...And I think you will too once you give it a try. Not sure what 'Immersion Reading' is? Simple. According to Audible, it's the ability to "read a Kindle eBook and listen to its professionally narrated Audible companion Audiobook – all at the same time. Not only that, but you get the benefit of real-time highlighting." Not only does it increase comprehension and overall retention of content, but it's also FUN! You can really get into [...]

I've recently created a new writing game that goes like this: To write 100 or more blog posts in a timely fashion while writing as well as I can as a way to express myself as a visionary author while also sharing my books novels and stories with the world. Let me be honest. This is my experiment in creating marketing and promotion as an expression of my true self. Each post will focus on visionary [...]
While I'm in the early stage of writing the rough draft of Crash, a prequel to the FreeForm series, there's still time for your input that will help me finish the story. What would you like to see included? What have you wondered about the main characters, including: Sluneg (the alien), Homlin (the alien in human form and the founder of Biogentrix, Pat Vogt, the BIUFO agent who discovers the alien, and Dr. Allan Pritchard, the [...]
Some ideas pop into my head and pour out all at once. Others marinate in some part of my unconscious for months or even years. That was the case for Goldcraft. I admired the shop for years, well before the idea of writing the first volume of Fantastic Fables of Foster Flat came about. Outside Goldcraft Inside Goldcraft As you no doubt can tell from the photos, the Goldcraft shop is chocked full of possibilities for [...]
My family and I reclaimed a Christmas tradition recently when we visited Grove Park Inn, an incredible hotel (and so much more) in nearby Asheville, NC. Grove Park is a great place to visit anytime of the year but especially around Christmas time because of the annual Gingerbread competition. Below are some of my favorite entries from this year...and yes, every entrant is made of completely eatable ingredients. Asheville Skyline from Grove Park Inn What's a [...]
I grew up watching The Twilight Zone on television and reading many of Ray Bradbury's books that were often a compilation of interconnected short stories. So, I guess it's not that big of a surprise that as an adult I might want to write stories inspired by that amazing show and those books. Thus, Fantastic Fables of Foster Flat was born, first as an anthology of "suspenseful tales with a twist" and soon to be released [...]
A few weeks ago, my lovely wife (who's as geeky as me when it comes to stuff about space) and I drove over six long hours to see the Green Banks Observatory. Oh, and we brought along Argos for his first long-distance trip. He did great. In many ways, he did better than his two owners who needed frequent rest stops to stretch our stiff limbs. You see, Green Banks houses some of the world's largest [...]
I received such great input and suggestions from my last "3 Questions" survey that I just had to ask again. This time just answer two questions to receive access to a preview of my work-in-progress, Rabble, book two of the Cosmic Conspiracy series.
As One of My Amazing Readers, I Value Your Opinion This little 'quiz' has 3 simple questions, and you can't get them wrong. Just take a moment to consider each one then respond honestly. Thanks for playing. I look forward to sending you a copy of Practical Health, a dark and prophetic tale with a glimmer of hope at the end.
