Please vote for my blog on

Dear readers,

To those I’ve interviewed here – and everyone else reading – I’d like to request that you please vote my blog for the Independent Book Blogger Awards on  The link is here.

If you are not already a member of Goodreads, you have to register, but this takes mere seconds and would be a great help to me.  The link to register is here (after which you can vote at the above link).

This would be the first award for my blog if I win.  And because you’ve been featured on the site, it would add prestige to your interview and possibly help drive traffic and sales.  Just recently I was informed by an author that her interview on my site resulted in a book club purchasing 16 books from her!  So I know the blog is having a real effect.

Please vote for me, and tell your friends and contacts as well.  I sincerely appreciate your support.

Merry Christmas! Back early next week

Merry Christmas everyone!  I’m taking a few days off from blogging but will have a new post early next week.  After that I’ll be taking a little more time off around New Year’s.  And remember the real reason for the season, the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Custom URL for Amazon Author Page

For those of you who have your books listed on Amazon, Kim Wolterman informed me you can designate a URL for your Author Page.  Here are the details from Kim:

Go to Amazon Author Central and click on Author Pages, and then log in.  You should see your page listing Biography, Blogs and Events on the left hand side and then Author Page URL, Photos, Videos and Twitter on the right.  Click on Author Page URL and it will show you if the URL with your name is available.  If so, all you have to do is accept it.  Takes about 30 minutes for the new URL to show up.

The link will redirect to another url, but it’s a neater, more memorable way to post your page and get your information out there.  My link – – is now live.  Thanks for the tip, Kim!

Love Train – available now on!

I’m pleased to announce that my first book, Love Train, is now available for purchase on!  The link is here:

The book’s description is as follows:

When he boarded the 10:45 train, Vic Steelbrass had just one mission: learn PowerPoint by the time he reached New York. But when Anastasia Romanov walked into his life, fate handed him a different mission. Suddenly, he has to seduce a beautiful Russian, foil a madman’s bomb plot, AND learn PowerPoint. With countless – or at least more than a few – lives on the line, Steelbrass must prove love is worth believing in…and kill a whole lot of bad guys in the process. He woke that morning as just your average, ex-millionaire, alligator-wrestling, skydiving businessman. But his life would be forever changed when he bought a ticket on…the LOVE TRAIN!
