An Important Message for all Danny The Dog Fans.

I AM IN SHOCK! I AM DEVASTATED . . . I AM ACTUALLY IN TEARS!

DANNY, THANKS FOR ALL THE MEMORIES I HAVE OF YOUR INCREDIBLE WRITING TALENTS. WHEN I NEED A LAUGH, I WILL READ YOUR POSTS, FORTUNATELY, THEY ARE SAVED ON MY COMPUTER IN YOUR VERY OWN FILE FOLDER.

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

In case you were wondering why Danny The Dog wasn’t making his usual visit to respond to all your comments under his post yesterday, I regret to tell you that it was his last posting.

Danny died last Tuesday (18th July 2017)

His human, Andrew Joyce sent me the following eulogy:

My name is Andrew.

Until recently, I had the distinct honor of cohabitating with a true wit and an all-around good guy, Danny the Dog.

But now that the summer’s gone and all the flowers are dying—when all the sunshine was in shadow—he had to leave me. Oh, Danny Boy, I love you so. Sleep in peace until I come to you.

Now that I’ve plagiarized the song Danny Boy, I’ll have a go at Shakespeare.

Friends, bloggers, lovers of Danny, lend me your ears.
I come to praise Danny, not to bury him.
The bad stuff dogs do…

Danny Extorts Andrew…

DANNY, I counted TEN (10) BARKS before you convinced Andrew YOU knew there was at least ONE (1) MORE Turkey Slice! You sure have trained him well. Have a great Tuesday.

Danny Extorts Andrew

Good morning, everybody. It is I, your favorite dog, Danny the Dog. At least I’m your favorite dog that pens a monthly epistle here on Chris’ blog.

I write about my life, my loves, and my losses—although I do not lose very often. Today, I’m here to tell you about one of my wins. And of course, it’s a win against my arch-nemesis, Andrew, my human.

For those of you who follow my exploits on a monthly basis, you know of my love of turkey slices. How every morning when Andrew and I come in from our walk, he’ll give me a few slices. And you’ll also know that we live on a boat. I only mention that because it has a bearing on my story.

So here’s the set-up. Boats have cockpits—it’s the place you steer from. There are also seats and/or benches where people (or…

What Makes a $100k Author?

FOOD FOR THOUGHT. . . PLANS FOR ACTION! GREAT ATICLE. THANKS TO CHRIS, THE STORY READING APE.

Nicholas C. Rossis

written word media logo | From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's booksLast month, Written Word Media shared the results of yet another extensive author survey they’ve run, to tease out the strategies and tactics successful authors were using to achieve their success. The survey compared authors making over $100,000 in a single year vs. authors who earn less than $500 / month from book sales. They call these two groups 100Kers and Emerging Authors. Approximately 11% authors surveyed fell into the 100K bucket, so it’s a pretty exclusive club but also one that is within reach.

The results are well worth checking out in full, but here’s a brief summary you may find of interest:

1. Success Takes Time

The vast majority of 100kers– almost 90% –have been writing more than 3 years, compared to only 59% of Emerging Authors. On average, that means 100kers have just been at this longer. Experience counts for a lot and emerging authors shouldn’t get…
