  • Ingrate by Dorien Grey 3/31/2014 2:05:59 AM
    I don’t like to think of myself as an ingrate, but my entire life points to the fact that I am. And, lest you think I’m being characteristically too hard on myself, I hasten to point out that I most definitely am not alone, nor am I the worst-case ex... more

  • If by Dorien Grey 3/24/2014 2:43:24 AM
    Though I can’t remember the source, I’ve admire whoever it was who asked, “how is it that people who long for immortality are so easily bored on a rainy Sunday afternoon?” I do think that individual immortality would be more of a curse than ... more

  • Social Media: The Great American Pie War by Chiara Talluto 3/10/2014 9:59:57 AM
    Social media and self-promotion of an author's upcoming book is like "The Great American Pie War ." Pie meets face. My novel, God-willing will hit Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble on Mother's Day, May 11th. I've signed up with FB, LinkedIn, A... more

  • Little Boy Lost by Dorien Grey 3/10/2014 3:34:30 AM
    I have never grown up—a combination of circumstances and deliberate effort. When I was five I had no desire whatsoever to be six. I even now pay only lip service to the fact of being an adult. I’ve always been acutely aware that life is a precio... more

  • On Thinking by Dorien Grey 3/3/2014 4:06:08 AM
    I do an awful lot of thinking. ... No, let me rephrase that: my mind is like a car with the engine turned on, the gas pedal pushed to the floor, and the gearshift in neutral. This is to “thought” what a table full of baking ingredients is to a pie. ... more

  • Simple Rules by Dorien Grey 2/24/2014 3:38:29 AM
    It somehow always comes as something of a surprise every time I'm faced with the fact that life ain't easy, and that the passage through it is frequently chaotic. To bring some semblance of order, rules were invented. Since life is a cumulative learn... more

  • A Book's Tale by Dorien Grey 2/17/2014 3:41:12 AM
    One of the many fascinating things about being a writer is, after a book has been written, to be able to look back on its history…not just on the steps it took to being written, but what consciously or unconsciously prompted those steps. My very firs... more

  • Compared to What? by Dorien Grey 2/10/2014 4:13:43 AM
    I often quote one of my favorite bits of wisdom from an anonymous sage: "When people tell me 'Life is hard', I'm always tempted to ask, 'Compared to what?'" I’ve never understood what there is there in the human psyche that makes us assume that life ... more

  • Drive a Stake Through the Vampires' Hearts! by David A. Schwinghammer 2/6/2014 8:32:11 AM
    What's the deal with all the vampire books and movies? ... more

  • A Bologna Sandwich by Dorien Grey 2/3/2014 4:01:57 AM
    Shortly after I returned home from Mayo Clinic after my successful treatment for tongue cancer in 2003, I had the indescribably overpowering craving for a huge glass of orange juice, which lasted for days. I was at that point still taking all my nour... more

  • Delusions by Dorien Grey 1/27/2014 3:50:25 AM
    Over the years I have become something of an expert at self-delusion. I can honestly convince myself, short of defying the laws of physics, of almost anything. I hasten to add I am not so delusional that I am unaware that they are delusions, but they... more

  • Imprints by Dorien Grey 1/13/2014 4:09:07 AM
    I’ve seen photos of dinosaur footprints made in mud millions of years before Man first made his appearance upon the stage. The mud through which the dinosaurs walked has turned to rock, but the footprints remain. And like the dinosaur footprints, man... more

  • WHAT? by Robert A. Mills 1/11/2014 11:47:44 AM
    I had to opportunity to meet the man and interview him when Chris and I went with Jimmy Lapiana and his betrothed (we hope Jimmy eventually married her; she was a great gal even if we do not remember her name). The man was still alive in those days, ... more

  • If at first.... by Dorien Grey 1/6/2014 4:09:18 AM
    I don’t like being hard on myself, but how can I possibly not be? I live on a slippery slope and I am wearing shoes coated in grease. The simplest things and concepts for others are all but impossible for me. The most recent example? I need ... more

  • Wearing two hats by Debra Johnson 1/2/2014 7:14:51 PM
    As a self-published author I have to wear two hats, and so do you, if you’re a self- published author. The hats we wear are the writer and the marketer / promoter. For some it is easier to wear one than it is the other. Some wear both comfortably, I... more
