My father, Dwane “Cloddy” Clodfelter, was born in July of 1918. If he was with us today, he would have celebrated his 100th birthday. Since August 2012, I have been working on his biography entitled, CLODDY: Coach Dwane “Cloddy” Clodfelter, a Pioneer in the Integration of NCAA College Basketball. My graphic designers are almost finished with their work on the cover and the book’s interior design. I hope to release the book by mid-October. CLODDY will be available for purchase on my website.

The cover should be completed by month’s end. I have worked on this biography for six years and it has taken much longer than anticipated. I think my next book will be a novel – because then I can just make stuff up. I’m anxious to get this book released and hope those who read Dad’s story will enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it!

WRITER’S DIGEST MAGAZINE: A Good Resource for Writers

For those of you interested in writing, I would recommend taking a look at the magazine “Writer’s Digest.” The magazine covers all facets of writing and all genres: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, Free-Lance Writing, Humor, Marketing, Getting Published, Agents and Editors, Tips on Writing, Etc.

The recent May/June edition has an article entitled “101 Best Websites for Writers.” This listing alone is a very helpful resource which will take a writer to websites which are further sources of help. My wife recently bought me a subscription which I am looking forward to receiving.

CAVEAT: If you subscribe to their email list, you will receive multiple emails daily trying to sell you something – a few of which may be of help, but mostly spam from my perspective.

Good writing!
