A Writer’s Necessary Diversion

We all need to get away from our computers—take a break from hours of writing—clear our heads. I’m usually home alone during the day so I can get a lot done. But it’s uncanny how one of our three dogs, the 1-year old Golden Retriever, knows when it’s time for Dad to get up and do something else for while … like play! Continue reading

The Ground Shifts – Authors Stumble – KDP/KU

kdp shiftThe name of the game now is to entertain, excite, and captivate the reader—for as many pages as possible – all the way to the very last page.  And that’s a good thing. 

Amazon’s new KDP / Kindle Unlimited (2.0),  is now paying out to authors based on total percentage of a given ebook’s pages being read, vs. the old system (1.0) where authors were paid for any book that got read above the 10% mark. It’s a dramatic change and, although some authors are fine with it, even thrilled that the playing field has Continue reading

Thank You Amazon!!

About two months Screen Shot 2013-09-01 at 5.02.20 PMago Amazon customer service emailed me and asked if I wanted to partake in a 1-day special promotion for my first 4 books (I have 9 released)  …. they said that my books would would sell for .99 cents (vs. the normal $4.99 price) — I figured – hey, it’s just one day, how could it hurt? 

Today (Sunday, may 31st, is the promotion day and I just found out (my wife called me) that my original book – Scrapyard Ship – written over two years ago – is now #1 in three Amazon categories and has reached a ranking of #81 out of ALL amazon ebooks…  wow … many thanks Amazon!!!

Call To Battle – AudioBook Now Available!

audiobookCtB_thumb_audio_thumbFor those that have listened to the other Scrapyard Ship audiobooks,  you’ll be happy to hear that the latest and final book of the series is now available at audible.com.

As great as I think these books are, the audiobooks take things to a whole new level. Personally I don’t read books anymore, I listen to them … after writing hours on end and then reading what I’ve written, I’m ready to just sit back and listen to a book. L.J. Ganser did a remarkable job on Call To Battle (like all the others) – so sit back, put your feet up and immerse yourself into the finale of the Scrapyard Ship series.
