Oops, I missed this - sorry!

I don't have any PLANS for Alex, but that doesn't mean too much, really. If something comes to me, I'll definitely do it.

Part of the problem with him as a hero, though, is that he's so mentally healthy right now. Like, he's gone through some crap and has some scars, but he knows who he is and accepts himself and has good coping mechanisms. All of which is great, for a person, but is kind of challenging for a main character! I mean, what would he overcome, exactly?

Oooh, unless he was the strong, stable one who helped his partner find happiness... and on the surface Alex seems flaky, so his partner could be really solid on the surface and underneath be a mess, and Alex could be the reverse... hmmmmm...(less)

Holy Smokes – bad blogger!

This can’t be right… over TWO YEARS since I last entered anything here? Yikes!





What has been missed in that time? Quite a bit, I assume… probably too much to catch up on. But two big events – I’ve pulled a lot of my books from Dreamspinner and have republished them under my own name (so if you’re following old links, sorry… they’re probably taking you to the wrong place…) and… I’ve had a few new bo

James Moushon Hi.

I’d like to introduce myself. Besides being the author of the Jonathon Stones Mystery Series, I am a strong Author's Advocate. I write articles highlighting other authors books. Also, I do author interviews and post them on my blogs. Thanks for friending me. Here’s my latest article.

Authors: The Task of Finding Readers – A Study
Over 30 Outstanding Authors Share Their Experiences.

All authors can learn something from this study.

As they say “This is great stuff. As authors try to gain traction in today’s marketplace. The secret besides writing good books is to find readers and establish relationships.”

You can view the complete study on the blog: HBS Author’s Spotlight
