If It Starts Here, Where Does It End?


Hey Everyone, This won't be a long post. I just wanted to share something I've been thinking about with you and ask that maybe you take a little time to think about it, too. Recently, I dreamt that I went to see a movie in a theater. But instead of the usual ads they play at the beginning, there was an endless reel of old Nazi propaganda films. I woke up shaking, but the really frightening part is that now that I'm awake I find myself wondering when that will happen in reality. Think about it. Have you seen the campaign ads Republicans are running on TV? I have. They talk about rounding people up and locking them up without trials. The videos of Trump rallies remind me of nothing so much as ...

ABOUT THE BOOK 

 Someone’s watching . . . Zoe McCabe is a beautiful young actress on the verge of stardom who has been basking in the standing ovations and rave reviews she’s been getting from critics and fans alike for her portrayal of Desdemona in an off-Broadway production of Othello. As she takes her final bows, Zoe has no idea that, seated in the audience, a man has been studying her night after night, performance after performance. A man whose carefully crafted plans are for the young actress to take a starring role in a far deadlier production he has created just for her. Portland, Maine detectives Mike McCabe and Maggie Savage are settling into the new rhythm of their relationship w...

Want better workplace results?

(BPT) - From standing desks and team-building events to onsite services and remote work opportunities, companies have adapted over the years to adopt new solutions that will grow their company, improve employee retention and increase productivity.   However, while all of these initiatives have their benefits, John Scott, senior workplace design strategy expert for Haworth, points out many companies are missing one key solution - an opportunity that exists all around them. The chance to enjoy the fresh air and take their work outside.   "With so many design trends to focus on, the one that almost always gets overlooked is utilizing the outdoors to work and collaborate," Scott says, adding tha...

Are You Thinking Globally?


Attract the Right Job or Clientele: Travel changed my perspective from thinking locally to thinking globally. And the moment I saw the announcement of social media, I was all in. The technology brings global thinking to our desktop. Courage is the first step to leadership My Story Two email this week brought to mind all the beautiful experiences travel and social media provide. Travel primed me for business first. As I traveled through several continents, I became at ease communicating with people of varying cultures and perspectives. Entering the business world, I most enjoyed meeting people from other countries. We would first share our travel experiences, and I would learn of their herita...

Hope & Glory – Winston Churchill’s (minimal) contribution

ruritania_zenda_1938_by_mbhdesign-d8zcnf3
How does it feel to have your grandmother read your book, and tell you… It clearly shows your lack of experience with women … Awkward, uh? And it’s even worse, I guess, when your grandmother is Frances, Duchess of Marlborough, and you are a young army officer who wrote the book on your way to India, and your name is Winston S. Churchill. One of the many bits and pieces that went into Hope & Glory is the literary genre (or sub-genre) of Ruritanian Romance, those stories of passion and derring-do set in unlikely small European nations, like Anthony Hope’s Ruritania or George Barr McCutcheon’s Graustark. And right now I am working on a small sourcebook for Hope & Glory, set in one of these micr...

Reviews new new dark SF Audiobook

Just a note to say reviews are starting to come in and are good on one of my new audiobooks, In Memory, Yet Crystal Clear. It is a dark sci fi story and my first ever published back in 1990 in a horror quarterly review. I've recently updated it for release as an audiobook and I am using a voice actor (Tom Remick) for narration.  It is a story seemingly familiar today how one man changes the course of America and not necessarily in a good way, or...well, you'd just have to listen to it, or read the ebook version. Cheers!  Audible review

Big News About the Reader Rave Luncheon

Hi, everyone.  I’m super-excited to report that urban fantasy author Holly Barbo will be joining me at the Reader Rave Luncheon on October 6 at the Burbank Marriott.  Holly and I are looking forward to meeting you, enjoying a meal, and giving you goodies.

ZYNDI ZUE


dontravis.com blog post #302 Once again, funny. “Larry and Laura” got a ton of page views… very few comments. Go figure. Here’s some more nonsense for this week. ***** ZYNDI ZUE           Prissy Pullman eyed her best friend across the malt shop’s checkered tablecloth, disbelief clouding her eyes. “You can’t do this!”           “Already did,” said Cynthia Sue Breedwell, teasing her recently dyed red, orange, and blue hair through long fingers tipped with ebony nails. “Also got a nose piercing, and put three earbobs in each lobe yesterday. The tats will come later. By the way, call me Zyndi Zue from now on.”           Prissy eyed her friend’s hair critically. “Red and orange?”           “And B...

Is it worth it to offer your book for free?


This post is the fifty-second post in a series about writing a novel. You can check out the list of past topics at the end of this post. You have published your book and want readers and reviews. Many authors choose to offer their book for free. (It is one way to get reviews.) But should you offer your novel that you worked so hard to produce for nothing? Well, that depends… I have heard many authors claim that it is a bad idea to offer our books for free. We are diminishing what we do, they say. We worked hard on our novel so shouldn’t we expect to get paid? Are we setting a precedent for readers who will now expect free books all the time? Are free books deterring them from actually buying...

INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORES from Owen Thomas Fiction - Soldotna, AK Edition: River City Books


INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORES: SOLDOTNA, AK How 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 SOLDOTNA, ALASKA then here is a good place to start… RIVER CITY BOOKS IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “A small, fully stocked bookstore with easy access from Sterling Highway at the Y in...

DICTIONARY OF OBSCURE SORROWS by John Koening (presented by Owen Thomas Fiction)


THE DICTIONARY OF OBSCURE SORROWS John Koening has been working for nearly a decade to put together a book of invented words to describe human emotions desperate for a name. If you are interested in browsing on your own, you can find Koening’s website for “The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows” here: http://www.dictionaryofobscuresorrows.com . In the meantime, I will be using this space to feature some of my favorites. Like this one… LIBEROSIS n. the desire to care less about things—to loosen your grip on your life, to stop glancing behind you every few steps, afraid that someone will snatch it from you before you reach the end zone—rather to hold your life loosely and playfully, like a volleyba...
