Here I sit, a blank stare on my face. I now have a created blog and have no earthly idea what to do next. Why and who would want to read anything I have to say about anything? I have no clue, but everyone seems to have one and wants to share what seems like every little detail of life and their opinions.
As someone who has now written close to a million words in novel format I should be able to just puke it out it great volumes. Yet here I sit, a blank mind with no sense of where or what should be put here next. Would anyone want to know I think Joan Rivers unfairly won Celebrity Apprentice, probably not. Would they care that I think Adam is a shoe-in to win Idol, probably not. Or that I was very pleased to see that Dr. House finally got Lisa E. in the sack. Whats next Booth giving bone to Bones. And when will Zeva throw Tony to the ground and have her way with him?
Is that what keeps us coming back week after week to watch these nightly dramas? How far can you ratchet up the sexual tension of two characters and not have them sneak off (on camera of course) and do the deed. Obviously you can drag it out for season after season as these programs have shown. As a writer, have I cheated my reader by making sex so easy and free wheeling in my books. Am I missing the mark in not ratcheting up the sexual tension in the encounters that layer my characters? I suppose only my readers can judge or determine that and book sale will drive that question to whatever conclusion the future hold.
Sense most will be driven to this blog from the many sites that promote my writings, it seems a no-brainer that this is exactly what the blog should be about, my books and what opinions people have of them. I look forward to comment and critique both positive and negative from any who choose to share an opinion. If you feel you have the skill to write a complete review after reading the work, please feel free to do so. Be aware I may use your words as other publishers do to promote the book. Well where can I get your book in order to do that you ask? To make it easy I will post the link either within this post or elsewhere once I have gone through the blog learning process.
If you own an Amazon Kindle, I have reduced the selling price of the book too under a buck so that I may offer it to a wider audience of readers or if you don't own a Kindle you can read it for free on Novelmaker.com. The novelmaker version is not the edited version and will very somewhat from the published manuscript. The book is 600 plus pages and five star rated under mystery/thriller, erotic romance, and erotica in general. I will be posting select chapters here as well as teasers to entice you to read, or yes buy the book. If you would like a complimentary copy in e-format ( word.doc or doc.x) e-mail me with the newest version of word you can accept, and I will forward it to you. The only thing I ask is that you post a comment after reading or post a review on Amazon kindle after reading.
I am looking for a Literary Agent as well as a hardcover publisher. Of the three publishing offers I have received to-date none are acceptable and have all been from Vanity press publishers. Any ideas you may have to assist me in this quest will be greatly appreciated as well. Ok you somewhat have my interest, you may be saying. Tell me a little about your story and why I should give it a read. And what gives you the background to write about this subject matter.
Ten years in the office products industry, twenty-five years in the Automobile business and most recently, two and a half years owning a strip club. Forty years of compulsive addictive behavior to add flavor of reality to the writing. Write what you know a lot about, so they say, and I have a lifetimes worth to write about addictions. I think I have personally gone through most if not all of them.
