Sorry, everyone, that I’ve been out of it the past week.
Danah and I lost our home internet connection after our modem died, so we ordered the replacement item, only to realize it was the wrong item. So, we ordered another replacement item, which should arrive today. Here’s hoping it works. And let me tell you, it’s just delightful dealing with AT&T…
Anyway, I’ve missed reading everyone’s blog posts and commenting to my friends the past week. And I’ve found out that contrary to the typical belief that the Internet makes us less productive, in my case that’s completely false. I’m far more productive when I’m not pissed off and frustrated that I can’t get online. And for me, when I can’t get online to write blog posts and read about other author’s journeys, there’s just no motivation to write or handle my own business… So, I’ve done very little writing the past week, which in itself only brings my attitude lower.
I guess this means I feed off others, so I can’t wait to catch up with you all online soon.
Say a prayer to the Internet gods for me, that it might work tonight, and that it be good and not be like the Tree of Knowledge… Or, something like that…

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.
P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. I’m excited to say that Little Man, and the Dixon County War has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here). My second novel, Sold Out, has also done well, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.
