Why I, as an author who studies, writes about, and revels in 1000 BC, am now blogging on the internet is a question I haven't been able to answer yet. And why I decided to begin this blog just as I am ready to turn into a pumpkin and put down roots in front of my computer while I work on the next Dahveed book is also beyond me. Yet, here I am doing it!
I guess it grew out of the questions I hear from readers who want to know how the next book is coming and what I am working on now. To be perfectly literal about that last comment, I'm listening to William Tell Overture and writing this blog. Do I always listen to music when I write? Yes. 99.9% of the time. Classical only, no words, at least not in English. (Dahveed 1 will forever be connected to Rachmanioff. ) By the end of the summer I won't be able to listen to classical music without my fingers itching, and my brain beginning to plot---something, anything!
The blog also seemed to be a good way to provide a forum for readers to communicate with me, and with each other. So, I hope you enjoy it. As far as I can see right now, I won't be posting a lot, too busy writing, but I will try to keep current with what's been put on it by others. I will also try to keep my web page updated with significant news.
To those of you who have purchased my books so far, THANK YOU! Remember, Dahveed 3 is now available as an e-book for Kindle and Nook from Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble. And for those of you without Kindles, "Kindle for PC" free application should be of help. See "Ordering Information" on my web page.
Back to writing!
P.S. Anyone got a good name for this blog?
