It was only a matter of time…
Imaginary bonus points if you catch the Doctor Who reference.
I would write a check to the ALS Association, too, but…writer.
Instead, whatever I make off my books this weekend, I’ll donate that to the ALS Association. So order or download Earths in Space or RIP this weekend, Aug. 23 and 24, and your purchase will be extra-meaningful.
I now pass the challenge on to a few friends of mine — one author, one musician, and one actress: Dana Cornell, author of My Mother’s Ring; Samson Trinh, founder of Uke ‘n’ Roll, and actress/singer/entertainer Holland Gedney. Have fun, ladies and gentleman.
This was recently discovered hiding somewhere within my parents’ house.
I’m sure this 64-page novelization of Who Framed Roger Rabbit holds up as a literary classic, especially since no author is credited on the cover.
And why doesn’t the title have a question mark?
A box full of escapist sci-fi fun arrived at my door the other day, but it seems to contain a bunch of duplicates.
Guess I’ll just have to sell them at the Hanover Book Festival on Aug. 9.
Today’s my birthday, so I’ll be a little extra blatant and say:
The best way to wish authors a happy birthday is to buy their books.
Just a thought.
My niece Rose says, “You need to read Earths in Space and RIP so Uncle Danny can buy me more toys and spoil me rotten.”
She’s so excited, her face has become a blur of motion.
We all need exercise. It’s easy to get sucked in to many hours at the computer, making it all the more important to prioritize getting out there and being active.
My preferred workout is martial arts training. Here’s a nice little video/commercial that mentions several benefits of such a program:
If you’re in or around Central Virginia Saturday, please stop by and meet a whole bunch of authors. Maybe even buy their books. Since my books are only digital, I won’t be handling any money, but I will have free samples and cards to hand out. Come say hello!
Sorry to those of who you aren’t in Virginia. I’ll make sure my next post is less geographically specific.
This is what my 3-year-old niece does to my bookshelf basically every time she visits:
Attack of the hand-me-down Smurfs.

Are you an aspiring filmmaker and/or screenwriter?
Then you need to check out Taliesin Nexus’ programs.
I attended their 2011 Filmmakers Workshop, and it was a great experience. I met lots of working Hollywood professionals who gave great (if sometimes conflicting) advice on working in the industry. I also got my RIP pilot script in the hands of a working producer. He passed on it, but he actually read the work of an unknown like me.
Don’t ignore opportunities like this.
