Variety Is The Spice Of Writing

Since I'm involved in martial arts, I write a series with a character who is a taekwondo school owner as well as a private investigator. Yes, she carries a gun, but she relies on her martial arts skills more often.Two challenges I have in writing this series are 1). to create scenes where my main character, Mallory Petersen, can use her skills and 2). for her to use a variety of those skills.What fun would it be for…See More

Chapters - I

NOTE: So, I should point out here at the beginning that I've decided to go with the title Chapters for this series of blog posts. I suppose nearly any of the stand alone posts could fit under this category, but I think I'll try to keep these with where there is a humorous complaint or comment. Searching the web I've discovered several other sites to tap when this current crop, originally listed back on 4/25, is depleted.…See More

Courage

CourageI tend to think of the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz when I see this word. It is all he wanted. He thought he could rule the jungle but lacked the nerve. He thought he didn't have that inner strength to face the fears around him.Fear. I have seen this word as an acronym. F.E.A.R. False Evidence Against Reality.Basically, what scenario you think might happen, probably won't. Let me give you a personal…See More

Let's Get (Meta) Physical

They and much more were seen at the 25th Annual Metaphysical Fair (commonly known as the Psychic Fair) held last weekend at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.This annual events brought over 80 vendors and speakers. If you're a true believer, an open-minded skeptic like me, or just curious, this was the place to be.I arrived about…See More

Sunny Frazier commented on Stephen Lawrence Brayton's blog post 'Adult Truth #14'
"Stephen, over at Novel Spaces (where I blog once a month) they are looking for new bloggers. Might want to hook up and re-post some of your writing over there. No longer with Oak Tree. Long, bad story. Now with Black Opal."

Adult Truth #14

“I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.”What is needed is a phone that will list the name of the person who's calling even if you don't have that person as a contact. So much easier to avoid sales people or telemarketers. I still get calls from them every once in awhile.This truth reminded me of a short audio book I recently reviewed. The author discussed various…See More

Horror Movie Lessons

A couple weeks ago I was watching a horror movie (and may I digress for just a moment to say that horror movies don't really impress me much anymore? One has to be pretty darn good to be 'scary'.) and I thought about some of the lessons or truisms to be learned from these movies. I posted some of them on Facebook but later I wrote them down to post them on my blog. Plus, this would be a good opportunity…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.
