Welcome to my world… abandon all hope ye who enter here

Does the world really need another self-indulgent, self-promoting blog?

Of course not. But I do. All writers need a “platform”. The goal is to minimize the neediness while actually helping people learn a bit about me and my work. So, here’s what this blog is and isn’t:

  • It’s personal. This is purely about me and my (mostly fiction) writing. If you’re interested in my business and communication work (and I hope you are) check out www.GreatWebMeetings.com and www.RemoteLeadershipInstitute.com.
  • It’s about writing. I have written all my adult life, whether it’s standup jokes, spec scripts, 7 non-fiction books, and now my first novel. I love talking writing and hanging with writers. Since I can’t sit down and share a frosty beverage with you all, this will have to do.
  • Historical fiction is my favorite, but from time to time we’ll go wherever the muse takes us.  As a blog, the focus will be on historical fiction like my novel “Pith Helmets in the Snow”. More importantly, I want to learn about other indie and small-press writers in the field. Every genre seems to have their own little worlds, except for historical fiction. Maybe this will help.

Why historical fiction? Here’s my motto:

Those who don’t remember the past are doomed to repeat it. Those who do, can’t do a darned thing about it but will see it coming and get to smugly say, told ya.”

Don’t let the weasels get you down folks.

  1. Congratulations on ALL your recent success. You are exceptionally talented and I hope this becomes q big turning point for your writing career.

  2. Thanks, EJ. One of the best things about getting serious about my fiction is the chance to meet (in real life or otherwise) other writers. It’s been incredibly energizing and exciting. Plus it’s cool to see so many writers (and you’re a great example I’m trying to live up to) supporting each other.
