This past Monday, I finally took the time to create an additional "Blog" (Additional to CAPA's, that is). It's a Blog about 19th century women's fashions -- one of my specialities, thanks to many years experience working in Mystic Seaport's costuming shop. I'm trying to post something every day, beginning with those mysterious undergarments -- the thing that gives a 19th century woman that "hour-glass" figure.
However, as of this writing, it hasn't been discovered/visited by… Continue

After the interview for my new book " Leaving Home , Going Home , Returning Home " ( with Amazon.com) , I asked him if he wanted other new book authors from CAPA to contact him.

I have just returned from a month's trip to see my daughter and grandchildren in Singapore. We had a side visit to Bali, and five days sailing in Thailand. It was a wonderful trip, but I am worn out by the 32 hour plane trip. I will write some more about this, meanwhile enjoy the photos. Ames

According to a few books I have read on the subject of increasing book exposure and sales including in the book "The Step - By Step Guide to Self-Publishing for Profit" by C. Pinheiro , a great technique is to get book reviews. It can even be more cost efficient than paid advertisement. Especially if you are marketing your books / books with Amazon.com there is allot of support for book reviews and reviewers. I myself place a review on every book I read with Amazon.com. As I just published a… Continue

BE CAREFUL OF AGENTS, SOME ARE WOLVES IN AGENT CLOTHING.
Monday, August 24, 2009
A week has past and I am no longer frustrated, but I still have a warning for writers. Be very careful when you are looking for agents. I was “taken” only two (almost three) times by agents who directed me to editors who never finished the work and both agent and editor disappeared after getting their pay.
I had an agent “just north of New York City” with a huge mailroom so I had to mark… Continue

July post is a little late
I spent most of July having, what my surgeon referred to, as my first vacation in twenty years. But I can't kick because, in spite of the fact that I am still walking around still like an old lady, I found that I don't have cancer and that's a great thing.
So, I am back at work finishing up the Poodle book which will go on pre-sale in a couple of weeks. I have had fun… Continue

Continuing with our Summer Pot Luck Meetings, we met on July 20 on my back deck. We hit a milestone with the number of people present, 33. This number does include spouses, special friends, etc. We had 4 prospective members including a 9 year old girl who loves to write. Out guest speaker was none other than Brian Jud, who was accompanied by his lovely wife Nicki. I think Brian casts a spell on the audience, because nobody moved during his entire speech. As only Brian can, he captivated the… Continue

On August 2nd, at the Millrace Book store in Farmington, Ct., I will be giving a talk on Earth changes. The talk will focus upon the research, observations, and conclusions reached in writing Truth Never Changes: Earth Changes over a 30 year period. Commonly referred to ‘The End-of-Days’ or ‘End-Times’, the phenomenon know as 2012 is arguably the seminal event of the new millennium. It is equated with the beginning of the Age of Aquarius on 12/21/2012. Come and hear what to expect and what… Continue

A Busy Week - Full of Books
The week has been filled with lots of exciting adventures as well as the day to day routines. To begin with, I approved the printing of The Crafty Welsh Corgi Knits - Pembroke and Cardigan. I had a lot of fun creating this book and it is dedicated to my late friend John Lang who was a longtime obedience club member and who had a amazing bond with his Pembroke Welsh Corgis over the years.… Continue
