For those of you who are wondering what the secret of a happy life is; the following illustrates it perfectly.

I’m going to diverge from my usual survival and preparedness related posts, Conservative political opinions and weapons related items just for this specific post so I can mention some important things I feel everyone should strive to achieve in life.  I’ve told this over and over to my children when they were growing up; and now that they are both young adults, and college students; I’d like to pass it along to you.

  1. Attend college and graduate with an employable degree.  It is never too late to go to school.  A degree is not enough; it must be an employable degree.
  2. Enjoy what you do for work.  If you don’t then find another line of work. 
  3. Be proud of your country and proud to be an American.
  4. Find someone who makes you happy and when you do stick with that person.
  5. It’s better to have money and be happy then to not have money and be happy or unhappy.
  6. Life is too short to be miserable.
  7. If you don’t like something about your lifestyle or your personality, etc., then work on changing it.  It can be done.
  8. Have a hobby you enjoy doing and do it.
  9. Learn the art of relaxation.
  10. Have an attitude of gratitude.
  11. Believe in yourself and your abilities.
  12. Be confident always.
  13. Positive thinking gets you further than negative thinking.
  14. Agree with everything I say; oh alright, agree with everything I say most of the time 🙂

After sitting on my back deck this evening and enjoying a cigar and a can of diet root beer soda; I thought I’d share a few things about writing that perhaps some of you may find helpful.

  • Write about things that you enjoy writing about.
  • You will get good reviews and you will get bad reviews.  Appreciate and be grateful for the good reviews and ignore the bad reviews; unless there is something valid which you can learn from them.
  • The things that some people like about your books will be the exact same things that others dislike about them.  Don’t let that discourage you.
  • Book sales have a rhythm all their own.  Some weeks you will feel like you have reached astronomically great sales goals and other weeks not so much.  Books will sell; just don’t worry if there is an off week when it comes to sales.
  • Be appreciative and thankful that people take the time to read your books.  If they have a comment or a question about your books, make the time to respond in a timely and polite manner.
  • But most importantly buy one or more of my books today as they are an enjoyable read and although fiction; you still might learn a thing or two 🙂  Plus buying them is the only surefire way that scientists have discovered to prevent the end of civilization as we know it lol 🙂

I thought I would try a free e-book giveaway.  The rules are simple.  Leave a positive review for any one of my 5 books over at Amazon.com and you are automatically entered in my free e-book giveaway.  The winner will receive any one of my currently published post apocalyptic/survival books of their choice which can be seen on the left side of my blog page; or they can hold out until my first zombie book (currently untitled) is released.  So leave a positive comment over at amazon.com and be entered into my free e-book giveaway.  I will let the contest run until May 24, 2013 and the winner will be notified on my blog at that time.  That person may then select one of my e-books and I will send it to them absolutely free.   Hurry up and enter and spread the word 🙂

Writers, what are you working on these days?  Here’s your chance to share what your past, present and future writing projects are.  Don’t be shy; let us know what you’ve been up to.  I’m always interested in giving other writers a chance to share their projects with people who follow my blog.

As for myself I have five fiction books in the post apocalyptic survival genre published; and available at Amazon.com.  Titles are and you will see a pattern here 🙂

  • American Rebellion Book 1 of the Revolution
  • American Rebellion Book 2 of the Revolution
  • American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution
  • American Rebellion Book 4 of the Revolution
  • American Rebellion Book 5 of the Revolution

My current writing project is a new series, not yet titled, which will deal with zombies.  I’ll be alternating between writing my new zombie series and then going back to continue on with the post apocalyptic American Rebellion series.  Okay writers; what are you working on?
