Book Publishing Secrets: A Conversation with David S. Atkinson

We’re talking to authors from all walks of life about their experiences in publishing their book.  Some have smooth paths, some rocky, but they all share a common goal – to see their name on the cover of their creation.  It’s interesting to read what path they decided to take to get there and my guest today is here to tell everyone what he/she did in order to make it all happen so that other writers will learn a little something from the experience. 


Today we are talking to…

The Stranger (Part 2)

I looked to my left and to my right thinking he couldn't possibly have been talking to me.  A man that looked like that, well, they don't usually talk to women who, well, looked like I did.

"Where were you headed?  I honestly don't mind the detour.  I'm in no hurry, in fact, I really hate going to these stupid parties.  I'm no good at mingling," he said with a smile noticing my hesitation.

I cleared my throat and tried to gain my composure.  This was not like me to even be…

Playing With Reality- An Interactive Performance Ensemble!

I am a part of a NYC-based interactive performance ensemble, Playing With Reality.  We want to remind people the power of play and to empower through interactive experiences. For the past 2 years, our focus has been theater, inviting audience volunteers to become the protagonist of a fictional story created and lived on the spot. It’s been life-changing for some. And just plain fun for others. …

The Great and Godly Game of Hide and Seek

Why is it we all seem to struggle so?  Why so much dissatisfaction? We never seem quite satisfied with who we are, with what life brings, with where we are in ourselves.  It’s almost as if, were we satisfied, we fear there’d be no more reason for us to live; as if the Creator might descend on some big burst of light and pluck us straight away:

“This one’s done! Beam him up, Scotty.”

I’ve had that bizarre fear myself, the fear that if I allow myself to feel satisfied, happy…

An introduction to my e-book The Eight of Swords

I wrote The Eight of Swords towards the end of last year.  It was a story burning a hole in my head from the very moment I had the idea.  I'm not a patient soul so despite the fact I'm supposed to be rewriting a novel I wrote years ago, I started on the short story idea as soon as I had some spare time. 

It turned out well, so I decided to give it a go as an e-book and published it via Amazon…

The Book I've been Reading

“Edgar Allan Poe Complete Tales and Poems” is what I’ve been reading lately. Another eighteenth birthday gift it contains 73 short stories and 48 poems. So far I’ve read four of the short stories so I’ve barely managed to scratch the surface, but I think it’s a must have: Edgar Allen Poe is a great writer and he writes on a variety of subjects, and has a vast vocabulary, it keeps me thinking and I do love it. So: “Edgar Allan Poe Complete Tales and Poems” not for the simpleminded or the… Continue
