Done

Normally, I feel accomplished when I complete a book. But this one was tough. I worked really hard on Yellow Diamond Hunter. This isn’t like the Barcode Series. The story structure is very particular and the editing is much more precise than it was in the past. I’m sure there are still mistakes that I will correct over time, but until I can afford professional editing, I’ll have to work with what I have. Yellow Diamond Hunter can be purchased on Amazon by clicking on the link. Please add a…

Barcode: Demon of Gods

If you’re seeing a new post from me, you know what that means. You’ll notice that the description for the book is very short and I haven’t said a word about the plot. There are far too many twists this time. I can’t tell you what this is about, but don’t stop reading. I wrote this one to piss you off. You’re only punishing yourself if you stop early. Amazon Side note: Remember, these are books 5 and 6. Currently, you can only download the book from Amazon. Simon, your…

For those of you that are caught up in the series, you know that Kode was last faced with an incredible task, challenging thousands of gladiators. Well, the time has come to see the results. Barcode: Eyes That Kill picks up right where New War Order left off. You won’t miss a blink. If you’re excited about action, you won’t have to worry about missing that either. There is no fade to black scene for anyone…

Why ‘Self-Helps’ Don’t Help (Part 2)

Review In yesterday’s post, I decided to expose the “psychic nature” of Self-Helps. In other words, I expressed reasons why Self-Helps don’t work. Today, I want to give specific examples. I’d like to compare real life situations to Self-Help genres. Why ‘Self-Helps’ Don’t Help Relationships Let’s start with the numero uno, grand champion of failing Self-Helps. First thing to note in Amazon’s genre filter: Relationship books aren’t even listed under Self-Help. They’re hidden. The smart people at Amazon know that if you’re looking for a novel about being a better…

Selling Big in Amazon Kindle Store

When it comes to selling eBooks in Amazon’s Free books section, people think that it’s quite simple. Either you’re ignorant or you’re intentionally being disrespectful when you claim, “I don’t want to give my book away for free.” Give? Hah! You can’t give your book away for free on Amazon. People have to want it. They have to go through the same steps they use to buy any item on Amazon. You’re not giving shit away. You’re selling it without receiving a profit. How do you sell your book on…

Selling Books Isn’t Easy

When I worked at a real estate office as an administrative assistant (a suicide worthy job) I knew a guy that did his best to deliver daily quotes that would linger in your mind. He was the type of person that intentionally said something witty to impress you. For example: “Morning, Dave!” “Morning, Kash.” “How’s it going?” “You know! I can’t complain and it probably wouldn’t do any good if I did.” I can honestly tell he lived by his philosophies. He wasn’t the type to complain without looking for…

Barcode: New War Order Release

Currently, I’m still in the process of developing New War Order. However, I haven’t had time to write any chapters for a long time. For those that read other post, you may have known that I didn’t have a job after relocating to Southern California. I searched diligently and couldn’t find anything until recently. Now, I’m working at a real estate company doing the same thing I do here, blogging. I manage SEO and social media websites. My goal is to drive traffic to websites. Though I knew a little…

Concept Art for Barcode: Cavern of Youth

It’s in! The artwork for Barcode: Cavern of Youth is finally here. I was so excited when I saw the concepts for Barcode: Legend of Apollo. Initially I assumed I couldn’t be surprised twice, but it happened. I love going to my Facebook and seeing the number “1” on my messages. I always know who it’s from. My cover art designer sends me regular updates about her process and asks a lot of questions. She’s pretty busy and doesn’t have time to read the novels. Because of that, we type…

An Update For Barcode: Cavern of Youth

I’m currently editing Book 2 of the Barcode series. I love writing. I really do. It takes my mind off things and lets me concentrate on my characters problems instead of my own. It’s an excellent way to avoid the real world. But writing and editing are difficult. I write quickly and make a lot of mistakes. My editing normally carries on for months, both before and after I receive comments from my editor. For this novel, Barcode: Cavern of Youth, I’ll actually have two editors. The first one is…
