Exclusive Excerpt from Snow Storm

by Davidson King

Snow

“May I ask why you’re making a huge scene in the front of Mr. Manos’ house?” He wasn’t being kind to her, but she didn’t seem to care. She batted her eyes.

“Well, Billy, you see, I need to speak with one of the Manos men. My lovely Pixie is in quite a state and it’s all that Buck’s fault.”

Oh lord above, that dog was going to be the death of me.

“Well, I’ll be glad to help you if you can explain the situation.”

She nodded, clearly pleased she had his attention. “Yes, I asked Donald here if I could enter, but he said no, and that’s very rude.” She gave an unaffected Donny the stink eye.

“You have to understand why, Mrs. Markle. You’re hollering at the gate.”

“Yes, well, my Pixie just got back from the vet and she’s pregnant!” she screeched, and that was it. I couldn’t sit there.

“Now, you hold on a second, Mrs. Markle,” I said as I stepped out of the car. Ignoring Bill’s goddammit or Donny’s oh god, I got right up in her face. “Your French poodle is a little slut! She’s been shaking her fluffy ass all over the street. I saw her last week getting her ass tackled by Mr. Ryder’s bulldog, so don’t come here and blame Buck.”

“Why you little…” Yeah, Mrs. Markle went for my neck.

“No!” Bill shouted and stepped between us. “Mrs. Markle, there’s no way of knowing if Buck is the daddy.” That comment earned him a chuckle from Donny. “After the birth, we can all sit down and figure it out.”

“And what about her bills until she delivers?”

“If Buck is the father, then we’ll pay fifty percent after she delivers. But do yourself a favor and get your hussy of a dog fixed,” I snapped, and she began screaming again. “Open the gate, Donny, I’m done with the Poodle Madam.”

Going From Writer to Author

by Davidson King

I know, it’s such an odd subject. Aren’t writers already authors? For years I struggled with this. Of course, I was always writing from a young age. Little stories forever hidden away in composition notebooks away from prying eyes. They were safe in my bookshelf and for me only. I called myself a writer and a dreamer.

As I got older, I was asked what I liked to do in my spare time. I said I like to write, and the rebuttal was, “Oh, you’re an author?” And I always said no. Because nothing of mine was ever published and I felt the titles deserved their own respects. It wasn’t until I published, and I realized how much more went into getting a book out there than just the writing that authors deserved that title.

I don’t frown on people who say they are authors but have never published. Not at all. This is of course my own opinion. Each book goes through grueling situations. First, we surround ourselves with the passion of the written word, building our worlds, embracing our plot. Then comes the other fifty steps after you write The End.

The right cover, the blurb, the formatter, the choice of self-publishing or submitting to a publisher, wondering do you go Amazon exclusive or not, the editor, the betas, the proofreader, the funds to support it all.

Yeah, there’s a lot. And once you’ve driven that road you understand the difference between a writer and an author. I didn’t always but I do now.
