Grow a tree!

Posted: February 28, 2014 in Uncategorized

Very well said Jeff… I took a different route with my first book which would be similar to self publishing; however, I call it incorporated publishing because I was able to build a small publishing house of my own in the process… Don’t get me wrong I too had to deal with some if not all of the same issues as if I self published only difference is I retained all rights and with that all responsibilities as far as distribution storage cost returns and rejections… The catch 22 is that now 6 years later I have built my own fan base my own connections my own brand in the process of learning how to write a book that will sell commercially… It takes time to grow a tree so if I was you I would start by planting the seeds and watching them grow… I have a 6 year old tree that is rooted well and growing as much as Mother Nature allows… Keep writing and. No matter the approach or pitfalls write until your tree grows fruit…

My Struggle with Autism?

Posted: February 28, 2014 in Uncategorized

I am the father of an autistic son. He will be 9 on the 9th of March, and I have only seen him a few times. The fact that I am writing this means that I am facing my inner demons by talking about it… What advice do you have for a father who was disappointed and a coward in the face of my sons struggle? I think I blamed his mother the most because my son was born healthy. I was there!  He was full of life! Then after a year on this earth he was slipped on with pcp… Its not his fault and as hard as it is to be apart of his life, whether that means adjusting my life: he deserves a chance… Honestly I am scared! Help!

Any advice or similar stories that you can share with me would be a blessing, and please understand that I am open to any comments good or bad…

Creating a Buzz?

Posted: February 27, 2014 in Uncategorized

This industry has done a complete 360 since my first publication in 2008… There was no social media presence other the myspace and authors den, and they didn’t offer half the services available today… I was lucky, because today in order to create a buzz you have to annoy everyone in the industry via social media, and even then you will be blocked from forums more then you will get positive feedback… When I first published there was a sort of commitment we as writes had to each other to help move the literary bar, so that more readers are aware of the great reads and possible new voices that so many of us have that will never be heard do to negativity this new wave of writers have embraced…. The problem with creating a buzz today is that it’s no longer the readers that judge our merits: its you, me, the writer thats placing judgment on each other and holding each other back from a potential sell, business opportunity, or mentoring and help… We the writer must create the buzz! You must place a beacon high in the sky to direct traffic you’re writing…
