Thanks to all of my beloved studets, family and friends who came in support of the reading; and thanks, of course, to the fans! You ROCK!!!
Check out the new "and philosophy" link added to the "Links" page, featuring all the books in the Blackwell Series.
There's a YouTube interview for the Twilight book as well; the prblem is, the Skype recording wasn't clear apparently, so my answers to the questions asked by the Wiley interviewer come from different mouths than mine--which is weird. Other than the surreal feeling of seeing my words come out of someone else's mouth, it's cool to see that there is more publicity happening for the Blackwell Series books.
In other news, I will be speaking briefly at te Niagara County Community College New York College English Association Conference on Saturday, 10/24/09 and will be doing a book signing for the Twilight book that evening at the Amherst B&N from 6-8pm.
And...the Twilight book recently sold global rights for an audio book! That's right--we're going AUDIO! Listen to us in your car, n a train, in a plane...anywhere!

I've had the opportunity recently to have some major epiphanies, one of which is that we all set our own worth. My success is limited only by me, a pattern I hope to break very soon with the help of an agent I've been in touch with who is interested in my young adult novel. They say diversification is the best way to insure ou get a return on your investments; putting all your stock into only one option can seem counterintuitive. BUT, if you diversify your talents, stretching yourself so thin you can't even blow your nose, what kind of a return can you expect? Not much. SO, if you have a talent, nuture it. Stick with it. Don't let the world make you believe you "have to" do this or that or the other thing to "make it". Nurture your best talent; put all your energies into that one thing--you'll see, the return will be ten times that of any more diversified portfolio out there. Remember, I'm talking about talent, not economics. :)
Best wishes! More next week....
