One of the more significant people who encouraged me to write was my 12th-grade English teacher, Mrs. Barmasse. She taught Advanced English at my alma mater, Lewiston-Porter High School, which was accepted in lieu of Freshman English at Syracuse University (those were the days before AP classes). They don’t let just anybody teach those kind of classes, so you know Mrs. B was the cream of the crop. Continue reading “A Tribute to My Teacher”
Just a quick post to let you all know I just sent out the review copies of my new Sci-Fi novel, Star Riders, to thirteen volunteer Beta Readers. If you still want to participate, be sure to send me an email and let me know if you want PDF or Kindle format.

Do you want to get a free copy of my new Sci-Fi novel, Star Riders, to read and review? Now’s the time to let me know by email.

Since I’m getting close to having a version of my novel Star Riders ready for Beta-readers, I’ve decided to give you all a sneak peak of the prologue, as well as the “blurb” that describes the whole book.
The rewrite is coming along right on schedule, which means it should be ready for Beta readers on February 1. If you want to be one of them, and get to read a pre-release e-version of Star Riders, just let me know by hitting the “Follow” button on my blog.
In my last post, I said that I was crunching along on the rewrite, and anticipating my first bits of reader feedback. I actually only received one of those three anticipated feedbacks, the one from my weekly Writers’ Group. I had asked them to read my prologue and the first chapter, and they really gave me some great feedback. Continue reading “Novel Status Update – January 8”
Sorry I haven’t posted anything on here in several weeks; I had planned to do at least one blog post per week. I’ve been busy on the rewrite, which is close to halfway finished. I’m planning on getting it ready for Beta readers right after New Year’s, and then after I incorporate their feedback, I’ll send it to a professional editor to help me get it ready for Amazon.
