I was hoping people might be a bit more forgiving if I mentioned I'd written a book. I got tarred and feathered over on the Kindle Store forum for having the audacity to mention that the people might be interested in my novel. By the time I found this forum I was feeling a little insecure.  :-\ :D

Okay, you all have inspired me. I will post to my blog really soon. I will not let all the demands on my time stop me from tending my blog. After I checked out the blogs of my fellow authors, I'm even going to redo my own blog to make it look nicer. I will let you know when it's ready for prime time.

Even though my book, Gemini Rising, is a post-apocalyptic/science fiction romance, I've been blogging on the oil spill. By doing so, I've connected with some really great people that are working the gulf to bring help and assistance to the populace.

If you have time, please take a look at my blog and visit the websites included. They just need to know someone still cares, now that the news media is no longer reporting on the oil spill. If you want, feel free to link back to it from your blog to help me get the word out.

Thanks for taking a look.

Well, naturally I forgot to post that Victorine had my first 400 words of 'Eland Dances' on her blog, as part of her 'Hook Victorine Challenge'
I am glad to report that
 1) she says she was 'hooked'
2) I posted about that on my blog - a few minute ago, after reading this thread

Why Doubting Yourself Can Kill You

http://sciencefictionfantasybooks.net/why-doubting-yourself-can-kill-you/

I posted some excerpts from a brilliant blog post by Devon Monk, and then riffed on it:
Quote
As writers, we have to be able to edit ourselves and to read our own work from the point of view of someone who doesnt know us, or even like us. We have to try to be objective. We have to be humble. We have to have high standards for ourselves and strive for continual improvement.

But if you dont love your work, if you arent enthusiastic about it, if youre not having the time of your life when you write it, if you cant focus on the things youre doing well and feel good about those things, then maybe no one else will either.

See the good in you.

I posted what I'm writing next, a 4th and 5th novel. One a sequel to Don't Mess With Earth, which I'm considering re-writing after some very good constructive feedback from some who think it's dry as toast and how the timeline doesn't work for them, but I'm not sure, maybe I ought to just leave it alone. Anyway, you'd just have to go take a looksee.... http://cliffball.blogspot.com

My blog has been so sparsely used that it still has that "new blog" smell. But I've started a short story, a mini-prequel to A Shunned Man, in response to a reader's suggestion. So I'm posting pieces of that story as I write them, probably about twice a week.

I'm also trying to decide how to use the blog to promote indie authors, but nothing definite has come to me yet.

Just posted to gab about my sales in August so far, which are best described as abysmal. :)

I've also posted a short story or two.  You should drop by and check it out!
  Stars Rain Down Now Available!
    In the ashes of invasion, mankind struggles for survival.
    Some will run,
    Others will hide,
    But a few will rise up and fight back.
    What would you fight for? What would you die for?

Losing my laptop & flash drive with the files for all of my novels has slowed me down at posting to my site. I was moving right along with the serialization of Fiddlesticks. Now I'm typing like crazy, using the last proofing copy as my reference. Only 50,000 words to go. But I have limited access to this decrepit computer.

Oh well, I hope to start posting installments in the series again next week. And yes, it looks like I will be able to post kindle versions as well.

I sometimes post about books I've just read and really liked and tag them as recommended books. Yesterday I posted about Half Broke Horses, by Jeannette Walls. I also put up a new banner photo which I took (and is awesome, if I say so myself). It's of a stormy, late-July, evening sky over Petrified Forest National Park, AZ. Here's my blog: The Inconsequential Blogger

If you want to see a short video clip of the storm off on the desert horizon at sunset, go here, scroll to the end of the post, and click play on the little video clip window.
