the wayback machine to almost 10 years ago. Gosh! I can hardly believe it’s been that long! But, there it was, “Black Monday”. My… Read more »

Back from the dead?

Okay, here’s a new experiment for me, “real-time” writing. In this case, my squeaky leather chair (quite annoying) and blog post will serve as surrogates for my chair on a sandy beach and baby laptop. I can’t suggest how successful this may turn out or even how entertaining, but today and tomorrow will be – sort… Read more »

Lonely is the blog

I’m going to make this “Return to Writing Week” here on the JMD blog. It’ll be a series of writing-related posts and maybe, perhaps, even a bit of writing. I’ll start off with this here blog. Almost simultaneous to me finishing my first book, I set up a website to help publicize my writing and… Read more »

They’re around here somewhere

Normally, I don’t answer the phone when the caller isn’t identified and I don’t recognize the number. But, filled with the good spirit of the holidays and an eerie sense of familiarity, I did pick up on a local call yesterday. It was one of those, “I thought I recognized that number…” moments, as it turned out… Read more »

To 3 or not to 3

To continue our conversation on my returning to the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures to tell more tales of Jeremy, Natalie and the gang, we’ll need to revisit the past again to explain the future. The central idea behind my creation of What if? was that of a young, imaginative boy finding a sketchbook that allowed all… Read more »

Four years later

Huh. I just realized the headline could make people think this is about the election. Nope, not this week. This blog apologies for any confusion the title may have caused. When my last job ended, before a combination of age discrimination and lack of enthusiasm changed a job search into an early retirement, I thought… Read more »

I’m still happy I did it

Yeah, I know, my opinion doesn’t matter…at least if sales are my goal. Nevertheless, I’m still glad I chose the cover I did for the first book in my trilogy. A recent spate of potential new readers and reviewers of What if? brought back the issue of the first cover’s apparent suggestion the book is for younger… 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 »

So, anticlimactic letdown?

Nah, just a satisfied pause. Already, friends, Romans and countrymen are peppering me with questions of what I plan to do next to market the trilogy.  They’re correct, I need to work at it.  In order to turn my trilogy into the little books that could, I have to sell them myself. But, I’ve also… 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 »
