I recently finished my latest book “Must Have Been Another Earthquake, Kids: A Short, Honest Guide to Full-Time RV Living with Kids.” I had to work out a few kinks with Amazon distribution, but the print version and Kindle version are both live.

What’s the book about?

After three years of living in an RV with our three children, Shelly and I wanted to share our experiences. We had a lot of Read More...

Dec 22, 2013 | One Comment

This past year was a significant deviation from our previous few years. Here’s a quick and dirty review:

I worked for UPS as a seasonal worker (actually last holiday season), Read More...

Book Review: “Got to Live” by Jay Danek

Nov 8, 2013 | No Comments

Many months ago, Jay sent me a copy of his ultraruning book “Got to Live.” Given that I more or less stopped running, I never quite got around to writing the review. Honestly, I had forgotten about it until I started the tentative planning for a benji [my new favorite term for hundred milers] next year.

Traditional Publishing Versus Self-Publishing: Which is Better to Spread Your Ideas?

May 4, 2013 | No Comments

So you want to see your ideas in print, huh?

Years ago, you pretty much needed to go through a traditional publishing house. Self-publishing, while theoretically possible, required a ton of difficult work. A prospective writer would have to recruit editors, typesetters, graphic designers, and printers to produce the book. Once produced, the writer then had to tackle distribution and marketing.
