‘The Sun Singer’s Travels’ Moves to WordPress
This blog began in 2004 on Blogger when the first edition of my contemporary fantasy adventure novel The Sun Singer was published.
This blog also begins today, October 3, 2012, because I’m ready for a new look, better formatting options and, truth be told, more exciting posts.
And, as long as we’re telling the truth here—in this post, at least—I’ll confess that I probably still own the Blackwatch flannel shirt I wore in this picture. The jeans no longer fit and/or just became too shabby to wear out in public.
That picture was taken by a photographer with a rocking chair and a barn door set when the first edition of The Sun Singer was published. By way of introduction here, I’ll say that since then, I moved on to many new pairs of jeans, a second edition along with three other novels, including last year’s fantasy adventure, Sarabande.
View of the World
I can sum up the basic philosophy behind my novels and my blog posts by taking the easy way out with a Joseph Campbell quotation: “If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”
Sure, that sounds impractical, totally unrealistic and—using an old-fashioned phrase–a rather goody-two-shoes approach to life. I won’t try to convince you otherwise. Nonetheless, I see the world that way, and that means you’ll probably be hearing more about hero’s and heroine’s journeys, magic and the paranormal, and other similar notions in upcoming posts.
So there it is: a short and totally unplanned introduction to the re-launch of my author’s weblog.
I hope you’ll stop by from time to time.
