The Importance Of Book Cover Design - Setting Out Your Ideas

I worked with my publisher to produce a design brief, so we could get quotes for the cover design of 'Gate of Tears' - I hadn't realised that it was such a detailed job.


In the end we found a great designer, but even so, he didn't read or absorb the brief thoroughly and it seems there was a bit of to-ing and fro-ing. I ended up with something completely different to what I…

Hot! Hot! Hot!

And the heat wave continues around here. There's only one thing good about it being this hot outside, I don't feel guilty staying inside. Anyway, the writing life continues heat or no heat. I blasted out another chapter of INSECTLAND today, actually it's a re-read. I wrote the original way back in 1997 as part of a three book series. the first book TIM MADISON GALACTIC WARRIOR is available right now at:…

Gate of Tears is Here

I was finishing the last chapters of my thriller  'Gate of Tears' in March this year, in an apartment in Malta, overlooking the sea. British Tornadoes were flying on their way to and from bombing missions in LIbya, and I could see warships and ferries bringing refugees from Libya into Malta (just a couple of hundred miles away). The main political and superpower action in 'Gate of…

Rie Sheridan Rose "The Fairy GodFather" The Author's Lab/ Collaboration

Have you ever done a writing collaboration? Hands please… okay here is a sampling of my experience working with Rie Sheridan Rose. First off let’s just reaffirm the fact that I am just a blogger, blogtalk radio host and occasional ”author”. I put that in parentheses because I mostly write the way I would talk, simple, to the point, not much in the way of large adjectives, painting pictures with words is not my “thing”. I think we can agree with that, can’t we?

Generally the way we…

Getting rich is a marathon not a sprint.


Okay, I got over the woman who bashed me. Thanks to all who responded with their own stories of jerks.

So, in my continued quest to get rich and famous I've come up with a few marketing ideas. First off, though not an original idea, I've decided to get bookmarks made that have pics. of my books and my website, plus info to buy them. I'm putting some at the front desk of the hotel I work at and I am going to local stores to ask if I can put them on the counter so people can…

Impeccant:The Reprisal series by Sam Lang

Trust me I have plenty of skulls’ heads to make covers for this series. Did the eyeball catch your eye on this one? The best part of any of my covers is they invite you to read the content inside, which is really the best part. Sam Lang delivers an amazing second installment to his Reprisal series of digital short stories. His ability to build tension is just amazing. The prose in the story is set at a nice cadence and overall the story just rocks. Each read I get on this series further…

Childhood Shenanigans

Some things are not so good at the moment.  First of all, I read the the paper that Hugh Hefner's ex spoke about their life between the sheets, and said he lasted, 'like, two seconds.'  Hey, he lasted.  I thought only arteries got hard in men his age.  But it gave me a visual I just really did not need.  And neither did you, reader, and for that I apologise.


My uncle is sick, and gravely so.  I visited him yesterday, and stayed with my father and his sister.  But what was…

Revelation:Intangible series Cody Toye

I love to see what comes from this author next. Is it sci-fi, YA, kids, horror, I mean you never know what is coming at you from Cody Toye. Revelation is an excellent addition to his young Intangible Series. There is plenty of new stuff to grow his universe. The action is swift and moving; the characters are dynamic and incredibly different. The essence of the story is not the violence but the means of it. What are they gaining? Why? Who benefits? If this is not on your radar, you should get…
