If you write a story today, and you get up tomorrow and start another story, all the expertise that you put into the first story doesn't transfer over automatically to the second story. You're always starting at the bottom of the mountain. So you're always becoming a writer. You're never really arriving.             EDWARD P. JONES

This is a very humbling statement.  :)

What THEY Say


Many Times I Have Crossed Paths With An Awesome Quote By Robert Brault. Today, I want to give you that very opportunity. Enjoy. :)

“Ah, my wife. If life hands her a lemon, she makes lemonade. And if life hands her a rotten potato, don't drink the lemonade."

"The advantage of growing up with siblings is that you become very good at fractions."

"Sometimes I think I'm slowly losing my mind, but, then, I'm an optimist."

“A friend is someone who, when you're lost and adrift, shows up to tell you you've been found alive and well."

"I never remember a dream, which is a good thing, because otherwise I'd be wondering which of my memories are memories of dreams."

My Little Corner of the Intertubes

Hello there A Lotta Books readers, I am Willseyeview and on Thursdays I will be here to bring you whatever random thoughts that might be floating around in my head. As of this moment I am not really sure what it is that will be appearing here on a weekly basis. I do have a few ideas on what I would like to do, but nothing is in stone. But that is okay, like this site, this will be a work in progress. Hopefully we will all have a fun time, whatever it is that I do plan to write about.

I do know one thing, none of this would be possible without my friend and writing partner Michala. If she had not placed that ad on Craiglist (hey Craiglist if you need anyone to do advertising for you, give us a call) looking for a co-author I would not be here right now writing this blog post. Because of her I have spent the last several months working on the most exciting project that I have been involved in. We are rounding the last turn and the finish line is in sights. And I promise you all this will be one of the best fantasy novels you have ever read.

As she stared into the mirror, a chill ran down her spine, as Amy look upon a mirror image that was not her own.
