"THE SHIP" Will Come In To Dock On May 23rd...
That's right gang. The second installment of the Para-Earth Series is coming to an e-reader near you very soon.
"THE SHIP" takes place during the month-long interlude mentioned in the Epilogue of "THE BRIDGE". If you haven't read that book, no worries. "THE SHIP" is a novel that stands on its own. Enough references are made to the previous story to bring you up to date without recapping the entire first book, while at the same time adding to the new story.
Within these pages you'll meet Cassandra Elliott, billionaire heiress to a hotel and shipping empire, and her new love interest Julie Cloudfoot a Seneca shamaness. The two have come to the shores of Santa Cruz to bring the ashes of Julie's uncle to his children who live out here. While paying their respects, Cassie and Julie are also trying to learn more about one another. Their romance is still in its fledgling stage and both are eager to see whether or not they can make it as a couple.
However, unknown to both, danger is closing in from two directions. One is a mysterious white-haired man who seems to appear and disappear at will. He has been stalking Cassandra for the past year and has definite plans for her psychic abilities. But before he can act a new threat arises from the sea. One with connections to both Cassie and Julie's ancestors. A ghostly vessel that marks Cassandra for its next target...
"THE SHIP" will be available for Kindle, Nook, Apple, Sony and other e-readers. It will also be available in PDF form for laptop and desktop computers, as well as in print in Trade Paperback form. So mark the date May 23rd, to get the second installment of the Para-Earth Series.

Well, my wife Helen and I have finally finished moving into our new place. I'll be posting some more videos from my Vlog about that shortly, but I wanted to focus on another subject today. Hobbies, talents, things people do for adventure, enjoyment and relaxation. Now in creating characters that seem real to the audience I've found that the more real and reachable the characters are (i. e. they're like people you know or might meet) they're the ones that the readers seem to really relate to and even come to love. Now one method I've used to make my characters seem more human and real is to give them traits that are familiar, and even somewhat odd but intriguing. I've given characters hobbies or activities I've tried. When they are finished with what I've written, some have even gone and done research of their own on the activity. Some have even taken it up and made it a part of their lives. But how did that happen? Simple, whether it's pla
Okay, yesterday was a big day for me. My novel "THE BRIDGE" is now available in two 'brick-and-mortar' bookstores. How did I make this happen? Are sales jumping through the roof? Is my name out there so much that fans are demanding it be available everywhere? Two words.... I WISH! No, the simple truth is when you're an Indie Author (someone who has published through Createspace or other means to make a printed copy of your book), you have to do a lot of things yourself. One of them is marketing and getting your book into stores. Now, if you've done a good job marketing and your sales on Amazon and Barnes and Noble websites are going really well, you might land up in bookstores. Some chains look to those sites to see what's the hottest sellers going and is it available in print form. They don't want to be left out of the loop and fall behind. But you have to have great sales for that to happen. But if you're just starting out and are
The last 7 days have kept me busy. I mean REALLY busy. And the sad thing about it all is that some of this could have been avoided....up to a point. Now I'm talking about re-editing my first novel AFTER it had already come out. Why would I do that? Because in spite of the combined efforts of myself and 2-3 other people checking the novel over for grammatical errors, a number of them got past all of us. From day one, I was determined to try and put out as good a product as I possibly could. And when I found out I'd failed, I felt obligated to go back and fix things. Now, I'm sure a number of you are wondering to yourselves, "Is he saying he never got it professionally edited?" The answer is, "I did not." Now, this is not because I was so arrogant in my own writing abilities, nor was it because I was being cheap and didn't want to put the money out. The truth is... my wife and I have applied for Food Stamps and have been getting aid from my
