For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
Over the summer I examined the scope and pace of marketing for my books, and in that time I tweaked the books a bit, tried to find other venues to sell them from, and in September so far I have seen an improvement in sales which has had nothing whatever to do with that effort. It was a matter of sheer luck. I happened to do some conferences at which books were the primary focus. And I also gave away some inventory which had been languishing in the garage, with the…Continue

It was very exciting last week when my contemporary suspense novel, DROP OUT hit #5 on the paid Amazon best seller list. I was thrilled to have Nicholas Sparks as my #4 competitor. How I got to this list is no secret. I booked promotional spots on high-traffic websites and spent the days leading up to the spots marketing and promoting my a*s off. I stayed at that #5 position for an entire 36 hours before slowly slipping back into the 100’s; about where I am now.
Did I ever in…Continue

Amazing! Just when I thought my writing career was over; just when I started to slip into a deep, dark hole of despair; a spark of opportunity reignites it. It started months ago when I realized that pumping out twelve novels in a three year period can sometimes create immature and unseasoned work. So, after I finished my last novel I decided to take time off from writing and take a fresh look at my large collection of work.
I began by re-reading and editing my entire three…Continue

Ever once in a while I have to examine what is working and what is not. I had published this book with a darker cover, which turned out to be too dark. So now I am going into the depths of the plotline, and flame was the best I could do. A man on fire, discovering his heritage and his purpose in life.
"Change is the only constant in the universe." A tale of martial arts adventure, science fiction and vampire romance. In 1984, a reporter's assignment to cover the war between the…Continue

SILENT INVASION - Currently #1 ON AMAZON
As most authors now know Amazon is going to start paying authors for the amount of pages read and not for each complete book. I’m not certain how I feel about this. On the plus side, it could free readers up to explore more books if they are only going to pay for it if they like it. On the negative, most casual readers never finish a book or do it over a long period of time. And how about if readers skip a section? What will it do to royalties?
Of course, there are other…Continue

The day finally arrived for me to leave Winterberg and see what lies beyond this small community I had spent the past few years in. In September 1956, I left the quiet town of Winterberg and headed to Mannheim to study to be a nurse. I was eighteen and I had just graduated from high school. It was an exciting time in my life.
My mother had decided to take me to Mannheim in person. We could see my father, who lived there, but my thoughts were about my new beginning in a new city.…
