For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
You’ve taken the time, energy, and care to write a book—laboring intensively over rewrites, editing judiciously, choosing your words wisely, and polishing the final product to perfection. And now that your work is ready to share with an audience, it’s time to tackle the crucial business of bringing book and reader together. That means marketing. And not surprisingly, when it comes to marketing books, it’s all about words.
In the advertising business, they call it “the sizzle that…Continue

That question probably sounds more than a little strange. Far better questions would be:
When the term “being” came into use during the 14th century, the church had decided that God and angels were self-aware “beings” of the highest order. Genesis said that humans had been made in the image of…Continue

I have spent some time going through the letters, emails and messages I have received from friends around the world over the last month or so endorsing my new book, "The Foundations."
I knew it was needed because I couldn't find anything on the bookshop shelves that really provided for the needs of a new Christian to grow in Biblical understanding of what it meant to be a Christian and what was required in order to grow towards maturity, however I didn't really think it was that…

Post from JR's notes-
In "The Long Road to Extradition," part of the plot involves Nicholas discovering his sexuality and falling in love. In the time reference of the book, being gay was still a very difficult subject for a small town to embrace of it's citizens. In fact, it could be downright dangerous. While the gay community has made tremendous strides in equal rights, there is obviously still alot of work to do.
There is a reason I portrayed the MC, Nicholas as gay. In…

If it wasn't for my dad, I wouldn't be here. Think about it. Some forty-six years ago I lept from one of his testicles and swam like crazy to fertilise my mother's egg, and from simple biology classes you know the rest. He worked hard to see that myself, along with my three siblings and mother were clothed, sheltered, and fed. He's a quiet, taciturn type from whom I've inherited my relatively tall stature, and love of reading and cryptic crosswords. But I do wish to the universal powers…Continue

What’s really behind our desire for consolation? In his book, Three Seconds; The Power of Thinking Twice, author Les Parrott III, Ph.D. ties our desire for comfort to our first impulse to keep the comfortable status quo. Although the book is mainly directed toward success in business, the principles Parrott…Continue
