Adult Truth #15

“I think the freezer deserves a light as well.”Why not? Illumination certainly would make finding that long forgotten frozen bagged hunk of round steak you placed in there eight months ago an easier task. This is one of those questions that nobody has taken the time to answer.How does this truth relate to writing? Again, you'll have to stretch your imagination a bit, and use your creativity. When I read this I thought of…See More

Diana Loera commented on Stephen Lawrence Brayton's blog post 'Determination'
"VERY well done!  As far as my goals for this year - I surpassed them and have set the bar higher for 2015. I think 2015 will be a golden year for indie authors - but you have to take action and own up to being an author.  One cannot sit…"

Determination

This is along the lines of perseverance but I think where perseverance tends to lean toward trying and not giving up, determination comes before.If you persevere for something, you are going to try and try, overcome whatever obstacle in your path. Tagging along with this can be a determination-al mindset that you are determined-dedicated-to reach your goal.However, I view determination as riding higher than…See More

Toys

There are times that I don't enjoy being an adult. Sometimes I want to be a child again.I get this feeling whenever I read a book with a child in it playing with a toy.See, that's the key word. Toy. Sometimes, I don't like the word. It brings back an aching nostalgia. Two years away from being fifty, I miss my childhood toys. My bunny, play pistols, Tonka toys, trucks and cars, rocket ships, puzzles, games. Okay, I gave…See More

Into the transporter we go and I set the destination controls and before we take off, she pushes a button on the side of the console, one I've never seen before.Soon we're in Nashville, at…See More

Stephen, top of the world 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 I plan to unite within a book 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 Muller Park'.    

Let me know if you'd like to become friends.

The Chuck!

Need help promoting/marketing your book? Maybe I can help. I've just had my latest novel published and am running a contest. Check out my website - http://authorpromohelp.webs.com - and read about it. I'm giving away a Kindle reader just for signing up and a $500 reward for my earlier novel, No Sad Songs. Let me know what you think.
