Hello again,

 

Thanks for stopping by to read my ramblings.

 

Do you have an e-Reader? If so, there are a lot of free books floating around for you to pick up.

 

Most are romance, mystery, paranormal, and even adult themes.  Whatever you like to read can be found just by looking a little at different sites.

 

For example, Pixel of Ink offers four a day. You can sign up for their e-mail here: http://www.pixelofink.com

 

FreeBooksy offers various categories of books for free: http://freebooksy.com/

 

If you are on Facebook, search for your favorite author, a book club, a publisher, or the style of reading you like, example: fiction, mystery, crime, romance, dark fiction, paranormal or sci-fi.  You will find many authors listed, go to their page and see if they list give-a-ways. if so, you may want to friend them and join in on their contests.

 

There are some authors or idie publishers that give-a-way books all the time. You just have to look for them.

 

I try to share on Facebook any that come into my page. I feel that it is an author's place to help other authors promote their works. I would hope that they would promote mine as well.

 

With it being winter and not very many warm days, there is nothing better to do than read a book.  You might as well grab all the free ones you can, besides the ones you buy for yourself.  Like that old saying for almost anything: There are never too many books.

 

Now it is your turn. Tell us where do you get your books from?   Please leave a message below letting us all know how you do it.

 

Remember that you can read an eBook even if you don't have a special reader like Kindle or Nook. They have an app that you can download for free at their respective websites.

 

So go buy a book or get one free lol!   And read!

 

Until next time,

John

Hello again from the frozen northwest part of Indiana.

 

Storm came through and dumped almost 7 inches of snow. Roads are not being as cleared as they used to be. Seems nothing is as good as it once was.

 

We lost another gazebo in this storm. I looked at 7 am and it was fine. But, when I go out there to clear it off as 8:30, it had collapsed and was destroyed.

 

We will not do that kind again.  If I do anything at all to replace it, it will be built out of wood and stone.

 

Writing world has been put on hold here. It is that time of year where all the major assignments come in and need to be graded.

 

It takes roughly a half-hour to grade each one and having 74 major projects to grade plus the other assignments eats of most of my time.

 

Once this week is over (16-20th) we will be on break and I may be able to find the time to work on the rewrite of the novels.

 

Now how are you?

 

I really wish that some of you that read this blog would leave comments on how your world is going. It would be nice to read about you and what your interests are and how well you are doing.

 

The comment section below is not hard to do, so please consider leaving a message and letting us all know how you are doing.

 

Over a thousand readers check this blog, so there has to be someone with something to say.

 

If you would like to author a guest post, please leave me a message with your email I will contact you to set up the guest post.

 

I hope each and every one of  you have a Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday season, no matter which holiday you observe.  And a joyous New Year!

 

 

 

Until next time,

John

Mother Nature is so confused. She can't make up her mind if the temperature should be 62 with severe storms like today, Sunday the 17th or 35 with snow on the ground like last week and what is predicted for Tuesday of this week.

 

My hobby of Amateur Radio has been fun lately, because there are a lot of special operations around the world that we call DXpeditions.  I have worked all of them, but the latest one in Myanmar. I have until the 22 or 26th to contact them. Hopefully I will, as this is the last trip anyone will make to the island this year.

 

Okay, on the writing front, things are slow here as I have been doing too much radio operating.

 

How about you?  Are you doing the November Writing Exercise?

(See last Blog if you don’t know what I am talking about.)

 

 

If you are or not, how about leaving a comment down below on what you are doing?  Even if you are not a writer, you can leave a comment and let us know what favorite thing you are doing this month.

 

We would love it if you shared your passion with us.

 

One more week until Thanksgiving is here, then just a few more weeks before Christmas.  Seems the year is flying by, of course if you ask a teacher, they will say not fast enough as it is not June yet. HA! HA!

 

Do you have any special plans for the holidays?  If so, share with us by leaving a comment.

 

 

Until next time,

John

It finally happened. They say it is coming.  I don't want it!

 

That nasty word has been spoken too many times today and by too many people.

 

Yes, you guessed it. It's that nasty four letter word that makes people cringe when they hear it.

 

Snow!  Suppose to start tomorrow, Monday, Veteran's Day. Yea me! 

 

I Hate Snow!

 

Lake effect snow is the worst thing one can hear on the local news. Oh, how Lake Michigan hates us.

 

3 to 8 inches.  The first snow and it is to be 3 to 8 inches. Come on!

 

The predictions are more snow this winter, but this is ridiculous.  That's too much for the first snow.

 

Then next Saturday, back up to 51 degrees.

 

Why can't it just stay 51 all winter?  Where is that damn global warming when you want it?

 

Okay, enough said.

 

This is November. The month of: NaNoWriMo

 

National Novel Writing Month.

 

Are you writing one?   If so, how far into are you? Care to share what it is about?

 

Leave a message down below and tell us all about it. We are anxious to hear your news. It has to be better than the snow news, ha ha!

 

NaNoWriMo runs from the 1st to the 30th of November every year.  The plan is to get people to write 50,000 words of a new novel.  This is first draft writing, that you can finish after the month is over. But, the first 50,000 words have to be written this month.

 

Can you do it? 

 

As Bob the Builder used to say, "Yes, I can!"

 

Okay it is your time to share. Tell us what you are writing or doing in a comment down below.  We are waiting to hear.

 

Oh!  In reference to the last blog, yes I was able to make contact with Wake Island twice on different frequencies.

 

Until next time,

John

Certainly hope you downloaded a copy of the two books that have been free for the past four weeks.

 

If you did please go back to smashwords.com and leave a review on the page for whichever book you bought.

 

My hobby is Amateur Radio. Right now there are several DX-peditions going on. A DX-pedition is where one or several Amateurs go to a country/island to operate.

 

One of those this week is Wake Island in the Pacific.  This is the one I am trying hard to get, as I have never worked that Island.  The other Dx-peditons going on I have worked on several times on different frequencies.

 

So, any spare minute will be used to try to contact Wake Island.

 

Enjoy the week and I will write again when I get time.

 

Feel free to leave a message and tell us what you are up to, down below.

 

Until next time,

John
