A Friday Like No Other

Just a quick posting before bed tonight.

I actually made a hand full of sales of Where are our Children: Complete and Uncut over in the UK on Amazon. Thanks 2 those folks who took the leap of faith and dove into that story that comes from the depths of my heart and soul. I hope you enjoyed it.

Empire's fall has made a much more modest start on Smashwords but that was not totally unexpected. My sports articles seem to do best on ITunes and on Google.

Anyway, I'm finalizing how I want my future fiction entry's to look. My goal is for every release to mirror the others. I'm working on it.

Empire's Fall: The Last Days of the NFL as we know it

My first Sports Study book in a looooooooong while has been released on Smashwords. I had a ball putting it together and I hope you have as much fun reading it.

It will be available on other E Book outlets throughout the weekend.

Alpha Dog

I didn't have a whole lot to say so I didn't post yesterday.

I do have news today however.

The first draft of Empire's Fall: The Last Days of the NFL as we know it is done. I had a blast writing it. Just like the other two Sports Study articles and the ones coming I had a ball with it. Fiction is where my passion is but I love putting my opinion out there for you guys to read.

I have some real life things to do tomorrow but with a mini edit and format it should be on Smashwords tomorrow night and on ITunes (where my articles draw the most traffic) and other outlets in time for the weekend.

By the way, it was the first time that I really used my Alpha 3000 that I ordered off the internet about a year ago. What is an Alpha 3000 u ask? It is like an old school word processor in the simple design of a keyboard. This thing is to be used for writing and nothing else. It has just enough of a screen to see what you are writing, but not enough for you to constantly be editing. No word count. Guys, I typed over 4000 words in and around 4 hours. I love this thing. I give it my highest recommendation for you writers out there who fall into the common traps of using your laptop: You are distracted by surfing the net or playing games on your computer. You are distracted by your own inner voice that traps you into editing, editing, editing instead of creative voice taking control of the process.

I cannot wait to use this thing when I return to my fiction after I publish these three or four non fiction articles.

Anyway, I'll return here and announce when my latest work is available on line like I always do.

Until then...

The Closer

I'm closing in on starting my latest article. I could possible have it uploaded by this time next week.

Life is but a wonderful race

And i won one of the sprints.

Thanks 2 everyone who downloaded a copy of Where are our Children on Amazon during the free peorid. It is the 4th title ive featured through kdp and was by far the most sucessful. 

Its not the last time, of course, but i think i will limit future runs 2 single days though.

I still pinch myself knowing that i wrote a nearly 900 page novel. 

Anyway, back 2 writing in a day or so and  
Plotting n planning everyday.

moving up and moving on

my three goals whenever I have an idea for a story or a article.

1. To be a storyteller. For me this means spinning a tale that makes you laugh, cry, bite your knuckles in anger or draw out some type of emotional response. I am NOT interested in being a grammar king or being literary correct. I try to copyedit the best I can, but I do every step of the publishing myself and I DO miss things. This is not an excuse it is my reality.

2. To Produce Numbers. For me this means the more stuff I have out there, the even more my other works get read.

3. To Produce Numbers(part 2). For me nothing is more fun than seeing my name and my works being downloaded on (place your favorite ebook site here). I hit a goal for Children on Amazon that I am very proud of. Would I like to be the #1  downloaded book overall on Amazon? I would. Would I like to be the #1 selling book on Amazon? Of course I would.

Gift Wrapped

It was a wonderful day today. I enjoyed an unscheduled day off and saw a lot of my work into this writing thing come to fruition over the past 36 hours. If any of you are peeking in on my blog for the first time because of your introduction through Amazon--welcome. Thanks for your downloads. Today is already the largest download day for a single title since I've been doing this. I hope that the tale that I spun is worth your time. It is FAR from perfect but it meant a hell of a lot to me. I hope that rings through as you read about Angel, Serena, Thomas' and all the others adventures (and misadventures) in the book.

Tomorrow is a return to work and somewhat normal writing routine. I'll be doing some scattered research on my next Sports Study article.

My hope is to be writing it out by the middle of the week.

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your weekend guys and I'll check in again tomorrow.
