Writer's Group will become a writer's group. At the moment there are three writers, myself, Kyle Randolph and Bill Heath. Bill writes only non-fiction, while Kyle and I are primarily fiction writers.

Bill's first book, So You Want to Start a Business, has been published to Amazon Kindle.

Kyle will publish the third volume of his semi-autobiographical Life of Kyle, in about one week.

Retutrning to writing

Since early this year I have been very ill. The details don’t matter; for the past four months I’ve been unable to walk, speak, write, think, breathe, stay awake. I’ve shut down my management consultancy and transferred all clients to another former top-tier global management consultant who works with small businesses. I’m keeping the writing going, but with little production.

The website will change to include three authors. Kyle Randolph is working on Volume three of the Life of Kyle series; Bill Heath is finishing two business books; and I’m working on half a dozen efforts. At the moment I’m in the hospital, awaiting brain surgery on Monday.

Business Start-Up Book in draft

The book on starting a business is done in first draft. I still need to add graphics, have it edited and proofread, choose a title and convert for publication as an e-book. Perhaps by March.

I discovered decades ago that questions are far more valuable than answers. The right answer to the wrong question is worthless. After working in and on startups for more than half a century, I know what the right questions are. The answers will be different for everyone. They have to be, because the startup is your business and no one else's.

There are four proven ways to get rich quick: 

Sell stuff:


 Create a Get Rich Quick Scam

Starting your own business probably won’t make you rich quick, and might not make you rich slowly, either. It will be the most difficult and rewarding thing you ever do, and is the best way to achieve socioeconomic mobility and realize the American dream.By answering a few dozen questions, you're on your way.

As the Word Turns

I’m dealing with the normal pressure hydrocephalus as best I can, and am looking forward to surgery to restore most of my functionality and slow the degeneration. I’ve been able to get some work done on So, You Want to Start a Business and it’s nearly a third complete. The freelancing book is mostly unorganized notes right now, and I’m hoping to enlist a co-author.

I have to take a break from Did You Ever See Allegro? Because I need to re-read it from the beginning to catch up. I’ve got about thirty pages of notes for Volume Four in the Finding Series, and have outlined maybe a quarter of the first volume in a new series, Frankenbuzz Detective Agency. First book is a case involving a luxury yacht charter company and inexplicably dead passengers. It will take place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and aboard an assortment of luxury yacht charters by various people and groups.
