INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORES from Owen Thomas Fiction: Washington, D.C. Edition -- Kramerbooks & Afterwards Cafe


INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORES: Washington, D.C. – Kramerbooks & Afterwords CaféHow long has it been since you supported your local independent bookstore or library? I don’t care what your answer is. However long it has been is much too long. We all need to get out there and show some love for those lonely foot soldiers in the fight against illiteracy, literary apathy, and the threat of complete assimilation by the American zero-attention-span-unless-it’s-a-video-zombie-culture that is taking an ever-greater hold of our society. If you live in or intend to visit Washington, D.C., here is a good place to start…WHERE TO VISIT: Kramerbooks & Afterwords Café1517 Connecticut Avenue, NWWashington,...

Someone in the Water


 AmazonSpring Lewis knew death. As a nurse in the ICU, she had experienced more than her fair share of it. The difference was, unlike most people, she was acutely aware not everyone who died stayed in the afterlife, including the eight kids calling to her from the river. Vince Roundtree had devoted his life to one thing, music. As the tuba professor at the University of Hedgeford, he spent his days shaping the lives of young people, and his nights walking along the river on a journey to find true peace. On a rainy spring evening, in a darkened Hedgeford Park, their paths intersected in an unexpected way. Their chance meeting set them on a path of forgiveness, understanding, acceptance, and l...

Why It Is Important To Be Creative.


I was recently set a challenge as part of my writers' group August blog chain. The topic put to us was a question - Why is it important to be creative? At first glance, the question appears fairly easy to answer doesn't it. However, I struggled to come up with an adequate answer and, for the longest time, I couldn't figure out why. It eventually struck me that I was trying to answer the question by looking outward - as though trying to impart reasons why anyone should be creative. But, that's the wrong way to tackle it. Creativity is a very personal thing and it can take so many different forms. The relationship one has with creativity is unique. It goes then, that any consideration of its i...

Your Votes and My Smiles


Don’t believe an author who tells you they don’t like their books. It’s a pure lie. If we didn’t like the books we wrote, we wouldn’t publish them and share them with you! That is the real truth.Since we already did that—wrote them, invest a bigger or smaller amount of time, money and enthusiasm to publish them and bring the final product in front of you to enjoy, love or hate it (heaven forbid the last one happens!)—we also hope and count on your support and kindness to help our books reach others and continue their life through your purchased copies, word-of-mouth recommendations, honest reviews or votes in various contests.As it was the case with my first novella A World Without Color, I ...

The Writer's LIfe: judging and revising and young authors

I spent some time last week judging 4-H writing projects. As usual, I marveled at how good the entries were ... many of them much better than I was at the same age. It's great to know there are still young writers and readers out there. It's also great to know my own childhood writing has disappeared.Then I dove back into revising Fire On Mist Creek, which I wrote last fall and edited in early winter. Revision isn't all that much fun to me, so I made myself a promise: Once I get this manuscript done ... I can start work on another story. The most fun parts for me are brainstorming the story, writing the first draft, and those little edits later on, when the story's mostly done and I can rela...

Dylan & the Croak Orleans Gang

Dylan & the Croak Orleans GangDylan is a frog who travels to Croak Orleans to fulfill his dreams. Dylan meets Travis, the armadillo, and other Louisiana animals that are known in the area.  I use my niece and nephews and own kids’ talents of music in my book.  This idea was formed after meeting my husband’s brother and his family.I write about meeting the animals, but also I write about the kind of instruments each animal uses. It is a neat story that parents can talk to about meeting strangers and the danger tot do what Dylan did.  This story could open many good conversations with parents and kids.to find this book click here Dylan & the Croak Orleans Gang 5.0 out of 5 stars Dylan ...

Re-Launch of MAMA'S MADNESS - A novel inspired by true events...


Re-Launch of “Mama’s Madness”“Mama’s Madness” – Re-Launch – June 21, 2018One more time! “Mama’s Madness” has been among my fourteen books my best seller, and I’ve changed the cover a few times. WHY AM DOING IT AGAIN?Call me crazy, but this time I also did some re-writing, making some changes here and there – nothing major but enough, I believe, to make it even better. The old edition had some sixty reviews, most of them 5-STARS and 4-STARS, so maybe I am a bit nutty to be making a change again. However, I’m committed to this change and I hope that my friends and followers will help me with this re-launch…I’m awaiting proof copy and will be shooting for a June 21, 2018 publication.The changes...

I tackle poetry ... and get slammed

SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK My wife is taking a poetry class this year, so I, being a writer, decided to take a crack at writing poetry myself. Why didn’t someone stop me? Thank goodness I’m better at prose. Thank goodness Emily is better at poetry, or she’d be scoring a big fat goose egg, which rhymes with … I don’t know, something. My understanding has always been that poetry is writing that’s short and structured and rhymes, while prose just rambles on, the way I do. However, it turns out that poetry doesn’t always rhyme, and some poems have gone on to book lengths. There are, in fact, many dozens of types of poetry, from Haiku to Jintishi. I thought Jintishi was a condition related to too much...
