What I Am Reading

The Cartel by E.G. Manetti

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AGNFHJA

Imagine, if you will, being punished for the sins of your father...

After his criminal actions have earned him his final draught, you and your immediate family must also be punished in the eye of society. In this world it is not enough to be shamed by the memory and realization that your own father broke the law and…

Removing my novel from KDP Select to widen the market--Amazon Prime members should borrow now.

I'll soon be removing my novel from KDP select so that I can widen the markets, perhaps even submit it to a publisher.  Before I do, I'm announcing it beforehand so that Amazon Prime members can borrow it before it becomes unavailable to the Lending Library.

Feature Your Book at the Top of This Website - FREE

In answer to a member's question about getting featured as one of the five books at the top of this network, here's what I wrote:

I need two things for any book you want featured here for free:

1. Its Amazon ASIN or ISBN number.

2. And the book cover saved here on the network with a dimension of 100 pixels x 150 pixels.

I would need the link to the cover here on the network (it'll look something like this:…

Easter Joy

It has been a long Lent.  For some families who have recently lost loved ones to disasters, illness and the whole gamut of human vulnerability Lent may be just beginning, but Lent, like everything has an end.  That is the really amazing thing about life.

The argument I hear most often for why I don’t need God is something along the lines that either God isn’t doing a good enough job, what with all the suffering we face, or that we can overcome suffering on our own power – if…

The Flounder Family Chapter 12

Jettison tiptoed into the kitchen and put his finger to his lips.  Dove stared at him with a half smile and a bemused expression.  “So what? You’ve robbed a bank or something?”

Jettison pulled two hand-woven baskets from behind his back.  They were filled with various candies and small surprises.  Dove’s eyebrows rose.  She whispered, “Those baskets look…well…authentic.  Where’d you get them?”

Jettison set one down at Tasha’s place and the other at Kiddo’s.  He looked at his…

The Flounder Family Chapter 11

“So Bensen, are you ready?”

Bensen looked at his brother-in-law and wondered if he was joking.  “Is anyone really ready for this kind of a commitment?”

Jettison smiled.  “Well, it’s a job and you need a job, right?”

Bensen shook his head.  “But a school bus driver?  Why, they might kill me!”

“You’re the adult.  Besides, you’re only taking the pre-schoolers back and forth in the morning.  It’s not like you have to drive them to another state.  They are all local…

In Absentia

Since my last post, almost four weeks ago, I have done very little in respect of writing, promotion & blogging etc., simply because there was so much going on in my life that I couldn’t give my full attention to what is mainly a hobby. My cancer treatment was drawing to a close but still leaving me washed out; we were getting close to the date when we handed over our house at the notary to the new owners, and we moved into our rented accommodation and picked up a second-hand car which we…

Never pay for a review

Though I’ve touched on this subject before on my blog I think it warrants repeating. I will never pay someone to read and review one of my books. Period! Most paid reviewers give glowing reviews on the books they read even if the book is not up to par. Why? Because they want your money and repeat business. Think about it. Would you pay someone a second…
