Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
Since there doesn't seem to be a lengthy place to put up author bios or such (or I'm missing it), a bit about myself:
I live in a small town in Southern Ontario, Canada and have been writing mainly for my own amusement (and partially my friends' amusement) since I was about 10. This means I have in and around a decade of writing experience under my belt...so to speak.
Most of what I wrote long ago is unusable now but I am gleening some ideas and characters from the…Continue
I will continue to criticize Arizona's new xenophobic immigration law. Immigration is a complex issue, but it's also a federal responsibility and when you start mentioning states rights it can bring up some rather ugly memories of Jim Crow laws. The borders do need to be secure, but at the same time immigration reform is needed.
Why don't they come legally? This is the question often asked in this state where the "they" are…Continue

The Search for Reasons…Continue
Searching for yourself is a mystery left untold,
But trying too hard to find yourself,
is like losing prescious goldContinue

Experience; correlations Input, output, explanations Frames of reference; life equations
So unique-so the same Internal quandaries External strains Open to interpretation
Individual Variations All open To interpretation
Right now my blog - Urban Vampire is at http://email@example.com. I have been posting for almost 4 years now and once I have my own website I will link my blog to it, but for now it stands alone. Please visit and enjoy!
As I pass the mid-point of my comedy novel about retail I am working on a style very new to me. One, I have never written comedy before, but the ideas are flowing and my critic(s) tells me it sounds good. However, I am writing in a style that is almost narrative.
I woke up the next morning with an aching headache and immediately wished I hadn't gone out partying the night before. I couldn't think straight let alone stand up on my own two feet. As I…Continue
The plot thickens. Here is the latest in Crossed Wires.
Carl and Sandy Meet Their Mystery Man
Sandy drove them from Roanoke at a high rate of speed, hitting the I-81. Carl was wishing that he could have been behind the wheel, because he wanted to go faster. His brain itched, his back itched and just about everything else itched too. He was having a very itchy kind of day.
About an hour and a half out, Sandy…

I work for a company that does sales and marketing for Costco Wholesale. My parent company is Daymon Worldwide, another giant marketing company. May is the month which Coscto raises funds for The Chidlren's Miracle Network, also the charity I donate part of my profits to. This was the press release that was printed in all of our April newsletters. So far, it has helped me sell 150 more copies of "Sensitivity 101 for the Heterosexual Male...Lessons Learned from the Fairer Sex." Hoping it will…Continue

Panagsama is a Cebuano dialect here in my country, the Philippines, meaning "Brotherhood", and it is a name of the village that I am calling "My Home Sweet Home ". It is located in the southern part of Cebu, also known as "The Queen City of the South ", and has the most magnificent sunset that mesmerizes my whole being.
My heart belongs to Panagsama and Panagsama belongs to my heart. To each and everyone in this wonderful world of Authors.Com., "Discover The Splendor…Continue

I have something a little different this time.
Free Clinic will be in print by Christmas, and Crossed Wires is in the final stages of the writing process, i.e., still working on it.
But here's the rub: getting it out there.
With the advent of the e-book and other self publishing venues, the major houses are getting a little skittish.
Submit your work professionally. Get an agent of not ill repute and contract them. Be careful.
Intellectual property is still…
