19th Century Man: An Interview with Author William Todd

A funny thing happened on the way to this interview… but a bit of background first. I met author William Todd on a sort of writers’ forum on Facebook. He was seeking reviews for Sherlock Holmes: and the Mystery of the Broken Window . Being a longtime fan of the sleuth, I was only too happy to oblige. Feel free to read my Turn the Page review.

Recharged and Ready

I’ve been writing about football for a long time now. Over the years, NFL players, coaches, owners, general managers and officials have done a lot of boneheaded things. So, in addition to all the tailgate type treats, I’ll take you on an entertaining and comical stroll down memory lane. Do you remember when former Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson broke his arm in a hapless attempt to save a pizza? And how about that time former Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Jeff Reed beat up a towel dispenser just because he couldn’t dry his hands? I’m only scratching the surface here. As you kick back with a delicious Brunch Burger, some Super Supreme Mucho Macho Nachos or a big bowl of Mexican Corn Dip, you can also have a laugh at the good natured expense of those who play the game we all love so much. I can promise you now the term butt fumble will come up at least once.

Thanksgiving is only a few short weeks away and that mean Santa will be doing his annual breaking and entering routine before we know it.

From now through Christmas Eve, A Shot at Redemption, my debut suspense novel, will be available on all e-book platforms for just $1.79

July Update: Nothing to See Here

And it appears James “Jimmy” McMillan III and I have something in common. We both tried to do something significant, resulting in two tiny blips on one big ass radar. Here’s the difference. Jimmy’s political aspirations are dead and buried. I, on the other hand, will continue to fight the good fight in the hopes that someday, somehow, someone will start giving a crap.

February Update: Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

When I first began researching how to become a successful independently published author, it immediately became clear that it really can’t be done. Okay, that’s not entirely true but most self published authors, heck, most authors in general fail to achieve commercial success. That was the case even before publishing became so accessible; and now that book publishing is only slightly more complicated than registering for a Netflix account, you can take the old failure rate and multiply it by a few million and that’s probably low balling it.
