‘My Answer to a Critic’ (2013)

Writers are naturally a little thin-skinned about their work. Your book isn’t going to amount to anything if you don’t pour your heart into it.

But to criticize my books for passing on secret Calvinist messages–that’s a bit too much.

“I’m not going to review this book because it contains an opinion other than mine!” All right, fair enough: there are lots of books I won’t review because their messages are obnoxious to me. But secret messages–no. That’s just silly.

The fantasy world of Bell Mountain is inhabited by people who never heard of Protestants or Catholics and have troubles of their own to think about.


Hey, Liberals! Dig My Silver Medal (2014)

Nice medal, isn’t it?

I had just won a Global E-Book Award for my second Bell Mountain book, The Cellar Beneath the Cellar. A lefty loon on a major leftid website attacked me by name–and my sales went up.

Try as I might, I can’t remember who it was that attacked me. I think it might’ve been someone on the Huffington Post, but I could easily be wrong. I don’t read any of those sites.

I still haven’t figured out why they would even bother to smack me down. I guess it’s because even the microscopic, inconsequential opposition I provide is poison to them.

Just now my sales figures are about as low as they’ve ever been. Why does Far Left Crazy care what any of us says?

It’s as if one stray mote of freedom mars their entire landscape.


‘I’ve Won Another Award!’ (2014)

There it is–the silver medal.

It’s nice to get some recognition, now and then. In 2014 The Cellar Beneath the Cellar, Book No. 2 of my Bell Mountain series, won a silver medal in the Global E-Book Awards.

The year before, Bell Mountain itself won a bronze.

See? Official and bona fide proof that my books are worth your time! I’m sure these awards aren’t like the Oscars, where they sometimes give Best Picture to the worst picture. If you haven’t read ’em yet… well, c’mon!
