The Power of a Streak


…is because I have a streak going. That’s right, for 1,353 nights in a row, I have put a blog up here.

That’s every day for 3.7 years.

Without a miss, even when I was sick or traveling. I am sure the count is off a day or more one way or another, but close enough. I know I haven’t missed a day in all that time.

This very well might be the dumbest streak in all of time.

Today I took today away from this computer and writer’s meetings and all that other stuff and went and saw Wonder Woman, had some great food, did some shopping,and had a fun drive. The only reason this is here is that silly number above. Otherwise I would have just watched some television and gone to bed.

The power of a streak.

The rest of this blog is copied from yesterday because I really hope you all will buy this great bundle of science fiction novels. Or at least pass the word in your favorite social media place.

And while I am at it, still lots of room in the June online workshops as well starting this week.


Wanted to remind everyone about the great science fiction bundle that is active at the moment. Some really fantastic summer reading here by some top writers.

The initial titles in the Moonscapes Bundle (minimum $5 to purchase) are:

  • Starflight by Ron Collins
  • The Nara Reaction by M. L. Buchman
  • Recovery Man by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
  • Auberon by Blaze Ward
  • In Dreams by Annie Reed

If you pay more than the bonus price of just $15, you get all five of the regular titles, plus five more!

  • Eternity by Maggie Jaimeson
  • Rediscovery by Lisa Silverthorne
  • Climbing Olympus by Kevin J. Anderson
  • Fiction River: Moonscapes by Fiction River
  • Star Mist by Dean Wesley Smith

This bundle is available only for a limited time via It allows easy reading on computers, smartphones, and tablets as well as Kindle and other ereaders via file transfer, email, and other methods. You get multiple DRM-free formats (.epub and .mobi) for all books!

It’s also super easy to give the gift of reading with StoryBundle, thanks to their gift cards – which allow you to send someone a code that they can redeem for any future StoryBundle bundle – and timed delivery, which allows you to control exactly when your recipient will get the gift of StoryBundle.

Trust me, folks, this is some fantastic summer reading. And for $15 and a few bucks to AbleGamers, you can’t go wrong here.
