Yes, this is part of my book, Tales of the Ragoon. I'm trying to write these stores simultaneously. There are about ten of them in the book, and each one is about a couple who are dealing with the laws imposed by the Ragoon. There's no John Norman here. As you can see, I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy.

I'm working on several things--as I always do--at the same time. But mostly finishing up a view of the so-called Interwar Years from 1918-1939. It's titled "From War to War"--and it's a big book--about 80 pages of endnotes. Just finished two chapters on the Tsars and paranoid Stalin. Now patching together the early years of one A. Hitler. And then, it's the usual fine sandpapering before publication.

But you can see some coming attractions at my site: http://sigrosenblum.7p.com/

Thanks for looking!

Sig, the link in the above is not formed correctly. If you EDIT the post you'll see it links to "URL="http://http://sigrosenblum.7p.com/"" (note the doubling of "http://") at the moment, and you can alter it. For everyone else:

Also, our authors here often put a link to their website in their signatures - it's a little bit of harmless self-promotion for yourself that a lot of readers here appreciate.

I suffer from an overactive imagination. I have notes for somewhere around 30 books that I need to get written, many of them nonfiction that will require extensive researching and time.

Fiction-wise, however, I've been working for years to finish this one story. It's terribly written and a lot of really horrible logic flaws. I've been struggling with ways to make it "work" for a long time, and today I hit a breakthrough that will require me to basically rewrite everything. My goal, however, is to just keep working on the flawed premise to at least finish it, and then use it as a framework. I figure I'll spend many more years working on it. It'll be my magnum opus someday.

My non-fiction list of books is growing too fast. This summer I intend to write a local history if I can, then move on to writing either a presidential biography or another statesmen biography. Oh, and I have plenty of military histories I intend to write.

Someday...

Oh, and Sig, I'm always excited to find someone who writes history. It's rare to find people online. And hey, at least you've completed some books. Mine are still embryonic, other than papers I've written for classes (which are great for inspiration).

I'm still figuring stuff out on the forum also. You can add your website link to the place where you put your signature along with book title etc. Check out what the other mobileread authors have done, see if you like something, and ask them how they did it...

I always work on several books at the same time. That seems to help. When there's a snag, I just shift gears and move to something else. Right now I am:

1. Finishing up my magnum opus, "From War to War." It takes the reader step by horrific step from 1918 to WWII.

2. Filling a notebook with snippets, scenes and plot complexities for another Bert Feld Mystery, "Death has a Point." This time the locale is the little-known land of Fristalia.

3. Editing my new biography of Winston Churchill, "Larger than Life."

4. Pouring ideas into another notebook for "Muder in Munich 1938." Here, German detective Ernst Buhl bucks Hitler himself to solve an outrageous crime.

For more details, including quite a few first chapters, see my book site:

Take a closer look and check my updated site. It might spur you to--as Churchill said--actually hatch those eggs!

It works. Now, just give us a little blurb about your books with the website signature.

Next, is there any way you can offer your books in other formats? Many people don't have Kindles and haven't ventured into conversion yet
