A Birthday That Really Means Something

On April 4, 2013, in (or...), A Birthday Wish, Events, Family, by rsguthrie

As homo sapiens—ostensibly the highest-functioning beings on this rock flying through space—we have this (somewhat strange, I’ve always believed) need to ascribe emotional significance to particular days of the year. Now some are understandable, birthdays being amongst those I do understand, but it seems every year the world (or at least the U.S.) comes up […]

 

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 […]

 

Bestseller Russell Blake Goes Back To The Original!

On November 7, 2012, in BOOKS ON SALE, Events, Great Reads, Indie Authors, Interviews, Reading, RUSSELL BLAKE, by rsguthrie

Recently I caught up with Russell Blake, a good friend, bestselling author, and someone who has mentored me out of a corner or two in my illustrious writing career. He was preparing to put his first baby, Fatal Exchange, on sale, and I thought it would make an excellent segue into finding out a little […]

 

It was the best of times, it was the blurst of times.

As most of you know I can rarely look at anything in life without trying to inject at least a modicum of humor. The title line, clearly a twist on the opening line of Dickens’ classic, will to you Simpsons fans be familiar. In an attempt to see what a thousand monkeys banging on a […]

 

American Idol for Authors

Had the idea for the wildly successful (yet perhaps waning) American Idol not been born in the mind of Simon Fuller and then finally realized as a television show, singers like Carrie Underwood likely might never have been “discovered”. Clearly Underwood had “it”. She was and is enormously talented, yet prior to the fourth season […]

 

Dear Struggling Indie Writer

So it’s happened. I’ve let ‘er loose. As deep and dark (at times) and thrillingly scurrilous as this book is when need be (don’t worry, it has plenty of redemption) I am still going to think of Dark Prairies in the feminine. If you’ve read my blog much, you know I believe my muse is […]

 

What Is A “Magnum Opus” To You (And Have You Written One)?

On July 8, 2012, in Book Release, Celebrities, Events, Famous Writers, Great Reads, New Books, WIP, by rsguthrie

  As I prepare to release my third novel (and try not to notice that there are about ten new novels releasing in the next couple of weeks just within the smallish circle of writers I know), I take pause to think about a term I have always ascribed to this particular book, what it […]

 

Back Pain Sucks (or, Despite my Back, I’m Back) – Dedicated to Caleb

Wow. We had a wallop of a storm here a week ago and I tried to pretend I still had a little of the twenty year-old Herculean in me, running through the wind, downpour, and driving hail to save our basement from flooding. Oh, did I mention I was carrying a 27 foot extension ladder […]

 

ZOMBIE CANDY by Frederick Lee Brooke, A Book Review

On June 13, 2012, in Contests, Events, Giveaways, Great Reads, New Books, by rsguthrie

Well there are a lot of things we can say these days, but one of those many, many things is NOT “we have a shortage of zombie books”. Nope. Trust me, I was just saying it to my neighbor the other day and he corrected me by Googling “Zombie” and “Book” together. (I thought Amazon […]

 

Phreaky Phree Friday: You Definitely Want to Read This One

On March 16, 2012, in Events, FREE STUFF, Indie Authors, PHREAKY FREE STUFF, by rsguthrie

I’ve been thinking a lot about my books this past week or so. I want you to read them. I want you to give me a try. There are a LOT of books to choose from out there. Free this, samples of that. I try to give my growing readership here some interesting and (hopefully) […]
