I read an interesting blog post
today that states "First and foremost, a self-published novel does not a published author make." I find that statement most disturbing. It goes on to talk about the expectations of the author. If one just wants to put their novel out for a few friends then it is okay to use a vanity press. But you won't ever sell a "zillion" books. She also… Continue

By Bill McDonald, President: American Authors Association.
Poet Kevin Brian Wright is a romantic in the best sense of that word. He captures the divine romance of life through his brilliant prose. His words come across as if they were written by a 15th century monk who is high on the spiritual bliss of Holy Communion. One can almost feel this inner joy and "light" he projects with images from his words and phrasing.
Wright's poetry evokes those same sacred feelings that… Continue

Who Will Save the World? “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” (2 Timothy 3:1) The word perilous means dangerous or exposure to the risk of being injured, destroyed, or lost. The rest of the verses express where most of the danger shall come from and also the reason for the promised peril that shall come. “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,… Continue

Whenver I'm sitting down - which isn't very often - I feel compelled to be reading something. Anything. Even the back of a cereal box. I've loved books since mom and dad read aloud to me as a little sprout. If I'm not reading, I'm usually writing. My newest title, Guys and Other Near Humans
was released last spring by Uncial Press.
I've authored ten books to date, including… Continue

The air has turned chilly here in the Las Vegas desert and that's got me thinking about the holidays. This week's issue incorporates a bit of that theme with ideas on gift and thanks giving. I also share a short piece on my experience with Web browsers.
We're into the first week of NaNoWriMo and it's going well. I've got about 10k words in a new novel. Very exciting. It bothers me that the NaNoWriMo Website has been overwhelmed since the start of the month, but I guess we all should… Continue

It’s snowing again. Big wet flakes plunge from the evening sky to the streets below. From my fourth floor window the scenery looks as peaceful as the pictures on the Christmas cards Emma keeps on her desk. But the new layer of snow reminds me of the bodies piling up in the morgue. I close my eyes—each victim’s face flashes before them.
I curse under my breath and try to make sense of the killings.
Superstitions and biblical prophesies—old wives’ tales told to scare the… Continue
