Sorry, I type too fast for the computer, and my words get erased often.

I'm not pointing fingers, Janik, but you know what I mean.

Well, I don't know what other poets are lurking, but I was privileged to have three works in KINDRED: "Kehei Beach," "Another Night" and "Lenin's Tomb." Of the three, the most recent is "Kehei Beach." This one feels destined for greatness. Does anyone have a copy of the anthology?

Nicholas - you may have mistaken the typical delays in "answering" a post on a realtime text chat for unfriendliness, but I assure you this is a safe and friendly place to hang out!  So what's up for you?

Nothing I want to share. Hanging by thread, fighting suicide every day, disappointed in how hateful of an experience you publishing my content is... Anyway, I don't want to talk to any of you. I was just trying to get social practice in a positive way, and I see that is going to fail. Enjoy doing whatever you do here. Peace.

Here is another set of general marketing tips :

1. Investigate your target market, those readers who you think would read your work.
2. Cultivate your audience by providing extra information or advice.
3. Collaborate with influencers. For instance if you are writing a Western and live in Wyoming track down some local writers and get some advice on how to make your western be more authentic.
4. Ask yourself, what can I provide to turn browsers to turn them into buyers.
5. Whenever possible use automated responding programs.
6. Lastly, it easiest to sell your book at local community events when you can see prospective buyers face to face.

Oh, and Dan, I absolutely love The Turtle Dances idea, knowing that you are way into the turtles of Hawaii and other endangered animals... I fear my proposed manuscript is a bit different in nature than your beautiful kids' books! Then again, I've found that there is ample room for all POV's at Savant Books & Publications!  Hugs, R Page.

Aloha everyone. I had a little time in between kiddo activities and wanted to drop in for a bit.

I've been surprised at how prophetic parts of my novel with A. G. Hayes, QUANTUM DEATH (Savant 2016) are proving, especially the part about North Korea and it's cyberwarfare capabilities. I haven't seen their hacking spill over to criminal business as yet, but I fear it's only a matter of time (and, of course, the extent of their perceived need of money).

My envisioning of Russia's role, aside from President Putin and his inner circle of military/industrial oligarchs, is true to my experiences when visiting there, both before and after perestroika and glasnost. 

Nicholas - I've read STORYTELLER (Savant 2017) and it's a great work. You seem to have captured an epic visionary tale that wrapped within, gives a strong message to readers. Do you have a next work in mind?

Thank you. No. I've lost all interest in reading and writing after experiencing what the publishing industry was like. It's a waste of time.

Dan, what do you think of the plot of Truth hating bunny rabbits? Isn't that interesting?

ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK by Keith R. Rees - Excerpt #1 (This Excerpt is Family Rated)

Chapter 1 – The Terminal
He had just awakened from what seemed like several hours of sleep. He stretched his toes
in his shoes and tried his best to stretch his arms without disturbing the person sitting next to
him. As he tried to shake the sleep from his eyes, he slowly noticed his surroundings. The seats
in front of him were much further away than normal. He tried to remember if he had been moved
up to first class or business class, but he could not. Lots of leg room, he thought to himself. Very
nice! Glancing over at his seat companion, he could tell that the enormous man was happy about
the ample leg room as well. He was a tremendous man with dark skin and stared straight ahead
as if he were in a trance. Miles straightened in his seat and tried not to stare at him. I'd hate to
tick this guy off, he thought to himself. He gazed around the cabin but no one was standing and
he did not see any flight attendants. He could tell the plane was descending so he assumed they
would be landing shortly. What he did notice was the unusual cabin of the aircraft. The length
and the width were abundantly large. Larger than any plane he had ever been on before. Wow! he
thought. This must be one of those fancy new ones…

Miles Devereaux, an ordinary, working class, family man, is thrust sixty years into the dazzling
futuristic world of 2065 Bangkok, and into a life-and-death game of chess where the players and
pieces' fates depend on each player's acumen. Requiring Miles to match wits and physical skills
with an array of opponents while faced with solving the mystery of his time travel and how to
return to his own time, ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK is a riveting adventure set in what might
very well be our own future.

I enjoyed One Night in Bangkok as well. I believe it is the first work in a series of time travel novels.
Have you started work on the sequels?
