A new post with an amazing count---for me anyway.

I posted it on blog yesterday and waited to place it here because I posted about my black friday sale on another part of the forum. But I also include three rough excerpts from the NaNo novel I am working on.

Anyway I went to it this morning to check the stats. I had 27 or 37 views when I signed off last night. Not so bad for me. So I looked this morning and I thought so three more views overnight. Hey--wait a minute that says 70 not 40. Wow, that is a record for me. Now it's up to 80. Not sure if it's the black friday tag I put on it, the nanowrimo tag or a combination of those two and four others. Niiice, whatever the case. But at the same time. It would be nice if some of those would check out my Rod's Tales page and My Stories page. I think one person has on the second one. I have links to those two pages included in the post.

And even nicer if they bought my E-book if that is the reason they came by, if it was the excerpts a note or two would be nice.

Anyway, here is the Link to my post.

Came back to say that it's amazing. Last night the number was as 99 for a while so I thought it slowed down and I hoped for a couple overnight to take it over 100. But it jumped again, 122.

But that makes me wonder if peopler are actually reading the post since no one seems to be reacting in anyway except for a couple of plusses I assume are from Google+

Not sure how many are still paying attention to this space or how many are posting here but :

I have a new post dealing with my finishing NaNo--55,700 and some words--and a cyber Monday ad for my "Above My Pay GradeX2" e-novel.

The post explains it all.

I am having a Christmas sale on my E-novel "Above My Pay GradeX2".
It will be $3.99 until Dec 26.

It is Urban Fantasy set in Boulder CO. With "Ghosts", a griffin,a man bent on revenge who knows a weakness that even the twenty-something year old Main Character doesn't know about, and a mysterious bad guy out to kill and destroy for their own purposes.

And on my two story sets. If you buy the novel you can get one story set free details on the blog post. 


The link leads to a blog post that goes into more detail.

Amazing on two sides.


This post has 171 views and 16 plusses. For me that is a record--a large one.

But on the other side or the second amazing thing, none of them bought my book. I guess the 16 liked the idea, but not enough to go on to the next step.

Thank you for ordering it.

Sometimes I wonder if the writing will live up to the cover but so far two people like the writing. [Smile]

But the cover was done by Paul Potiki.

Hmm the link name change doesn't seem to be working. I tried three times but I guess it doesn't matter since the link is working.

Not a blog, but I did update my website by adding one more story to the pile.

June 30th is the fortieth anniversary of the beginning of my career as a writer.

Well, it feels good to post again.

It's slightly related to writing, at least. =D

Thanks, Louis! Writing is cathartic, no matter what it's about.

I scribbled down a few things about by road trip from Houston to Salinas! Read about it here, if you want. =)

Long time since I have done a blog post, a lot longer since I have done a writing update.

This is one. It includes more than I have said here at various times even though not quite everything.

I have a new post amazingly enough.

This one is the beginning of a Science Fiction short story serial.

Some of you will know of it but not all.

A good chance to see some of my writing and read an exciting tale.

Forgot to post the next two segments of my short story serial.

It's an exciting tale of two friends in danger from pirates. They are in a small spaceship with two secret cargos, evidently neither of the two sets of pirates received the memo that stated no one knew about either cargo.

I wrote this story at least five years ago before I knew there were rules to writing. So I have had a lot of work getting it in some semblance of correct writing. I should have rewritten it but didn't realize how old it was. It's not my best but still a worthy read I think. Obviously I still am missing something in learning how to write or more likely doing half a dozen things wrong but this story should be a lot easier to read and be enjoyable.


So here is part two


And part three


part four next week

I have placed two flash Urban Fantasy stories on my blog. The MC is an older gentleman and both are mostly non-violent. I posted them a few days ago so please pardon the first line of my greeting. The greeting explains why I wrote them.
