Marketing a Book?

On the way home from Denver after Christmas, my son Kenton and I discussed marketing his up-coming release Unikra. He's convinced his marketing plan will work, so we discussed his strategies. He likes networking and has set out to create a dynamic network of people who will buy his book. He's 13 and already has a vast following at and it continues to grow.

Blogs on Blogspot Hacked!

Even changing them to a different ID and increasing the security level of my passwords didn't prevent the blogs from being hacked and porn dumped on. YIKES.

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…

Exhaustion suffocates creativity...

Today was hot and horrid, as days go. Nothing particularly bad happened, just one of those days that beats you to a pulp and leaves you struggling for air.

When I got up this morning I had many things on my todolist for today. I figured I'd whip them off one by one and be done by noon, when I needed to start playing taxi driver for the kids, but that didn't happen. About an hour into my list the phone began to ring, life began to get in my way, and I suddenly realized God had a…

Just outside the vacuum...

This morning I was busy posting to my website a new article I'd written and I realized I hadn't edited it completely. There was a paragraph at the bottom that didn't make as much sense as I had hoped it would. My cutsy details were missing definition and comprehension, so I took them out.

Then I considered how often I find myself editing out a 20 second slot of work on a book... It's pretty often. When the reality is that what I wrote to begin with belongs in the book. But, editing…

I'm actually rather excited about this one. I've been putting out reports and articles online for several months now, and this one has been a high-impact seller in just one day. When I checked my sales earlier I was amazed at the number already sold, and not even…
