In the Mix

January 29th. 2017

Bit of a bumpy week for me with regard to promotion and marketing. I had a Bookbub promotion, which failed to achieve the results I had hoped for. I have just about covered the cost of my investment, but on the bright side I have been able to reach more than 1000 new readers across the world. I can see the results showing up in India, Canada and Australia, which is like a small, but growing market for me.

The other kind of bumpy promotion is…

Free Fiction—Lying to the Muse

Lying to the Muse

After making a spectacle of destroying his work, a disenchanted writer is visited by a hungry Muse, who agrees to help him fix his novel. But he has more on his mind than writing.

Podcast: Life in a Small French Village

In the 1970s and 1980s, French villages were still unique places; and villagers, not yet ironed-out by television's conforming pressure, were originals. These podcasts peek backward, into those days.

The Problem with Books

I’m lucky: five or six absolutely wonderful books with humor, exciting language, an original way of telling a story, have recently made their way onto my reader. But there have been others too, well-written, almost interesting. Almost interesting? Yes, a certain amount of research has gone into them, and I can’t complain about the writing. It’s just that, for me, there’s something missing. It took me a while to work out what — but now I know:…

Five Fingers

“Five Fingers,” she said.

“What?”

I could barely hear her over the noise. Someone had just

asked one of the bartenders to turn up the TV. Loud games and beery voices

Quote

Quote from the fourth book:

“We do not understand God’s way. Often when we pray it turns out to be completely different, as you have expected it to be. But God is there, no matter where we are, no matter how fare we travel in any one of billion directions, God is there. Even more astounding is that the God of heaven and earth revolves this universe around you! You are more valuable to Him than all the brilliance of His creation. You are the lost coin of great value, the reason for His…

Hopes and Aspirations

January 7th. 2017

So as the New Year rolls in and our resolutions disappear, what are we looking forward to for 2017? I know the kind of things I would like to happen, and excluding the usual hopes for peace in the world and the disappearance of poverty and hunger, I look to material hopes. By this I mean something measureable, something tangible; and although I can’t physically touch my book sales figures, I would certainly hope to see a huge jump over my last year’s…
