Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m a TV and Movie reviewer.
I’ll write lengthy posts, and those with words fewer.
I have published three books to date,
Three anthologies, for such is my fate.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Movie Reviews, TV Reviews, Course Reviews…The Best of ArticlesInRhyme 2019
This book is an anthology comprised
Of reviews from my website ArticlesInRhyme.
I chose the best from every month,
Or rather, those I thought were sublime.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
When I first designed my website,
I chose to write everything, not in prose,
But in poetry of differing styles,
So I’d stand out in the way that I chose.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I was an avid reader as a lad,
Reading Jules Verne, John Jakes, James Clavell…
…Mark Twain, and others, classic and modern,
And pulp fiction writers as well.
What are you working on now?
I have a few more books in mind,
Some of which need to be written.
One of them is Rambo-themed.
It’s a topic of which I’m smitten.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My current method, I’ll admit,
Is to locate websites and submit,
And in hopes that my brand name becomes a bit fitter,
I’ll even use Facebook, and also Twitter.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Forget the money at first, and write,
Even if you don’t make a dime.
Writing is fun. It channels the soul,
And makes for an interesting time.
The thing is to start,
Everything else is for naught.
Who will be able to read what you write
If none are the words you have got?
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
What’s next for you as a writer?
I’ll continue for now on this path
To see what next is to happen.
I’ll keep up with my website and occasional eBooks,
And, when I’m tired, I’ll try nappin’.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Big, thick history books that would take a long time to read.
