Wake up Celebrity Author Contest

I've entered the Wake Up Celebrity author contest... My direct link is

Please feel free to go there and cast your vote and tell all your friends about it and that they should vote too. Its a nice contest for newer authors like myself as it helps with exposure and should I win it would be some great promotional help for the book. Please cast your vote and of course vote on others if you wish as well and please do encourage your friends and family to do the same. I know I'd really appreciate it and if you vote for anyone else as well I am sure they would appreciate it. (though more votes for me please lol).

Thanks a ton.

Exciting times

Sorry I've not blogged as much as I'd like to. Been very busy with many exciting things going on. I've been working on my writing as well as my day job and some art work at deviant art ( I've also been excited about all the new books being released by my publisher Dreamz-Work Productions, LLC ( I've been working hard trying to help promote other people's books as well as my own through the many avenues I can.

Recent titles from Dreamz-Work that have excited me are Legacy of the Cross and Making Kitchen Medicines, Both of them look great and I am sure i'm going to enjoy them. Also I am looking forward to a book called Taking 1960 by Rosa Sophia which will be released August 13th. Taking 1960 is a great Paranormal Mystery.

Along with all of this work, reading and playing with art I've been planning my vacation. Over the first two weeks of June I'll be taking a road trip to Missouri, Tennessee, Maryland, Pennsylvania, perhaps Delaware and points between for two weeks. It should be an interesting trip. Also looking at a possibly trip in August to Florida for the Release of Taking 1960 . Its been a blast being an author and also working for the publisher. Sales of my books are still slow but then again as I'm still getting my name out there its not overly surprising. I am trying to get more attention over to my main author site and also trying to increase my following on Facebook, Twitter, and of course my blogs. You'll notice that this post is on both of my blogs because it really does fit in with both.

I do hope to blog more regularly over the next few weeks and even continue my quote of the week posts. I've just been so overly busy its interesting when live comes at you that quickly. It seems as soon as I get up in the morning the day flies by and its bed time. Hopefully it will pass a little slower when I am on vacation and I'll be able to give a few extra blog posts then as I'll have the computer with me. I'm also trying to get a book signing or two set up though not much luck so far. Just a couple weeks to go before I am off on my little adventure and will be taking lots of pictures.

Thanks to those of you who read this blog and I hope to keep posting and that at least some of the posts will be interesting.

Now as I've missed a few weeks at my duirsforest blog for the quote of the week I'll conclude this post with a few nice wise quotes here.

"Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue." -Buddha

"Ignorance has always been the weapon of tyrants; enlightenment the salvation of the free." -Bill Richardson

"Not creating delusions is enlightenment."-Bodhidharma

"Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity." -Buddha

"The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is." -Winston Churchill

"There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self." -Benjamin Franklin

IMPORTANT PRIVACY INFO you may want to know

ATTENTION EVERYONE---There's a site called and it's an online phone book that has pictures that you have posted on facebook, home phone number, credit score, profession, home value, income , # of children, profession, age, Remove yourself by the Privacy button on the bottom right on their website. I checked it out and just removed my listing. SHARE THIS!!! CUT, PASTE AND REPOST (this was cut and pasted from facebook)

I did check out the site. It had general phone book information along with astrological sign, an age estimate and other info for free and offered credit reports, wealth estimates and much more if you paid for their service and it is not overly cost prohibitive. As the post says you can remove yourself.. I have though you must find yourself first if you exist there. (though I will say they were generous with their estimate of my house value and if anyone wants to pay it (low estimate was 3 times the value and high was 4... I'll take it!

I understand we live in this information age but we need to keep some things private.
