Love, Exciting and New… The Friday Poll is Back!

Climb aboard, we’re expecting you!

With Valentine’s Day tantalizingly close, I thought some of you 80’s aficionados would appreciate hearing that song again. Of all the old shows they’ve made updated, current versions of, why not The Love Boat? Who doesn’t want to see B-list celebrities from cancelled TV shows hooking up every week amidst a flimsy plot premise and corny dialogue? The original crew could make cameos. It would be great!

In a comment give the reason for your vote AND who you would want to see on the new Love Boat if it were to come back now.

Have a great Friday! ~Phil

Would You Rather? The Friday Poll


In a past poll we had money versus love and of course love won, but what about time? Is time on the face of the Earth worth more than money? You tell me and give your reasoning in the comments.

Have a great Friday! ~Phil

One Question Survey: I Want Your Thoughts


Hi! My name is…what? My name is…who? My name is… Slim Shady  Eminem 1999

Some authors use a pseudonym, a pen name. A made up name. I wrote my first three books using my real name. I thought, “Why not? It’s my name. I’ve had it my whole life and I’m proud of it.” A couple months ago I became aware of an author who had written some young adult category books. His name, or rather the name on his books, is Ransom Riggs. Obviously made up. Why would anyone name their kid Ransom? That’s like asking for him to be kidnapped. It may be made up, but it stuck in my head. It’s alliterative and has a catchy sound to it doesn’t it?

So I’m starting to wonder, would people remember me and my books sell better if I had a catchier name? Here’s what I want from you: Answer the one question survey below and if you have suggestions for a good pen name put them in the comments. If it turns out most people think I should go with a pen name I will then publish another survey with the pen names and choose one based on the vote, if I like the one that gets the most votes.

As always, feel free to share on social media if you think your goofy, brainiac friends will have some good ideas.
