First Radio Interview

So while most people were out drinking and having a hard time determining the actual mileage on their starship, I was getting interviewed by the Power of Perception Radio Network. Earlier in December, Scott Golden contacted me on Twitter to see if I would like to be on his program.

Obviously, I said yes and sent him a quick bio and planned to do it on New Year’s Eve. And thus, last night we talked.

Below is the link to the interview where you can find some interesting background on all my books. Also, you can hear about the exciting things I have planned for my cat and llama’s Instagram accounts in 2016. Enjoy!

“To Become the Collector” Available NOW!!

To Become the Collector
Book 2 of the Collector Series

“To Become the Collector” continues the story from last year’s hit, “To Find the Collector.” In book two of the Collector series, Cyris meets new humans, all with special powers. None are as mysterious, and gruff, as the one they call Boss. The Boss holds a power which Cyris has never dreamed of having. But the Boss has other plans than just giving his special gift to the Mover. The request the Boss puts forth to Cyris would cure him of the pain he feels due to the loss of the love of his life, Tabytha. Cyris dreams of their moments together, the love they shared, the horror of her death. His pain fuels his alcoholic spells when he makes rash decisions, like bestowing the ability to speak on a dog.

And it all leads to an ending that opens more possibilities than he ever knew.

New copy, new cover, new push

To Find the Collector-
To Find the Collector

The adage that if you build it they will come did not take into account that a thousand other people were building it every day and waiting for them to come. Well, I built it, and unless it was free to come, not one came payingly.

That’s fine. That’s a lesson learned. You got to find out what works and what doesn’t and do something different. Well, me doing a cover is the first thing that was wrong. I like to say that if I made a button for a website, it would look like a developer made a button. If my wife made a button, it would look good. Well, she made a cover for my book and it looks awesome.

Now the rest is on me. Let’s go!

To Find the Collector 2 day Sales Results

Well, I gave away 25 copies of my first micro-novel “To Find the Collector“. So that is the starting point. As I understand it, the hope now is one or two of the people who got a copy, read it and write a review for it. Not only is critique good for the future readers but also immensely important to the author, – me.

I have the second part of the story written but need to edit it and get it out there. My hope would be to get it out sooner than later. When I launch “To Become the Collector”, I’ll post that book to Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Smashwords.. anywhere I frikin can. And then I’ll run the free promotion again for “To Find the Collector” trying to push the free book to lead into getting buys from the second book.

But I need reviews. I need to know what people think of it, and I feel a little like Microsoft shipping Windows. Windows usually has a couple thousand bugs with it when it ships. If it didn’t, it would never ship. Well, my first book has bugs in it. I’m just not sure I know what they are. Reviews will be helpful in finding them.

Let’s hope I get a bunch and they are more than “It’s great!” or “It sucks.”

To Find the Collector: Collector Series Book 1

Ok, so I started this book in 2007 and had the bulk of it written for the last 3 years. But, I’ve never felt comfortable enough to publish and share it. I’m not sure why, so I decided what the hell. Let the book be read.

To Find the Collector by croyus

The story is solid with some great twists. There is good character development and some fantastic parts that all blend into an interesting universe. Oh, and the romance…

I have the second book, ‘To Become the Collector’ almost edited and ready to go. It should be out the first quarter of 2015.

But until then, I would highly recommend enjoying the first book, ‘To Find the Collector.’ It’s a great read. I should know; I’ve been reading it for the last 7 years.

Free Crappy Poetry Sample

Since my ebook is flying off the shelf, I figured I would share with the few people who have not purchased it, what they are missing. Here is an epic poem to wet your taste buds..

Rorschach
Ink blots are like clouds
What I see isn’t necessarily what u see
A bunny
A dog
A pile of poo
Skid marks provide a new media
New content daily
New canvas generally daily as well
Sometimes more
Sometimes it’s a streaming media
Toilet paper could display much content to gaze at and wonder what is there
Creativity that could impress your friends,
Amaze your love ones,
Post to Facebook to remember the vision you had.
A vision of a finger poking thru would be cool,
As long as not true
A vision of an epic struggle between good and corn would be epic
So the next time you sit on the toilet
Check out your skid mark
Check out your toilet paper canvas
Imagine what you could learn about yourself from what your mind could see
Is it sick to find art in shit?
Or just sick to talk about finding art in shit?

Warming Up

So I’m going to try something. I want to write. I have lots of ideas wallowing around in my brain which I think would be cool to get down on paper… er, in 1’s and 0’s.

Anyway, when you play soccer, it’s always good to warm up. Whether it is stretching in a circle like my team did when I was a kid, to the Brazilian warm up where you sing and dance like X’s team does.

So when I write, I need to warm up. Thus, I am hopeful to use this blog to warm up. See, I just did it. Now to write. Or revise. Or something other than staring at stupid people on the web.
