Ideas on Publishing
So, now that I am nearly back on my feet I can say that, I have a winner for the #AskEricAnything hashtag promo contest thing, and I will be announcing it it later on. I will have the video up as soon as I possibly can get it up and then I will be cashing in all my chips and trying to figure out something else to promote the books with. Self Publishing I’ve been looking into the idea...
Anonymous Fires Back at FBI
It is fitting that, after going to see Captain America: The First Avenger, last night at a midnight screening, I come hoe to see this little headline in reader. Anonymous and LulzSec to FBI “We’re not going anywhere.” Looks as if the two hacker groups, who have taken responsibility, repeatedly, for the Sony PSN hack, various and unconfirmed attacks on either the CIA, or the U.S....
Borders Books and What Happened ...
Slowly The Wheel Turns Borders, was, for all intents and purposes, the premiere bookstore. It was a place that was open and friendly and receptive to new authors, established authors and book fanatics since it’s inception. What killed Borders? Well, you can attribute it to several factors, which I will attempt to detail here as briefly as I can. 1. The Fickle American Consumer There can be...

Pentagon Looking into Social Media
Interesting article over at Wired You don’t need to have 5,000 friends of Facebook to know that social media can have a notorious mix of rumor, gossip and just plain disinformation. The Pentagon is looking to build a tool to sniff out social media propaganda campaigns and spit some counter-spin right back at it.
Contest, Hashtags and Free Stuff !
So, yesterday I started this little experiment with the use of a special “Hashtag,” on Twitter to promote the release of my new book from May December Publications. For those of you that don’t know what a hastag is, or who don’t use twitter regularly enough to know what a hashtag does, I will refer you to this this link so I don’t have to go through with a full on...
Man Banned from the Internet and More
So yeah, as I had written in the first post yesterday, the world, especially the tech world is a very odd place to be. We are sort of at this crucial tipping point in the world where “Free,” isn’t really the right word anymore to describe much of anything. Yesterday I put up a post sort of touching on the whole idea of a group or groups dedicated to lobbying and campaigning for...
Man Banned from Internet for Exceeding Comcast... →
Not to turn the sole focus away from horribly pimping myself out to the modern word, but I just read this on my Reader app and thought that it was something that reflects the changing times we live in.
Campfire Stories, My Short Story Collection is...

Here’s the deal though, it’s going live on Amazon tomorrow, it’s going to also have...
Free Internet & Infographic's
I’m fascinated by the idea that the U.S. government wants to now, close down the free and open internet, and create a homogenized and censored, new internet. I don’t believe the conspiracy theories behind the actual information, but the likelihood of this happening, like bio-recognition and pre-crime technology, is insanely higher than one would think. With all the...
FREE EBOOK AVAILABLE
I had the best of intentions on doing an actual contest for getting a free copy of my novella, “A Man of Letters,” through Swordsman. For those of you who don’t know, It was published last year, or really the end of last year and it’s currently available only as a digital file. So to bolster some much needed support right now, when it comes to writing/paying bills I was...
Announcements and Updates
So…I have been sitting on a fairly large announcement for about a week now and it’s actually the result of a decision that I came to, oh, about a week ago. It’s not going to mean much to some of you, those of you who know me through my writing only, you guys are going to be just fine. But others of you who come here after possibly googling my name or from other avenues, will at...
Apparently This Is The Spot
If you have stumbled upon this Tumblr then you should already know that, by the name alone, you have stumbled onto the “Official,” Tumblog of Eric Pollarine. I’t Still under construction, and Eric isn’t all that sure that this will even take off, but he thought it was necessary given the massive amount of possibilities that Tumblr holds as a sharing platform. Also,...
