What's a good way to screen books for review?

Lately, I have been offering fellow authors a trade: my review for yours. I now know why it’s so hard to get an agent’s attention. I had one tell me once, “I read until the first typo.” So far, I…Continue

Another good year at Bookstock

There is a distinctive change in my signings these days: I'm actually making money.

Most of us who write never talk about the pay, which is usually abysmal. We write because we must, and we write because we have something to say and want people to hear it. Money is nice, but no one being realistic expects to make a fortune.

Most of my signings over the years have ranged from quiet to excellent: before this year, probably the best one took place several years ago at the Borders…

Bookstock, 2014

Next week, from July 25 through July 27, I'll be signing my books at the annual Bookstock Literary Festival, held in Woodstock, Vermont. The event brings together literary notables (former U.S. poet laureate Billy Collins this year), Vermont writers and publishers, and, most importantly, readers. 

This will also be the first public signing of my newest effort, "Terror Strikes Downtown," in which crime reporter Ace Herron investigates the causes of a series of explosions which tear up…

Stephen, I would dearly appreciate it if you read part or all of my novel and would welcome any feedback which you may offer.  And I am really pleased that we have common interests.  My apprehension is that of a minor league player who has just signed for a major league team full of big hitters and fast curve ball pitchers.  Basically, I don't want my new team mates to think I'm a bad writer... :)  So no apology on your part is necessary!!

Thank you very much for your comment...although it makes me feel slightly nervous.  Hopefully my apprehension will be unfounded.
