New Review

I have a new review to show off. Allow me to introduce you to Loretta Craig.



I met Loretta at a Writers Workshop in Chesterfield VA. I chatted with her during lunch that day and later signed a copy of The Troubleshooter for her. She wrote to me a couple of days later to tell me she was reading my novel and enjoying it very much. When she wrote again she was even more complimentary about my novel,

particularly praising its positive message.



For all those reasons, I'm… Continue

Not Educational, but...

The trailer for Blood and Bone turned up on a web site for African American Scholarships. Maybe someone will use my novel for a fund raising event.

I'm international!

I found out that you can order copies of The Troubleshooter in India. I had to look up what Rs 1143 is in American money. Here’s where my Indian fans can get my books. Really!

New Writers Journal

A blog post on The Stiletto Gang highlighted the new journal called "The Writer's Journey." This new manual for authors is a collection of writers' essays on the craft and business of writing fiction. It's also obviously a journal with pages left for authors to write about their own journey. Thirteen writers contributed to this manual, including yours truly. Aspiring authors can reply to this e-mail to learn how to… Continue

Author Interview

I was interviewed by mystery author Jean Henry Mead on her web site, Mysterious People. She is an excellent interviewer who prompted me to reveal some new sides of my work.

First Review

The Crime Critics web site posted a very nice review of Russian Roulette, the very first advance review published. Crime Critics is one of the best mystery review sites on the net, and I'm flattered that they plugged my new book so soon.

Opportunity Knocks

There were days when I thought I’d never get another novel written. But it is.



There were times I didn’t think I could get a book published. But they are.



I once wondered if it was even possible to get my books onto bookstore shelves with all those other writers. When I walk into a store and see them there I’m still a little amazed.



I never thought a bookstore would be willing to host a book release event for one of my little mystery novels. And yet, on June… Continue

Meet Me in Washington DC tomorrow

Since my last posting here I had my last book signing at the Borders Express in St Charles Town Center before the big book release party for Russian Roulette. Store Manager Becky has done a great job preparing for that event and I talked to people that night who were looking forward to it.



I also signed a few books at the Borders Express in Dulles Town Center Mall. That was supposed to be my final book signing before the new book comes out June 13th. But the best laid… Continue

Who You gonna Call? Ghost Writers??

For the next couple of weeks, we'll try to respond to some of the most frequently asked questions, on the theory that if one new author asked, a dozen more want to know the same thing.



Here's a question that comes up:



"What do you think about ghost writing? I'm in need of a writer to tell my story because I really do not have the time to write it and really don't know how to get started."



This is really two different questions, depending on whether you are… Continue

More Blogging for Fellow Authors

My main blog is mostly for other writers. For the next couple of weeks, I'll try to respond to some of the most frequently asked questions, on the theory that if one new author asked, a dozen more want to know the same thing. Today I address a question I hear often:



"I am attending a conference and I am meeting with three agents at the conference. Do you have any advice?"



Of course, I do.



I also have an essay on… Continue

Elsewhere on the Internet

On the internet, you CAN be in 2 places at once. Today I’m featured on “Mysterious People,” the blog on which mystery author Jean Henry Mead interviews mystery/suspense/thriller/crime authors. Please stop by and see what I had to say.





I also have an article on Acme Author Link, a blog I share with several talented crime writers.… Continue
