I have an important question that needs an answer

Hey all,I am hoping someone can help me with this. It is probably easy to do but does anyone know how to delete the extra blank pages out of your manuscript. I finished all the editing and have a few pages after i decided not to add any illustrations. See More

Been away thinking....

Hello,It has been a little while since I have been in here. Been busy with editing the second book in the trilogy  I also found that after writing the second book the title does not fit anymore so I am thinking really hard on changing it. But not sure if i can even do that since book one is already published. I don't want to confuse my readers. My Co-author told me if  we change the name now we are going to have to go back and change the first book as well. Which wouldn't be hard but expensive…See More

Need some Advice

I need some advice!!! So I am hoping that I came to the right spot. I found out that my publisher was ripping me off with not paying me for all of my books sold. Now I know what everyone would say...Drop them and find another one... well I wish it were that easy. I would love to do exactly that. However, I am in the middle of finishing book 2 in my Trilogy and Book 1 was published with this publisher. My question is, do I stay with the same company or do i publish the last 2 books with another?…See More

How do you know when the company you chose for marketing your book is a good one?

Hi,I was wondering how do you tell when the marketing company you chose is a good one. After my first book was published and I was about to have my second book published. I got a call from a marketing company that told me that they could help boost my sales from 1.2 a percent on up with their help. They said they could guarentee an increase. I live on a fixed budget so money is something i take very seriously.Before I made a deal I did check them out. I went into the Better Business Bureau to…See More

About Me:

I live in Eldora Iowa with my husband John. Our 2 dogs CC who is a black Lab and Buddy a black and white Cocker Spaniel mix. A turtle named Bubba that I have for more than 20 years and 13 cats whith very distinct personailities. We have two kinds our Russian Blue family is made up of Momma Blue, Lily, Miley, Zippy, Neopoleon, Gizmo, and Fluffy. Our Simiese family is made up of Kuma while Butch, Sam, Linus, Stoshi,Isabell are our Tabby family.

I am not your typical writer since I didnt even think of becoming one until I was trying to get into the Nursing Program but when I didnt make it in I had to keep trying to up my score for the next year. But to make a long story short I revamped an old high school story and At a Glance was published in March of last year thanks in part to my English College Professor. It was then that I fell in love with writing. I love creating new characters, plots drawing people in and taking them on a ride.

Mandy, top of the universe to you,  and welcome to authors.com  …from The Chuck!
        I write sci-fi novels filled with adventure, mystery, romance, drama, horror, and plenty of comedy… Sci-fi for every adult human to enjoy. I'm also a well-known published poet. When you have a few free moments, please check out my Authors page and a few of my videos and blogs I have recently added. Many of my blogs consist of free to read enjoyable sci-fi stories that I plan to edit and unite these twenty-two stories within an  eBook titled: 'Epic Marvels'. One of my newest sci-fi novels is titled: 'They!', which is somewhat related to the 1954 sci-fi classic movie, 'Them!' I'm currently working on a sci-fi mystery titled: 'The Mysteries of Fuller Park'.    

Please let me know if you'd like to become friends.

The Chuck!
