Happy Birthday to me!

Why yes, my birthday is tomorrow! Thank you for asking! I will be 160 years old, but people tell me I don’t look a day over 90.  Okay, seriously though, if you haven’t already guessed, I’m Solitaire Parke. Yes the Solitaire Parke, you know the one you’ve never heard of. We here at SolitaireParke.com are trying to fix that! Me and my self-proclaimed team of professionals are working extremely hard and who knew it took so many people to popularize one author! It’s a good thing this is fun! Last but not least, and if anything, the most important element of all…the READER…yeah, that’s you. Without the reader… we’re NOTHING!

My writing is very much like my reading…I try to absorb everything. I carry my Nook everywhere I go. I have been seriously considering having it surgically implanted onto the end of my arm. That having been said, “Vengeance of the Wolf,” the first of the Dorian Trilogy is a horror/thriller book. But in the past I have also written poetry (it has been compared to the style of Edgar Allan Poe;) and two metaphysical documentaries. In the near future I will finish not only the sequel to “Vengeance,” “A Distant Howling,” but a new action/sci-fi novel “Tinker Smith & the Conspiracy of OZ.”

With the advent of self publishing sites such as Lulu, Pubit and Amazon just to mention a few, we’ve been busy editing, formatting and uploading the books. When we started this endeavor, we had no idea of the many challenges. Here I thought that just writing the book would be the biggest hurtle. Not only were we dealing with multiple formats and different guidelines for the many self publishing sites, the complexity and depth of Microsoft Word was surprising. For the last month or so we’ve been pursuing all the various social media outlets, you know…Facebook, Nothing Binding, Good Reads, World Literary Café and of course, Twitter;  I’ve learned that birds of a feather “tweet” together.

I would love for you to follow me and give me your feedback and suggestions as I continue to give you information about me, my upcoming books and also share with you any helpful discoveries I have made along the way.

My goal ultimately, is to produce fun and engaging literature that with your help will become as common place in everyone’s home as salt and pepper.

About solitaireparke

Solitaire Parke is an author of Science Fiction/Urban Fantasy, Poetry and Larger World books. He is a lover of dragons, the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, and has a large collection of science fiction books and movies. After becoming an award winning photographer and earning a degree in music theory, he worked in graphic and web design, but he always returns to writing. When he is not writing, you can find him reading, watching a sci-fi television show or movie, or researching a new “techno gadget” on the internet. He now resides in Arizona with his family and is the proud owner of Tairobi, his Manx cat, who has been an enormous help in the writing process by lying on the computer keyboard - always willing to lend a paw or two!
