As a rule, how do you divide your time between social networks to build audience and actually writing? Lately it's been easier to hang out here instead of find new content to write about, so I've been fortuitously "busy" online.

I think that one of the things that I can do to instantly improve my sales is to improve my blurb.  I would really appreciate it if anyone provided a little feedback on what I've had up.  How about a copy of the book in return?

Blurb:
Meek high school student Stanley finds himself in an ever shifting world of alliances, electronic surveillance and terrorists after the attacks of September 11th in the satirical world of American Insurgent. After the attacks he goes on to attend college where he is in the wrong place at the wrong time, earning the label "enemy combatant", starting a nation wide man hunt filled with concussions and coincidences! As an attempt to exonerate himself, he broadcasts his story to the world. 

Alternately funny, beautiful and shocking, American Insurgent, according to one review, will have you "contemplating where we are as a nation and as a people".

Looking for an intriguing political thriller with a unique narrator? Enjoy satire? American Insurgent will have you laughing and according to one reader, wondering about "one's place in the world".

American Insurgent is available in Sony, kobo, iBook, Smashword and nook market places for free!



Is anyone familiar with Smashwords? My novel is up on their summer/winter sale, but is tucked way in the back of the 75% off category. The books listed don't seem to be alpha by title or author.

Is there any way to bump my book closer to the top of the list? I've been considering offering my book for free, especially since it haven't sold any since April, sadly.

I try not to use my account here to simply sell my books, but now is a great time to get my first novel, American Insurgent from Smashwords for $1.25. You'll be supporting an independent self publisher and read something that will make you think.

From my reviews: "A thought provoking read that leaves you contemplating where we are as people and as a nation. The recurring themes of facing alienation and finding ones place in the world make the story identifiable, while allowing you to care for the aloof main character."

Check out AI while it is on sale today! Smashwords allows you to download the file in ANY format of your choosing for WHATEVER device you choose. 

Reading Salman Rushdie for the first time is like seeing through a window and seeing words the want I wanted to say them, only I didn't know how. #literaryjealousy

Sadly no surprise, but now there's the admissions from those in power...
How is this news? Wasn't this obvious?

"Of course it's about oil, we can't really deny that," said General John Abizaid in 2007, former head of U.S. Central Command and Military Operations in Iraq. Former Federal Reserve Chairman, Alan Greenspan agreed, writing in his memoir: "I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil." Then-Senator and now Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the same in 2007: "People say we're not fighting for oil. Of course we are."

See my thinking why I won't write a dystopian fantasy novel with a romantic twist.
