Createspace and KDP to merge

  Well . . . Frak. Createspace is getting eaten by KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing).   Technically this shouldn’t be a big deal, and hopefully everything goes smoothly. In the mean time, you can do a few things to make sure the process doesn’t turn into a Frat house on a 5-day bender:   Create […]

Undertow This Summer

    Sometimes I call UNDERTOW the Little Blue Book That Could because it keeps landing on lists years after it launched (not that I’m complaining). Of course, then my friends remind me that the sucker weighs close to a pound and is nearly 100,000 words long, so “little” ain’t so little. Pfft – details. […]

Titcomb’s Bookshop the Brave

      Back in 2013, before Undertow officially launched, I wandered into Titcomb’s Bookshop in Sandwich Massachusetts and happened to come face-to-face with owner Vicky Titcomb.

Hall High School’s Epic Student Storytellers

Dear World: This past week I was able to crash the party at Hall High School in West Hartford Connecticut for two days straight.

#IGAuthorLifeJan – Day 19 Favorite Review This was tough for me to choose, but I always loved the review I got from Jackie at She Reads She Blogs. While we authors can get our butts kicked from time to time with reviews, the really great ones make up for the bad ones ten times over […]

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 13 – Friday the 13th

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 13 – Friday the 13th Today is Friday the 13th of January and I thought that I should post a book I loved and found to be unexpectedly creepy when I read it: These Broken Stars by Spooner and Kaufman. Holy FRAK, I got totally spooked by this one. Anyway, my review of […]

Writing the Edge

If you were to ask ten authors how they came up with their first book, they’d tell you it was a story that stuck with them. One that played over and over in their mind, desperate to be told. The same applies to me, especially with Undertow (though I’ll admit that Undertow evolved into this […]
