Murderous Tales is almost ready to be released to the public. The cover work is all that is left and then to decide which publisher to go with.


Murderous Tales is a collection of short stories dealing with a woman that kills for the kicks, a man that does it for revenge and another one to just get rid of his wife, and lastly, one young woman to save another woman.


It will most likely come out as an E-book first and if sales go good, then I will look at publishing it in book form.


Shooting for it to be out by April, but that may be pushing it with all the preparations that must be made to set it up for all the different types of e-readers. I want to make sure that no matter what type of reader you have you will be able to read it just like any other book.


This will be a new experience for me as I have always tried to get the novels published the old fashioned way of looking for an agent or publisher that deals with fiction. But, in these trying times it seem that unless your name is King , Patterson, Clancy and now Larsson, you will not be picked up by a large publishing house.

You will have to concentrate on the small publishers or go develop your publishing company and print on demand your own and others books.

This can be very costly. Most POD start at 500 bucks and go up from there. if you are rich then publishing your own books may be the way to go. Of course, if you're that rich or famous, publishers will walk over others to get you for their house.


Anway, we will see how the E-book route goes with Murderous Tales and keep working on re-writing the novels, hoping that I can convince a publishing house to take a chance on them.


What have you decided to do with your books?  Leave a message and let us all know.


Until later,

I started a new Blog last week and as I neared the end, the computer wiped it out. Now to try again, but this time with a different thought instead.


Have you ever thought about what it is you want to do before you go? I don't mean write the next great novel, but what is it that you really want?


A family, home, fancy car, a companion hanging on your arm, or just a life full of laughter and drunken nights.


Maybe you want to travel and see the world. Some of it is quite beautiful and most is not.

I have been around the world and really don't feel like doing that again.


Maybe I want to just sit here and watch the sun rise in the morning and set at night. Would be better if I lived on a lake where the view would be better.


How about living without pain, no more soreness from the old wounds, or even the arthritis that is setting into these old bones. Maybe to just hear the birds sing again.


But most of all, it would be nice to just look you in the eyes and see the sky, and look at your smile and see into your heart. To know that you will always be there to brighten up my day and to warm up my nights.


What if I write that great novel, who will benefit?  Not me, that is for sure. Most likely the only way it will be publish is if one of the kids decided to pursue it after I am long gone.


So how about you?  Have You Thought?


What is it that you want? Is there that one thing, or more, that you want done before you leave?


Have You Thought?


Recently, I watched The Bucket List. It was a nice show and that is coming from a guy that does not watch a lot of movies. I am not sure if I would want to make a list. For sure don't want to travel anymore and have to fight the security at all the airports.


Have you made a list like they did in the movie? Have you started to mark things off?


If not, why?   Are you going to get around to it?  If you are young don't wait. Start now!


Have You Thought?


It is time. Sit down and think!


Then leave a comment telling us what it is you thought about and the decisions you made.


We promise not to laugh, but to listen carefully.

See you,
