Come and meet Cancer man, aka William B Davis

I got the honour to chat with this actor, director and author about his 70 years in the entertainment business. And of course, his iconic role as Cigarette Smoking Man in the X Files.

William has just released his second autobiography titled, On Acting… And Life.

When William talks you listen and can’t help but smile at his positivity.

Author Assist

I took part in Go Indie Now Teachables. Basically, I showed how anyone can use Canva, the free graphic design program. So extensive, you can do almost everything on it and it’s so easy to use and navigate, a child can do it.
However, after you’ve watched the lesson, if you have any questions please ask.
Enjoy.

Maanarak Is Opening Up Her Soul.

I spoke with Maanarak about her soon-to-be debut book. As authors, we always give a lot of ourselves in our stories and many are biographical.

Maanarak goes even further by writing poetry and these are powerful words that she spins into a tale of past experiences. She opens up her heart and leaves it on the page. Such a gift many would love to possess. Not only does she write this amazing poetry but she illustrates using her unique style to tell the story of the poem. And she doesn’t stop there. With each poem, besides it, she tells the truth behind the words.

If it wasn’t bad enough bearing your soul in poetry, to then write the story of where the words came from, is truly inspiring and terrifying at the same time and I take my hat off to her, (if I was wearing one) for being brave enough to let it all out. She doesn’t hide behind make-believe she tells it exactly how it is and that makes it so raw and honest.
Come and meet Maanarak, the lady Behind The Pen.

You can find Maanarak on Instagram and listen for the announcement of when this more than poetry book will be published.

Addicted To Education

If Amy Rivers had her way, she would stay and keep studying for as long as she’s able. But having your own business, a family, and being a full-time author, has halted her addiction…. for now.

Not only is Amy a successful author, she’s also a pro when it comes to internet marketing. She has a major in Philosophy and Political Science and many other academic achievements and still can’t make up her mind whether to become a lawyer or not.

Amy Rivers writes novels, short stories and personal essays. She is the Director of Northern Colorado Writers, and was chosen as 2021 Indie Author of the Year by the Indie Author Project.

Her novel All The Broken People was recently selected as the Colorado Author Project winner in the adult fiction category. She’s been published in We Got This: Solo Mom Stories of Grit, Heart, and Humor, Flash! A Celebration of Short Fiction, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Nurses, and Splice Today, as well as Novelty Bride Magazine and ESME.com.

In April 2021, Complicit, the first book in the A Legacy of Silence series was published. It recently won 2nd place in the 2021 CIPA EVVY Awards. 

She was raised in New Mexico and now lives in Colorado with her husband and children. She holds degrees in psychology and political science, two topics she loves to write about.

Fantasy vs Sci-fi – friends chat


Wesley Britton is an author of the Beta Earth Chronicles and short story collection in sub-genres. He’s also been my client for many years now. As Wesley is blind he relies on me to handle most of his business to do with his books. I take care of his monthly newsletter, I’m his PA, VA, graphic designer, social media manager. I handle the marketing and promotion, I narrate, I’ve done book trailers and the list goes, on.
Wesley emails me at least 3 times or more every day, (even on my weekends off) and we talk on the phone 1/2 times a month, more if needed. So we know each other and the books we both write, very well.

This chat was hosted by Jasveena, from International Book Promotions. It was fun and many will find it informative.
The best thing about the video is that she has split it up into small parts so you can watch and listen to which part interests you, or you can watch the full video.
Enjoy.



Behind The Pen – Marc Cushman

My wingman, Wesley Britton and I had a fascinating chat with award-winning author, Marc Cushman. Marc is the author of The Voyages of Star Trek, books, as well as bio,’s on Moody Blues, Voyages Under The Sea, I Spy and, Lost in Space. He’s also producer, director and writer.

We get lots of behind the scenes gossip on Star Trek and the amazing story of how he’s been in the right place at the right time, many times in his life, so far.

Wesley Britton, who’s been a fan of Marc and has read most of his books, then puts some interesting questions to him.

So sit back get ready to be amazed and have a laugh with us.
Enjoy.

Cobalt by CG Blade – narrated excerpt

Check out this small reading I did from the exciting first book of the Pseudoverse series. by C.G. Blade.

You can download Cobalt now for just $0.99c
The thrilling non-stop plots within our first Pseudoverse Series novel are fused with futuristic technology and genetic engineering running parallel with each other inside Cobalt until the very end. The American citizens and the military are subjugated becoming instantly complacent by an unseen threat. Could this be a virus, biological agent, or worse, mind-control? The entire Pseudoverse Series lays out how we got to the point of artificial intelligence singularity and why. One man’s quest to save the woman he loves on the verge of death starts as good intentions and turns into a final fight for the planet. In Cobalt, America is hijacked by the Tri-Presidents with the help of the failing United Nations. What they did not count on was an Army Officer with a unique code of quantum programming. Taking back the land she loves is going to require remarkable weapons, investigative skills, cunning, bravery, and an awful lot of Twinkies.

“Every undiscovered, unread page, of a CG Blade novel is a wild ride waiting to happen. The expansive cast of characters is as funny as they are deadly. Think “X-Files and the Twilight Zone, meet Philip K. Dick, Jane Bond, and Mrs. Emma Peel.” You will never see the next event nor the ending coming at you. The cliffhangers from book to book are creative and well thought out. Each novel fits together like a giant puzzle with the pieces waiting to be tied together. Fantastic writing that only gets better with each book. These novels are hard to put down once you open them up, and you will be thinking about them for days afterward. This is the sign of an author with a highly creative mind that carefully plots out every last detail.”
Tom P – Amazon Review

Cobalt is full of surprises anyone will enjoy, even if you are not a fan of this specific genre. Cobalt is a heart-pounding mysterious read that will have you wondering who is real and who is not, all the way up until the very last chapter. The mystery deepens as First Lieutenant Petra Kayden Dace sets out to discover who or ‘what’ is behind the subjugation of the United States, the world, and its citizens. Cobalt is an action-packed thriller sure to entertain and keep you guessing until the very end. Filled with humor, hidden clues, and new technology, you will never forget this one-of-a-kind fiction mystery. Step into a world of binary political corruption as Cobalt becomes a lethal weapon in an arsenal against pure technology-based evil.
