Return to BSFS

Posted on July 6, 2016 at 11:16pm 2 Comments

Wow. Nearly 2 yrs since I last posted here? Well, I could trot out the usual excuses (all of which are valid, btw), but what's the point? It'd be a long list of illness (physical and mental), lack of money and motivation, etc. blah woof.

So. I'm back here, for now. Looking forward to what's been happnin since I was last here. Book reccs welcomed. Last one I read by a non-white person was Errick Nunnally's Blood for the Sun, which I liked a lot. Reviewed it for Foreword Reviews…

Foreword Reviews: Another marketing tool

Posted on August 9, 2014 at 2:57am 0 Comments

Independent (aka small-press) publishers and author-publishers tend to do a lot of marketing with as little $$ as possible. Sites like BSFS provide members with the opportunity to promote their work on this site. So, is there a marketing tool that all of the above could benefit from with minimal $$ outlay?…

Thank goodness winter's over

Posted on June 5, 2014 at 4:46pm 0 Comments

The snow mountains at the end of my driveway have been gone about a month. Much snow descended on my village this winter, much-needed water to replenish underground aquifers in the area. With the increase in sunshine, my depression has again faded back; more smiles and laughter is always a good thing. :-)…

Stumbling toward December

Posted on October 15, 2012 at 2:14pm 3 Comments

That's about how my life has been going since February. Depression sucks. The meds are working, though, and I don't find it so difficult to get things done. Still far to go on that road, but making progress is encouraging. PES is still on the back burner, not completely abandoned. I need to get a biz plan written up before I can move forward with it, in any case. Hope all here at BSFS are having prosperous times in 2012.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
