Wow...that was easy. But is it right?

Easiest book contract ever acquired. I'm a bit stunned, but very encouraged.

Need to pray through pros and cons. Is this the right publisher at the right time?

Stay tuned...

The Importance of Having a Blog

Wow...I'm impressed. The purpose of this blog is simply a place holder for the moment. I set it up late last night and included the tracker to collect research data. I don't know whether to be encouraged or discouraged that over the midnight hours, this blog, with no promotion (and not much information) had more hits than Generation Ex Files, about my book that's already out and available. I've had visitors from the US, Canada, the Philippines, Singapore, Brazil and Korea.

Welcome friends, thanks for stopping by!

Day 2: Add Tracking Links

For lack of a better term, these are links that track visitors. I added a webcounter and a visitor statistic tracker.
