The link below will take you to my Goodreads page with the second chapter of the third book of the Jonas Watcher series. "What's New in My Life" I use to share my non-writing activities geared towards getting my name and the name of my product out there as much as possible. But I also want people who have access to this blog to also have quick access to my Goodreads blog. I hope you enjoy reading the non-edited version a chapter at a time, and I would like to get any feedback you have. If you haven't read the first book, you can eMail me at email@example.com and let me know what eBook format you would like PDF, Nook, or Kindle and I will email it to you so you have some indication about the series.
In my early twenties, I purchased a course in writing from the "Famous Writers School". I could ill afford it at the time, but my wife supported my decision and we paid the money and I received the materials.
I did pretty good in the beginning, I received positive feedback and useful critics. Unfortunately, there was an assignment I just couldn't get my head wrapped around and I stalled. I did finish that assignment, but I never finished the course.
I took classes in writing from the local community college and I did well academically. How good I was as an author besides classmates saying "That's great" and the teacher providing me with some amount of praise, was an unknown.
I should note that my wife was positively supportive, but when something didn't work for her in my writing, she was honest and that helped me reevaluate what I was writing.
Life got in the way, and I had a career as a programmer analyst which paid substantially enough that I needed …
let's see if I can get a feel for how many people are really out
there. Hmmm... I
am working on my fifth book. It is not a part of the Jonas Watcher
Detective Adventure, although the fifth book in that series is in the
works. I am introducing a new series called "In Her Majesty's
Service". The first book is called "M'Lady's Gentleman".
It is an Agatha Wingate Spy Adventure. The
series takes place in the nineteenth century in England. I
am providing the prologue for the book below. The stories will have
some historical value but they are fiction. What I need is to find a
cover artist who will also provide black and white illustrations. My
budget is $150 per book. I need a cover and 6 to 8 B/W illustrations.
I have the basic wording for the cover and I have shown here. I am
open to change suggestions. I am looking to do six short novels this
year in this series and each will have a cover and illustrations. I
am looking for a sample of wo…
I am working on the fourth book in the Jonas Watcher Detective Adventure series. The first thing I will share is that I got a professional book cover creator. The cost is affordable and the results are great. His designs have given my stories a brand that is repeatable and I like the look and feel the books now have. Additionally, the books come in three different formats; eBook, paperback book, and audio book. My fourth book will be released in July 2017. I am starting promotions and advertising in advance of the release to generate "buzz". This, in turn, is supposed to generate more sales which will help pay for me to continue to write. For me personally, it means my readership has increased and hopefully more people are reading my novels and enjoying them. In order to set up books for pre-order, you need a cover, you need a synopsis, and you need to be writing a novel and it will be available on the release date. In this case, it is July…
