Bring Your Story to a Satisfying Close with Bookends

It isn’t always easy to decide where to begin – or end – your story. Many authors take too much time “warming up” instead of starting a scene where something is happening. Others (or the same ones) trail on too long at the end, perhaps trying to explain everything that happened. But a strong beginning and a satisfying ending are important – and “bookends” may help you decide what those should be. Strong stories have a distinct beginning (introducing the main character and problem), middle (where the character [...]

Tell the World Your Story

I began writing when I was a child. Although I practiced other forms of creative expression, I was most attracted to writing. Through words, I could paint pictures and make music. Through words, I could make people laugh and cry and think. The first story I wrote was called The Magic Pen. This story was about a pen, that when used, created stories without the use of any human input as if a sacred power came through the ink of the pen. I could have never known that [...]

Transfer your domain name to godaddy

I know I said Godaddy is not a great shared hosting provider for author website hosting, but for domain names I really like it and recommend it. So if you want to transfer your domain name to Godaddy here is how. I have bought hundreds of domains from different registrars and I still think Godaddy is the best and easiest to use (except for the many up-sells). Other domain registrars I recommend are:,, (they have a great escrow service). Feel free to comment below if you [...]

Author Website Hosting – Where To Host?

If you are looking for a great solution for hosting your author website, please contact us. I have learned in the past few years to stay away from big companies when it comes to hosting, so much so that a few years ago I opened my own hosting company just to make sure my clients’ websites are secure and working as I wanted them and as they should.Now there are several reasons that these shared hosting accounts they are selling are absolutely useless, and [...]

Where To Find Free Pictures For Your Author Blog

Just because you site the source when copying pictures from Facebook or other popular pages (like Instagram and Tumblr), it is still a no-no. You may even be breaking the law! You must check the rights to each photo you post, even on Facebook or your personal website. It is possible that later, even years down the road, you WILL find yourself in legal trouble. It was a few years ago that I found myself in a similar situation. I received a letter in the mail from the attorneys [...]

What Can You Get For Free?

This has been a saying that has stuck with me for many years, though I no longer remember where it came from. “If you are not paying for something it means you are not the customer (obviously), you are the actual product and you are being sold”. This is important to remember when you use sites like Facebook for “free,” Google for “free,” Weebly for “free,” and many more. This applies to most things, especially online. “Download This Free Gift Today” “This report will make you a bestselling author, [...]
