The RV Time Continuum

Previously, I mentioned how our motorhome, Discovery, carries a pocket dimension, an extra-dimensional space sorta like the Tardis. What I hadn't realized is Discovery also has it's own rules for time as well. Maybe it's in the way it bends space which affects that continuum. Or the sheer mass hurtling down the highway gathers enough … Continue reading The RV Time Continuum

Giving It All Away Without Getting Scammed

A few weeks ago I wrote about scaling down our lives for our coming adventure. Decades of living "large" has presented the biggest challenge to moving into our new motor home. Whether through online listings, gifts to friends and relatives, or donations to charitable causes, the logistics of getting rid of all the extra stuff … Continue reading Giving It All Away Without Getting Scammed

What If…I Could Write Faster?

What if I could write faster? I've talked about this often, but I always feel the need to explain how I'm not the guy who cranks out a book every month. I'm barely the guy who cranks out a book every six months. Current conventional book marketing wisdom says the more frequently you release the … Continue reading What If…I Could Write Faster?

Giving It All Away

Of all the preparation which comes with moving into a 40 foot by 12 foot box on wheels, the toughest thing is making it all fit.   We've been homeowners since 1998. Our first house was a modest (by Texas standards) 1200 square foot, single story home built in the late sixties. Five years later, … Continue reading Giving It All Away

A Book! With Words! – Selling Books at Dallas FanExpo

Thanks to the authors across the way at Dallas FanExpo, one slogan will be forever emblazoned in my brain. Because, well, they had a book. It had words. They wanted everyone to understand this. So, they shouted it mercilessly. And you know what? It worked. By the end of the weekend, I'm pretty sure they'd … Continue reading A Book! With Words! – Selling Books at Dallas FanExpo

Taking the Leap

As you know, last week we signed the papers on our new home. With the exception of the 350 horsepower diesel engine and the four six wheels on the pavement, it's like any other home. A kitchen, bathroom, shower, bedroom, living room, breakfast nook, too many televisions, and...turn signals. Finding it however, wasn't like shopping for … Continue reading Taking the Leap
