My Authorgraph Page


I’m sure I’ve mention this on this blog/website before. I’m also sure that it’s been a good long time since I did so.

I have a page on Authorgraph. That’s a website that allows readers and fans to buy e-book, and have them autographed digitally for free. Find my Authorgraph page here. I have “Quintana Roo, Yucatan”, “Quagmire Fen”, and “Hidden Tribe” listed on the site currently.

Just. One. Book. Curiosities.

Greetings. I THINK I’ve responded to all emails. There’s a chance I haven’t. There’s 30K words of my new book due to my writing group on Sunday so naturally I’m blogging with you all instead.

THANK YOU! You all are one generous bunch of mammals! You are from every English speaking country on the planet at this point. You care about books and young adults and care that no one who wants to read is left without books to read.

Many of you have posted suggestions that we are looking into. I’ve passed on your links, your grant suggestions, etc. to the people who can best deal with them. I am learning to delegate authority and put myself out of work. Yay!

Green Bay is lovely by the way. JUNE is a good month for Green Bay. Mild not too humid. And these people love craft beer and cheese with…

Manic Readers


All of you are probably familiar with the book review site Manic Readers. Three of my works – “Quintana Roo, Yucatan” (my bestseller), “Quagmire Fen“, and “Hidden Tribe” (coauthored with my wife Desirée Lee) are on that site. If you’re a Manic Readers member, please check out those projects for us, and review them. For some reason, reviews are hard to gather, and authors need all of them that we can gather!

Vampire Corpses?


As I’ve talked about here before, being a bestselling author of, among other genres, horror and the paranormal I find articles such as this one very interesting. And, given the amount of traffic I see going to old posts involving such things – especially where vampires are concerned, I like to share things like this here.

What do you all think of that article?

Father’s Day 2016


Yesterday was Father’s Day. My wife and daughter made sure that I had a great one! I hope that all of you had a terrific one, too!

Also, today is Litha – also known as Midsummer. I hope everyone has a good, safe one, too!

As a lot of you seem to know, tomorrow is my birthday. My thanks to all of you for the birthday well wishes that are coming in!

Just. One. Book.

I live in a town of 1200 people in the Northern Sierra Nevada –where it meets the Cascade Range near Mt. Lassen National Park and about two hours drive northwest of Reno, NV.  Two hundred of that population is students. Over the years as the population dwindled after mines closed, then mills–nothing except tourism and retirement have emerged as ‘industries.’ Many businesses have closed down and with it many things we take for granted—like libraries.

The local junior/senior high school has not been able to purchase new books since the 90s. Some of the “check outs” for old books are in the 1980s. There are no books by people of color in the library. Hardly any books by women are in the few book cases except your standard Austen and Lee. It’s an uninviting place. There hasn’t been a librarian for nearly a decade. And volunteers weren’t allowed. The…
