Welcome, Savvy Reader!

The Heartless

The Elite cover 2.1

My name is James Ticknor, author of The Heartless Trilogy. I hold a strong interest in book reviews, author interviews, promoting literary works, teaching what I know, and herald trending news in the literary world. I actively seek to hunt down great books and give you accurate and in-depth information. Reading is an escape from reality, and writing is the only pathway to immortality.

I have just entered the Writer’s Digest Annual Poetry Competition! I am really hoping that my poem, ‘Neath the Willow Tree, is selected.

I have just made my profile and am participating in NaNoWriMo. I don’t anticipate completing the challenge, as I have much to do, but even failing is progress. Fear of failure isn’t an excuse to give up!

  1. Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i
    own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    • Thank you for visiting the blogs! I will say that I have received some spam comments that I’ve not approved to post (such as back massages, sites that solicit for paid services, etc). Then, I started getting a massive flux in my subscriptions (oddly enough, they don’t appear on my database. Only in my e-mail). Most of the email addresses associated with these are @nokia.com, or something like that. I Googled if others had this issue, and it appears to be a trending problem. Some have gone through the offending website to report the issue, but to no avail. I think Google may blacklist this site, and I’m certain there’s a way to filter these. I need to call Bluehost (where I rent my domain) and report the issue. I’m unsure right now if there’s a plugin to help with this issue, as I’ve only just recently ran into this issue myself. What’s happening on your end? (NOTE: Most of my visits, surprisingly, are from Russia. The top referring site is iloveitaly.com or something like that, which is a shopping website.)

  2. Magnificent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous
    to and you’re just extremely wonderful. I actually like what
    you have acquired here, really like what you are stating and the way in which you say it.
    You make it enjoyable and you still take care of to keep it
    sensible. I can’t wait to read much more from you.
    This is really a wonderful site.

    • Thank you! I’ve got a new post coming Monday, and I’ve been working extremely hard on my videos. The next video I post will blow the other’s away as far as graphic design goes. I may even post the video sometime this weekend!
