Hey, Aren’t You Old Enough to Have Your Own Place?
admin / February 28, 2011
We’re little more than a month out from the publishing of The Trust and I’m starting to realize I have a lot to learn about book promotion.  What I have learned can be boiled down to one word. Presence. Of course reducing any idea to[..]
Review – Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin
admin / February 27, 2011
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[..]

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[..]

I’m a planner.  Vacations?  I know where I am going, where I am staying, the things I want to do on vacation and likely even the days I’ll be doing them while I travel.  Dinner?  I know today what I am having tomorrow. My day? [..]

Alone in Cyberspace
admin / February 08, 2011
For years I looked at blogs and rolled my eyes.  Why would I ever need to blog?I had this same response with Tivo.  I had the same reaction to satellite radio.  I did it with my iPhone.  In each of the situations I had a[..]
