The Bite Size Novel
admin / March 19, 2011
As I look around my office the argument could be made I’ve robbed a bookstore or at least was about to open one.  There are all descriptions of books literally cascading from the shelves. The Nook has started storing the overflow. These books range from[..]
Lessons I Have Learned from Bacardi
admin / March 14, 2011
“But why is the Rum gone?” Or so said Johnny Depp in one of his pirate movies.  I’m certain, for his character in any event, the rum was his muse or at a minimum his motivation. However, the Bacardi I‘m talking about is not actually[..]
Check it out and Thanks!

I haven’t done a review in a couple of weeks but had a great experience this week I thought would be great fodder for a review.  Particularly given that on Fridays I try to do entries designed to give writers some tools, or at least[..]
Simple but Overlooked Marketing Ideas
admin / March 07, 2011
News flash! Writing a book is just the first step of the process. How’s that for obvious? Make no mistake, it’s a huge first step, but the first never the less.  The real task is how to spread the word to the masses.   So[..]
Sounds from the Page
admin / March 04, 2011
I love music.  I’ve been a guitar player for years.  I love to write.  I’ve been a writer for almost as long as I’ve been a guitar player.  I always thought I’d have a CD/album/whatever you want to call it out before I ever even[..]

Hey, Aren’t You Old Enough to Have Your Own Place?

Review – Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin

When I was a kid I enjoyed spelling different words.  Mississippi was one in particular I loved from the sing-songy approach “M-I-crooked letter, crooked letter, I…” When a recommendation came up on my Nook that was just that, I was intrigued and later amazed. Tom[..]
Come Visit my Little Corner of Cyberspace
admin / February 25, 2011
I went to sleep on January 20, 2011 to little fanfare.  I was at a conference staying in a nice hotel on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.  Oddly enough there was talk of snow for the weekend.  I awoke on the morning of Friday, January[..]
Review – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
admin / February 23, 2011
I’ve decided to start dropping in a few book reviews in the blog.  It’s still going to be devoted to my writing, but I read so much, I figured why not. And with that my thoughts on Abraham Lincoln – Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith.[..]
