I’ve learned when it comes to events, people will attend if they want to.
Let’s talk about the hot topic of the last week the Christian Book Expo. They set up this wonderful expo and the readers didn’t come.
This is the question every event planner wants to know. We can debate about it for months, but the real deal is, they didn’t want to come. If they knew about it and it sounded interesting enough, they came. If they knew and didn’t want… Continue

I try to stay in communication with all of you on a regular basis. I hope each of you find blessing and joy this day.
Last night I set up a pretty cool tool for my book and I want to share it with you all. I am not trying to sell you anything, and I am not seeking anything for myself here.

The baby was a white fist of flesh. Mama had placed the ultrasound photo atop her dresser in a sterling silver frame. That night, when the pain bent her over in the kitchen, I imagined that same white fist punching her insides black-and-blue. When Daddy called from the hospital to tell us she’d lost the baby, my brother Cyrus said I shouldn’t worry. He said the baby didn’t feel any pain, that at nine weeks it wasn’t anything but a ball of meat squirming in Mama’s stomach. He said it hadn’t even… Continue

(A Heart That Devises Wicked Imaginations)
“These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”-Proverbs 6:16-19

After hours of working and writing, I become spent. I come home and have dinner with my wife and kids. I will then proceed to the living room where my computer sits. I the check my e-mails and whatever else comes to mind. Finally, I like to go over to my T.V. set and turn on the Wii.
My favorite past time is playing games. This really seams to relax me and I tend to get a better nights sleep after an hour of playing games. I know it sounds crazy, but that is what works for me when I… Continue

“Burning Embers” was officially launched with a signing and reading party.
I read bunches of stories, including “Dunkin’ the Barbarian” from the book, and a brand new story called “Ciao Baby”.
Thanks to chef Leslie Owens for providing a fine, fine dinner for the audience, mistress Kathy for the mixed drinks (sad to say I didn’t get one because I had to work), and to everyone who came to listen to stories and get a book.
One of the first things anybody notices or remarks about when traveling in the UK is the fact that we drive on the left hand side of the road. However there is history and reasoning behind this.
In days of old logic dictated that when people passed each other on the road they should be in the best possible position to use their sword to protect them selves. As most people are right handed… Continue
