Truth or Fiction: Two Quotes

Regarding writing  fiction as compared with writing the truth, I like these two quotes:

"There was things he stretched, but mainly he told the truth." ~ Mark Twain

"It (writing) doesn't have to be the truth, just your version of it, written down." ~ Virginia Woolf

Do you have a favorite quote about writing? Share it in a comment below, tweet it to @malcommassey1, or share it on Facebook. I would enjoy hearing your favorites.

The Lost Ark of the Incas - Free on Kindle for a limited time!

Just in time for summer reading season, the second novel in The Martin Culver Series will be available FREE on Kindle starting MIDNIGHT THURSDAY!

"The Lost Ark of the Incas" finds Martin Culver heading to the Lima, Peru Gold Museum where thousands of Inca treasures are catalogued. There he meets John Robert Chartwell, British archaeologist, for the first time. Together they confront a mystery involving fradulent Inca relics, the international black market in antiquities, and a botanical research team lost in the Peruvian Amazon.

Is it possible that a replica Ark of the Covenant made by the Incas has survived the centuries? Is the Gold Museum involved with the black market dealers, the replicators of Inca artifacts, or both at the same time? Will a member of Martin's own family be threatened by kidnapping so rampant in South America? When everything is at stake, risk becomes secondary, the only goal is to win.

"The Lost Ark of the Incas"  is being released free for three days only to promote the re-release of the first novel in the series "Holiday in Havana, The Adventures Begin"  will be available in June in revised form on Kindle.

The second novel in the series "The Lost Calendar of the Maya" is available on Kindle now.

All the Books...All the Links...All in one Spot

As the author of a fiction novel series, I often am at odds with myself. Whenever I am not writing, what should I endeavor to promote the most? My books? The series name? My own name as author?

Blogger has provided a solution.  A blog, under my name as author, with pages dedicated to each book. One place to find everything. Isn't that convenient? And so much easier to maintain.

Thank you, Blogger for reading my mind and seeing what I needed. For my fans, I hope you enjoy these changes.
