When June comes dancing o’er the death of May, 
With scarlet roses tinting her green breast, 
And mating thrushes ushering in her day, 
And Earth on tiptoe for her golden guest.

A Memory Of June – Poem by Claude McKay

Welcome to June ….
named after the Roman goddess Juno, the goddess of marriage and the wife of the supreme deity Jupiter.

After a trying Spring in Snottsdale, AZ. (is like California without the beaches and Vegas without the casinos…and well the weather is hotter no…deadlier, the dust storms like sandblasting, the rude drives, the invasion of illegals…. absolutely chock full of fakes, losers, liars, cheaters, and well $30,000 a year millionaires. They bought homes during the housing boom using crazy nothing down interest only loans too stupid to realize in 3 years their payments would fully adjust which is why you now see more homes for sale and in foreclosure in this city than any other city in the Phoenix metro area. Their leased wanna be Hummer H2’s and BMW 3 series are all getting repoed….which is also why you see so many stores closing in this part of town. Not to mention the alarming number of homeless flying a sign at every major intersection, the mentally ill with plastic shopping bags on their feet, the plethora of crackheads sleeping in their cars in the Walmart parking lots. It’s surreal. Like life on another planet in a Robert Heinlein novel.

I am ready to get back to work on a new series of techno-thrillers, Yeti, Zero, Panapsermia while trying to edit and rewrite earlier works like Cure, Morphed, Crooked Island.

In the online publishing business- I find I have bitten off more than I can chew and find myself in the business of trying to hire professional help to help me sort through all the details to get my work professionally edited and published. Most vanity or independent publishing companies (they no longer call themselves “vanity” because of the negative connotations though really that’s what they still are) are greedy to a fault and want a minimum of $5000 which is absurd if your ebook sells enough copies to earn $5000. The going royalty rate for ebook authors these days is like a $1.62 per unit sold.

No one mentioned when I began writing ebooks in 2002 that I would be running my own publishing company because that’s essentially what your brand is. No wonder the Big 5 used to take 70-percent of authors profits.

But never fear, those of you eagerly awaiting Kilburn Hall books on Kindle Unlimited where you can borrow or buy a copy, I have found a great company in Australia,  Polgarus Studio’s and am eagerly working with them and anxious to see results of our first collaboration, The Killing of A Robin.

Word Aversion…

Gee, if Business Insider hadn’t told us we would have never known that the word “moist” was the most hated word in the English language. In their opinion.
There has to be a better use of corporate dollars than this idiotic nonsense. ASSHATS.

For all you conspiracy theorists: Hitler’s teeth analysis dispel myths of Nazi leader’s survival. Hitler did not make it to a secret Nazi base in Antartica.
