Hey y'all! Rosh Hashanah begins tonight and ends Tuesday night, so I will be vanishing until Wednesday. Wednesday is going to be a cool post on Bryna Butler's, "Wrong Side of the Storm." It's the second book in her Mothman Mysteries series. Let's just say I was surprised, and really loved the book. So, check … Continue reading The Vanishing Yo
This past week at our Writers' Guild meet-up I was asked how many books I've sold. I was a bit embarrassed by my answer, but then I went on to explain that I hadn't actually marketed my book. I never created an authour platform. In other words, I didn't plan this book to be a … Continue reading We All Have a Story to Tell
One of the stories coming up in my booklet is about a book my roommate (years ago) brought into our trailer. From the moment she got her hands on the book, she began to change - and not for the better. Since writing up the story, I've been looking everywhere for what the general consensus … Continue reading Can Objects Be Haunted?
This week, I started a booklet with a couple wild true paranormal stories, along with a couple articles that go with each story. Oddly, today I saw this video that Grant promoted on Instagram. It kinda goes along with my booklet, so I thought I'd share it with y'all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJS3JARznA8

Shortly after my Kindle book was published this week, I sat down in the house where all the events took place and recorded myself reading the first few chapters of my book. The first reading is the Introduction only, but after that - the videos include a walk-through of the house where the story recorded … Continue reading Author Reading: Introduction
Back in September, I was at the annual Mothman Festival in Point Pleasant, WV. While enjoying the afternoon lectures on UFOs, the Mothman and the paranormal, I got a great idea for a book! I could write about growing up on a haunted farm! The paranormal is something I know about. I’m not an investigator, … Continue reading The Advantage of Blogging a Book
Exciting week! Yesterday, my "UFOs and Paranormal Activity on the Old Titus Dairy Farm" went live on Amazon! As a result, I had to delete most of the free version of the book here on my blog. But! You can pick up the book for a wee $2.99 for Kindle! This afternoon, I'll be recording … Continue reading UFO and Paranormal Book is Live!
Yesterday, I was fighting like crazy to meet my deadline for getting my book up on Amazon by midnight. I wanted to be able to say I published my first book in 2018. But, Murphy's Law was in command. By 3:15 P.M., my book was ready to go. The upload to Kindle Direct Publishing bounced, … Continue reading The Race Against the Clock
Publishing my first Kindle book has been an amazing, and frustrating challenge. I discovered that using Google docs was a huge mistake, as well as using a Chromebook for anything. What I find that makes writing easier is Scrivener or yWriter6. Unfortunately, Chromebook isn't compatible with any of the above - or anything else. So, … Continue reading When Things Go Wrong
