Zero Followers

I have no followers.

I've thought about this blog for over a year. No kidding, a year and then some. I resisted, thinking why in the hell does the world need another blogger? It doesn't. But then I've things to promote and I've got things on my mind. So, here I am.

The novel made me do it, if I'm honest. I published The Discovery of Socket Greeny, a YA sci-fi novel. I'm looking at different ways to get the word out.

The Discovery of Socket Greeny

I'm not thrilled about promotion, especially self-promotion. Have you seen the latest Kiss commercial for Dr. Pepper? Self-serving and so not rock and roll. Paul Stanley with the thumbs up, "Detroit Rock City, and drink Dr. Pepper!"

Holy crap.


But they're rich, so what do they care what I think.

I'm a horticulturist. A columnist. A teacher. Writer. Husband, father, son, brother, and a world-class slacker. I have other labels, depending on who you talk to. Some nice, some not so nice.

My takes will be short, like my attention span. So if you want to hang around this blog, let's do it.

  1. Do I have to buy the book to learn what socket greeny is?

  2. You have a dedicated follower now. As I told you before, I was really disappointed when I scrolled down your new website to read your blog to only discover you were joking. But I knew it would only be a matter of time before you gave into the fad/craze/thing to do and jump on board with a blog of your own! Good on ya, mate!
