For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
April 21, 2012 I was invited to attend the Women of Peace United Methodist Parish New Life Conference at the Methodist Church in Van Horne, Iowa. It was a fun day of food and fellowship with a cheerful Spring feel. The table coverings and decorations were pastels for spring. I won one of the decorations by picking up one of the few pink napkin in the stack when I was…Continue

I grew up on the west side of Cincinnati. When I think back to my childhood, I realize it’s no wonder I became a mystery writer. My parents, younger brother and I lived in an old two-story house with all kinds of…Continue

No writer was born with a magical pad and pen in his or her hand that guaranteed them a bestseller. For most, it has taken years to hone their craft on the road towards becoming an award winning novelist. Evolving as a writer takes dedication, hard work, and an eagerness to learn all there is to know about the art of writing.
Several ways to evolve as a writer:

Preachers, teachers, and missionaries of the gospel are to share the good news of Christ to the lost. But what if they are responsible for turning those who look to them for spiritual guidance away from Him?…

If you would just take a moment out of your busy schedule to watch
and observe the people that you come in contact with from day to day, you
might see that many of them are suffering from depression, an identity
crisis, and/or weight issues. You do not have to be a psychologist to realize

Marinda Askes: M is for MP3, but where do I shelve it??
The store has been live for a month and it has been an interesting four
weeks. It seems that people don’t quite know what to make of South African
audio books in downloadable format.
The response from readers who have browsed our digital shop has ranged from
“Finally! Here you are. South African audio books!” to “OK. So when do
you post my CD?” or even to “So…Continue

Hi everyone I hope you are all having a amazing weekend. I checked my kick starter project athttp://www.kickstarter.com/projects/moordragonarts/ashley-and-daniyyels-amazing-adventure
and noticed that there are only four backers for a tool of $360.00, this is a far cry from the goal that I set to get my book and its positive and inspirational message out to as many children as possible.
The message in the first book is " it doesn't matter how small you are or how pig the…Continue

Finding your voice. That does sound so euphoric, but it has a good ring to
it. Take the example below:
Like most actors living in London, I attended classes at the Actor’s
Centre, in an attempt to hone my skills. I especially liked the one-on-one
sessions with a vocal coach. My vocal coach was always extremely
interested in my accent as she didn’t meet many South African actors. She
said she had never had an Afrikaans student at all. Well…Continue

When Art Imitates Life
According to Wikipedia, The quote, “Art imitates Life” “has its most notable proponent in Oscar Wilde, who held in his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying that ‘Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life’.”
As an African American, I see things differently. I’ve…Continue
That's right. Episode 3 is here. Like I said before, Olivia has such a great voice as an author. As I encourage her to explore and develop it, it might take a little longer to get these stories done. With her imagination and charm, I think it is worth the wait.

I love the new cover for my Kindle version of FROSTPROOF. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m slowly taking back all my rights to my paperbacks and republishing only electronically. I believe the traditional book is going the way of CD’s and I’m excited to be at the threshold of this new medium. With my seventh novel soon to be published electronically, I’ve now got more than half of my books out there for the entire world to purchase. It’s a pretty cool feeling. Once I send the new FROSTPROOF off…Continue

Writers struggle with how to write the introduction to a story. If the introduction is dull and unexciting, the reader is apt to put it down, never to even read the second paragraph. If the introduction is engaging and interesting, the reader will want to read further to see what will happen next in…Continue

Well, it's finally arrived...the reality of actually knowing "Powers Not Delegated" is going to be published. I'm like the dog that chased the car, caught it and now overwhelmed with what to do with it. But, as a first time fiction author I'm sure I'll muddle through.
I'm quite sure most of who have been through this lean back and think, "This guy ain't got a clue what he's in for." After the pre-production conference call, I would have to agree.…Continue
