WYDKN on sale at B&N SYR


I had to drive to the east side of Syracuse, NY last week for my first book signing in a Barnes & Noble store, and the clock was ticking. I left ‘way ahead of time for the event, but an unexpected traffic circle threw me off course. Now I was cutting it too close.

To Summon The Blackbird by Ken DoggettThis has been a record-breaking sales month for me, and 90% of it due to my new book, "To Summon The Blackbird," which debuted in the latter part of January.

Writing is a practice which must be practiced often. We spill our hearts onto the page but sometimes, it is enough to just get a few words down. Sometimes the Muse feels distant and we are distracted, or the ability to delve deep just isn't there. Nevertheless, a writer develops the discipline to... Read more of this blog post »
