Thank You. It’s Not Just For Breakfast Anymore.

Have you thanked a soldier lately? Yes? Yeah, most of us have fallen into an appropriate habit of doing that (whereas we should have been doing it all along). I thanked a Sheriff’s Deputy the other day for his service. I realized as I was talking to him (after having called the police for the […]


All For One, One For All: Not Just A Cliché

My first non-fiction book on writing is blog-touring for a couple of weeks, so I felt it was fitting to also post said blog here, in my own personal space, exactly as (hopefully) printed on the other sites. I hope you writers out there read this. I wrote this book for YOU. I don’t know […]


Eye Candy. A 99 Cent Investment. Worth Every Penny.

I’ve blogged about it before. The book world these past few years has been turned on its ass, and not all for the good of (decent) writers. Yes, now writers with talent that were getting turned down by publishers (most great writers were turned down for years by publishers) can post their wonderful books. But […]


INK: Eight Rules To A Better Book

I finally did it. I published my first (and perhaps only) non-fiction book. It’s for writers. Any type. It transcends experience and inexperience; success and failure; genre, gender, and generation. I’m not kidding. I wrote this book because I’ve spent so many years critiquing in workshops and reading books and thinking, “just do THIS or […]


A New (Excellent?) Book On Writing

On March 15, 2013, in Book Covers, Book Release, Events, New Books, Shameless Self-Promotion, by rsguthrie

Okay, there, I allowed my ego to convince me (Freud’s ego; the actual one that exists inside each of us, not a bloated head). I’ve been writing for twenty-something years and I am still my own biggest critic. I’ve been blogging about writing, what works in writing, what doesn’t work, and I have received almost […]

Dark Prairies Book Trailer

On July 19, 2012, in Book Release, Book Trailer, New Books, Video, by rsguthrie

For you blog readers, here’s the new trailer for my book. Music by Kenny Wayne Shepherd (“Blue on Black”): Because I love this song so much, here is an ultra-cool version performed live at one of the Guitar Center Sessions (not unlike “Unplugged” on MTV). Well worth the watch:


Learning The Ropes Without Getting Beaten To Death On Them

My “big” ad is running now. I signed up for it last March or so, figuring I could squirrel away a bit here and a bundle there until, by the time I actually had to pay for it, I’d have the funds. I’m not going to say what it cost, one because I am keeping […]


Feeling Like I Should Be More Like Kerouac

On July 18, 2012, in Book Release, Indie Authors, Marketing, The Market, by rsguthrie

So I’ve had a few people tell me they’re glad I’m blogging more lately, but how are you feeling about it? I’m thinking if I’m going to blog more, I should shorten up my blogs. I tend to put together some pretty long blogs and I’m wondering if there’s some rule in Blogging 101 (which […]


How To Handle A Rare Reviewer (Or: How Many Stars DOES Your Book Deserve?)

Today, Dear Readers, is Saturday the 14th. You know what that means, right? Yesterday was Friday the 13th! I never said anything about it in my blog yesterday (or in my bog which is what I typed first, having only finished a sip of my first morning coffee—I suppose to say something like that in […]
