It’s me, Jerry.
Time passes quickly when you’re having a good time, eh?
Well then I must have been having a hell of good time because a lot of it has passed since you last heard from me. In some cases, years. (It was a really good time.)
But I’m here now…
…and I’ve pulled together all the various kinds of writing I’ve done over the years into one place
for the first time, at my new website
Used to be I was scattered over a couple of different sites. And used tobe I’d send out different newsletters, too—on money, dogs, writing, and my novels and nonfiction books.
That’s done. There’s going to be just this one newsletter now, and that I’ll be sending only when I have something new to report (like the website
and the books below).
The Write Stuff Storybundle for Writers
If you’re a writer or working to become one, it’s hard to beat this bunch. Eleven lifelong, bestselling, award-winning writers—like Bob Mayer, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Chuck Wendig, and others—have gotten together to give you eleven excellent books that tell you just about everything you ever wanted to know about making a living as a professional writer: craft, business, the life. Right here
This is a terrific bundle
, and I’m happy to be a part of it. (My own contribution is what has become an enduring classic over the years, my book Break Writer’s Block Now!
For a limited time, you can pick up this nifty writer’s library by pretty much naming your own price (with a little restriction or two), and at the same time get a chance to donate to a writerly charity if you’re of mind.
You’ll find it for Kindle, Nook, Kobo and i-Everything here atStorybundle.com
(where you can also read a bit about the books and their authors). I picked up my own bundle as soon as it went live. I can’t imagine why any writer or anyone who’d like to be one wouldn’t want to. You
can do it by going here

How to Have More Money
This seemed like a no-brainer to me, so I set out to do it. And did.
And then I wrote a small book about it—a mini-book, actually—with a simple, easy-to-follow, four-point program. That works. I called the book, well, Duh! (I thought to myself): How To Have More Money.
With this one…
The Dog Book
Putting together this anthology of memoirs, essays, appreciations, and other non-fiction works about the dog in all its various ways of living with, working with, and just plain being with us was a labor of love for me.
A rich and rewarding one. A deeply satisfying one.
Here you’ll find wonderful works on the dog (including some very particular ones) and us together by such naturalists, essayists, and belletrists as Doris Lessing, E.B. White, Edward Hoagland, William Cowper, John Burroughs, and John Steinbeck. And many more.
If you’ve ever lived with a dog, or even spent any time around one, you’ll almost certainly enjoy this anthology. I certainly did.
It’s a book to settle in with, a book in which to linger and luxuriate.
That’s it for now. Nice to be talking with you again.
I’ll probably do it again next month.
PS: Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might find it of interest. If you received it that way and would like to subscribe, just send me an email at JM14@att.net with Newsletter in the subject line and it’ll be done.
