So I Don't Forget My Own Books

I’m posting this mostly for my benefit, so you can ignore it or, preferably, embrace it and send it to your friends all over the world. I’ve had a few (rather surreal) moments this summer when I struggled to remember all the works I’ve had published. Not that there are that many, but I’m putting them up as a list here so I can refer to it in a hurry, and/or refer it to a potential reader. This has made me realize my next book after Images of America: Albion and Noble County will be the tenth…See More

Just a Cog In the Blog

Joleene Naylor gave me this Blogger's Recognition Award, which is for recognition of bloggers, which I am one. This came as something of a surprise to me, as I never thought of myself as a blogger even though my blog is hosted by Blogger. Joleene’s a great writer and a great person, even though there’s a spider on the…See More

I'll Alert the Media

I normally send out a press announcement ahead of each book release. This one might not show up in newspapers, because Arcadia Publishing has a publicist, and I haven’t heard back yet on whether it fits with what they’re doing.(I know, right? We have a publicist!) A husband and wife writing team have produced a book that will give Noble County area residents a photo-filled walk through local history.Images of America: Albion and Noble County will be released on August 24th by Arcadia…See More

Jumping In With Both 30.48 Centimeters

            I originally wrote this in early June, long before Donald Trump raised his hair into the fray, and then promptly forgot about it. If only I could forget about Trump’s hair.             You’d think America would support a Presidential candidate who chose to be honest and bold, as opposed to most candidates in living memory. Now the Democrats have a candidate who took a bold statement, who’s absolutely right about his bold statement, and who doesn’t stand a chance because of his bold…See More

Movie Review: Credibility Is Terminated

Well, he said he’d be back.Terminator Genisys brings back “Ahnald” Schwarzenegger as a Terminator, who is continually sent back in time to kill someone who will eventually defeat a machine revolution, or to defend that person from another Terminator who’s sent back to kill … it gets very confusing.Even more so in this movie, in which resistance leader John Conner sends his second in command Kyle Reese to 1984 to protect Sarah Conner, John’s future mom, in the past. It’s exactly what happened in…See More

Can I Ax You a Question?

I got to break things with an ax at a structure fire Wednesday afternoon. (A small outbuilding.) But then I broke the ax. Good thing they don’t take that out of a volunteer firefighter’s pay. They don’t … do they? …See More

It's Blog, Not Blarg

I’ve been away from the computer lately, for vacationy stuff. It was refreshing and usually fun, and we even managed to get out of the area for a week—not exactly a relaxing kind of a trip, as I’ll detail later. Sometimes fun is sitting on a beach with a good book; sometimes fun is clamboring into caves and hiking to waterfalls while researching a good book. Don’t worry, there’ll be photos. I’ve been neglecting my blog terribly, which isn’t a good thing for a working writer. Recently I read…See More

Seven Lines From My Work In Progress

I was tagged by Samantha Branham for the 7x7x7 challenge: seven lines from the 7th page of my work in project. I’m not tagging anyone, ‘cause I don’t do that, but if you’re a writer and it strikes your fancy give it a try! I suppose this serves as the official announcement of my next book project, in honor of Indiana’s bicentennial: A humorous look at Hoosier history. Don’t look at me like that, I promise you’ll like it. (You won’t be hearing much from me for the next couple of weeks, due to…See More

Our New Website Is History

As part of the book release for Images of America: Albion and Noble County, we’ve decided to include some extras—bonus materials, especially for people who like history and/or local people. I mean for local people, not for people who like local people. This is going to be a separate website from, although each has a link to the other. This is because the regular website can be a little challenging to update, and the…

A Celebratory Snooze

It’s a big day today, a day worthy of celebration. I decided that on this particular Monday, I’ll do whatever the heck I want.


I want sleep.


This says less about me than about the fact that I worked overtime this weekend, and events left me with about half my normal snooze time. I wish I could say I was one of those people who could go on for days without sleep. In truth, I’m jealous of those people—I could sure get a lot more done, getting by on three hours a…

Order Today and I Won't Bug You Tomorrow

The books are here! 50 copies of Images of America: Albion and Noble County came in the mail Saturday, in time for the official release date tomorrow.

I did some checking, and the pre-order price at Barnes and Noble and Amazon  look good through the end of the release day—so you should be able to get it at 46-47% off the list price until midnight Monday. If you want an autographed copy, I’ll be happy to add my John Hancock later.

After all, the deal is worth close to…

I hear you on pictures, believe me - which is why mine is a goofy one rather than an attempt at serious!  :)

Someone else just told me they had trouble with that too - mine worked pretty predictably, but I did it a while ago so am not sure I know how to help...  Sorry!

Welcome to Book Blogs!  I'm rather new myself - still figuring things out, but so far have been quite pleased with how much support/feedback/help are available...  If there's anything I can help with just let me know - I can't promise answers (well, I can technically promise answers, just not that they are correct/useful - teehee), but I've managed to pick up a trick or two that I'm happy to share!

And if you have a second, please stop by my blog - - I'm always happy to get comments or new followers!

Best of luck to you -
