Hey Writers: Wanna Bundle With Me?
So there’s this not-so-new idea of selling story bundles, and since I’m always somewhere like two years behind the curve on most trends, I got the idea that I might try and create a story bundle with another writer.
If you’re a horror, occult, mystery, or slipstream writer who writes creepy, strange, unusual books and you want to team up on a bundle, post a link to your stuff in the comments below.
Maybe we can make a bundle together, what say?

The Amazon Gambit
My fiction novels are now available for your Kindle
[In Part 1, The Amazon Withdrawal, our intrepid hero pulled all his eBooks from Amazon because he blamed the massive retailer for the demise of the corner bookstore. In Part 2, The Amazon Stupidity, the struggling writer realized that none of his objections were going to change where readers go to get their word fix. Part 3, The Amazon Gambit, opens with the writer offering all of his fiction books on Amazon, the most popular eBook marketplace on planet Earth.]
Well gang, didn’t want to, but I pretty much had to. Amazon, like the river from which it takes its name, is the biggest tributary on Earth, and the current there is strong. Sales of my non-fiction are getting better every day, but the fiction novels are stalled. Time to do something smart — namely go where the…

F=MA: The Secret to Success
Trains are hard to stop because they have lots of mass and they go fast. (photo courtesy of Wikimedia Commons).
There is a simple lesson that artists of all kinds can learn from Applied Physics. Believe me when I say that, whether you are a writer, a painter, or a martial artist, the equation “F=MA” is directly relevant to you.
For those who don’t remember high school science, “F” is force, and it is equal to “M” (mass) times “A” (acceleration). A bullet is small and light, its devastating force caused by blinding speed.
If you are a martial artist, your mass is largely fixed. In competition there are weight classes. You and the person you are fighting have just about the same mass. The only way you can increase your force is by increasing your speed. Outside the ring, in self-defense, speed is still the answer to the quest…

The Color Thesaurus
I love to collect words. Making word lists can help to find the voice of my story, dig into the emotion of a scene, or create variety.
One of my on-going word collections is of colors. I love to stop in the paint section of a hardware store and find new names for red or white or yellow. Having a variety of color names at my fingertips helps me to create specificity in my writing. I can paint a more evocative image in my reader’s mind if I describe a character’s hair as the color of rust or carrot-squash, rather than red.
So for fun, I created this color thesaurus for your reference. Of course, there are plenty more color names in the world, so, this is just to get you started.
Fill your stories with a rainbow of images!
