A Tribute in Poetry and Prose to a Phenomenal Singer

The Virgin Islands born singer Jon Lucien, who passed August 18, 2007, was a master of smooth jazz before that term became the definitive one it is today, and many of our best contemporary singers credit him as a major influence. For a tribute in poetry and prose to his life and music, please click or paste this url:…

"Raping Louisiana: A Diary of Deceit " is almost ready for publication. Just reviewed the galleys and chose a cover which I have put here for your viewing pleasure. There have been many recent articles about the continued failure of the government to address the crying needs of those in despair in Louisiana and hopefully this book will open some eyes. The book has had two great reviews and if anyone here lives in Louisiana and can give guidance as to possible places to promote the book, that… Continue

Oral Tradition: The Collected Memory of Elderly People

200 years ago, if you wanted to hear a story, you wouldn't switch on the TV, and probably wouldn't even curl up with a book. You would sit at the feet of those older than you, and listen to the stories they tell. In the old days, wisdom was passed on by word of mouth: stories, tales and legends from one generation to another.

This oral tradition is dying out, with the advent of books, newspapers and the internet.

I think it is one of the responsibilities of those of us who are…

How creative is your marketing?

I have been reading, reading, and reading books regarding marketing, promoting, and selling your book(s). What I have tried and what works is the difference between night and day. The best idea that I have used and it has worked for each book that I had published was to invite people to the book signing. How?

When I had my first book signing at Barnes and Noble I was afraid no one would show up or buy my book. I sent invitations to my friends and neighbors and hoped they would show…

Ghostly Tales of Kentucky

Ghostly Tales of Kentucky was not my first attempt at writing a book. I had tried serveral times before, but never finished them. This was was my first finished work and how surprised I was to find a publisher who actually accepted it on the first try.

Ghostly Tales of Kentucky is a trip around Jefferson County and Kentucky, including stories told by my grandparents, parents, and my own experiences with the paranormal. There have been times at family gatherings when my dad would tell…

Here I Am....

What a thoroughly fun website to wander around....I'm happy to be here and to begin exploring. I just joined my first group here and have received some invitations to be "friends" with several folks. I have spent the last year recuperating from a serious illness so my SECOND book in the mystery series should be out and would have been out were it not for that little "bump in the road".....I seem to be back in the saddle again though so with some luck, this time next year AT LEAST one more in my… Continue

Small Brag and Celebration

I'm pleased to announce that my publisher in Japan, Discover 21, has just optioned another book from me.

The working title, in English, is "Simple Keys to Creating the Success You Desire" - Practical ideas you can use to achieve the life of your dreams. Of course in Japanese it will be entirely different.

That makes a total of five of my books in Japanese. Strange that I only have two here in the US:-)

Odd business, the book game:-)

BTW, If you're not… Continue

So here's a sneak peek...

Writing; the mountains and the valleys

I was thinking just today about the all the highs and lows of the writing life and came to one conclusion. I wouldn't change it if I could. My only regret is that I started writing publicly at a ah...ahem, later time in life. Okay, I'm old, you happy now?

One of the "highs" about writing is the feedback you get from time to time. Someone will be kind enough to write and say, "I just loved what you wrote about bla...bla..." and you read it six or seven times just to get that…

Typing "The End"

Advice for Writers: Typing "The End"

There is a time in every author's life when he or she experiences a sudden pang of loss, and sweet sorrow descends like soggy tissues on a broken heart.

Man or woman, romance or action writer, sensitive poet or straight-shootin' scene churner, it hits us one and all.

It's the moment we reach at the end of our long suffering days, those focused, driven, passionate hours, plastered with outpourings of words that evolved…

Verifiable Evidence

Greetings to all of my friends. It's time for me to get serious about marketing Loren Douglas' latest detective story entitled, "Verifiable Evidence." As I'm sitting here typing this entry, I have my head phones on listening to Tanya Tucker "Greatest Hits, 1990 - 1992" album. She is sooo good. Call me a nut but I can listen to her by the hour. The same album.

I started a new blog. Everybody says to limit one's website to just one subject. I use a blog because it's so much easier.…

Ignore Negative Comments

I have four published books. The first question is always, "Who is your publisher?" When I tell them PublishAmerica and Jawbone Publishing. There response is, "Oh, you self-published."

My response is, "I used an alternative way to have my book published." Some how these individuals think that your book does not meet the standard of a published author. It is unfortunate that writers cannot support those of us whose goal is to have our books in print. Trust me, a traditional publisher…

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR 'Notes From the Mothership"

Wonder Woman

Posted by sealingwax at 10:08 am on August 24th, 2007 in .

Look for a new book coming soon by one of the most amazing women on the planet. No, she's not a candidate for political office--not yet, anyway. Running for office is probably one of the few things she hasn't attempted.
What makes her so remarkable?
