Attention Writers and Readers!

The publishing industry is a maze with unforeseen pitfalls.
As most know, in the past few years, some major international brick and mortar book stores have gone out of business with the explosion of e-publishing and self-publishing. Smaller, local booksellers are often struggling to survive and the big stores like Costco, Walmart and others don't provide much by way of individual service and selection to readers.

Barnes and Noble remains, but is out on an island by themselves, still providing the same quality service they always have, but even they aren't immune to the influences from the few major publishers that remain. The major publishers have almost absolute control of the market--the pricing, the supply and the choices available. That's not necessarily a complaint, it's just a fact.

Repeat Offender Release Date, Book Cover Voting & Book Giveaway

Daimon Monroe
As many of you know, I've been writing REPEAT OFFENDER, a Las Vegas true-crime story. In short, the story is about an investigation I led into Sin City’s most prolific career criminal, Daimon Monroe. It involved millions in stolen property, revolting sex crimes and murder-for-hire when Monroe tried to hire someone to kill me, a judge and a prosecutor.

I'm pleased to announce WildBlue Press is releasing REPEAT OFFENDER on April 14th, 2015. You can pre-order yours for Kindle from WildBlue Press through Amazon right here at this link. It will be available for pre-order in other formats and print soon. Take advantage of the pre-order pricing while you can!

Right now and for only a few days, WildBlue Press is testing five cover images for the book and I would like your vote. Go to this book cover vote link here to let us know what you think. You might win one of twenty free copies of the book from WildBlue Press!

The Backwards Theory of Giving

I wrote this a couple days ago on Facebook and decided to share it here on my blog as well. I hope you're encouraged as much as I was.

Do you ever feel led to do something for another out of the blue? It doesn't have to be something huge, it might be something small. Do you ever listen to that voice? I did today.

I wasn't going to tell this story, because I don't like how it comes off--I think people who tell others about when they've been generous or kind have received their reward in full the minute they open their mouth about it. But, I've decided to tell you about this for one reason only: to encourage as many of you as I can to listen to that voice when it speaks.
