Hey! It's Friday! Oldest has been retrieved from college for the summer, and the quiet of the house is disturbed by the sounds of her unpacking and shuffling stuff around. I've been thinking about this for a few days and thought it was time to get those thoughts down. Every author needs to maintain a … Continue reading Keep it professional
Hello! It's a Sunday afternoon. House is quiet, though not writing quite yet. Need to transport the youngest to hang out with a friend soon. As a writer, an author, I give a lot to my readers. I give a small piece of myself in every book I write. Each and every word, character mannerism, … Continue reading On the author/reader relationship
Hey! I know, I've let things slide for a few weeks. It was a combination of a lot of stuff. Vacation, real life, and a half dozen other things that had to be done before we got to relax. This past weekend, at the end of our vacation, I traveled to eastern WA. Partly to … Continue reading When a reunion goes good.
Hey! Yeah, it's Tuesday and not Monday. There's so many levels of chaos still at play in my life that I'm picking and choosing my battles in some ways. It should be calmer soon, I hope, and I'll be back on track. There's something I want to touch on today. It's important, and a lot … Continue reading The first impression really does matter!
Hey! It's Monday! I think I'm recovered from Friday...only time will tell. By the way, Billy Joel puts on a great live show. There's something a lot of new authors don't quite understand. Other authors are not your competition. There's a ton of readers out there. And they're not going to stick to your titles … Continue reading Lifting up authors instead of slamming them

I'm hard at work on a new story, something totally different than anything I've written to this point. And that's when it hit me yesterday. The same thing that hits almost every … Continue reading One word at a time

Morning, everyone! It's spring! Which, around here, means it's raining. Still. Just a little warmer than it was last week. People often imagine the life of a published author as one filled with red carpet invites, cavernous offices where we sit in a comfy chair. A maid or butler bringing us lunch on a silver … Continue reading The hard work of being an author
Okay, so last week was a strange one and I couldn't read a calendar. LOL. Everyone welcome author Ray Chilensky! 1. What’s the title of your latest release? Link?
