Getting Busy

Things are getting busy around here. I just sent off the contract for my second book, Paranormal City. I'll now have to wait to see what their next steps will be. In the meantime, I received the proofs for my first book, Shuttlers yesterday. So, I'm going to be knee-deep in checking everything out there. However, I won't have to worry about the cover art; they told me that the version I created for myself is fine, and they'll be using it.Read more

A Few More Publishers

Some time ago, I self-published my self-help book "Unleash Your Dreams: Going Beyond Goal Setting" on Smashwords. Unfortunately, the automated analysis program called "The Meatgrinder" had problems with my formatting, but did not tell me exactly was wrong, nor how to correct it.
