Here I am, dragging myself into the world of blogging, kicking and screaming... wondering if anyone has even the slightest interest in reading about what I think or believe. Yes, I have resisted the advice of fellow writers to start a blog for some time now. So am I doing this to sell more books, or because I want the world to know what I stand for? Honestly, I'd like to sell more books (Yup, I'm one of those honest guys). But if I can share insights with readers and a handful of fans about how I arrived at the plots and characters in my books, and maybe even get some feedback on the direction I want to go with future books, maybe this blogging thing will be okay. In fact, I think I'm starting to warm up to it already.
I have written 2 books, both detective mystery/thrillers:
"Dangerous DNA" is available on Amazon.com, and anyone can download and read the first 3 chapters free by visiting my web site at http://www.rnrpublishingco.com/. There are plenty of comments posted on Amazon and on my web site, and all I can say is that it has been warmly received.
"The Moral Mafia" will be published in the first quarter of 2010, and likewise, I will make the first 3 chapters available to anyone who would like to read it.
I welcome reader comments and criticism, and I am happy to discuss most any topic, even if it has nothing to do with my work. I do ask two things: (1) that we keep all dialog civil and (2) that we keep it clean for the most part, (let's not use language beyond a PG-13 rating). That's it, Any topic is fair game. I look forward to finding out more about my readers, my friends, and maybe myself as well. -- Dan
