Taking a look at this blog, you can easily see that I haven’t posted much. Interviews after some early postings, that’s pretty much all I’ve done here. I even considered shutting the blog down. Oh, it isn’t that I don’t have much to say. Nope. I actually have a lot to talk about. Hell, I’ve got some things to yell about. Seeing as how I’m still on my first cup of coffee, and it is Monday morning, I don’t want to start my week with yelling.
In any case, good fortune has come my way in various forms. I’ll tell you about 18 of them another time.
In the meantime, here’s what’s new with me;
I received some writing invitations over the past few weeks. Yep. Somebody likes the stories I tell.
What’s that? … You don’t know about the invitations? Well now, I guess I need to tell you a little bit about that.
See, there’s this Senior Publicist for Ring of Fire Books, Michelle Anderson-Picarella. She came up with the idea for Seven Deadly Sins and invited … you guessed it … seven writers to participate in the anthology. Well, to make a long story short; the book was completed, it’s doing really great, and Michelle sent out some more invitations. How bout’ I got lucky again and received two additional invites; one for Ring of Fire’s inaugural summer anthology, and another for 7DS. If you don’t know how lucrative those invitations are, don’t just take my word for it; check with Tymothy Longoria, or any of the writer’s from the Seven Deadly Sins anthology.
2012 is going to be a hot year for many writers, and Ring of Fire Books is fast becoming the label of choice. That’s where I’m at.
Now, when I thought about dumping this blog, I came across some very good information that made me change my mind completely. It’ll probably help you, too. Check it out >> http://www.blogtalkradio.com/johnrakestraw/2012/05/06/the-words-are-the-thing-anyone-got-some-good-ones
You didn’t know? How bout’ that?
I’m a talk-show co-host, baby! Yeah! It’s some brand new shi … uh … stuff that I’m having a blast with!
Damn. Now I’m yelling n’stuff.
So, the whole deal about this post is that I’ll be continuing this blog. I guess that means I need to dress this puppy up with all sorts of pictures n’stuff, too.
Speaking of puppies, I definitely have to tell y’all about the Wolves. It appears that the Packs are going to start circling this summer. They’re coming from two different directions, too. Don’t worry, though. I’ll keep your head on a swivel so you won’t get your ass … er … butt bit.
