About the author

C.E. White wrote and self-published his first major works when he was in sixth grade. Using notebook paper, he created little palm-sized comic booklets called The Adventures of Dr. Maums, which circulated around several classrooms.

As he says: "Somehow, I not only did not get bullied for that, but the little booklets always came back to me. A bit worn, but in one piece. Lots of people read them. I did about 30 of these. I’d say that’s when I knew I’d eventually be a professional fiction writer."

He has been writing fiction ever since. Most of his fiction has been stored away, as he worked day jobs, first in the advertising industry as a creative director and later as a software engineer.

He has published software development books for such publishers as Sybex, IDG, and Wiley, and was a co-author on the industry classic, "HTML, XHTML, and CSS Bible" from Wiley.

He has an extensive background in software engineering, marketing communications, and graphic design.

He is now writing full time.

MagicLand, to be published by Morgan James Publishing, is his debut novel.

$200 Your Idea Becomes a MagicLand Short Story

0 readers

All the perks of the first two bonuses. But I suspect that when you read MagicLand, you'll have some ideas of your own. How often have we read a book where we say, "It would be so cool if..."?

This bonus brings your own ideas to the world of MagicLand. Using a different set of characters, provide me a short (one or two paragraph) presentation of your idea, and I'll write a short story generated from that idea and publish it with idea credits to you either online, or, if I get enough of these, in a separate eBook (probably self-published, but who knows? If MagicLand becomes a big seller, I'll be able to get such a short story collection traditionally published, and you will be a legend!).

For ideas on how such a short story might look check out these MagicLand shorties:

Your idea doesn't need to be thoroughly thought out. You don't need to name your characters, or even have much of an idea of who they are. Just your vague idea will suffice.

The MagicLand timeline covers more than 2,000 years, so there's plenty of room for new stories and characters! Have some fun!

$1500 Magical Websites!

0 readers

My web development experience was at places like eBay, PayPal, and HP. In fact, I literally wrote the book (several, in fact) on web development. Maybe you need a website? I can do a simple one for you quickly, or recommend how to get up and rolling on your own using one of the many services now available for those on a budget who need some help with lift-off.

You may be wondering about the advantages of WordPress over Squarespace (or services like it), or vice versa, for example. Or perhaps you need some help customizing graphics. I can help there, with proven methods that have been applied at websites with millions of users.

And, of course, you get a bunch of books. 25 of them. You can give them out to your school district and even your church. MagicLand is a profanity-free zone.
