In this current age of the internet and its venues of social media, I'm still the luddite dinosaur.  I've managed to join and participate in Facebook.  Hell, I even have a handful of friends there.  I've joined a few groups that seemed on the surface at the time I join...

I'm taking a long-ago cue from my favorite indie author, Hugh Howey.  Back when he first published the widely-popular WOOL, he did so in novella-sized chunks.  It was a successful strategy at the time.  At the time, though, there were not yet millions of ebook titles o...

Time to delete myself from another few Facebook groups administered by people who are "successful" writers only because they have produced mailing-list fans of 50,000 people, 10,000 of whom will buy anything by the writer.  Yet these same writers have the gall to give,...

I'm sure that if frequenters of internet blogs checked out the posts about two weeks ago, they got an overload about gun violence, especially mass shootings, in America, in the wake of Dayton and El Paso.  I decided to wait before posting again about anything, and poss...

I really want to attempt to avoid politics and religion here when possible.  That stuff belongs in my novels where the plot requires it.  But lately...

What's going on in Washington is bizarre.  I often wonder what George Orwell would make of it.  On both sides of...

I have nothing against religion, although it may appear at times otherwise in my writing.  However, I can't stand seeing "evangelists" who are nothing more than bad actors.  And bad actors, if you've been paying attention to current television and releases from Hollywo...

Since running a Facebook ad campaign for my most recent release, BEFORE THE WINDS OF SPRING, I've received a dozen "likes" and even a couple "loves" in the mix.

However, two respondents found the ad not to their liking.  They clicked the ad link, which took them to the...

Happy Independence Day, to any American who reads this.  If you're British, my condolences for your historic loss.  However, I don't think you'd want to have to regulate Chicago, Los Angeles, or Detroit nowadays, anyway.

Speaking of those living on opposite sides o...

Something like a month ago, I received my 10th review for BLOOD SACRAMENT.  It took over two years to "leap" from 9 to 10 reviews on Amazon.  It just looks a bit more legitimate in double digits, but it really hasn't helped in way of downloads, sales, page reads.  It j...

I'm a member of several writing-related groups at Facebook, nearly none of which are doing me any good.  So I'll be going through and doing some "spring-cleaning" soon.  That's a euphemistic phrase for bailing the hell out of most of the groups.  Some are full of brand...
