Publishers of two anthology series have arranged with https://www.astrobotic.com/ to land their books on the moon in mid-2021 on their …

Final Flight and Win-A-Kindle

   I've finally had to admit it. I'm over-committed. I never planned to spam my blog followers with daily ramblings. Twice or thrice a month would suffice. But I'm down to one post a month. So I changed the tagline in my posts to "An occasional blog". Truth is good. (Unless, of course, you're a …

Writing the short descriptive blurb for the promotion was hard. (Hell, I took 60,000 words to tell the story and now you want it in 70 words?) You see, there …

Beyond Beginnings: Sequels

A Good Year End In November 2016 I became a published novel author, building on my years as a short story writer.  Where do you go from there? You write the sequel. Actually, I started writing the sequel long before I published "Faces of Janus". It's already gone out to beta readers, for publication in Spring 2017. My …
