Junk Mail and SASE Book Promotions

A little something I would like to share to my friends. My wife and I refinanced our house and got a better deal through Rocket Mortgage/Quicken Loans. Now I know why. They sell my contact info to others to make up the difference. Today in the mail we received 8 letters from different companies claiming they are working with Quicken Loans trying to sell us insurance for life and the mortgage. They had the ‘exact’ amount of the loan in each letter. Now let the spam begin…
 
The good side is I got 8 self-address stamped envelopes I’m going to use to promote my books. Instead of sending them their filled-out forms, I sending them each a card to promote the books (and they paid for the stamps).

Fly It Like You Stole It!

My first attempt creating a YouTube Video. What would you do if you found an abandoned flying saucer in your own backyard? Me, I would fly it like I stole it.

EMP This Weekend

Last week my wife and I watched a good movie called E.M.P. 333 Days, a story about surviving an E.M.P. blast which sends North America back to the pre-industrial age. It follows an 11 year old girl’s journey to reach a safe zone and finding her father.

We liked the movie and plan on purchasing a copy for our collection. But it gave my wife an idea. This weekend we’re going to party like it’s 1899. Basically, no electricity (except what’s still in our batteries), phones, TV, microwave, stove, etc. The experiment will be based on right after the blast.  The food in the fridge will still be good for a couple or days or so, but anything we cook will be either on the outside grill (I really don’t grill unless you like charcoaled hot dogs) or in our fireplace (cooking pork and beans in the fireplace will be interesting).

Wish us luck.

Military Photos in Afghanistan, 2058

OSAP Files: 205805ARM: Undisclosed Location in South Afghanistan

Two photos released in late 2062 revealed a disc-shaped craft over an undisclosed military base in Afghanistan. Staff-Sergeant Britany Adams claimed she taken the photos in early May of 2058 as the object sped past silently overhead.

Analysis of the photos revealed estimated the craft to be thirty-five feet in diameter and six-foot-two at its thickest point. Similar objects have been photographed in McMinnville, Oregon, on May 11, 1950, and over Rouen, France, in March 1954. The same craft was also sighted north of Dallas, Texas, on January 22, 1878.

Business Insider Headline

I just saw a headline from Business Insider saying… I Lost $25 Million, and Here’s What It Taught Me.

I have only one question. Have you looked under your seat cushions or couch? I find $$$ there all the time.

A Fact About Facebook

A little something for my fellow authors (and other small businesses). I was just reading “The 10 Commandments of Author Branding” by Shayla Raquel about using social media. It has a good section on Facebook and she mentioned something I wanted to share. On page 50 she says… “Fact: according to Facebook’s policies, you’re not supposed to use your profile as a business.” If you do, Facebook can suspend your profile or shut it down. For authors, it’s best to create an author page on Facebook for your business (it’s still free).

Outtake from book 2, Conflict: Earth!

If you ever wonder what to blog about to build your branding you could use an outtake, or deleted scene, from your book. Another option is an blog about the background of one of your characters.

Keep in mind people prefer to look at pictures more than read so use one. You can find something online that fits what you might need or create your own like I did here. This scene was never on book 2, Conflict: Earth!, but it could have. I just typed up a quick scene to go with the image and presto, here it is.

Enjoy…

t’Nina carefully examined the image of the Urutusian saucer as it left the planet projected above the holographic projector. She wondered how they could have missed it when they scanned the world before destroying the human base.

Sensors detect only three humans aboard the craft, l’Endra’s thoughts brushed aside t’Nina’s. It appears to be on an interception course with our patrol.

“It would be interesting to see what they have planned,” she smiled at the thought. “Does it have any weapons?”

Only phasers.

“Hmmm, interesting indeed.”

Jack Slater Discovers a Flying Saucer

An excerpt from USA: Eliminated! available on Amazon, Kindle, and other fine bookstores.
   …Bright, white light almost blinded him; what he saw made him drop his PADD. The most beautiful sight sat in the middle of the room. He started walking forward. His mind raced full speed, several thoughts competing. Excitement brewed deep inside his chest, waiting to burst. He felt like a kid on Christmas morning discovering all the gifts under the tree. In fact, the last time he felt this way was when he was three on Christmas morning.
Earth Christmas Present

A close encounter of the fun kind.

He reached with one hand, and he touched it. For most of Jack’s life, he had been chasing flying saucers. Now he caught one. A real flying saucer!
He stepped back and examined it. He estimated it to be fifty-five feet in diameter. It was lenticular-shaped, convex on both sides.
The skin of the saucer was silvery-white, metallic, solid, with no visible seams. Centered on top was a large dome Jack estimated being ten feet in diameter and five feet high; making the saucer, at its thickest point, fifteen feet.

I want a flying saucer for Christmas!

The rim of the saucer was flattened six inches thick. The craft was sitting on four landing gears that extended outward.
   He circled the saucer for a way in but found no visible openings or viewports. He checked underneath and found nothing. He touched the skin again. It was cool.
He stepped back, heart racing. He inhaled a deep breath to calm himself. It took several breaths before he could think straight…
