Another Great Review - I am grateful and humbled! Thank you all so much!

"It's not often that books mix so well urban stories with horror and a little bit a fantasy - like this novel does. It is clearly a nowadays novel - one that comes with everything that New York has to give - intercultural marriages and friendships, apartments with a view on the city of lights main boulevards - with paranormal disappearances and out of this world creatures such as vampires. Mont's "out of this world" adventures after the mysterious disappearance of his wife in the…

Get Kracken and Release the Presses

What does a real, official writer’s press release look like? Well … I don’t know. But here’s the press release I sent out to the local media, minus my e-mail address and author photograph. Obviously it’s different from my less formal post from last week, but otherwise all I can tell you is that it’s probably too long for modern media outfits.

            Oh, if you have Facebook and want to let us know you’re coming, the event page is at…

Death & Disappearances Just received it's second 5 STAR Review!!! WOOT! WOOT!

To those of you out there who have penned a novel, you know what it is to try to make the characters believable and give the mystery a twist, a puzzle and flair to keep your readers interested. I tried to do this with Death & Disappearances. There's a good deal in the book that I don't come outright and explain - partially because I want the reader to come up with their own interpretation and partly because I don't know. When I write, it's like I'm in the room with the characters and…

Status Update - Where I stand on the book promotion front

Okay folks, here it is, the 27th day of October and how have I done so far with all the many things I have been doing with book marketing.

Piece of Cake PR - They drafted the press release and sent it out. Who did they send it out to? I have no idea. They never did tell me. They say in their ad that they send it to all these media outlets - but I don't feel the results were any good. So basically you pay for the writer to write a nice press release - and I also found the short…

A Texas Ranger’s Arms is a sweet romance. I enjoyed this story about a Texas Ranger and a young girl who is trying to keep the land that was meant to be hers. Both characters were wonderfully developed. I totally fell in love with the Texas Ranger who is recuperating at his parents’ home.”

Five thousand Follows and Counting

So here we are, climbing down the month. I've reached nearly a million viewers between tweets and retweets. But has this resulted in any sales? I have had - so far, about 13 books sold (ebooks) and as for the free trial, to date 30 people have downloaded the book and promised a review. I've had 2 reviews on the book.

I don't think that the PR piece with Piece of Cake PR did much good. Book Daily did a launch for my book featuring it and that's when the followers inreased and I…

Going out on a limb to market my book, Death & Disappearances (published in 2012)

I don't know what struck me. Maybe it was the royalty check I just received from Amazon for my book sales - mostly on the first book I published, "Seven Murders In Sussex." I don't know what caused it but suddenly I had this overwhelming urge to publicize my last published novel, "Death & Disappearances."

I started out with Piece of Cake PR. The team there wrote a press release for me and then their service distributes it to thousands of media outlets. I've had some lovely…

Bleeding Fire Engine Red

The editor of the newspapers I work for asked me for a fire service related article for our Fire Prevention Week insert last week, and this is what I came up with:



            It’s not easy to say how a first generation volunteer firefighter like me got into the business.

            For many of us, firefighting becomes such a part of our lives that we bleed fire engine red. Okay, bad example. But if your father was a volunteer, and maybe…
