Change You Can Believe In:

I know it has been a while since I had the time to get on Book Marketing Network. The site is rough on my dial-up connection, and now there's that stupid Macromedia player on every page that really jams me up!

For everyone interested, I have written a new short story and posted it for everyone to read at Author's Den.

Change You Can Believe In

It is a tale of the future, 40 years from…

Return from Book Tour and Out Again

Aloha Everyone!

I've recently returned from a book signing tour and long-overdue family visit. Once returned home, I found orders for more books in the mail and have been joyfully handling that big job of autographing, packing and shipping. Had hoped to be back on TWB soon. However, I am now preparing to leave for another trip - to Honolulu for at least a week. That should be my last trip of the year. From then on, I've got two books that need a final run-thru before publishing. I've… Continue

Press Releases for Book Marketing

Sending out press releases concerning your writing and book are key to successfully promoting it to a wider audience. You can write a press release about anything that is newsworthy: the release of your book, a book signing, its release in a different format, reprinting your book, etc. The key is to make it newsworthy. Once you have your press release, send it out over the various press release wires. I've put together a list of press release sites that all have free options so you don't have… Continue

A great big thank you...

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who dropped by at the Utamaro Revealed book signing on Saturday. I would also like to express my deepest gratitude to Sarah and Annie Bavin, of the Willow Tree in Weston-super-Mare, for making me feel so welcome. It was a splendid day and I had a great time. It was lovely to have the signing at a venue where creativity is so actively encouraged and nurtured, and to take part in such lively discussion.

It's a very simple one, and it's in Dutch. I'm from the Netherlands, 37 years old and i wrote a book about selfpublishing. I'm used to visiting American forums about writing. They are more numerous and way more informative than our writerssites.

Could you do me a favor? Could you comment/view my trailer?

The music is played by a friend of mine, i love how he plays the guitar.

I also have a website at I made… Continue

Dog Torture

Ok. I confess. That was a mean tease. I'd never torture dogs.

Unless you count making them look ridiculous.

If you could use a laugh (and anyone with a 401K these days definitely can!) pop over to my MySpace and enjoy a slideshow of my beloved dogs in pirate costumes. If you have some funny pet costumes to share, please send them to me and I'll add them to the… Continue

Just a four letter word with powerful meaning

Something to hang onto when there is no rope left

Nothing tangible, nothing you can touch

Yet we cling to it, some for dear life


HOPE, the little four letter word

It has kept many holding on to it,

When there was no reason to trust its magic,

Nor its ability to keep them from falling

Can’t imagine the… Continue
