I think i’ll be cutting back on a lot of things i do. I don’t get paid to social network. i don’t get paid to help try to drive more business to my boss’s business. I social network because i like it but now it seems to be getting in the way of my book writing. But how do i book write when i can’t get any real help on editing. i have one or two people that help when they have free time but that’s not often. But is it worth writing when you can not get any artwork for covers. I’ve seen people willing to charge everything from 350 to build a website. to 250 to make a book cover for me. i found a great lady in New Mexico that did mine for 99 dollars and it was cool. But my book is struggling to make money and i can’t afford to pay to much for the work. so i started to look in to doing the covers myself. not something i have a passion for. this will be hard.

My first book, i had a passion for and i still do but my Sci-Fi is directed to young teens. and i placed it out on ebooks. how many teens are reading on Ebook anyway? or is my book just not interesting to this crowd? On that note i will be working on wrapping up the current projects.( 2 short stories and book 2) and moving on to a different series more adult driven. i still will work on the Native Protectors series but it will be on the back burners. I will start to push my self made web site. WWW.smashtowerbooks.com . Native Protector might do well in print if i ever get the chance to print it. So as my current projects start to drop i’ll be working on my steampunk and apocalyptic series. both that have been started. So if i look like i vanished. i’m working on my books. sorry for the Rant. i just had to get it out.

So i have not posted a blog in a long while. and there is some reasons for this. I’m a new author and i’m thin skin about my writing. i have never said that i was the greatest writer in the world.  I like to see my stories in print. i like the idea that someone else way enjoy my stories. I had a bad review and it took the wind out of my sails for a bit. and it did not help that my friends that have been editing my books. are not helping much. So i have started searching for a few local people that can help.

My first book has done poorly in sales but i expected that so. it is depressing that i’m not selling books like R.A.Salvatore . My stories are getting out there. About 700-800 copies of my book are out there. so i’m happy about that. Spirit Lance and the Native Protectors series will continue. but i think much slower. I have also changed my plans slightly. Rise Of The Harkon is written but not edited. i’m working on that now. It will be released when it is ready. i also started working on a second short story. Rise Of The Harkon and the second short story will be released individuality for around .99 cents. but i hope to fuse all three. Spirit Lance and Rise Of The Harkon and the new short in to one book called Spirit Lance Fusion.  And i hope to have this book in print (Hard Copy) being sold on my web site when it is finished.

I still have many book ideas in the works. i expect most will be like Spirit Lance (Short books). I will be writing many short stories or companion stories to go with the short books. Many maybe asking why don’t you just write longer books. I have a short attention span. i will try to plot out a book as best as i can. I will give myself goals and i will push to finish them. But in most cases i rush. i hope to cure this problem but it is a work in progress. Moving on to Gaming.

Gaming- I play Guild Wars 2.  My guild has about 15 players. And a few of us like to play World Vs World or PVP or RVR. how ever you like to think of it. i enjoy the PVP. This play is close to a game i used to play called Dark Ages Of Camelot. Many people think that the maps in PVP are too small and i agree to a point. it take a long time to run back where you were. to join your friends. i wish all keeps and supply camps had portals for the controlling forces. making it a little easier to get back in the game.

Local events and Podcasts- I’m a big fan and supporter of Western X. A web series that is filmed locally here in Arizona. The production campany Cazador Productions has several  projects in the works. they will be doing 24/7 internet radio soon which will be very good to listen to with some of the shows that they already have. Recently i was given the opportunity to record a podcast with Western X creator Michael Flores. This episode he is joined by Thomas Hinman (Film Composer), Actor David Staley and fans Robert Tabb (me) and Clint Felton. Called Weird West Radio. In this show Micheal mentioned a show on Cable Called Hell On Wheels . Which got me interested in the show. thank you Michael for that. i have watched all of the shows now and are all caught up. Sweet new one this weekend!!!

Well this the end of this posting for now but i hope that i caught you up on what i was doing recently. Hope to post again soon.

Later,

Robert Tabb

So for the people that don’t know me every well. my name is Robert. i live in Mesa, Arizona. I am a geek. i love playing computer games. Chatting on Ventrilo, or Mumble. I like listening to Music while at home alone gaming or on the social networking sites. My favorite music right now is Halestorm, and Airbourne, Nickleback .

The game i’m waiting for is Guild Wars 2. My friend and i are already getting our guild ready. even though it is still is a little ways, away. our guild was large in World Of Warcraft a long time ago. but fell apart over time. we have at least 6 ready but hope the old guildies will come out of hiding to play.

I like social networking i run 4 twitter accounts, mine is @rtabb don’t tweet to much from it. second is one i set up for my place i used to work. @Sourdoughpizza1 they have the best pizza. @EastValleyinfo this one i set up to help support local events and companies. i support local authors from this account like: Kevin Hearne , Tom Leveen ,Lisa McMann. i also support a web series called Western X. Filmed locally and most of the crew and actors are from here. eastvalleyinfo is also on Facebook and Google Plus. and smashtowerbooks is also on Facebook.

My fourth account is @Smashtowerbooks . this account was to support my book writing. since this is the first time for writing books it maybe a pain but i’m hope for alot of fun. My first series is called the Native Protectors. and there are 6 books planned and maybe a few short stories.

this is the break down.

Native protectors   Steampunk  Western    Fantasy

6                               12                   3                 1
