This song takes me back a few years.  Okay, a few decades.

Written by Shel Silverstein and performed by The Irish Rovers.

Little Things

19 Jul

I have to admit it’s a little thing.

But sometimes the little things are nice.

The local public library just added my novel, The Outer Rims, to their collection.

That’s nice.

Kindle Unlimited

18 Jul

Kindle UnlimitedAmazon has just started a “Kindle Unlimited” feature in their store.

For one price ($9.99 per month) you have access to over half a million books.  Read as many as you want!

It’s kind of a Netflix for books.

While this is not a new business model, Amazon is certainly the biggest dog in the marketplace to try this approach.  I think the key to their success will be the quality of the books they offer.

As a writer I’m interested in how this approach will work out and if it will become a standard way to distribute books.


Would you like to review a book?

Evernote for WritersI’m looking for reviewers for my recently published book, Evernote for Writers.

If you think you might be interested, let me know and I’ll send you a copy of the ebook through the Kindle store.

The book is a description of how I use Evernote in writing blogs, books, children’s books, novels, and screenplays.

Evernote is just a tool but it’s a very useful tool.

Honest reviews are important in marketing ebooks on Amazon and I wanted to make this offer available to those who follow my blog.  Click on the “CONTACT” link at the top right  of this page and I’ll send a copy of the book to the email address you indicate.

A couple of talented guys

10 Jul

I think of Bob Hope as a vaudeville comedian and Bing Crosby’s partner in several Road movies.  James Cagney played a series of tough guys in a series of movies in the 30’s but I remember him as the captain of a ship in Mr. Roberts.  But two men had other talents.  They could dance.

Would this make a good exercise video?
