Another Paladin’s Way Freebie on AMAZON !

Okay, Here goes another freebie promo.  I’m giving away Episode 1 of Soulstone for free from the 20th thru the 22nd of January.  That’s Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  It’s a short so it won’t take long to read.  Hope Y’all enjoy.  I’ll be doing more promoting this year and I plan to release the third book in the series in the September 2018 time-frame.  If you like adventure stories, I think you’ll like the upcoming book in the Paladin’s Way series.  In the meantime go grab the free episode from Amazon.  They’ll be back to $.99 on Tuesday.

By the way, I didn’t do a new years post so I just wanted to wish you a happy new year.  If you are writing the next great American novel,  I hope you take time to enjoy the gifts you have in your life.   If you’re stuck, I hope it all breaks free for you and flows right onto the dang page.

Have a wonderful week.

 

Peace,

Lee

 

 

 

 

Divergence

roads” And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back”.

From The Road Not Taken, By Robert Frost.

It’s a fearful and wondrous thing how our lives are sometimes nudged by events and the actions of others to put us here.  Take the day and believe in something good.  Give life a chance and let yourself be amazing.

It’s there around the turn.  Just waiting.

Be well,

Lee

Thoughts

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted here.  Sorry it’s taken so long but that’s how it usually works with blogs.  You start out all gung-ho and you find yourself losing momentum like a dying worm on a hot sidewalk.

I have been working in spite of my innate sorry-ness.  The fourth book is at the 50 K mark.  Whew.  Thought I’d never get there. 😊

I’ve made it a priority to stay on top of the query letters.  The other three novels are in various stages of editing or out on query.

Good news if you are looking for a great read.  My good friend and a brilliant storyteller and novelist, H.L. Stephens, is about to bring out her next work.  You can check out her latest at this site.  Her new site is here.  Be sure to mark and check back on her new site as it’s still under construction.   If you’re looking for great presents, She’s on Amazon here and Barnes and Noble here.  Stay alert.  She’s a rising star.

That brings me to another thought.  I’ve been doing research on the Indy publishing scene for fiction since I’m a capitalist and the idea of money is near and dear to my heart😂.  It seems that for a new fiction writer there is evidence that Indy is the way to go.  For non-fiction, perhaps, not so much.  This needs a little more study and thought.  It’s a winding road at best.  And there are monsters.  I’m just saying.  The link to the Forbes article is here.

Stephen King said  “When asked, “How do you write?” I invariably answer, “One word at a time,” and the answer is invariably dismissed. But that is all it is. It sounds too simple to be true, but consider the Great Wall of China, if you will: one stone at a time, man. That’s all. One stone at a time. But I’ve read you can see that m*****f*****r from space without a telescope.”  Goodreads

Yup.  You nailed it Mr. King.
