Thanks to the late Fred Willard for the title of the post today.
So, What did happen? Well, it was my first attempt at scheduling a post since I was going to be away on Friday. Long story short, it didn’t work. But left to it’s own volition, it would have posted today at 6:30 PM GMT…
From my blog this week:
Thursday Thoughts: Animal Thoughts – Woof woof.
Weird Wednesday: Hiatus – Need to give the cartooning brain a rest.
Tuesday Tirade: Kinda… – Fire in the hole.
Open Book Blog Hop: Sept 6 – I wrote something for this, but I can’t remember what. (You can look it up. I know….but I don’t wanna.)
Music Monday: Song Titles – Music quiz?
From the blogs of other’s:
Smorgasbord Afternoon Video Rewind – Favourites revisited – Getting out of bed is so hard to do… – Dogs are smarter that we think.
Here is Free Book Friday!
I hope you enjoyed last week’s interview. If you missed it: Free Book Friday: In Conversation With Nicole Pierman (and new promos!)
I hope to do more in conjunction with the different promotions I am involved with.
There are a few more new ones, but you can see them here: Discover New Authors and Free Books as I have decluttered the page of all expired links (there were a few…)
That’s it for this week!
The story behind Free Book Friday:
I’ve met many authors and readers during my time marketing, cross-promoting, and blogging. I think writers have a responsibility to inform readers about all the indie authors out there in the very crowded world of book publishing. You can’t do it alone, and why would you when you have a supportive group available?
Readers don’t just read one author – they stick with their favorite genres. There lies the power in cross-promotion. If one of my readers buys a book from an author I promote, then chances are there will be a reciprocal effect, or so is the hope. Do I want to boost sales? Of course I do. Do I want to boost other’s sales? Why not. It’s called karma.

His newest publications are the novella, The View from Here, which is a continuation of one of his short stories, and a new collection of poetry titled, A Wonder of Words.
