It is out! http://www.lulu.com/shop/mik-alexandru/starboard-maiden/paperback/product-23384270.html The paperback is finally available, and shouldn’t disappoint! It took some time to settle the colors (although the preview is still off) its finally the way the digital copy appears. Crisp colors, clear and clean. Because you can judge this book by its cover. Also, on Lulu.com, Starboard Maiden is […]Read more "Maiden Voyage!"
So I have a few issues, and some I’m still working on, but the book is out. I wanted both ebook as well as paperback to be released at the same time but…you know production woes. Starboard Maiden is available pretty much everywhere, Amazon, Google, Barnes and Noble, but I will recommend getting it from […]Read more "Starboard Maiden – A soft release"
I have a bad case of writer’s block. It’s not lack of inspiration, or choosing the right word or any creative aspect. No. Its health, or lack thereof, a countdown to being homeless (thanks to political maneuvers from both VA and Democratic Party members) and a university (that will remain nameless for now) that decided […]Read more "Writer’s Block (or the barricade)"
So I was reading yet another article about self driving cars. That lead to others and others and I can safely lump all of them into two categories. Not for me, never gonna happen.

I was hit with one of these on my idiotic “smart phone” and now on a computer that only goes to three sites, (weather, wordpress, and a professional site that I won’t mention) The weak link being wordpress. It gives you a warning, that your hard drive will be deleted unless you call some number. […]Read more "Viruses"

The politics, and populism that is rising in the U.S. as well as other countries is only a reflection of another problem, a large, almost plague-like affliction. Problem solving. I have been helping somebody work on their book, not fiction, but one revolving around this author’s […]Read more "Simplicity"
I was going to skip writing for a while (since it seems that I only get views the day I post something, and makes me wonder if it’s deliberate, to generate more ad exposure) but reading the news, I noticed something. Well, I noticed this a while ago, and today is just got me angry. […]Read more "Comments"
A hydrogen atom ran to his mom crying. “Mom, I lost my electron!” “Are you pozitive?” “No, Im a proton!” Sodium and Chloride finally tie the knot and marry, “Honey, I lost your electron,” said Chrolide “Are you still in love with me?” “I’m neutral.” A photon was speeding on the highway when […]Read more "Some Math and Physics Jokes"
I get the feeling that everyone that has a blog, or reads a blog is trying to sell a book. People that don’t read blogs are people that read books, and well…buy said books. That’s a whole different topic. So most of you are putting something out. And some of you are trying to do […]Read more "Publishing Woes"
