Summertime Reading

Posted on

It’s hard to believe that summer is actually here!  I know that in most areas of the country, school ended a few weeks ago, but here in Western New York, school just finished up last week. Now, like so many other parents in the world, I will have to face that wonderful phrase that is […]

Getting From Here to There

Posted on

I heard recently that it takes writers approximately 15 years to reach the pinnacle of their profession.  This would mean that since my first book was released in 2012 that I can expect to reach best seller status around 2027.  But what of the interim time?  How do I best get from here to there?  […]

Time Will Tell

Posted on

I can’t believe that I am the only person who when I start a new endeavor frets about how well it will do.  I really think that this is human nature.  the hard part here is the waiting: waiting for sales to occur, waiting for someone to acknowledge your accomplishment, waiting for the final vote […]

General or Specific?

I was in the public library a few days ago, and as is my custom, I went over and browsed the used books that were for sale.  As a voracious reader, I am always looking for new material to read, so I tend to buy a few used books per week here. As I scanned […]

What’s in a Name?

I’m finding myself facing a dilemma:  I have the first book of my new series about done, but I don’t have a title for it yet. Choosing a title for your latest work is a daunting task.  Why? you ask.  Let’s start with the old adage about judging a book by its cover.  When you […]

Read, Reread, Repeat

Have you ever read a book and as soon as you finished it, you started to read it again?  This has happened to me several times over the past few years, but I am thinking about it right now because it just happened again. I will start off by saying that I have been a […]

What Defines Us?

Posted on

I was looking for a lunch book (one to read while eating) today when I made an interesting discovery about myself.  When it comes time to watch a movie, I almost always go for the comedy (HEA’s run a close second), when I listen to a CD for enjoyment it is often a comedian that […]

Boldly Going Where I’ve Never Gone Before

Posted on

When I was much younger, I would often watch episodes (re-runs) of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek, and think about Capt. James T. Kirk’s words: “To boldly go where no man has gone before.”  I am sorry to say that as of yet, I’ve never been the first person to explore any ‘new’ place, but I […]
