All my characters want for Christmas is...


 
I’ve written a list. I’ve checked it twice. I sent it to Santa, and then I realized I’d forgotten to get presents for some very important people in my life - my characters from my books. So I sent off emails to each of them and asked them what they wanted this year for Christmas. I'm not sure I can give them what they want, but here’s what they said anyway.


Jett Jones (The Bird With The Broken Wing)

“A car. I know there’s a fat chance of getting one, but I’m asking for a car anyway. If not a car, then a moped. Maybe the one like Audrey Hepburn rode in Breakfast At Tiffanys. I’m dying to be able to go somewhere on my own.”
 


Ethan James (Feedback)

“Now that I’m fit and healthy I’m making a comeback into ice hockey. I need new gear. Hockey stick. Skates. Helmet. Gloves. Protective gear. Everything. Championships, here I come!”
 
 

Rachael Messenger (The Bird With The Broken Wing)

“Angels don’t give or receive Christmas gifts, but if I had to choose something, I’d ask for some nice bath oil.”
 


Florida Bowman (Feedback)

“A plane ticket to audition for So You Think You Can Dance. I put my dancing career on hold while I waited for an organ donation. Actually, my mother gave it my sister and I got her painting lessons. I'm taking my life back. Look out world, here I come.”

 


Leo Culver (Little Red Gem)

“World peace. If I can't have that I don't want anything."
 






Jake Inala (Feedback)
“A skateboard. Video games. Replica guns and knives. Ninja stuff. Just don’t get me clothes.”



Ruby Parker (Little Red Gem)
 
"I have everything I want already. Hah, I’m kidding. Handbags. Shoes. Scarves. Sunglasses.”




 

Audrey Adams (Little Red Gem)

“A puppy. I wanted a puppy last year. I want a puppy this year. I'll never give up wanting a puppy. Arrgh, when will someone get me a puppy?”




Wishing everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

See you in 2014.

Latest news! I've signed up to write a post-apoc series

When I started writing, I had one set goal: to become a prolific author. At the time I was into reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and I wanted to write books, lots of them.  Now I have that chance. After writing, publishing, and promoting 10 books, I've signed up to to write a series of post-apocalyptic fiction books for  Mission Critical Publishing. The reason I signed up was simple. They're innovative. The publishing industry today is fast and fluid.  I've agreed to write 3 books in 6 months. Each book will be around 60,000 words when completed. I'll need to become a writing machine. To accomplish this I'll need to do  2 things: #1 Write fast The only way for me to write fast is to write an overview of the entire book (or series). This can be one page per book. Then I write dots points that become the chapters. Complications, conflicts, solutions, all fit into these chapters. Then I set a daily word count. I'm

Welcome Latest news!!! What a surprise it was for me to check in on my online retail sites and discover some good news about my debut novel The Bird With The Broken Wing . I regularly do this to make sure links are working and what not. Anyway, I checked in and discovered that my publisher has reduced the ebook price to $2.99 USD. This is great news, because many ebooks are set at this price point and I've often thought that maybe this deterred buyers rather than attract them, which is the essence of selling. you can read reviews for this YA fantasy novel on author website Author's description of the book: "The Bird With the Broken Wing is a tale about a guardian angel who ends up in Purgatory with the mortal she was assigned to watch over. While working on getting her mortal out of Purgatory she discovers some disturbing news about her presence there." Things about this book you did not know , as told by the author D L Richardson : "This was ori

Science fiction predicts...

It started out as a discussion group on Amazon. "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" I asked this question and received so many great recommendations for books to read. Why did I ask this question in the first place? Because I'm writing two different sci-fi apocalyptic novels at the moment, and I really wanted to know that I had an audience. A writer's worst nightmare is to write a book that nobody wants to read. Yet, often its a case of nobody being able to find your book in the highway jam that is the internet. THE VIRTUAL WATER COOLER Everyone will tell you that word of mouth is still the best way to sell a book. The industry is clogged with books. Just like the highway, the jam is full of good cars and bad cars, and the online book industry is the same. Asking a question like "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" on an Amazon discussion group was the best way for me to get a list of books to purchase. This is the word of mouth that advertis
