OK, I'll admit it - I'm confused. When I go to my own page and click on the nav for "BLOG" it takes me to the list of these posts that I create through 'posts'. When I try to edit the page called "BLOG" I get something totally different. Ah, well . . . Believing this will result in another "BLOG post," let me add what I think will be a current BLOG post. I have been promoting and writing,…

It's all on me, not you. But if you are a fan, and you want to help, hold me accountable. Feel free to send me an email (lupusgnome@hotmail.com), and ask if I finished my day's writing. My goal is to write an absolute minimum of 250 words/day this week (and the minimum target goes up each week). Yesterday I managed 495 words. If you drop me a line, I'll tell you how I did. If you hold me accountable at…

Hello, fans. Once again, I have good news, and I have bad news. First, the bad news. Book 3 sucks. I have re-written it 3 times, using two different approaches, and none of them work. Now, the good news. That process of re-writing and critically assessing finally led me back to where I began for this book. I will begin again, writing it as originally planned. The book will deal with the Travelers and their new home, Pairodice. I will…

My reason, excuse or rationalization (take your pick) for not having written as planned has been (and still is) a major remodel of our family room. Not only has that impacted me, the author; it has also had a major impact on my editor, my wife. On the positive side, it's going well, and the end result should be awesome. On the flip side of that, everything from the family room and a downstairs storage area has been piled in…

Think of people around you as clients; some external, some internal and others that are in your personal relationships. Why? Well, when you think of others as your clients, you may find yourself treating them in a different manner - provided superior customer service, if you will. Paying external clients are the most obvious, so let's move on to others. Even those providing YOU with a service can be viewed as clients; you let them know what you need, when…

My book signing at Postal Works on NW 185th went very well, just like last year. Met some wonderful people, the staff at Postal Works were awesome, we had a successful Small Business Saturday! (If you haven't been aware of or supporting Small Business Saturday/Shop Small, be sure to get on board next Thanksgiving Saturday! The small businesses in our communities give us a lot, often operating on very thin margins. We want to help them survive and thrive!) I…

As many of you may know, my second book, "There Used To Be Magic," came out in July, four months earlier than originally planned, just a smidgeon later than targeted (I missed my intended June deadline). It was out in time for the NW Book Festival, though. And so far, fan response has been wonderful. At least one person did have a "glitchy" spot or two, where they had to work to figure out what I had written because the…
