Sure, we all love having robots, but how hard is it to sleep with those glowing red eyes glaring at you from the dark? What if the solution was as simple as slipping our patented Robot Sleep Mask over your robot’s head?
That takes care of the glaring eyes, but you also wonder whether your robot’s wireless interface is being hijacked by your enemies. What if they send your robot instructions to wake you up late and you miss an important meeting? What if they program the robot to strangle you while you sleep?
You can sleep safe and sound, knowing the Robot Sleep Mask is coated with Cybershield, a break-though coating that prevents your robot from receiving malicious outside instructions and spam.
Why go through the hassle of powering down your robot every night when the solution is as easy as just slipping on a one-size-fits-most ROBOT SLEEP MASK? Now available in a wide variety of colors, including Charcoal (shown), Ecrue, Spring Mint, Autumn Russett, Quicksilver, Sunset Peach, Vivid Vermillion, and Brown.
Change … it’s inevitable.
What we do with it makes the difference.
Around every corner, we experience change. It could be as simple as a detour sign on your way to a destination or as complex as moving across the country.
Us writer types, well, sometimes we don’t handle change very well. We need our writing space, our coffee/tea, our M&M’s and whatever else gets us through our writing sessions. Most of us need our routines or we lose all productivity.
As with anything, we need to look at change with the right eye. Have you ever driven through vast forested areas and seen blocks of trees wiped out—looking like a patchwork pattern throughout the wilderness? Our first reaction is, “How can they do this to this beautiful area?” Continue reading “Change … Embrace It”

In “Shattered Reality” we learn what shaped Brooklyn, the trials of an unhappy marriage and a deep abiding love that would not be denied. We meet a troubled, spiteful wife, who does not want to become an “ex”.
Will Brooklyn and Bo survive, or will all be lost to a bitter woman?
“You know what, Brook? You need to do something. Anything. I don’t give a shit what it is, but you need to do something. I can’t work all day and come home to these stupid problems every day. Brook, do something. Just do something!”
We made our way home in silence and when we got home, I went straight to bed without even washing off my makeup even though mascara covered my entire face.
The following day Gerard woke me up with kisses. That is how we worked things out. He would explode and then later feel bad and try to make up. For me nothing had been resolved, and all I could feel was cold. I shut down completely and by then Gerard was just too busy to notice. He was exhausted, but I didn’t feel I deserved to be talked to like that. I really tried to get it to work out well, but it didn’t.

“From the moment I started reading this book I knew I was going to like it. Little did I know by the end of the book I would fall in love with it.” – NarlyNut’s Book Lovers
You’ve written that first book. You’re so proud of it. Now you want to make sure your public hears about it. What can you do to get some exposure in the ‘real world’ as opposed to on-line via social media?
Let’s talk about two that worked for me; book signings and interviews on radio and TV.
I live in a relatively rural area, not a big city, but I think that this can work even in cities. When my first book came out I took some with me and travelled about to all the bookstores I could find within an hour’s drive. At each one I would gather all my courage and ask to speak to whoever was in charge about doing a book-signing. I soon learned that the person with the authority to make that decision is not always present. Lesson number one; call or e-mail ahead for an appointment with the owner or manager. It will save a lot of time and frustration. Also make sure you know the owner’s name and can address him/her by name when you meet. In a way, this is a job interview. Treat it like one.
