Book Blurb

Legend isn’t about people. It’s about pursuing a dream or higher ideal. About believing in something impossible and transforming the belief into reality through faith and hard work. The future is a legend written and unwritten.”

Jo Mason believes that creativity, spontaneity, and faith exist as definable words, but not actionable items. Negative consequences always follow the rare positive outcomes. It seems her destiny is surviving a chaotic world she can’t control. Hearing her own voice where she shouldn’t have leaves her wondering about her place in time.

Jeff has always been a part of her life, offering encouragements, wise words when she needed them, and many other things she can never completely thank him for. She knows he replaced her cousin who died saving his life. When she questions why he didn’t get to stay with his family, Jeff replies that without fixing the timeline everything she knows would be different.

When Jeff’s twin brother Randy falls into her lap, both literally and figuratively, Jo hopes he can give her a better answer. There is only one slight problem… He doesn’t remember anything about himself or his life and what he does, doesn’t help.

Together, the three of them learn that life isn’t about who or what you know, but who and what you care for.

500 words in


wpid-wp-1426675681462.jpgSo I am past the halfway point. I must say that I thought I would never get here and for the most part I wonder why it took so long. Yes I can understand setting up a story should take some time. But as I read the first part of this book I found that there was very little that I like.
I am reminded of what my friend told me when he was reading the first book in my fantasy series. I do not mention more about them as I am waiting to get my rights back from a publisher who aparantly is not doing much with them. That being said. Why did it take so long for the story to be started.

I finally am starting to get an interest in the story as I feel that everything is clear and understood even more than I thought before. Yes I saw a lot of it coming and it could just be the joy of , about fucking time that he got to the point of it all. And his writing leaves a lot to be desired, it surely is not the tale of the Lance. And it is not something that can be told in a sitting. But I give pause to wonder if he did not plan from the beginning to write an epic, a Ulysses in his own right.

Could this book be that? Well I wonder now. I have come to the feeling that I will want to read the whole series now. But I am on the line. If after I finish this book I start book two and he reverts back to taking 500 words to get the story going then I will simply put it down and say the hell with him. Because the story is started the tale is set he should not need another 500 words to retell or reset the story in the books to come. Unless he is just naturally long winded. We shall see.

Book Marketing


I have read a couple of times and have heard people that classic line from Heath Ledger’s Joker and it is older than that but just to make the point. “If you are good at something, don’t do it for free.” And while this is all well and good and we all want to make money for what we do. I as an author would love for you all to buy my book. But I am not linking it here for a specific reason. And why I will not link it to when I give advice as well.

This is a new thought for me and well my older advice posts may have the links to my books but that was before I came to this decision. Marketing advice for authors should not be a pay for advice thing. You ever wonder why there are so many. and I mean many book marketers who offer free advice and advice blogs only to try and sell you on their book.

Sell 1000, a MILLION, ebooks and or books, just buy my book and I will teach you how. I see these people as good as the late night shopping people who want you to buy the easy to make money turn your trash into treasures tools. They are for lack of a better word snake oil salesmen, no don’t get me wrong, not all of them. But enough of them, a recent search that I did while thinking about this post was book marketing and there are over 600k books on the subject.

There are enough that you would think that the best course of action would be to write a marketing book and sell it. And there are books on writing a marketing ebook and selling it. That is just sick and in my opinion wrong. So I will put everything that I learn about marketing and stuff as I go for free here or on my newsletter.

Now that being said, I do not have anything against someone who actually wants to work with you and help to promote your work. That is actual money for services. This is a post aimed at those that claim to help you only to turn around and say sure I will help you, here buy my how to book. That is not help. Stop trying to sell it as help.

Hmm


I tried to watch the show and it turned me off to this series. But my friend says I should try reading the books because they’re good so I will try to let me borrow one. That makes 5 books I’m reading at once but I will try to finish this one in a week.

To follow or …


There is many reasons why I would follow someone, just as there are many reasons why I would not. But the key point in blogging comes down to sharing posts, sharing ideas, sharing communication and in a way we are all selling something. We all want that little bit of each others time. Well I will take up your time and let you take up mine, and along the way if I am a dick and asshole a pain in the but to you then so be it. But most of the time I try to carry myself in a civil manner.

But that does not mean you can not express your mind and that does not mean that I can not express mine. So let’s talk, give me your two cents and let me give you mine.

Here is a question, What is raw unbridled love?

My precious


Love my novel and the new addition to my collection my windows surface.
