Catching up…

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:46 AM by Administrator

I seemed to think that having a blog attached to my website was going to get me more involved with reaching out to my audience.  Obviously since it’s been about 10 months since my last entry, that has not been the case.  To be quite frank, this time frame has been extremely busy and with no new material to showcase, there’s been no other forces nudging me into doing so except simple fear that a nearly empty and stagnant blog would be more of an embarrasment than a marketing tool.

That’s not to say that I’ve been stagnant in my endeavors.  This outlet is no true indicator of what is churning in my brain, nor that which has made it to paper. (Yes I still use paper/pen to write… for me it’s easier to jot down a few sentences on the fly this way)

So what have I been up to?  I’ve written a short story which I will soon be turning into an e-book.  The bottom line is that it is a work of fiction which is intended to touch those who are involved in direct marketing/network marketing/pyramid schemes/whatever new popular name applies to efforts to sell products/services that would otherwise be widely available in a store if anybody really wanted them.  This mini-novelette pokes a little humor at those who jump in without learning any business or marketing savvy using the backdrop of a small resort hotel (one that was depicted in my novel LOST WAGES).  My intent is to provide a means to allow the folks who are going all in and putting friend/family relationships at risk to realize not everyone is excited about their new opportunity.  It will be out soon for a rock bottom price on a major digital media outlet, but I’ll send out free copies through email to anyone who is interested.

I’ve still been working through some ideas for the third book in the LOST WAGES trilogy.  I’m still early in writing and its probably not coming out in 2013, particularly if my newest project starts leading me in another direction.  I’m starting to throw down some rough background for a Las Vegas based TV series that I will be writing.   I’ve been inspired by the new outlets for such shows, between Netflix and YouTube, etc.  Within a short while I will be putting words to paper for the pilot episode and look to put together 12 shows total for a first season.  My intent is to gather a team of people to partner with who could either assist or direct me to individuals that would want to become involved.  Since all I have to bring to the table is my stories, it will be an uphill climb, but I absolutely believe that there will be life for some very interesting characters if I can pull this off.

So as you can see, my time has been filled, in spite of the lack of appearance online in this forum.  Hopefully the next visit will be much sooner!

Take care and cheers!
