Why do I re-blog and other idiotic thoughts.

b1fda-closeupfour2Maybe  I should start this blog off with a new picture but I haven’t uploaded a new one so you are stuck with my usual. I re-blog articles that I find that interesting enough for me that make a statement that I agree with. Whether it is about writing or an author talking about their work. Sometimes I re-blog reviews by others but very rarely. What is your key to re-blogging?

Lately, I have been doing a lot of reading while letting others do guest posts. Even if I don’t find what they are posting about interesting, I publish them and promote them on my sights. Most are just book tours or book promotions so sorry about flooding you with a bunch of those. But wait, there is more to come! This reminds me of those ads on TV that say but wait, if you order this right now, we will add this or that. This is usually for an over priced item that is why they are offering something extra to lure you in. KDP is doing the same with their matchbook offer so you will by the book. Maybe, no one is interested in getting a ebook if they bought the book. A lot of authors are bundling their series into one book at one price. Have you ever done that? Has it worked for you? I know competition is great out there and each author has to do what they can to get their work in front of the readers. I know a lot of authors are trying whatever gimmick they can to be discovered.

I have completed writing two more books in my head but have not taken the time to use the keyboard to put those two completed on the computer and have it edited. Just for your information, they are IronHeart and Saddle Spur. So, expect them next year to be published, I think?

Have a nice day, talk back. I’m listening. Here is a short plug, “If you are interested in reading a book soon, go to http://www.amazon.com/agmoye ” to pick out something you would like to read.

The most overlooked characteristic of who you want to marry.

This is a very good article and I believe the writer has a serious grasp on what marriage will face some time or another.

(This article was originally published on Kevin A. Thompson’s blog.
I saw it on my daughter’s face book page and shared it on mine, but it’s such an important point I wanted to also post it here – some of the best advice around.)

“In sickness and in health.”On two occasions I have said those words with the full confidence that the couple repeating those words actually knew what they meant.
The first occurrence brought a smile to my face. She had endured and marriage was her reward on the other side of illness. Together they have journeyed through the struggles of a serious disease as boyfriend and girlfriend. Now they would be husband and wife. They knew what “in sickness and in health” meant.
The second occurrence brought a tear to my eye. She had weeks to live. The vow renewal was his gift to her. I almost cut…

Monday, again. almost over thank goodness

b1fda-closeupfour2Monday, the start of the work week always seems to arrive to quick. Even though I am retired from normal work, I still dread Monday. Even though I no longer hold down a regular job, still Monday, I work out my schedule for the week. How much time should I spend writing, how many guest posts should I have on my blogs? How many books should I  read and review, which books should I chose. Since I don’t charge for my reviews and normally never commit to a time frame, it is left up to my desecration on what to review. Do I have any blog tours scheduled this week? Those along with checking with my wife what is planned by her are the items I consider on Monday. I tweet a lot about the subject of my blogs along with re-tweeting other’s tweets. Especially members of A.S.M.S.G and R.R.B.C. Sometimes I tweet Marsocial tweets but not as much as I used to, my site there is sort of inactive. Then I ask myself, how much time should I spend on LinkedIn or GoodReads. I do spend a lot of time there discussing or reading the discussions. By the time I get my road map complete, the day is gone, thank goodness. How was your day? Anything come up unexpected? The unexpected is what throws my week off, depending on my mood is another. Some days I just don’t wish to follow the outline and just do my own thing, like this blog.

On another front, I am toying with creating a web site on WordPress. I have two sites on Google but I guess when they were created I did not know how to use them effectively and they have just sat there. I update them once a year, I guess I should update them more instead of creating another that is easier to change and improve.

talk back, I’m listening. Have a great week.

Janus Complex by Graeme Gibson-my review

Janus Complex – my review

What, Amazon won’t let me give six stars? Okay, five stars it is. An engaging book of fiction, I have read in a long time. Some Americans might find the local Scottish And British slang of the 1960’s difficult to understand but I found reading around it, I caught the meaning and could follow the story with little difficulty buy the end of the book, I was on top of it with ease. A well-written action adventure that grabs you as the story unfolds both in twenty-one year old Jaime Raeborn’s life and his loves. The author’s descriptions are just enough that you will feel like you are right there next to Jaime, feeling what he feels, seeing what he sees. Tasting his bittersweet life while he struggles through it. The sex scenes are very appropriately placed and descriptive enough to place you in the middle of the action. Even though there are several sex scenes they do not dominate the action in the troubled young man’s life. Struggling to become a man, his life is filled with heartache, sorrow and pain. I won’t go to far in-depth but will say this book will take hold of you and make you stay up late at night to find out what happens next. I purchased this almost a year ago and kept skipping over it doing reviews of other books. Now, I wonder what other gems I have in my queue that I should be reading and reviewing.

Back to the story, I am posting the opening scene for your enjoyment and a sample of this book.

Tuesday 31 October 1967 – Glasgow

It was a great day for a funeral, if you can use words like “great” and “funeral” in the same sentence, Jamie Raeburn reflected gloomily. A dense pall of smoke and dust rising from the demolition of the old Saracen Foundry hung in the damp morning air, clinging to clothes and staining buildings. When it was absorbed into the moist autumn air it became almost viscous, filling nostrils and coating tongues. It was so thick you could taste it ! And it was raining… again! But when did it ever do anything else in this God forsaken city, Jamie asked himself? He felt disconsolate and miserable and wished he could be somewhere else, anywhere else, with the events of the last year erased from his memory, like chalk marks on a pavement washed away by rain. The early morning mist that had drifted like a protective ghost around him and had penetrated into every nook and cranny of the city was lifting at last…

A small crowd had gathered, shuffling about on the pavement outside the close, and Jamie felt uncomfortable with the eyes of this throng on him. He still blamed himself for Jack Connolly’s death, even though he knew that doing so was irrational, and he still imagined accusation in every sideways glance. You’re just being paranoid he told himself angrily for the umpteenth time.
