Yesterday was a researching and writing day for me. I got a couple of e-mails back from the Toledo History Museum and the Toledo Police Museum with some links and information about some things I needed for my next Tinder Street book. This means I can probably start working on it once I finish my […]

Back To Work

Well, my latest book, Ka-Bar Karma, is out and doing well on Amazon, and I’ve goofed off as long as I can so it’s time to get back to work. As I said a while back, the normal progression of my writing schedule would be to write the fourth book in my Tinder Street series […]

Ka-Bar Karma Is Out!

Yesterday afternoon I got the final read-through of my new John Lee Quarrels book, Ka-Bar Karma, back from my final proofreader, made her corrections, and uploaded it to Amazon at 5:15 p.m. Less than an hour later, I got a message back that it was available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited. As soon as I […]

Is Today The Day?

I knocked out another 5,000 words in my new Big Lake book yesterday, and I’m hoping today will be the day I finish it, given any unforeseen problems cropping up. Then I will give it a final check for any plot holes or errors before printing out the last chapters for Miss Terry to edit […]

Potpourri

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I don’t have anything else to talk about […]

We Snuck Out

After being tied to my computer for so long getting my new Tinder Street book done, I told Terry I needed to get out of the house for a while. So yesterday we snuck off for a few hours, and it sure felt good. Our son Travis and his wife Geli have been talking about […]

Better Late Than Never

I usually put out four books a year but last year I did six. Part of that was because with the pandemic we weren’t doing any traveling, and part of it was because I wanted to get my new Tinder Street family saga off and running. I had hoped to maintain that schedule this year, […]

I Have Proof!

There is an old saying, well at least as old as the Internet, that if you don’t have pictures it didn’t happen. When a guy brags about a fish he caught, a deer he shot, a woman he met, or a classic car he had, people say if they can’t prove it with a picture, […]

I Am No Historian

I enjoy getting emails and messages from people who read my books. It’s always nice to know that they are enjoying what I do. Sometimes they point out errors, and I have no problem with that. In fact, I appreciate it. If there’s a mistake, I want to correct it. A while back my daughter […]

The Good Years Is Out!

My latest book, The Good Years, book two in the Tinder Street family saga, is now available as an e-book on Amazon. You can find it at this link. There were a few software missteps getting it ready to go, but my wonderful book formatter, Scarlett Braden, got it finished even though she’s in the […]

A Launch Is Coming!

No, not a rocket launch at Cape Canaveral. SpaceX was supposed to launch a Falcon 9 rocket carrying 60 Starlink satellites on Thursday but the launch was scrubbed due to strong currents that would make it difficult for the company’s rocket landing platform to hold its position in the Atlantic Ocean. There was talk of […]

Tired Of This Nonsense

Back in late 2016, Terry and I both bought Moto Z Play smartphones. At the time, Terry was reluctant to give up her old flip phone and didn’t think she needed or wanted a smartphone. But it didn’t take her long to realize the benefits of the newer technology. As for me, I had already […]

Not Burger King

I’m more of a McDonald’s kind of guy, though I have ventured into Burger King more than once in my life. And yesterday, we got a Whopper without even leaving the house. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the kind you eat, it was a whopper of a thunderstorm. It was late in the afternoon, and I was […]

No Time To Be Bored

In a blog a couple of days ago, I wrote about someone saying that she and her husband were bored and getting on each other’s nerves being cooped up all the time due to COVID-19. What’s that like? I don’t know what it’s like to be bored. I don’t think I have ever been bored. […]

Rockets And Idiots

It’s always a thrill to see a rocket lifting off from Cape Canaveral but we have lived here long enough that we don’t always keep track of when the launches are scheduled. I knew that there was one planned for sometime this week that had been delayed earlier because of weather, but it wasn’t until […]
