Welcome Readers!

Mathew Wayne Selznick, the author of Brave Men Run, has been tracking authors for the last couple of months. If you would like to read his blog post check his site at I enjoy Mathew’s perspective on social networking and dig that he is so inventive, not only as a writer but as a podcaster, musician and DIY media guru. I actually attended a house concert he held on a short few weeks ago! It was so much fun.

The book made the number 17 slot for the Top 20 Podiobooks on And my dear friend Arlene Radasky author of The Fox Made the 19 slot! Among the other top podiobook authors I feel sure the only reason we made the list is because of the timing of the study, but I don’t care it is really cool to see my name right up there with the big folks of podcasting. Like Scott Sigler, Mur Lafferty, Jalal al-Din Rumi, Matthew Wayne Selznick, Bill DeSmedt, Tee Morris, Philippa Ballantine, Seth Harwood, Leslie Ann Moore, Mark Jeffrey, Joe Cottonwood. Congratulations to everyone who made this top twenty list.

This week will be the last posting of The Mark of Druid podcast so look for it to hit late in the week. The audio book is out there in full so please go listen and leave a comment and rate the book where ever you listen.

This blog is changing scheduled and will now come out every other week. So write to you all in two weeks!

Welcome Readers!

This week I uploaded the last chapter (episode 33) in Book One of The Mark of a Druid Series!

Next week will be the final upload for this podcast. I will be producing this week the first chapter for When Ethers Descend. This is the next book in the series. And while it is not yet wholly written, I wanted you all to get a taste for book two.

What is next for The Mark of a Druid?

A larger presence as a PDF and other formats is in order! I hope to even catch up with Arlene Radasky’s The Fox, and make it to iphone and digital formats.

I also ask for listener help last week on I meant it and wanted to say thank you to all of the listeners that commented both live and in email form. Thank you! I have taken your comments seriously and have reproduced episode 1 and 2 this week. They are now live. I hope they are better. I will be reproducing episode 3 this week and I hope I will be able to maintain the schedule this week and have it live on Sunday afternoon. But either way I want to you know your comments are greatly appreciated and I am doing something about the stilted speaking patterned you all noticed in the first 3 episodes along with Quality. These were the episodes I recorded in my old office so unless there is something else you guys notice these will be the only ones I redo. This pod cast novel has been a huge learning experience for me and I am thrilled that it is getting such great reviews again keep them coming. And if you know someone who prefers to read the book is available at Amazon!

Now for the what’s next? Section a new colleague and I are working on a podcasting idea and when it is firmed up I’ll be share it. Until then, know I am writing every day! YES! It feels great!This Week’s Recommendation: I suggest you go nab Fractured Horizon By H.E. Roulo. She is a wonderful author and her book is now complete and free for you to enjoy. It is a hot story that has a logical and fun plot line. Technology and cloning a race of superior warriors called the Adams vs. the Royals who have some very interesting capabilities themselves. And Kay her main character, is someone I have had a blast flowing through time with. Don’t miss this one go to and get all the episodes now. You won’t be disappointed, I loved it and am now looking forward to listening again straight through!

I don’t think it is serious as he called me just after it happened. Back to Biz…So keep up with what is going on and get your weekly fix of The Mark of a Druid.

The Print Version?

As I type this blog I am awaiting the final cover design so I can approve it. Let’s just say it was not easy to get to this stage. Also if you haven’t paid close attention to the cover art as there are hidden symbols and I will be starting a contest with a ton of great prizes for identifying them. More on this when I have a release date from Iuniverse.

The interior of the book has been approved and now we only wait on the cover finish and we are in printer set up mode. So for those of you who are waiting for the print versions hold on it is coming I promise!

If you haven’t noticed the blog roll to your right you should stop by and check out Fractured Horizon by H.E. Roulo I am starting it this week and will leave a review when I am done.

This week is about podcasting. Out there tell everyone that the book is available. Market, Market Market. Edit Episode 14 which is recorded but not edited. And write the press releases. Scary!

Also this week the book was promoted on J.D. Sawyers Antithesis and Edward G. Tabolt’s New Word Order as well as Emriane Rich’s Horror Addicts. Thank you all for adding my promo. You’re the best! See these authors’ works in the hot promo section of this site. Very cool stuff.
