One Way Indie Authors Compete With Major Publishers.

Media editors often penalize writers who use illustrations or photos in fiction, except, of course, in children’s books. In novels, they consider graphics support “unprofessional.”In the case of indie writers, I believe they are wrong. Here’s why.I was an editor at the Reader’s Digest for many years. We loved pictures with our stories, which were either original or condensed from established magazines. But the editors upstairs, in the condensed book department, shunned them.... continue reading

Trailer Travels

My June weekend at the North Rim was a chance to visit the annual Star Party which is held during the new moon. Amateur astronomers with awesome 'scopes share the views of Saturn, Jupiter and Mars with all the visitors and educate you as well.

We found a great place to dry camp off of service road 22 just a few short miles from the park entrance, a large clearing about the size of 2 football... continue reading

Atlanterhavsveien

I love Norway and every year I try to learn a little bit more about this country. This year I started with, I think the mostpopular tourist route – Atlanterhavsveien- the Atlantic Road, which winds its way over smooth rocky islets.I will never forget the morning with the beautiful sunrise with incredible blaze of colour between the clouds and water … It was about 4 o’clock in the morning.
