The Next Chapter

Sunday - 09/02/18 BooksOrBooks is leaving 3460 E Sunset Road, Suite R, Las Vegas, NV at the end of its lease, but not closing or going out of business. We've been at this location since November 1, 2013 and open to the public since February 1, 2014. We've chosen to say that it is time for the Next Chapter. Opening was easy...putting a plan in place and then executing. The Next Chapter is more difficult. Things to consider: timing,… Continue reading

Saying good-bye (at least for now)

Saturday – 08/25/18 Two weeks ago today, I emailed my landlord to tell them we wouldn’t be renewing our lease. That was one of the most difficult emails that I ever wrote.

When I was single, I hated dating—which is probably why I didn’t do much of it. There are so many unspoken rules, and girls play games, and it’s enough to make you want to become a celibate monk. Okay, it’s not quite that bad. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to find the right girl, and the rest is history. But even though my “game” probably sucked, I knew some common rules of dating.

Digital vs. Print: The Book Battle Rages On

As the holiday shopping season swings into full force, it’s interesting to watch people buying books. Many a wish list has everything from the latest by Stephen King to an Amazon Gift Card (an actual card or via email) to a new e-reader device. Yet the battle for which is more popular is truly running neck and neck. No matter who you ask, the answer is always different, and usually very passionate. Christine Donovan, from Deerfield…

Writing, Creativity and Motivation

Voltaire is reputed to have said to a client “… madam, here is the novel you commissioned it’s in two volumes, if I had more time I could have written it in one.” What a dramatic statement! It gets to the heart of new writers problems – how to be clear and concise. As an established writer I am frequently asked for advice but fail miserably in supplying answers. I have been writing now for…
