I am the author of the Henry Wood Detective series. The first book is available on Kindle, Nook, and in Print. Book two is in the editing phase, book 3 is waiting patiently, and book for is being written with reckless abandon.
@Juliabarrett I have to tell you, I loved your response. My parents and I got a big chuckle out of it. "No." that is just straight to the point and honest. I imagine it being said with a long "Ahhhh....no."

@Erin F. It is okay, as I've decided to go a different route. See the next two blog posts for examples.

Keep fighting the good fight. Don't let those entitled, lazy, no talent bastards, wear you down. Sue them. Sue them twice! Take the money and hire someone to beat them in an alley, and then work hard to make more money to destroy the lives of their family, friends, and pets.Now normally, you'd think I was being over the top and trying to get a chuckle, because that's how I write, but in this instance I was being literal. Stealing is wrong. It needs to be punished in such a way that those who think it is fine to cheat and steal think twice. So, would it seem extreme to take a baseball bat and cave in the thief's innocent child's head, yes, but I say do it anyway. These people shouldn't be allowed to reproduce.

@New England Multimedia I'm the same way, though I tend to cap my reading pile at six. There are times I zip through a book just to open up a spot so I can buy another one. Books are awesome!

@RobTorres Thanks for coming on over from G+. I agree, feedback is great.
One of the reasons I like writing my novels here on my blog, is people like Stephanie, Julia, Tom & Betsy, who commented below, are great about giving comments as the story unfolds. It helps a bunch.

Good for Disney. They had an idea, which turned out to be a bad one, and were smart enough to do an about face. Hopefully, they will do the same with Meridia. I like the one with the bow, best!

@StephanieBerget I'm glad you're enjoying the updates. I love data and talking about how I'm doing. for good or bad. It is nice to know at least one reader besides Mom and Dad are interested, too.

@Juliabarrett I sort of suspected it might not yield any sales (actually, I did get one sale shortly before midnight), but since Amazon is cracking down on the number of "free" books sites are allowed (suggested) they put up, I'm wondering if it will change the dynamic. Will people, with fewer Free books (that they are aware of), shift to the 99 cent?This first test says no, but I'm a former data analyst. I'll probably give a few other sites a try and see if any of them have better results. As I said, there could be many reasons for the lack of success at this particular site.
If I find something that works, you can bet I'll let everyone know.

I often write on my desktop, but it doesn't bring me the joy I get from writing on my blue tooth keyboard and my iPad. I love the feel and especially enjoy using it at a diner that serves bacon!
Sometimes I feel like writing with a pencil. It is slow and I don't do it often, but sometimes I need an easier pace.

@BetsyKCross I don't think so. It may be a problem with feedburner. I'm not sure.

@tomstronach To be honest, I'm not a fan of videos on blogs either. I've seen some really awful book trailers, too. Still, I wonder if it would help spread the word. I just don't know the answer, but I appreciate your chiming in.
I hope your health starts improving. Do what the doctors tell you and think lots of good thoughts. :-)

@BetsyKCross Hiring an editor is expensive. It is worth it though, not just for getting a better product, but for all that I learn along the way.
