Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
I know. Everybody has bad days but don't you feel some people have more than their fair share? You may even think this about yourself.
As writers, bad days can turn into opportunities for story content. So, feel free to use any of my experiences in one of your…Continue

"The Phantoms of Rockwood is excellent and an original idea. The cover photo is good. Your characterizations were excellent. I like the fact that Coach Jones LOVED his players. He was smart, sweet, and a super good coach coming off a 30 game-losing streak.…Continue

I think most mortals will agree that whenever one begins to do a task, the repetition of which
will now surely become a part of that one’s life for some length of time, that one will “learn”
how to complete that task more easily, and most likely more efficiently with each performance of it.
And that’s certainly been the case…Continue

After a cool week and a dusting of snow (blech!) this weekend is back up into the high 50s. This morning, however, I'm off to pick up this week's featured author who say he has the perfect spot for our interview. Soon we're relaxing in a clearing on Mt. Shasta in…Continue

Right now I have the matron of the house standing guard by the computer making sure I write positive things about the tribe. Gemini, who entered my life on my birthday, allows me to tap at the computer keys for just so long, then reminds me to take a break by crawling into my lap for a few strokes of her own.
The other four are off doing their own thing: Kitler is asleep on a cardboard box, a favorite spot of all cats (along with the step stool, the…Continue

Much has been written lately about the sudden explosion of vampires onto the literary and popular-culture scene, from Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, to Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire Mysteries and their HBO television version True Blood, to the hundreds of…Continue

The number one rule for authors is to network with other authors. I have been informed numerous times that authors who resist others in the field, often disappear. What’s the best way to network? Find someone smarter than you. It's the only way we will learn and/or grow.…Continue

It’s a term I first heard last year: “crowd-funding”. What’s that? I hear many of you ask. Well have a quick look over www.kickstarter.com and you’ll soon learn that it is a way to fund creative projects / entrepreneurial ideas through small donations from “the crowd” as opposed to the traditional way of large venture capital, expensive loans or self-funding. Of course lots and lots of small affordable donations can add up to…Continue

My views about small press and indie houses have drastically changed over the last seven years. I was trashed the first time out (2006, just returning to the Internet) with two books to the same publisher. They took 26 other authors down with me and closed their doors. The other four publishers (over the years to the present) resulted in lack-luster sales, no concerted promotion/marketing other than a few listings, editorial mishaps and what not. Granted,…Continue

PIERCE GATES SPEAKS: First of all, let me apologize for “dragging out” my answer to F.
John Surells “Capturings.” When I said I’d respond to that well-written piece, I had no idea my retort
would necessitate three submissions. And, probably I could, and perhaps should have posted it as
four. Nevertheless, I wish to end with three,…Continue
