Joe, to hell with the stories - well, briefly - how was the fishing?
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

It took me three fishing trips to finally catch one. A small bronze shark. Between the five of
us we caught three bronze sharks, one ragged tooth shark just over a metre long, and one
rock cod. Good times.

Yeah! Way to go Joe! On the fishing and the getting more work with your writing. Now, follow Yamrus's example and do the facebook posting. I understand he's doing quite well promoting there and around the net.

I'm curious, how many leads do you think you get from FB?

Lots. I've chatted with editors, agents and some great writers, including a couple of my idols.
If you like or befriend the facebook pages of different markets you always get up to the minute
updates on anthologies or other opportunities. Facebook also gets a lot of traffic onto my website.
Friends recommending to friends etc.

That's great Joe! Did you start out self published or are you earning respect the hard way?


I know which FB friend I'm going to when I decide to put myself out there. ;D ;) That is, if you think me worthy.

Hard way. I'm still young, so I'm in no hurry.  :)

Let me know when you join. I love getting to know more people, especially writers.  :)

Thanks, DG.

Just got another acceptance this morning from Black Petals Magazine for my flash fiction story Forever Nevermore.
Another story I wrote for an MWC Flash Fiction challenge.  :)

Full speed ahead, Joe.  Your production is amazing.  Just keep doing what you're doing.  The best.
