What’s Happening

I’ve been planning my next book for Nanowrimo in 2007. It will be my third attempt. After writing the first two books about Baseball more or less I decided to take on another genre and do a science fiction book.  It will be sort of Star Wars meets Pirates of the Caribbean kind of thing. […]

Paper Glut

Remember when it was thought that computers would eliminate the need for paper. We were on the way to a paperless society. No need to have files of paper around, just go to the computer and get whatever information you needed. Who needs paper it’s on a disk. It hasn’t worked out that way. It […]

Passing Of A Legend

This morning I woke to the news that the author Kurt Vonnegut had died. He had always been one of my favorite authors when I was younger.

A Little Update

A few weeks ago, I sent a query to a literary agent about the book that I wrote last year, In The Company Of Legends.  About a day or two later I received an e-mail reply that they were interested in my proposal and to send them a couple of chapters for them to further […]
