It seams the search engine optimization is kicking in after all, and it will only get better over time.

Every morning I jump from bed, come down to my office, and check my stats on my various sites. It’s…

Mark Cooper-The Shadow of al-Khayal

The Shadow of al-Khayal


I know – the heading makes it sound like a Lovecraftian pastiche, but bear with me – there’s a point here somewhere.


My wife asked me when I started writing. After some serious thought I answered that I probably started in earnest sometime around 2004 but I’d been writing off and on since late 2001.

The world has undoubtedly taken a huge leap from the time that the Internet was created. We could certainly speak of a before and after in terms of communication and technology. The network of networks is omnipresent in all activities of our daily life. It has  gotten into our daily lives in a swift and fierce way

Come on readers!

The first ads of my winter campaign are live. The combined cost for both was $100. They will run for the next two weeks right on the home pages of these sites. This should give the ads about 100,000 views at least.

Now, I’m not expecting to sell 250 books because of these ads, which is what I’d need to break even, what I’m looking for now is exposure, plain…
