Interviews

Interview_Image

Hi, everyone!

From time to time I’m asked to do an interview. People have hit me up for these all over the place on-line. It’s understandable; I’m everywhere on-line. In this business, in this day, and age, you need to be, I think. However, having requests coming in from different sources can get confusing.

So…

To help keep things from getting confusing, I ask that you please send interview requests to me via the “Contact” page of my website. I have no problem doing interviews. I love doing them, and welcome the requests when they come in. I want to be in touch with my fans, and readers. Just, please, let’s channel the requests through one inlet.

Again, please send any, and all interview requests to me through the “Contact” page of my website.

Thank you all!

Blog Hops?

Hello, all.

It’s been a while – years – since I partook in a blog hop. Is anyone putting one together for the near future? An author-oriented one? If so, I’d love to be a part of it. Shoot me a line from the “Contact” section of my website, and let me know, please. I can’t wait to hear from you!

Harper’s Histories

Sasquatch_Face

Hello, all!

I’m back to work on the next sasquatch history article for Bigtruth. This is the 21st blog post I’ve done in the series. This one focuses on the state of Maryland. I would’ve had this one done ages ago if not for my fibromyalgia, and a bit of miscommunication.

Speaking of sasquatch, just a few minutes ago I was listening to an account of YouTube of a Native American tribesman who claimed to have been in telepathic contact with sasquatch. He claimed they travel to, and from Earth by way of energy portals. I’ve had enough odd things to happen in my own life that I’m not one to quickly dismiss anyone’s claims out of hand. Still, I firmly believe that sasquatch are a fully biological species, native to Earth. I believe them to be some form of primate.

What about all of you? And, please, no one waste time, or space, with posts claiming sasquatch don’t exist. If that’s your belief, fine; keep it to yourself, please. I’ve seen at least one of them, and had other experiences than sightings. I know they’re out there. But I’m curious as to what my readers think of them. Do you think sasquatch are a biological species of Earth? Do you think they’re extraterrestrial? From some other dimension? Let me know, please!

Back To The Blog?

A while back I mostly stopped posting to this blog, in favor of using my Facebook fan page. Lately, I’ve been thinking about reversing that, and returning to this blog. What do you all think?

Even with my fibromyalgia, I’m still writing. Things just move MUCH more slowly now. But, there is still writing news, and other things, to report, and talk about.

So, what do you think? Should I start using this blog again?

1st Bigtruth Article

Harper's History

Not too many days ago I mentioned that I’ve been working on an article for the “Bigtruth” blog. That piece, and the series it kicks off, deals with sasquatch in a more historical light. For those interested, that first article is on-line now. Please check it out on the Bigtruth blog right here. The owner of the blog are calling this series as a whole “Harper’s History”.

Name

To date, I’ve never really given my WordPress blog a real name. It’s featured on the homepage of my website, too. Should I give it a real name? What would the benefits of that be for me, the blog, and my website? Can anyone tell me?

Every Day

For the past three months or so I’ve been making a very concerted effort to post a new entry on my blog/website each and every day. Along with that, I’ve been trying hard to make sure that each post is a minimum of 150-words-long due to SEO tactics. The reasons for this are:

1) I want to keep in touch with my fans and readers. Not every public figure is accessible to their fans. I don’t want to be like that. I love my fans.

2) Keeping the blog/site active helps draw SEO numbers, keeping it higher on search result listings.

3) Some people consider a blog or site that hasn’t updated recently—some go so far as to limit “recently” to 24 hours—as useless, and unworthy of their time.

In short, I’m attempting to keep this site/blog as up to date as I can, as active as I can. This is because I want to stay in touch with my fans, and potential fans. At the same time, I don’t make money from posts here. I need to work. As you know, I’m busy on several projects, both co-written by my talented wife Desirée Lee, solo projects, and things co-written with other people. Aside from being a bestselling, award-winning writer, I’m also a husband and father. So, one post per day on this blog/site can be a challenge. However, I am trying to continue that, and will for the foreseeable future.

“Man of Steel” Review—”Nuclear Winter Entertainment”

The day before the public release of “Man of Steel”, the latest Superman movie, Desirée and I were to attend an advance release screening for the film. Our review is now on-line as part of our writings for “Nuclear Winter Entertainment”. It can be found at http://nuclearwinterent.com/nw/2013/06/15/man-of-steel/

Theater Etiquette

Desirée Lee and I were fortunate enough to be able to attend a pre-screening of the new Superman movie, “Man of Steel”, yesterday evening. While Desirée has been able to see several films in theaters before those movies were open to the general public, “Man of Steel” was my first time for that. While we both wanted to see the film, the real reason we were there was work. Both Desirée and myself are writers for the website “Nuclear Winter Entertainment”. We attended the advance showing of “Man of Steel” in order to have a review on the Nuclear Winter website today—the day of the film’s general release. I’ll be posting a blog announcing when the review is up. It has been written and submitted to Nuclear Winter for review. Much as I truly loved “Man of Steel”, the entire theater experience would have been so much better if the people around us would have been more courteous.

Several people whipped out cell phones around us, and started texting a few times. Older children and young teens kept getting up, walking out, and coming back in with fresh drinks and popcorn—the same few over and over and over and over and over—walking directly in front of us, blocking the screen. These same children had taken seats a few rows away from their parents, and kept getting up even more to go back and talk to them.

Another issue was with the smaller children. Yes, “Man of Steel” is a Superman film. It’s also rated PG-13, and for good reason. Read the review of the film that Desirée and I wrote for more on that. Parts of the film caused Desirée to tear up a bit. One part of the film was so intense and dramatic that I simply went into shock and cried a little. Again, the film is PG-13 for a reason! That rating means a film isn’t suitable for small children. Young children shouldn’t be in the theater for a PG-13 film. Know what happens? The same thing that happened during “Man of Steel” last night—the young children are overwhelmed by what they’re seeing on screen. They freak out. They cry. They shriek. They disturb everyone around them who is trying to enjoy the movie.

Please pay attention to theater etiquette when you go to a movie:

-Keep you cell phone OFF.

-Don’t talk.

-Be in your seat BEFORE the movie starts.

-Once the film has started, STAY IN YOUR SEAT until the film has ended if that’s at all possible.

-Don’t take children to films with ratings inappropriate to their ages.

All of these bits of etiquette were violated numerous times during “Man of Steel” last night. This is why I’m not often to be found in the theater for a film. Please use some common sense, and allow everyone else around you to enjoy the movie.

Thank you.
