t doesn’t matter if you are blogging a novel, a memoir or a nonfiction book, if you want to convince your readers to think or act a certain way, you must hit them in the gut. (Not literally, of course.) If you can make them feel something, you can probably inspire them to behave in the way you desire.

My first thriller, "Courier," was published by Exhibit A Books which promptly went out of business. It's still for sale, at least for a while.
For more Information and a chance to buy this lightning-fast motorcycle race of a book, click on the Author Page link just above.
Now, I just have to find another publisher and get them to publish "Courier," "Warrior"-the sequel, and "Day of the Dragonking: Book One of the Last American Wizard." (a paranormal thriller/comedy.}
Man, this publishing nonsense is tough!
Stick around, I'll try to keep you updated on my progress.
(*To be honest, I'm still fairly uncouth.)

Longtime Newsman Attempts Escape
40 years of television journalism, online startups/failures, content creation, and technical chicanery and now trying to scam the literary world. First novel (A thriller about Watergate) to be published on real paper in May 2014. Other novels, screenplays, and ghostwritings are pouring out as fast as I can type. Hoping to keep the family in Senior Kibble for as long as possible.
