Obamacare, Lobbyists, Tea party, Politics & Other Crap

      Like most of my fellow Americans I’ve been railing at the government for its infighting over Obamacare, lobbyists etc. And like most I’ve been under the impression that if Congress only understood what they needed to do, they would rap their heads like those V8 commercials, say something like, “Oh, now I…See More

How To Get A Book Published

How To Get Your Book Published!    Back when my company, Ari Publishing first opened and we were seeking authors, we were amazed when we received a considerable number of sample chapters containing clever ideas, engaging characters and interesting plot twists. Unfortunately, we had to reject them all.You may ask, ‘If a book contains all those necessary ingredients why on Earth would you turn it down?”Several reasons.1)                They didn’t learn their craft.

Being Profound for Fun and Profit

See that profound saying to the left? We’ve all heard the first part BUT, I came up with the rest which, I believe makes the adage a great deal more profound.Now here’s the deal. Just how does one become known as the profound guy? Personally I go around saying profound sh*t all the time but when people speak of me (as…See More

The Economy of the US, Have you been Left Behind?

 Let me say upfront that I am not a conspiracy theorist, a political radical, or as we said in the old days, ‘A pinko, commie, bomb thrower’. But lately, the first line from the Rolling Stones song ‘Gimme Shelter’ has been rattling around in my head,‘Oh, the storm is threatenin,’ my very life today.’ And I’ve been wondering why.And I think I have figured it out.I believe the government is slowly preparing us for a possible second financial meltdown. Why? Because things aren’t adding up. We’ve…See More

Books You Must NEVER Read!

Before we get into the books you must NEVER read let’s look at some of the books you probably SHOULDN’T read.Our number 1 book you probably shouldn’t read is a story of struggle, of determination and of finally attaining one’s dream.As with most of these stories, our tale begins with a young man returning from war only to discover that his country has been destroyed and ravaged by its enemies. In the years that follow even more misery is heaped upon the people of his once proud land. Their…See More

Your Future Looks Bleak, Here’s Why!

I’m not looking to bum you out but you’ve must be following the news in some regard. It’s not anything one looks forward to anymore unless you’re one of the those ‘The End is Near’ types walking around in sack cloth and ashes.Just heard that the percentage of autistic children being born is far larger than originally believed.Companies are now demanding that their employees be at the correct weight for their height, or they get charged extra for their health care insurance.North Korea has…See More

How To Attract Readers to Your Blog

There are over 50 million active blogs out there and if your reading this it’s likely you have a blog of your own. Most blogs die out over time due to lack of reader interest, although it’s rare for a popular blog site to die out because of the many ways it can benefit its author.Many blogs feature causes, political, sexual. religious, human rights, animal rights etc. Some offer personal opinions (I’m wonderful, he’s a douche and here’s why) then there are How-to’s—How to lose weight, How to…See More

Fight For Your Dreams Part 1

Why fight? Because you are your only friend. More importantly, you’re the only one you can trust completely. Not your spouse, not your children, not your friends, not the government and certainly not the company you work for.Just you.The only problem is, you might be unintentionally blocking yourself from having the life you want. I discovered that’s exactly what I was doing and that’s a hard lesson to learn.You see. I was born at the end of the ‘Leave it to Beaver’ era when fathers left for…See More

Indie Writers-Are Your Book Sales Dying?

Why is that? You wonder.You spent every free moment working on it; often well into the wee hours of the morning, honing it, presenting it to your writers group for critique, paying a professional editor to make sure it’s the best damn book it can be.And IT IS!So why are sales so low? You would think that by now the many positives reviews received on Amazon would have generated word of mouth, a buzz, an interest…And let’s face it, you’ve read many indie books and the overwhelming majority are…See More

Are You Accidently Making Enemies?

 Well, I know that I am.But it is to be expected. When you’re dashing, witty, urbane, suave, and sophisticated like me, you’re bound to chalk up a few jealous and vengeful adversaries along the way. And sometimes that’s a good thing. If you’re a person who has a lot of free time on his hands, having a few psychotic opponents secretly plotting against you can add some excitement to your life.Which reminds me of the time I was shot at.Funny story.I was the financial officer for a popular camping…See More

What They SHOULD Teach in School

One of the lines from Paul Simon’s hit song Kodachrome is “When I look back on all the crap I learned in high school, it’s a wonder I can think at all.So true.Having received my grammar school education at a Catholic school I can safely say I was well prepared for high school, primarily because they beat the living hell out of you until you knew by heart whatever they taught. Had I known there were high schools that catered to the arts, I would have applied since I was already a fairly good…See More

Why Your Books Aren't Selling

If you’re a writer who’s self published and can’t get more than a small group of people to read your novels, it’s probably driving you crazy, right?You’re doing all the social media things. You’re on Facebook and Twitter and Linked-in. You’ve gone the KDP route with at least one of your books with Amazon Kindle. (Results: 2000 downloads, no sales, 8 reviews, and 2 of them are from people whose reviews say something like: I started to read it and it seemed pretty good but then I kinda got side…See More

Yo! The Master's Here

An old saying goes, ‘When the Student is ready the Master will appear.’ I know this to be true because I’ve had several masters appear over the years and I told them all to ‘Get Lost.’Now, why did I do this? Well, the answer is I didn’t recognize them as masters at the time. Plus I was young, stupid and an egomaniac. Really didn’t believe that anyone had anything to teach me that I couldn’t figure out for myself.I began drawing at a young age which really wasn’t all that remarkable as my mother…See More

Fantastic blog. Really enjoyed it. And  your books look intriguing too. I have added them to my to-read list. And I joined your site. I just have to read more funeral parlour stories. I invite you to check out my blog: http://todayinshenaya.blogspot.com It is similar, but different to yours. In my blog the characters from my book write the posts on themes from the trilogy. Look forward to hearing more from you.
