Here is an interview I did with a man whom I admire tremendously for his mission and the way he dedicates his time and energy to said mission.
1. First of all, tell us a bit about yourself.
Born in Douglas, Georgia in 1950. The one sibling I had passed away due to a heart attack. 6 years in the United States Navy. Two children, a son and a daughter. Divorced for 11 years and we are friends. 24/7 caregiver for my 89 year old mom.
2. You state your mission as “raising awareness concerning Alzheimer’s.” Why?
I raise awareness because my dad died with Alzheimer’s in 2001. I know that before the government will spend the dollars that “experts” think is needed, they need to know about the problem.
3. What would you like the government to know? Continue reading
Mirror, Mirror…Well, Really, Mirror, Lorna
I have two traits (well, a lot more than two) that are going to get me in trouble or going to make me famous (rich would be good, too). The jury is still out, but the “trouble” verdict is looking most likely. I know this because I am neither famous nor rich. Smart, huh? Continue reading
Every once in a while I feel like doing things differently on this blog. And so I decided to interview Karen Robiscoe, an avid blogger and author I’ve come to know through the WordPress Blog-o-sphere. *looks worriedly toward crashing sounds emanating from the kitchen*
Of course, I wasn’t really expecting to find the lady on my doorstep this morning, but I have to admire her get-up-and-go. She certainly got up and went *winces at the sound of shattering glass * and who knew she even had a passport? Continue reading
Okay, so I know I haven’t been updating this blog lately. But I have some pretty good excuses, such as:
1. My computer is a piece of trash. It’s either gonna die soon or explode. Of course, if it explodes it also dies so…
2. I’m working on the magazine.
So, here’s the thing. I had something like an epiphany a week or so ago and decided that each issue of irevuo magazine is going to center around a certain subject… some’ like that. This month’s topic is self-publishing, and I’d like to ask you (you being my fellow indie writers) three simple questions. Continue reading
Hi everyone. Today you get to meet another member of irevuo‘s crew. His name is Adrian Gabor, and he’s the guy who designed our logo. Also, I’ve worked with him on a number of projects along the years, including a gaming magazine, a movie review website, and some other stuff.
He’s also a great photographer. You can check out his stuff here. Continue reading
One of the aspects that have changed because of the self-publishing revolution is that writers are able to make art for art’s sake. As a self-published writer, you’re free to write and publish whatever you want. You make your own editorial agenda.
But the thing is that there are some writers out there, me included, who like to write in more than one genre. I’ve written stories that range from Contemporary Fiction to Magical Realism, Science Fiction, Absurd Literature. But this can be tricky when it comes to finding an audience.
Since I have yet to self-publish something that departs from Mainstream Literature, I invited a fellow self-publisher, Katie Jennings, to tell us a bit about her own experiences with writing and publishing novels in different genres. Continue reading
