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…Continue

Well, I didn’t sell enough books to make my grappling hook throwing skills necessary, but it was for the best: Turns out my Batman suit doesn’t fit anymore. I promised that if I sold enough at the Saturday book signing I’d scale the Black Building, but over the years I’ve grown from Christian Bale Batman to Adam West Batman. It’s too bad, after all the work I did to find a Robin costume for Emily.
Still, we made some sales and had fun hanging with Dan Gagen at the Noble Art…Continue

I’m looking for new publicity methods, so this is what I came up with for my book signing a week from tomorrow:
If I sell 250 books at the signing, from 2-5 July 11th at the Noble Art Gallery, I will scale the three story Black Building in a Batman outfit and moonwalk across the roof.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “But Mark, you don’t know how to moonwalk”. Good point, and way to miss the big picture. But this is how I look at it: If I ever sell 250 copies…Continue
