    I just published my first novel in paperback from FastPencil, for $9.99, The Girl in the Bird. It's a science fiction/romance set mostly in the Society for Creative Anachronism. It will come out in April on Amazon for only $2.99. If anybody is interested and you actually buy a copy, especially the Amazon one when it comes out, I'd really appreciate it if you could review it after you've read it.

    One of the more difficult tasks for me as a new writer, besides crafting a query letter, or synopsis (which I irreverently call suck-nopsis), was to create an author bio. At last year's GLVWG, keynote speaker and social media maven, Kristen Lamb, gave me some pointers.

    While searching through the attic trunk of incomplete story starts, an old tale written few years back read quite different to me.

    My fantasy novella, Worthy of Prometheus, is now available in paperback.  This was a long time in coming because the eBook edition has been out for over a year.  Because it is so short (100 pages) it retails on Amazon and B&N for $6.00 as a paperback.  As an eBook it is available for $.99 cents through the same retailers.  (It's also available as an audiobook.)

    It’s been an interesting year for SETI and enthusiasts of the famous Wow Signal, which to this day, remains an unresolved enigma. Updated technology detecting similar RFBs (rapidly fired bursts) in recent months, along with the Kepler Telescopic discovery of earth-like exoplanets, has rekindled an interest of our place in the universe.

    I wrote two of the three profiles in this article in the August issue of Lehigh Valley Style magazine. I also have a monthly book column and a two-page travel feature that are in the printed magazine.

    Thanks in advance for reading!

    Two things I learned about posting articles — good content, and killer images.  Something about that picture tells a story, has me spending almost as much time searching for the right image as I do writing the article itself. No shortage of great material on the internet’s cyclopean browser engine, finding good blog photos or illustrations can be a blessing of convenience or a pitfall of copyright infringement.

    One of the wonderful things about self-publishing is having complete control over the end product, especially when it comes time to alter your cover to reflect the editorial reviews you may have received during the first few years.  (Of course, if you traditionally publish that might be months rather than years.)

    I just completed the cover revision for It All Started with a Bicycle, placing a short blurb on the front, and three longer ones on the back.  Looking at the book now, it really does look like any other book out there.  This is an exciting moment for me!
