My "Hobbit" Birthday Party Is Officially Started...

The party has begun, we've got presents, cake, candle, plates and above all else a gift for you.  Namely a FREE Kindle copy of our latest book.... Just click on this link to grab your copy: And don't forget to grab a slice of cake to enjoy while you're at it.  Remember, cake and reading go hand in hand, as does sharing this link with everyone you know.  The party comes to an end at midnight on April 3rd to spread the word and thanks for coming.


For those of you not familiar with a Hobbit Birthday Party it goes like this... ​ ​ My birthday is coming up on March 30th, but instead of asking for presents I'm giving one away to anyone who wants it. The present in this case is a FREE Kindle copy of "The Vampyre Blogs - Coming Home"! The catch... none. I simply want to get the newest installment of the Para-Earth Series into the hands of as many readers as possible, because word-of-mouth is THE best promotion tool out there. So stay tuned and start spreading the word. It all begins on March 30th and will last until midnight April 3rd. That's a whole five days to grab a copy and meet the newest vampyre in town. What is he like? For starts, he does NOT sparkle. He's much more your traditional style of vampyre: drinks blood, sleeps in dirt, shape-shifts (animals, mist, etc.). Best of all but he's a hundred and fifty years of fun with life experience both here and in other versions of Ea

Beware of "Stealth Writer's Block"

Well, we're mostly settled into our new place, so the dust is slowly settling from all of that. Well mostly settled.  Still unpacking and organizing where we want things to go and how, but that's just normal  after a move.  But sometimes figuring out how to organize your story and where you want certain events or revelations to go can also be pretty tricky.  It can even lead to problems I'd never  thought about, like Writer's Block.  Or, as it was with me recently,  STEALTH WRITER'S  BLOCK! Now what I mean by that is a kind of Writer's Block you aren't even aware of.  To give you  an example, this is what happened to me.  I had finished a particular scene in my current novel  and had moved way beyond it with the rest of the story.   But for some odd reason, I kept  finding myself going back to that scene and wondering about it.  It would happen every so  often then I'd get back to where I actually left off writing.
