Maybe a new Genre?

I've been known as the "Real Life Fiction for Real Life People" author. I mix fact and fiction and weave stories you can relate to. Now I'm thinking about expanding my genres.

Check out the first three chapters of "Ashley In Albuquerque." It's the story of Paul Summer, a 50-ish Indie author who goes around the country pimping his books, but eventually ends up pimping himself too.

Let me know what you think!…

Leftoverturned



(Detail from « American Quilt » by Natasha2006)



When I complete a composition there are often unused ideas left. Some of those I find actually pretty good but if I can’t see how to fit them into the piece then there’s not much choice but to discard them. For a…

FREEDOM CRY

slowly melting away are these bonds that bind me,

letting loose this beast that defines me,

going mad in a world with no compassion,

making my own rules setting my ownfashion.

The Ordeal

With the official release of The Empyrical Tales Book III: The Secret Queen about a week away, I wanted to revisit the original purpose for this blog. Originally, I had intended to give a "making of" commentary and work my way through the story. Like Book III, Book I: The Fourth Queen closely follows the plot of the Hero's Journey. Check out the archive to see older posts, but I left off with "The Ordeal".…

Around the Globe with MERRY JONES

Heading into a hot holiday weekend. Two days off and no set plans.

First, however, it’s another interview with a fantastic author. I pick her up in my trasnporter and since she didn’t care where we went, I did something I’ve never done with any other author. I took her back to my apartment to meet…

The Importance of your Book Cover

With the rise in popularity of eBook publishing, I am starting to notice that some authors don’t pay much attention to the book cover for their novels. Even if you publish an eBook and not a paperback version, I think it is still important to have a professional, attractive front cover as part of your promotional material.

I am still more inclined to look at a book based on the front cover even if I am browsing on my Kindle. There is something intriguing about cover art, when you can…

Around the Globe with ANNE GLYNN

 

It’s across the sea to the lovely country of Italy with this week’s featured author…or rather authors. I wrestled with ”Anne” at the transporter control because I wanted to go see Pompeii, but after a look from her much larger and peculiarly silent partner “Glynn”, she won out and we’re…

Yay or Nay???

A little experiment of mine although it's a bit rough and could use some editing when I grab the chance... should I carry on?

-André Maurois



Prologue-Reflections of the Past

Many lives for me have come and gone. Each one haunting me with a memory I want so much to forget…each death… Continue

Thompson On..."Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You."

   I can’t believe I waited until the autumn years of my life to take on risky business!

       For the first time in my life, I stepped out with a video blog about writing confidence where I had to face the camera and express my feelings in public. That was an exhilarating experience.

    Now, I’ve developed an interactive website with funky music (developed my Donald Moody II), videos and audio readings of certain chapters of Philly Style and Philly…
