Welcome to the Author Platform of VJ Miller, Sr.

No matter what you do, or what you create, there will always be someone who doesn’t like it.

That said this site will double as my Author Platform and a place for everyone to exchange ideas without being limited to 160 characters. My idea is to write reviews on books, write short stories and do an interview from time to time. Your part will be to chip in your 2 cents. Tell me what you like or don’t like (keep it civil) give me your take on my reviews or just tell me about a book you just could not put down . . . and why.

As this site evolves who knows what we will share. Thank you.

Here’s the problem.

The writing Muse jumps into my mind at the most inopportune times when I’ve little time to be productive, then when I’m at the keyboard with all the time in the world she decides to go out for a long walk. And her step-brother, Ambition, usually decides to take a nap. What’s an author to do? Continue reading The Writing Muse–Humor at My Expense
