Hi everybody, glad to see I had some people read the blog so far and I am happy to return the favor. I am just about done with my novel "Scammer." It's about a man named Jeff who runs a ponzi scheme and is visited by one of his supposed investors who has discovered his investment company is not on the up and up. Throughout the story, other investors learn of his deception and the story reveals the consequences of his actions. He entire life is effected by his actions from his family, friends and company.
I have been reading alot of stories by indie authors and I have found them to be quite good. It amazes me how good these writers are and I look forward to reading them in the future. I also encourage you to check out these blogs that I have been checking out.

I believe that social networking is part of making a name for yourself in this ebook world. Getting your name out there is important, but I believe that it should be genuine, not simply for the sake of selling books. I think that's tacky and petty. I hope to build relationships with these authors as I stated before,"we are all in this together."
Years ago, you had a better chance of hitting lotto( well maybe not!) than getting published. Even if the writing is spot on, some editors wont give you the time of day since you arent represented by an agent.
It doesnt seem fair. But now with the introduction of ereaders, writers have more opportunities than ever.
It's nice that you can sample a chapter of an author or even pick up some for free or for .99 cents.
In this day and age, saving a few bucks on reading material is key and offers readers more chances to purchase more material.
Well enough rambling for today. Hope all is well with everyone and any comments, suggestions please let me know.
Thank you for reading-------anthony
