Investigating the Psychological Autopsy

skull-brain

One of the most interesting aspects of studying criminal behavior and criminology is finding out why and how criminals commit a specific crime.  It’s really the complicated and daunting task of finding out what makes an individual tick and hopefully learning more about their criminal pattern of behavior in the process. …

Last chance to win a copy of "Never Meant to Be"

You have until Monday to enter the giveaway for my latest novel, "Never Meant to Be." It tells the story of Cynthia Kenyon, a young woman from 21st Century America, who has an accident with H.G. Wells' time machine and winds up in London, 1882. It is not long before she becomes enmeshed in the lives of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, and where she has to face a number of choices, not the least of which is whether what she does changes history, and how her actions affect those she…

Well— This Video Cracked ME Up...

In this brief "video trailer"for our new, author-centric radio show... uh... I did include my name, as well as the show name, a ...uh... couple of times in the video for "The Book, With Earl Merkel."



Most egregiously, in the closing credits.



In my defense, it is for "branding."



Which I no doubt richly deserve, with a very hot iron.

Death in The Age of Gold

Hmm...I may just have hit the nuclear self destruct button.  I have asked amazon to publish my second historical novel, title above.  Sadly, it is not a "whodunnit" but an action thriller "whodidit".  I do hope that the solitary reader of my last effort is not disappointed by this murderous romp through New Kingdom Egypt...…

Fire Up The Email

Email-Inbox Let me start at the beginning which is as good of a place to start as any. Last year, around October or November I was in the midst of promotion for my third book, Alpha, as well as continuing promotion on the first two books. Part of my strategy was to contact different companies and businesses related to fitness and martial arts. So I came to look online for various martial arts related magazines.…

"In a Shard of the Bedroom Mirror"

The VEILS, HALOS, AND SHACKLES anthology has accepted my "In a Shard of the Bedroom Mirror" for publication. It's a poem about the aftermath of domestic violence, likely the most common crime in this country and the world. Most of you don't think of me as a poet, but sometimes poetry can say what you need to say best. In the case of "In a Shard..." my hope was to capture that moment, immediately after the crime, when insane excuses start flying around, revealing dysfunction on both sides of the… Continue

THE POLITICS OF PUBLISHING

Ever since Amazon legitimized self-publishing, small publishing houses and Big Publishing have been reeling from the impact. Big Publishing's answer was to first discredit authors who took control of their careers, then sought to keep prices high on e-books so agents and publishers could continue to reap profits.

Small publishing continued as if nothing really changed. Indie houses have been ignored by book chains and small press authors…
