TWO Cover Reaveals from Emlyn Chand’s Farsighted Series

Posted by on May 31, 2012 in Authors, Books, Indie Projects & Promotions, Novel Publicity | 3 comments

The sequel to Farsighted is out! Open Heart came out this last weekend and I was able to get the covers to book three and four after a short bit of begging… but wait, you haven’t heard of Farsighted? No problem!

Alex Kosmitoras’s life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead broke and insanely overprotective, and to complicate matters even more, he’s blind. Just when he thinks he’ll never have a shot at a normal life, an enticing new girl comes to their small Midwest town all the way from India.  Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Sophomore year might not be so bad after all.

New Release – Buzz Words by Doug Lucas

Buzz Words by Doug Lucas

Most of us think we understand how police investigations work. We’ve seen them depicted on television so often we believe it’s really only one or two hardnosed, lone wolf detectives who will shoot, punch or intimidate criminals as they investigate crimes and apply justice in their own way. The image fiction has imprinted on minds is one of fast paced, rough and tumble fearless officers who are always at odds with their bosses, politicians and the law. They also manage to solve every crime in the amount of time allotted for the shows time slot, normally in forty-five minutes or less after you remove the commercials.

Posted by on May 29, 2012 in Alaska Living, Photos, Wordless Wednesday | 9 comments

The dog’s name is Groovy Bruce, yes Groovy Bruce. He sits vigilant protecting his human’s kick ass 1957 Chevy Apache, which is one heck of an awesome truck!  His dad taught me how to make the perfect Bloody Mary, the trick is to stir in pepper and celery salt with a spoonful of olive and lime juice. One day I will post the recipe.

Teaser Tuesdays No. 10

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading (she also hosts some other great memes) . Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
– BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Gil was currently preoccupied with destroying the damaged bridge model, winning the heart of Vermont State Trooper Jennifer Kennisaw and finding out how theLakebridge had never suffered a single bit of recorded damage. The way things were going, he probably wasn’t going to move on to another obsession for quite some time.location 506 of the Kindle version

Simple CSS for Busy Bloggers – Part 2 – CSS for WordPress

Actual CSS for WordPress

What are you doing, Dave?

When I see something about a design that bothers me it catches in my brain like a fish hook. The people I work with frequently roll their eyes at my obsession with minutiae, the time it takes for me to be ultimately satisfied with something. The underlying issue is that I’m a helpless geek – if I see something in a web design that can be tweaked on, I know that it’s just a matter of discovering the errant code and fixing it. I’m like a kid with a loose tooth: I just can’t leave it alone.

“Self Analysis, Intent, and the Writer; or, my Fight with Vanya.” By Edward Eaton

I’ve written a novel. I think that’s exciting. To me, it’s every bit as exciting as the novel itself should be to those of you clever enough to read it. It’s called Rosi’s Castle.

The blurb I came up with is: “When Rosi Carol moved to New Richmond, she learned that it was haunted – by her!”

My wife’s friend Vanya was furious when I read her the blurb and then showed her the trailer on YouTube.

I don’t need to finish it now,” she decided.
