Global warming and the Oceans

Would you believe it if I told you that tropical fish are now swimming in temperate waters? Fish are coming up from the Caribbean. They have been seen as far north as Massachusetts. The oceans have been warming since 1975 and the experts now agree this is caused by human induced global warming. Here is an excerpt from Wake Up Call: Oceans Warming Up Showing why this phenomena is occurring: For one, ocean surface temperatures… Continue

It really is Monday! Dang!!!

Ya know, I have many days go by when life just kind of sits there, isn't wonderful but it ain't bad. Then along comes a Monday from hell and I remember that 'boring' isn't necessarily bad. In my other job where creativity is NOT rewarded, I get to experience people who aren't having so much fun at what they do, and now and then they feel the need to make everyone miserable.

Hawkeye once said when he was rescuing a dying soldier, "Don't let the Bastard Win!" I remember as a kid not…

A New Twist to Scrapbooking

I predict that hundreds of years from now, when they dig up ruins of our time, they’ll find scrap books everywhere. They’ll reveal signs of our culture and our values.

Has Scrap-booking become a fever? A craze? A fad? Or a meaningful and creative way to immortalize our cherished memories?

I’d like to introduce a not-so-new way to use this unique way to arrange memorable events.…

Fighting the Traffic Jams of Life

Back in my hometown of La Paz, Bolivia, traffic can roil anyone’s nerves. Red lights are commonly ignored. Stop signs do not exist. But the horn does, one loud beep alerts those on the crossing street you’re coming through.

Amazingly, serious accidents are not common. Fender benders, yes. A cab ride through those crowded streets promises an adventure with unexpected episodes worth writing…

Last night Annie Lawrence, a new "friend" from and I connected and did some masterminding. We are both coaches and authors. What a great session we had! I learned more in an hour with her than I have with many paid professionals. She's certainly done her work. Seems I've got some catching up to do as an author ~ one being, up-grading both my books so they'll be what I envisioned them to be AND getting going on another I have in mind.

I will have to make this very brief. I wish I was able to write more. However my health has been really going haywire, with my heart and lungs. I dont have the strength to sit everyday and write or even work on my own books. Iam planning before my health gets much worse it to put one book together of all my poems from the past 50 years. I also would like to get finished my three other novels that are halfway complete..

Please bare with me friends..Iam not ignoring any of you. Sometime…

Both traditionally and independently published?

I have been traditionally published (thrice over) by a mid-size publisher and have independently published one book (with two more before year's end).

For those of you that have done both, I am curious as to your reasoning for switching. I could most definitely get another book traditionally published. I decided I wanted more control and more money.

If you moved from traditional to independent, why?

Braving a Quill Flogging

I boxed up my ego, my pride of accomplishment, my certainty that I am a good writer, my belief that anyone who feels otherwise simply is out of touch with reality, and submitted my first chapter of Vamonos!, my second novel, to Ray Rhamey’s blog “Flogging the Quill” – “Turn the Page” critique.…

The Visitor has arrived

In this blog I'd like to some of my thinking behind

(a) how I got into writing fiction

(b) My experiences in writing

(c) Lessons learned in going down the self publishing route.

I am committed to this becoming (at least in the early stages) a daily exercise, so I won't lay it all out on the table just yet.

Today, I thought I would give you a little background as to what brought me to this point in my life journey.

I was born a a very young age, the…

Spinning My Wheels?

I can't decide what is next? Is this writing thing for real? I keep getting small blessings from God from people who have been touched by my book, but it's not enough. Ungrateful? Probably. But, I want to wrestle with God like Jacob. I want to say, "Okay, God. I've done what you have asked now--what?! Bring this to fruition for me. Show me where all of this fits into my life. Who am I? Who will I be? Is this my career?" Yet, even when I feel like quitting, something deep within my being won't… Continue

Self-Publishing a Graphics-Intensive Book

Has anyone self-published a book with lots of graphics and photos? I self-published one of my books, but it had only a few graphics, and it was years ago before POD. The challenge I'm wondering about is the size of the files and getting them to the printer. My book would be about 100 pages, and it would have at least one or two graphics or photos on each page, and it would be in color. It seems extremely expensive. Any experience with this?
