'68 BUICK - BY BLAZE MCROB



https://www.amazon.com/68-Buick-Blaze-McRob-ebook/dp/B01KPAYEK6/ref=sr_1_5_twi_kin_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1471657341&sr=1-5&keywords=blaze+mcrob#nav-subnav

It has taken a long time for my novel '68 Buick to reach my readers. There have been many bridges to cross, obstacles tossed every which way, not only for myself but for others as well. It's not often that an author's life can relate to a fiction novel. With '68 Buick, however, that is the case. Truth and fiction were weaved together as I wrote this tale. I lived parts of it, embellished them, of course, and created monsters and heroes of imaginable dimension. My concept is unique. I portray the Grim Reaper in a whole new light, a man caught in a battle of good versus evil where strange allegiances are made. In this novel, I am the Reaper. I look in the mirror and see my face; I feel the hurt of others and work to fight for them; I am immortal, but I feel pain and angst.

If you are looking for a novel filled with action, good and evil people, and entities of every description, I believe you will enjoy my book. We provide a nice lengthy free sample on Amazon.

The fantastic cover art was done by Sue Midlock! Thanks, Sue.

Thank you Terri DelCampo, Quinn Cullen, Rebecca Boucher, and Beverly Cialone for your great work.

And, of course, thank you Dennis Lensing. You did a great job. I miss you, my friend. May we meet again in a better place. You certainly deserve my dedication.

Book description:


 Bob is a man forgotten by God,
Limbo the only afterlife he'll trod.

With the devil Bob deals to save his kids
And keep them safe off of Azazel's grid.

The brazen demon is trying to take
Hell's throne from Satan where doomed souls bake.

Bob's ex-wife's boyfriend's a witch of black magic
In league with Azazel, a team quite tragic.

Will he offer as sacrifice, Bob's kids?
Or will Bob and elf friends keep evil under lid?

A '68 Buick Bob accepts as his
A car housing ghost of his first missus.

Satan gives him the car to chauffer the scum
Of the earth to hell from which they can't run.

On Satan's ranch Bob drives to hell's brink
The car his and Barbara's immortal link.

With assistance from elves and some Vodou from Sadie
And help from Jack's group of misfits in earth's Hades.

Defeating the evil on earth is Bob's quest
From toil he'll never be able to rest.

Will Azazel take over Satan's rule?
Come ride with Bob and see first-hand the duel.

To sit and devour this ooky book.

JUST WRITE




I posted this on my website a while back. It's still good advice, I believe. On this post, I added in what Terri DelCampo has to say about the subject. I hope you pick up a few pointers.


                                                             *    *    *    *


Do you want to be an author? Just write. Easy peasy. You don't have the time? Horseshit. We all have time. I worked at many jobs at the same time, not having a day off for nine years. I still wrote. I wanted to, so I did it. In twenty something years, I wrote and had some seventy five ghostwritten novels published.

There are many moments you can use as writing time. Get up early and write. Do you work at a desk job? Write at lunch while you're eating. Carry a little notebook or tape recorder and take notes. Put the notes together and you'll have a story. Write at the end of the day when the kids are asleep. I think you can see a pattern here.

Why am I writing this now? Simple. Some folks have been bombarding me about how they want to be a writer but can't find the time. Writing takes no time. If you want to get published and sell some books, that's a different matter. This quickie post is not about that. More to come about that later, as with other articles I have written about it in the past.

Prioritize. If you don't want to be a writer, then don't write. If you do: write.

If you're still reading my discourse, and you want to be a writer, you're in luck. I'm finished. Time for you to write. I want to see your books bandied about so I can tell the world about them.

Happy writing.

Blaze McRob


                                                            *    *    *    *


 I love this scene from Finding Forrester. Excellent movie for aspiring writers, or even writers who need a motivation nudge.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLBEFvMkQCo This scene epitomizes how I feel about writing. If you're a writer, you write. Simple as that. I never go anywhere without paper and pen. Period. Don't even need a computer or typewriter. Pen and paper. Simple. In the house, in the car, on the beach, anywhere. From the time I was eleven. No matter what was going on in my life, I wrote. Because I am and always have been a writer.

Reasons that people give you for not writing are bullshit. I got up at 4:30 in the morning when my kids were very little and wrote 6 screenplays that way. Later when I worked for my husband's plumbing business and still had kids to raise, I stayed up until midnight and one in the morning. Wrote my first two novels that way. Then I worked full time after my separation and divorce and wrote my third novel by not flopping on the sofa and watching TV when I got home from work.

After my car accident and being rendered disabled I began self-publishing my magazine Owl's Eye View online, and last year I self-published my seven novels, three novellas, multiple short story collections, and Best Of collections from the magazine columns on Kindle (some 30 books). There's time. Carpe Diem, people. Or Carpe Noctem. Just don't carpe bullshit excuses. Just write!

Salvation for May in an attic trunk.

Wrath of bully victim runs deep.
Mad beasts end up in tranqued heap.

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT - FREEDOM OF (EVEN REVOLTING) SPEECH - BY TERRI DELCAMPO



http://terridelcampo.blogspot.com/2016/10/freedom-of-even-revolting-speech.html
Terri DelCampo gives her opinions about free speech. Even with issues and people she feels strongly about, she does not think people should have to limit what they have to say. These rights are guaranteed in the Constitution.

As much as I might disagree with people and some of the stupid, revolting things they have to say, they have the right to say them. Of course, it's a double edged sword. I don't respect the people who are truly disgusting, and I have every right to attack them in print. Sometimes, it's not worth the effort. Things like this can be a huge time suck with opinionated people who don't care to approach things from a humanistic point of view.

A case of the good, the bad, and the ugly. Read Terri's post and see if you agree.

ARE THERE REALLY REASONS FOR THE BAD STUFF? - BY TERRI DELCAMPO




http://disabilitychallengeswithterridelcampo.blogspot.com/2016/01/are-there-really-reasons-for-bad-stuff.html
Terri DelCampo has added another great post to her Disability Challenges with Terri DelCampo website http://disabilitychallengeswithterridelcampo.blogspot.com/. This time she discusses ARE THERE REALLY REASONS FOR THE BAD STUFF? One thing I admire about Terri is the fact she refuses to let handicaps get in her way. When there is something she wants to do, she does it. And, it's not always easy.

Read her post above and others she has written there. She provides links to her other websites as well. Terri writes in many genres. She is best known for her horror tales, but she has much more to grab your attention.

Happy reading.

THESAURUS: DEVIL BOOK - YEA OR NAY? BY TERRI DELCAMPO





http://www.writenowwithterridelcampo.blogspot.com/2016/02/thesaurus-devil-book-yea-or-nay.html
Tips on thesaurus use from Terri DelCampo on her Write Now with Terri DelCampo blog:


"As with chocolate brownies, moderation and discipline is the key when using a thesaurus.  I know there are writers giving tips everywhere saying that the thesaurus should never be cracked, but I disagree. 

First, you can learn a lot from a thesaurus on the expand-your-vocabulary horizon.  However, the thesaurus should be an editing tool more than a writing tool.  Write the story using words you absolutely know.  If there are words you use that you are not one hundred percent certain about, look up their synonyms in a thesaurus first, to give you context.  But then, look up the specific definitions for the word and its synonyms in a dictionary to be certain.  Even then, if you look up the synonym you plan to use, and the definition is the less common one, chances are it might not be correct in your story. 

For example, the matriarch in my fictitious town of Owl's Nest is a witch, and I wanted to find synonyms for the word witch because it comes up in my stories a lot."
There are some useful tips that might help you out.

MARKETING 101 - A DIFFERENT KIND OF BOOK ADDITION




Most authors like increasing the number of books they have for sale. Makes total sense, does it not? Sure it does, or does it? I have eleven of my short stories and my tales within anthologies in which the rights will revert back to me. Actually, all of them already do. However, the publisher is shutting down and I have a choice to make. Do I republish them or do I do something else?

I once believed that short stories were a way to get your longer books noticed. Could be, but for a 99 cent book, you're only getting 35 cents. So what will I do? I will at some point put these stories in collections and sell them that way. I have hundreds of them. My plan is to have collections in different word counts. I will charge $2.99 and $3.99 for a lot of them. Not bad for a 20,000 to 40,000 word collection. With a decent sized free sample on Amazon, readers can still get a sampling of my writing.

As for the bigger collections, those in the 70,000 to 90,000 word range, I'll charge $6.99, or more, for them, the same as I do my novels.

So, the subtraction of eleven of my works will add to more over the long run. I'll polish them up a bit and make them better. My readers will receive value. That's what I like. I hope they will enjoy what they read.

I have many stories in anthologies with other Presses than Blazing Owl Press. They will remain where they are. They have good homes there.

Quality is always better than quantity, I believe. I have many new novels coming out as well as collections, and I want my readers to enjoy all of them.

Happy reading.

I WILL NO LONGER PURCHASE CRAP - BY TERRI DELCAMPO



http://www.writenowwithterridelcampo.blogspot.com/2016/02/i-will-no-longer-purchase-crap.html
Terri DelCampo makes some interesting points in her post I WILL NO LONGER PURCHASE CRAP on her Write Now with Terri DelCampo blog. She and I purchase quite a few books written by many authors. There are some that, quite frankly, don't live up to expectations. We both agree that the free samples on Amazon tell a prospective reader a lot about a book. If there are mistakes at the beginning of a book, then you may rest assured they will be scattered around elsewhere.

This is not a tell all piece. No books or names will be mentioned. Also, bear in mind that no one is perfect. One can find errors in books from the Big Boys as well as self-pubbed and small press books. Don't let awards throw you off, either. I have read Bram Stoker winning books that I thought were awful. Personal tastes. However, one had a forward done from an award winning author that was filled with grammatical errors.Yikes!

Go to the link above and see if you don't agree with the other comments Terri makes. Please, authors, use the tools at your disposal.

USING TWITTER INCREASES YOUR VISIBILITY AND BOOK SALES


https://twitter.com/
I suppose saying that Twitter increases visibility and book sales is a bold statement. Could be. But it's true. I keep records of all my interactions online and check the stats regularly. Since I have gotten more involved with Twitter, the more I see it as a great tool for authors.

Now, I am also a firm believer in not taking a hard sell approach. I never hammer anything into peoples' heads. I get online, talk about other people for the most part, and things come back to me. Twitter, when used in that manner, gets your name out there to many people. You retweet another author's tweet and people are appreciative. I try to personalize everything with a thank you when someone tweets about me or my books. I tell my followers about them and I try to keep in touch with them.

I am making new friends all the time on Twitter. Spreading the word about others, spreads your good name. Do it in the spirit it is intended. Social interaction is just that: social. Get involved. Tweet. Retweet. Copy your links to your tweets and spread them around with other posts. Put a tweet button on your website so people can see what you have tweeted. It's easy to do. Think of Twitter as being mini-information-bites. Seek out other people who like what you like. Common interests generate a lot of attention. I am a horror author, but that's not my entire life. I have other interests. So do other folks.

So, my friends, get involved, have some fun, and meet some great new people. You'll be glad you did.

What kind of toys live within your children's toybox? If you haven't checked lately, this might be a good time to do so, but make sure the light is on and you're not alone. You're not afraid of toys? Read Blazin' Toybox, by Terri DelCampo and Blaze McRob, and your mind might very well be changed.

The toys in these eleven twisted and horrific tales are begging you to come and play with them. Don't keep them waiting.

CROSS LINKING WITHOUT BEING SPAMMY




All authors look for ways to spread the word about themselves and their books, but not even your most ardent fan wants to be assaulted by constant posts and in-your-face requests to buy your book. What are some ways to put your name out there without being a pain in the butt? My plan is to tell people more about other authors. On my websites, I give folks interesting tid-bits about Women In Horror, new books other authors have out or on the radar, and more. In addition to that, I give out some of my little tips, such as this one, and spread them around.

I write these posts on my websites, Tweet them, and share them to my Facebook personal and Author pages. A lot of times, I will post links to Twitter from my website and pin them to my Twitter page so they stay on top for at least a day. This way folks will see these posts first when they look at my Twitter page. This increases retweet opportunities. I've been keeping track of what happens when I do this and the results speak for themselves. My website explodes from people viewing the posts. For example: if I post a Woman In Horror article for one author and do the other things I mentioned, not only does that author get hundreds of views, but a lot of people will scroll down and read the posts about other Women In Horror they might have missed. The numbers for everyone go up on a constant basis.

How does this help me? Well, I enjoy telling the world about other authors. That's my main goal. However, if anyone wants to see what I have written they have merely to view my side-bars. I'm a bit laid back when it comes to thumping my own chest. I have posts out when a new book comes out and all, but I believe that if my books are well written, edited, and formatted ( with Terri DelCampo, my lovely wife, handling the latter two jobs ) then I have done my job. I do spread the word about my books, however, it's never a constant barrage of buy-my-book stuff.

Also, it doesn't hurt to post a book cover, Amazon link, and a short description on Twitter, featuring any of your books. Visuals look really cool on Twitter. This way people will see your book cover. You can do the same thing for book trailers, which I love, by the way. Spread them around, however, so you don't go overboard once again.

So, if you inter-face with others and spread their message to the masses, you will help out the entire family of authors. Even yourself.

BABY FOX - BY BLAZE MCROB



Since I can't let Terri DelCampo have all the fun with poems, here's one I did a while back. I hope you enjoy it. This is suitable for children of all ages.

Baby Fox

The baby fox leaps in the air,
Intent on play, without a care,
For mother fox is watching near,
So her sweet son should have no fear.

With brother fox and sister too,
He jumps and skips 'mongst tall grass dew.
Up in the air his red coat shines,
The sun not blocked by distant pines.

This little vale does care for all.
The trees around create a wall,
And food and water here abound.
From outside world there is no sound.

The little one now needs to rest,
For he is tired from all his jest.
Yet into nest he does not go,
For high above, white clouds do show.

They dance about with changing shapes,
And first appear as lambs with capes.
The fluffy lambies dance about,
And cause the little kits to shout.

And weary though they all might be,
They mimic lambs and dance with glee.
But soon their fluffy friends depart,
And other shapes before them dart.

Animals, all shapes and sizes,
Weave about and leave their prizes.
High above in deep blue wonder,
Fleecy clouds do show their splendor.

But now the time has come for sleep,
And mother fox does take them deep,
Into the den which is their home,
Where she has built a safety dome.

So little fox does nod and yawn,
For in his bed he'll sleep 'til dawn.
Brother, sister, and his mother,
Gathered round with love will smother.

DRINK COFFEE AND WRITE LIKE BLAZE MCROB - JUST SAYING




The Oatmeal shows us some very important facts about coffee. For example: where it is grown, what color the beans actually are, where the term "cup of Joe" came from, and more. It does not explain, however, why people in Wyoming make fun of me - a transplanted Jersey boy -  when I say coffee. They are rude people and must be killed off in my next novel.

Bad news: I moved to Georgia and they make fun of my New Jersey accent here too when I say coffee. More people to kill off; more novels to write.

What is this doing here? It's pretty obvious to me. All great authors drink coffee. Go to The Oatmeal and read this and other posts. Tell them Blaze sent you. And yes, I do drink coffee.

Format: Kindle Edition
Cancer is frightening enough, and this anthology is definitely well on the way to achieving its title—and scaring cancer to death! As with any anthology, I enjoyed some tales more than others, but recommend them all. Who knew there were so many takes on Zombies? Or mystic cancer treatments? Or survival...and death?

We’ve all been touched by cancer in some way and these stories contain characters to cheer and cry for. At times, they’ll make your heart hurt. But don’t worry...there’s a zombie around the next corner! This volume is a must read for any horror fan.

By fluffyredfox on May 9, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
All the author dedications are heart breaking, so many people’s lives are touched by the dreaded big C. Here is to finding a cure, fast.

Z Children by Eli Constant: It is the start of the zompoc and Suz, Dad and the twins must make it out of town to their boat whilst dodging the zombies who are primarily children.
The reasons for the start of the zompoc are really well laid out, the back story made me care for this little family so the ending was a real shock.
I really enjoyed this writing style so another author to be on the lookout for.

Of the Dead by Alyn Day: a toughened foraging unit comes across a child “zed”; or is she just a wild child trying to survive?
As many of the unit are mourning fathers the emotions brought to the surface on the trip back to base and the scientists are really well played out by the author.
I love the twisted endings, so not expected. Another fantastic writer.

Memories by Heath Stallcup: the author physically brings you along for the ride on this tale as he drags you around a research facility whilst he unloads his story upon you.
The sordid tale carried on around me and I was so absorbed that the ending, again, gave me a real thump to the heart.
HS has managed to pull off a spectacular PoV perspective with not even the slightest error. Not surprisingly he is already one of my favourite authors.

Project Arizona by Greg Carrico: poor Henry, he is a sad and misplaced man in a long line of hidden experiments, of which the author keeps us in the dark about.
But the telltale zombie theme is there, along with a strange flensing obsession.
A strange little late that has an even weirder ending. Not sure what I read but I really liked it!

Just Life by T.Fox Dunham: “dragging its colon behind like a dead snake” – has to be my favourite line from the whole book, it made me feel a little nauseous and smile at the same time.
Robert, the main character, has just recovered from a strange surgery where his tumour went wild and attacked a surgeon!
Now Retribution has begun which looks suspiciously like a George Romero film set.
Essentially this is a beautiful love story another really fantastic ending.

Choices by Claire C. Riley: Adam had completed his cancer treatment but now all Hell has broken loose and he is unable to find out his final test results.
He risks life and limb to try and find his medical notes but thankfully there is Old Yella to help him out.
The moral of the story seems a little undone at the end but wow I really enjoyed the characters in this one.

Dying Days Mortality by Armand Rosamila: two good men are trying to do right by their dying wives.
A dilemma is set before one of them and a decision is made.
The emotions run really high in this book and AR does not shy away from rubbing your face right in there.

Gift Wrapped Box by Catie Rhodes: Kathleen just keeps getting more Hell heaped upon her as she falls for some mumbo jumbo about a cure for her terminal cancer, which actually turns out to be soul eaters!
Not to mention her wicked neighbor is trying to kill her kitten.
A blast from the past and she has a chance to put all things right and as she faces down a massive demon she gets more than she hoped for.
A sad but brilliant ending, really enjoyed the complexity of the story and certainly nothing run of the mill.

Tunnel by J. Thorn: not sure about this story as I really disliked one of the three characters and the other two were just meh for me. Plus the story never really went anywhere IMO.

One Lonely Night by Chantal Boudreaux: Quinn is dying from cancer, but all he desires is death by zombie.
With all the pain surrounding him he is set on his mission and CB does nothing to shy you away from being witness to this painfully honest tale.

Sweet Release by Mark Tufo: Ted’s life is over; his body just needs to catch up.
Kindness seems to be lacking all around him and just one small moment is all he wants.
The tenderness with which this tale is written really made my heart ache.

Uncle by Michael James Macfarland: crippled Uncle has a secret that he brought back from the war.
His constant care is sucking the life from those around him.
The slow but steady build up gives a good indication of what the end will be but it’s still a cracker.

The Legacy by Julianne Snow: they say when you get a terminal diagnosis you begin the grieving process for your own loss of life, one stage of that is anger.
This is the tale of a chap who gets stuck at that stage. Of all these little stories, this one really scared me.

The Judas Contingent by Blaze McRob: my heart bleeds for this wonderfully strong and brave man (the author not the fiction – of all the dedications and bios this one really touched me).
Revenge is the main drive for this story, a well written piece that left me wondering just who are the good guys.

My Name is Charles by TW Brown: what’s worse than dying cancer in the zompoc? Adding dementia into the mix.
Poor fella, having to relive the intial horror over and over again. Fantastic idea with some great writing.

Survival by Rhonda Hopkins: from a bad start where they are captured for who knows what reason Dana and her twin, Sarah, manage a dramatic escape with the help of Meredith. Shame the poor girl is suffering the after effects of chemo treatment.
As the struggle to survive in this new world of horrors occurs the relationship and animosity of work colleagues surfaces adding that emotional twist to the story.
Whilst gore and horror is not lacking in this well written tale it is the emotions that play front and center.

The whole book has a well put together feel to it. I do hope this continues to raise lots of money so that “we” really can Scare Cancer to Death.
