A Lot Happens In A Week

It seems like I just wrote about the very nice review I received on Song of the Unsung. Wouldn't you know it, I received another one the past few days as well. It seems that some folks don't know where to leave comments on the books, so here are the easiest two: and I would appreciate the input. It helps me to be a better writer if readers tell me how I'm doing. Thanks in advance!

I have also started a new website at and a twitter account at Of course, you can still find me at my Gary Eddings, Author page on Facebook, too.

Gee, maybe THAT's where the week went. I've been bouncing around to all of those like a yoyo. I suppose I should start doing some actual writing before I forget how. I still have three other projects in the hopper.

On a personal note, my Grandson Waylon will be celebrating his first birthday in the next couple of weeks, so I may be sneaking away for a bit. Grandpa's got to go birthday shopping. It's a good thing I have a pickup truck!

Have a great week!

5 Star Review

I just received my first 5-star review for Song of the Unsung on Goodreads! This is the story about post-apocalyptic survival and life on the North Slope of Alaska, and how the Inupiat Eskimos strive to keep their ground "American," along with other survivors who live and work there.

It's available through Amazon as a paperback and Kindle.

I feel a blanket toss coming on!

Who Was The Idiot That Thought Winter Was A Slow Time?

Here it is, the second week of January and the computer keys haven't stopped clicking yet. So many things to write about. So much research to be done. So many plans for where to go when the weather improves to learn more about the people I'm writing about.

Do I take a car, plane, train or bus? Do I stay in motels or campgrounds? Do I rob banks to pay for it all? The alternatives are endless.

Buffalo Hump has been out for a month now and available in all of the major e-reader formats. Those I know who have read it seem to like it and that's a nice feeling!

I even received a very nice e-mail from a reader of my first book, Song of the Unsung, who wanted me to write more on the same subject because he enjoyed it so much that he told all of his coworkers about it.

Slowly, but surely, the word is getting out there. Now that we're past all of the major New Years Resolutions, here's a more doable one: get a copy of Buffalo Hump and read it. It won't change your body mass index, but it'll be a nice alternative to painful situps!

Enjoy escaping into the wilds of Central Idaho!
