Highlight Of My Writing "Career"!

I received today from the Library of Congress, officially acknowledging my poetry book! It is somewhat exciting to know that I am recognized, as it were, as a published author! See here;
Yippee for me!


I had the opportunity to read a zombie story by someone else, and was asked to give a review and post a link to the story. It is called, "My Zombie Body" by Mario Lurig. You can purchase a digital copy from for $2.99, half of which is donated to Child's Play Charity, which provides games, toys, books, and other entertainment for children worldwide to enjoy while they are in the hospital. A more noble cause I cannot imagine. So, here we go:

Jarad was just a normal guy, going to work day by day, ineffectually mingling with coworkers, and just as ineffectually flirting with the office cutie. Stories of a contagion began being broadcasted on news channels, but were readily disregarded by the masses. Until there was an evacuation called for.
The story follows Jarad through various situations and flashbacks. As his body makes the journey ever westward, his mind is still in operating order. He tries to regain control of his renegade physical being while coming to terms with the horrors his body has committed.
An entertaining look at the Zombie genre, and definitely a unique perspective on the changes and how they are perceived by the infected. I would absolutely recommend giving this story a read, and the price can't be beat!

Still Trying

So, I am still trying to build my "reputation" via Facebook, Blogging, Google... Anything I can find to get people to check out my work and hopefully tell me they want more. I think if enough comments come in saying my work is liked, I will have ammunition when I try to get published so I won't have to go through the self publishing route too much more. I would like to not have to at all, but becoming known is a long, drawn out process. Hopefully, some one will like it so much, they recommend me to an influential enough person who can help me "get a foot in the door" as it were.

Anyway, I will check on things over the next few days... (fingers crossed)

New Facebook page

My new Facebook Author page can be found HERE

I have been told that an author should have media pages in which to "advertise" themselves. I am still not sure what will come of it, but have produced a new page on Facebook, and I have this blog. As to how to get the word out that I'm alive and writing stuff that lots of people would enjoy... *shrugs*

So, I will ask, if anyone other than myself is reading this, PLEASE recommend to your friends and acquaintances my work, my webpage at this link or my blog here. Just help me get around to people I don't know and see if they like what I write. I would be ever so grateful!
