Let's Write!

I've been trying to get a friend of mine into being a narrator for Audible for two years now, and he finally has bought himself a proper mic and set up to give it a shot. I had had someone do 'It's A Springtime Thing' a few years back, but the audio wouldn't pass ACX tech. Lee is going to give it a... Sign in to see full entry.

I joined Bookbub to widen my exposure. I've gotten some notes and probably some sales out of some very minimal effort, so it was worth the free admission. As I wrote some place here yesterday, I'm beginning a rewrite of my 2013 political dystopian novel. That story came in at about 65,000 words, and... Sign in to see full entry.

I was about to take my animals out for a walk in the snow when it hit me. When I'm in this kind of mood, I need to write another murder story.

I collect quotes. Most are just for posting here. I find a quote, sometimes make a comment about it, and viola, I have a post. Sometimes I collect them for additions to lead-ins or segues to stories and chapters. This quote is an example. This would make a nice quote for the Utopian/dystopian story...

I've been working on getting my 'inner author' to answer the call one side of my brain is sending out, but the other side has the incoming ringer shut down. In my entire life, I can only remember one other time where I couldn't hammer out 600 words without even trying. As Dorothy Parker wrote in her... Sign in to see full entry.

ACX University Video

I may have posted this 25 minute video before, and if so, I apologize. This one is on promoting your material. If you've been here long at all, I am constantly promoting something.
