The growth on my bog has surprised me. Thank you to all my readers. Each week I post a new article on Sunday. As is smashwords, I am constantly trying to improve the site so it is easier for you to use. If you have a comment, please write me. Again, thank You!
My first book "Titanic, A Search For Answers" was originally written as a fundraiser for a maritime museum where I was the advisory board president and a member of the board of trustees.
Historical research is my hobby and influences much of my writing.
I'll add more in the future.
I have about another 6 e-books that I need to finish editing and they will be up. Sorry for the delay. I have a bit of a full plate right now, but I will get them up soon. Also, based on feedback from readers, I wrote an outline for a new book on Titanic (but this will be my last Titanic book).
A submarine sailor for almost nine years, I am also an award winning artist. As a scuba diver I have dived sites from New England to the Caribbean.
Once again, thank you very much.
Take care and God bless you.
Drop me a line ... I am glad to answer any questions you might have.

- Faith Seeds: Volume One
on April 28, 2011
Very well written, concise, and to the point. If you have problems in your life (and who doesn’t) Jaye’s devotionals will give you peace and help you to start your day in a positive way that will reward you and those you come in contact with, throughout the whole day. Use Jaye’s devotional with your own bible study and you can open up the kingdom of the Lord in a completely new way. This devotional was planned and structured in a way that each part is complete and takes only a minimum of your time. Combined, each part makes a devotional that is inspiring. The only negative comment I have is that in reading this (and other devotionals of Jaye’s) I have a distinct impression that jaye is holding back in his teachings.

Well done! There are many authors today who would benefit greatly from 400 Words. Kurt writes specifically about writing flash fiction, but his advice is great for longer works as well (and non-fiction too). The thing I liked most (besides the direct advice of the essay) was that even the timing and pace of this article is a lesson in how to write successful flash fiction. Sometimes writers use exotic themes or characters to make up for a lack of structure or planning. Follow Kurt’s advice and even something as mundane as washing the dishes could be an exciting piece of literature.

JT if you wangt to publish this book and can't get a publisher to look at it try LULU.com
It is a good thing you are trying to do. Sometimes I wonder how many best selling books never got published because the author passed away before the book was finished.
