My Heart is a Drummer Trailer

A friend of mine in the U.K. was incredibly kind and offered to produce a book trailer for My Heart is a Drummer. I think he did a beautiful job; it really communicates the tone of the book, I think. And not only did he conceive and write the script, in addition to creating the entire thing in his computer– yes, it’s all computer-generated graphics– but he composed and performed the soundtrack, too. Besides all this, he’s a working screenwriter and novelist. Talk about a one man band!

I‘d love to hear what you think, so please feel free to post comments here and/or on my Facebook page or YouTube.

A New Interview

My latest inteview has just posted on author Gail Baugniet’s blog. We discuss the parallels between screenwriting and novel writing, the origins of the story, and Gail’s very personal connection with Yolanda Polanski.

I would love to hear what you think, so please feel free to take a look and comment on Gail’s blog and/or this blog, too!

I hope I didn’t embarrass myself too badly…

I’m ready for my close-up

Just a short post to share my very good fortune at being interviewed by Anne Michaud on her blog.


Anne’s a great horror writer who’s been published numerous times, most recently being nominated for a Bram Stoker Award.

She and I discussed Yolanda Polanski and the Bus to Sheboygan this time, and next time, we’ll be talking about my first book, My Heart is a Drummer. It was a lot of fun!

Finally, a reason to live

I can’t help myself; I’ve got to blog this one. Finally,  I’ve had a real, actual reader read one of my novels, and I’m overjoyed.

You know what I mean by a “real reader,” don’t you? Well, I’ve had some very generous friends and family members read my novels, but up until Friday, no one has read my stuff that didn’t do it for my sake. For the first time, someone read my book without any guilt involved!

Maybe you novelists out there know what I mean? Maybe (even more so) you self-publishers out there really know what I mean? As novelists, we struggle for months and years to get our work right, but as self-publishers, we invest even more of our time and money doing something that probably isn’t very much fun at all for the majority of us. Almost at the end of my rope, I’ve lately been wondering if I should’ve even taken up all of this vital, writing time to mess around with self-publishing.

Then a real reader actually read what I hoped and prayed real readers would read. Now, I’m living in a dream.

On top of that, she knows the town that I set my second novel in and feels that my depiction wasn’t too far off the mark. That had been a worry of mine, as I’ve never actually set foot in the place. You can read her review of Yolanda Polanski and the Bus to Sheboygan at:
