    Three new books coming in 2022

    In my last post I talked about how the longer I go through life the more growth minded as opposed to goal focused I become. Goals just stress me out. If you miss them you just feel depressed. Hit them and the feeling of success fades very quickly. So I am trying this year to just focus on improving. But having said that I hope to have out three books this year, Number Investigators #4. a yet untitled Christmas picture book, and my first middle grade novel called Quinton, a novel that’s been sitting on my desk way…too…long. It’s time for it to be free. But these are all books…

    Happy 2022. Growth verses goals.

    It’s 2022. what the heck. Over the last few years I’ve dealt with a separation, a divorce, becoming a single dad and a move to a house that needs a lot of TLC, new school district, new job, broken arm so it’s been…more than normal. Oh yeah, and a pandemic–the Covid–the Rona. Can’t forget that. All of that put together have been road bumps in my goals. At least in my goals previously I had hope to hit in previous years. But goals break your heart. They hurt. They remind you of your short comings. And if you do hit a goal the dopamine hit is short lived. Whoo hoo!…

    Sally Hemingway and the STEM Contest now available on Kindle

    The first two books in this series came out in 2018 and 2019, but then in 2019 I dealt with my separation and job hunt all at the same time. So this book was put on the proverbial shelf for awhile as I actually finished the manuscript in 2019 and then in 2020 had it proofread and edited. But just a lesson that sometimes things get in the way. Plus with the pandemic I side tracked with my silly posts about the zombie acpolyse and Crazy Carl. But life is coming back around to being able to write and publish more regularly now. This time around Sally takes the lead…

    New book coming this week

    I uploaded the final Kindle version for Sally Hemingway and the STEM Contest. It should be ready by the end of the week. Click here to order it on Kindle. The paperback should be ready next month. Amazon has unfortunately done way with the Kindle Matchbook program where if you ordered the paperback you could get the Kindle version for cheaper or free. I only sold a handful of Kindle copies that way but it was still a nice offer to customers.

    Cover Reveal for Sally Hemingway and the STEM Contest

    I have been sitting on this book for awhile. The manuscript has been finished for a year. But sometimes life gets in the way. And for some reason I just couldn’t get myself to get the cover finished. Well, I went on vacation and came back and ordered the cover. The first two books in the series focused on Charlotte Morgan, at the recommendation of one of my first readers and editors it was suggested to continue the series with each character taking the lead. So with this entry we move the focus to Sally who is more interested in engineering than just math. Preorder information will be coming later…

    Why did I switch to martintillerauthor.com?

    Well to put it bluntly I screwed up. That’s why I switched to this new website. None other than I just screw up. I didn’t protect my domain and another Martin Tiller grabbed it, he’s a realtor in South Carolina. Another Martin Tiller? I mean really what are the odds? I guess good enough to lose my site. In my defense, life was rough at that time. Coming out of a separation and divorce, becoming a single dad and starting a new job, that’s a lot on one’s plate. And to make it worse I discovered I had lost my old site when I was at the hospital with my…
