The Joy of Writing

Major revision of Tipping Point coming soon.

Hello and welcome to the lair of TW.  Yes, it is a lair…Why do you ask?

From this point on the planet, I can love whom I love.  I don’t hate but I kill with exemption from the laws of the land.  From my little den, I can blow up worlds, or create them.  Reprimanding bad boys or girls is a pastime with which I take great delight in doing.

The target of chastisement is as naughty or as nice as I choose to be at that moment.

Writers live in our own little world and that is a good thing.  When you walk into my dungeon, you can see the clean shiny plasticized beds with chains and cuffs ready to restrain you.  When you see the whips crops and other things on the walls your bottom has a tinge of pain that travels through your body to that sexual organ that sits atop your shoulders.  The brain is the most powerful sexual organ of them all, and most are clueless.  They must be taught.

As writers, we can take you there.  On your kindle or nook, you escape the doldrums of your nine-to-five world.  You and others, join me.  The journeys are as real as you want them to be. While it is just you and me lying in your bed, you search the crevasses of my mind looking for some love that you are missing.  Maybe it is an adventure you seek.  There on those pages, we take flight to lands unknown to humanity.

Have you been naughty?  We can take care of that too.  Through Tiffany in that reform school, we can modify your behavior, in the safety of your own world. Password protecting your E-reader is a great idea if you don’t want intruders in our world.

Maybe, just maybe you are tired of the politics of this realm and are ready to leave it. Don leaves this world while on the ISS orbiting it.  Can you imagine what he must have been thinking as the Starduster sucked the ISS into one of its smaller cargo bays?

If that were you would anal probing cross your mind?  Would you be like “oh hell no, where is the gun?”

Maybe you would be, I can handle this…

Don learns much about himself and humanity in Saga of the Starduster, which is still my best seller.

I have over 32 novels selling around the globe.  Some more than others.  If you are following me on this blog, you know Tipping Point is going through a re-write.

Here is the skinny on that novel.

One Friday afternoon I am flying back from the west coast.  The sun is at our tail, and there on the ground are many wind turbines churning away.

The idea of “free” energy hit me. That evening with a glass of merlot, Tipping Point was born and published complete with cover art.

I gave it away on Kindle Unlimited to entertain you who follow me.

Joining yet another writers group, they bludgeoned me over those ten thousand words.  One even chastised me telling me “publish nothing without having it…” you get the picture.

With my novels selling around the globe I took what she said about half seriously.  This work was never meant to be literary genius.  I wrote it in three hours for Pete Sakes.  I wanted to start the conversation about climate change, and what man is doing to the earth with these changes.  That is why I gave it away.

One thing that sprang forth that got my attention is that many fell in love with Sam.

“I love Sam too.”

Sam deserves better than ten thousand words.

“I took that to heart.”

On my computer is a novel sitting at 86K words that is the new version of Tipping Point.

Instead of three hours of Merlot writing, I have about three hundred hours in it to date.  The good news is that if you already bought or read for free the 10 K word version, this will be free to you.  I will leave it on Kindle unlimited too.  This is a boon for Jeff Bezos and not me but here is the deal I did not realize until speaking with an agent.

If you publish on Amazon, you keep the rights to your work.  Agents are trolling Amazon looking for new authors.

The plan is to give this away for next to nothing, allowing Jeff to come up with more money for his divorce.

You the readers can either purchase it for $3 or read for free on Kindle Unlimited.  If an agent finds this, it won’t last long.  My beta readers love it…

Now you can climb aboard Air Force One, with Sam and the President.   Take a world tour on the taxpayer’s dime while keeping up with their awkward love story. You too can meet the Queen and experience pomp and circumstance.  As you also fall in love with the characters, see if you can follow with her scientific logic on her diagnosis.

Since this is a “give away price,” I would love feedback.

Here is the deal… What is published is before I went cray-cray on it.  It is a fast read with errors and fun things that are no longer in this version.  The new version has a dusting of fifty shades in it.

Wait, how can I worry about the world slowing down, and now I am spanking someone???

Yes my pets, yes indeed, my trusty hand is once again looking for a bottom to warm up, through the literary process.  Will it be yours?  Have you been naughty?

Follow along so you will know when your carriage to my lair is here.

Much Love -TW

Tipping Point

How do you get something for nothing?

Tipping Point

How do you get something for nothing?

As a person who understands physics, I can tell you that you don’t!

To obtain energy; fuel of some sort must be spent.

Targeting the moon with a laser for Nasa is an easy feat.  When you want to measure the distance from the earth to the moon you bounce a laser off a mirror placed on the moon, calculate the amount of time it takes to return and Viola!  You know the distance from the earth to the moon.

When Nasa could not hit the target, a red flag went off around the world.

Samantha, a genius in her own right, ask the question, “how do you get something for nothing?”

With tens of thousands of windmills extracting energy from the wind, she asked the question, could these be slowing down the earth causing the weather patterns to shift?”

Believe it or not, this is a romance!

Yes, it is an enjoyable Sci-Fi adventure of the likes you might see on the SCI-FI channel right after Sharknado, but it is that kind of story.  Many of my readers have mentioned that the SCI-FI channel should make a movie out of it.

If it ever happens maybe I will get to write the script!

I have been thinking about writing a screenplay to see if it improves my writing, has any of you done that?   With a screenplay, you have to think of every detail, which I think might improve one’s writing.

Someone told me that there is software designed for that purpose.

Anyway, Tipping Point is a fun lunchtime read on Kindle Unlimited, or you can support yours truly by actually spending a couple of bucks.  Think about it, for half a cup of coffee you can be entertained.

Tipping Point is a young adult kind of book with a tiny bit of implied naughtiness.  A tame version of my usual reads.
