Two Sides to a Story

It’s amazing how two people can tell one story differently. An elementary student views a teacher’s criticism as embarrassing. To be reprimanded in front of their friends can seem like the end of their world. But the teacher can view that moment as an opportunity for growth. A husband can kiss his wife goodnight to express his love. The wife can think he has an ulterior motive. “He wants something.” A guy can think that he finally made love to his girl. The girl can feel that she was raped. There…

White Noise 2 Life 

White Noise

The above image was a view from my friends’ beautiful wedding. If you look closely enough, you’ll see a helicopter hovering above the lake. We were delayed by two hours because of the white noise that the helicopters produced. There was a fire in the mountains that you see in the image. When things were at their worst, one of the other groomsmen asked, “Is that mist or smoke?” Smoke. There was no hope at that hour, due to the 104 degree temperature.

What’s The Rush?

First, let me admit: I’m guilty of rushing the production of my novels. It’s very true. I’ve released novels before they were ready and suffered the consequences. However, I didn’t have anyone guiding me on the straight and narrow. There was no one yelling, “Slow the eff down!” like I’m doing for you. Producing a novel when it is not ready is a big issue. It’s something that can make or break your sales. So far, I’ve probably resubmitted Barcode: Legend of Apollo at least twenty times. There were large…
