Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
In the previous post of the day I made mention of the fact that Vincent Zandri and I are going to be doing something along with a class of graduate students from West Virginia University. It seems that the class has been following our blogs and Zandri’s success in class and one of the students called in to my blogtalk show yesterday, Thursday, as Mr. Zandri was my guest. The young woman is a Facebook friend of mine and follower of our blogs, Katherine LaHart. She put the suggestion to us…Continue

Wow, it is Thursday already and we are moving like a bullet train headed for a big day on Saturday. Our second Improvised Digital short Story will be happening then and I am totally amped at the prospect of working with a fine group of authors on this next project. We will start at 8am on Saturday and hopefully be done everything by 3pm.I am giving each author a time limit of 1.5 hours to put together their 1,000 to 1500 words of the story. Basically within a nice 8 hour time span…Continue

I write for my life. I write as a way to heal from my disability imposed on me by crime, dentists and the system. I write to change the world and deliver strong messages of change.
I write inspite of those who tried to stop me and my book. I write everyday even when I have nothing to say. I write even when I see that there are better writers than me.
I write to reach out and create change. Words are tools of expressions which otherwise I would lay on canvases and wood.

Hi, everybody! I have put together my top 20 picks of novels for so far this year. Some of the novels are not from the Big 6 publishers and that should not be of any surprise to anyone that follows my blog. I try to find good stuff to read just about anywhere I can. As a side note to all of this, I will be posting my Delicious Dozen of Digital short Stories tomorrow, please look for it. The Self-Published list will be out later in the year as I accrue more posts. Remember, I actually took…Continue

I love this kind of stuff…short stories. I almost put this on Digital short Saturday but thought better of it as it sold as one packaged good. How could it qualify for a digital short story, you ask? I read this on my Kindle. It is broken up into different short stories by different authors, thus the digital short stories. Tomorrow I am popping in my Top 20 Novels of the First Quarter of 2011, and then on Thursday I am calling it The Delicious Dozen Of Digital short Stories First Quarter…Continue

Being a big Bill & Ted’s Great Adventure fan, I could not pass this sci-fi work up. I mean getting another crack at Socrates, does it get any better. Later on today the author of this fine piece of work meets me in The G-ZONE. I think it is a great way to start the week personally, another reason to wake up, all that kinda stuff. Just to clue everybody in, this is another huge week of guests and posts as we make a mad dash toward Saturday and another Improvised Digital Short Story…Continue

Publishing my first book turned out to be more of a learning experience than anything at all. Some parts of me are screaming that it was and is a night mare but really, being a victim of an attempt murder who for her dental compensation had received a debilitating dental work.....
What I learned is slightly hair raising but it only validates what I knew all along but could not admit. Most people are liars.
Its not that a lie is a crime. Although the law achieved the definition…Continue

Sci-fi has not been my thing of late. I have read some of it, and found it to be wanting. This though is different and imaginative in many different ways, including the fact this penned by a husband and wife team, not too shabby. Wait, it is Sunday, the end of the work week for me. I get no time off as usual, and I have my posting schedule set for the coming week, so I suggest you check out my Goodreads homepage; it has the novels, graphic novels, self-published novels and digital…Continue
