I haven't posted here in waaay too long. I've been busy with the indie publishing flail. I've decided to self publish my book A Sign in Blood (later this year sometime ) and I've been voraciously reading.
So, what's you opinion on self-publishing, ebooks and Smashwords? Oh, come on! You know you have one. I think all writers have got to be asking themselves these questions right now. So have you considered self-publishing? Why or why not?
Well... I would love some reviews of my novel. If I can't get feedback from strangers, how can I improve?
This got me thinking (as I emailed a smashwords coupon to every fantasy reviewer I could find), why don't I review? It's only fair that I help out others the way random bloggers are going to help me by going through my work...
Anyway, added a blog to my website with my first review. Will see how it goes
What needs love?
The question started from the fool question in a TV show, 'Does a fish feel pain?' Some people said 'Yes, of course'. Some people said 'Maybe' or 'No'. Lots of people voted 'Yes' on this question. If you vote on 'Yes', you got it. It's easy one. What about a plant? Does a flower in your backyard feel pain? Let's go a little further on this question. Does water you drink feel pain? It sounds very strange. You may say 'what are you talking about?' and leave this page.

Never has there been a good war or a bad peace.
~ Benjamin Franklin
War is delightful to those who have had no experience of it.
~ Desiderius Erasmus
How many of the politicians who voted for the wars served military service in the battle fields? If you know the answer, you will agree with this quote.
Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.
~ Mahatma Gandhi

The teaser trailer for LOLA RAY can be viewed on YOU TUBE :lola ray extended trailer.
"WHO IS LOLA RAY" ?
This question will be answered when the movie version of the comic book LOLA RAY written by Joshua Brownstein will be released in the early 2012.
LITTLE STUDIO FILMS has optioned the screenplay rights of the comic book franchise series LOLA RAY, written by Joshua Brownstein and illustrated by Italian artists Damiano Pellicano and Riccardo Bocuzzi.
The screenplay of the first book is written by LITTLE STUDIO FILMS clients
Matt, the author of Jak Phoenix, liked the other sketches so well, he commissioned several more. Here are two of the more interestingly looking characters who, unfortunately, have very little to do in the book.
These were drawn with a crowquill pen that I haven't used in a long while (I've been favoring the brush of late). I colored them in Corel Painter X, the greatest graphics program I have yet used.
Starting a series of new blogs on my site. The first is about the heroes of Shadow's Son. http://jonsprunk.blogspot.com/
The fourth story in the series is up on the Golden Visions site now. same link: http://www.goldenvisionsmagazine.biz/AlienHunter.html They are just adding each story at the bottom as we go.
Originally I thought the series would only be somewhere between 3-6 stories but they seem happy to let it go for longer.
If you're tuning in regularly (why, god Why? Why do you torture yourself thus and 'fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way'?) you know it's been a hectic few months. And while I finished a few books, I added more than I finished (although some of them I'd started reading months and months ago and only now am remembering I am "reading" them. Yeah, right.
I did manage to finish a few books this month, although it's looking more and more likely

Well... part of my book launch, a young girl bought a copy. Well, she started on Monday, and finished it this morning! She was almost late to school because her mother was trying to get her out of the house - but she only had 20 pages to go and just had to read it. How awesome is that! Makes me feel all warm inside
A fellow indie author asked me to do a few sketches of characters in his novel, Jak Phoenix. It's an old fashioned space opera romp. I just thought I'd share here for anyone interested.
Well, I finally signed up for Facebook! It was easier than I expected, but still a bit overwhelming. You can find my page here, if you're so inclined.
I like that I can stream my blog posts there, it makes things a whole lot simpler. It was an interesting diversion, but I'd better get back to the writing.
