We were supposed to get 500 hardbacks of my new book, GOVT CHEESE: A Memoir, on 12/1/22 to sign and ship to readers who had preordered. Guess what? The books are sitting on a truck in Simi Valley, California today, 1/4/23.

But no worries, brothers and sisters! See the links below to order the (unsigned) hardback, the eBook, or the audiobook. You can order a signed First Edition hardback as well. I’ll sign it and send it as soon as we can get it off that truck.

Happy New Year!

We’ll get ’em off, I promise!!


Steve shows you the predictable Resistance points that every writer hits in a work-in-progress and then shows you how to deal with each one of these sticking points. This book shows you how to keep going with your work.

do the work book banner 1


A short book about the writing of a first novel: for Steve, The Legend of Bagger Vance. Having failed with three earlier attempts at novels, here's how Steve finally succeeded.



Steve shares his "lessons learned" from the trenches of the five different writing careers—advertising, screenwriting, fiction, nonfiction, and self-help. This is tradecraft. An MFA in Writing in 197 pages.



Amateurs have amateur habits. Pros have pro habits. When we turn pro, we give up the comfortable life but we find our power. Steve answers the question, "How do we overcome Resistance?"

    Thank you very much dear Steve,

    I am not able to order a signed copy from the page to come to Greece, the costs of the posting seem to be more than the books’ price, so please keep one to send me and let me know how to pay for it. I want to buy even more copies but an incident with my father who lost his recent memory a few days ago costed much so I will try to support again in the recent future, most possibly through Italy’s Amazon.

    For now I am buying the audiobook, and I wish you and all of us a great luck! Thank you for your work and the true company here.

    Ah, luck is for those who don’t know the power of Resistance. I’d better wish you an all-present awareness of Resistance and the Hero, and a happy new year to all friends, with health and wisdom to accompany you all! We must always Re-member.

    Happy New Year, Steve!! I’ll be listening to the audiobook during my morning and evening commutes.

      Those will be great times to do so, Kate!

      I listen to Steve narrating and it’s like I’m listening to a relative, how interesting.

      Happy new year, I hope the best for you.

    Happy New Year Steve & Tribe!
    Got it on Audible last week, listened. It is (just had image of Tony the Tiger in my mind) GGRRREEAAATT!!! Loved it.
    George Guidall maybe the best narrator of all time, but I still prefer to hear your voice read your books.

    It is worth the wait. I loved it, and will likely re-listen again this week.

    I had some thoughts yesterday about the Wilderness. I’m listening to the Exodus series produced by Daily Wire and Jordan Peterson. It is a discussion of Exodus with 6-7 other scholars to discuss the meaning of Exodus in our present lives.

    So…I didn’t cotton onto the fact that the Wilderness is Biblical until I heard it just recently. That is just one reason why I decided to journal my daily Bible readings in the future. Nothing sticks until I write it out in my own words. I knew this from my days studying Russian at DLI–but sloth and/or ‘too busy’ has often stopped me from doing my very best at everything I’m doing.

    10 hours a week…no excuse.

    So, God says to Pharaoh, “Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness….” Repeated numerous times. Before each warning of a plague. Exodus is an escape from tyranny into the wilderness with the promise of entry into the land of milk and honey. The Israelis escape from a government tyranny only to find themselves in the wilderness for 40 years.

    Why 40 years?

    Here is what I thought about yesterday. We are born. We learn the rules of the road…childhood/adolescence. We must conform to the tyranny of the age: learn a trade or at least a shadow-career. We learn how to support ourselves in our initial career–but it is empty. There is something more, something grander, something more fulfilling that calls to us.

    God calls us into the Wilderness to serve him. What the heck does that mean? What is the land of milk and honey?

    I don’t want to be the spoiler for GOVT CHEESE-but the last chapter, IMHO, is about finding the land of milk and honey. And it may take decades in the wilderness–but don’t quit. It is worth it.

    For what it’s worth. It may take 40 years in the Wilderness to learn how to serve God with our individual gifts. God, and mankind need us to hone our gifts. We must become humble enough to understand that our gifts are not ours–they are to be used in the service of God and/or mankind. They are not to be used to buy a Lamborghini.

    See Andrew Tate…

    The land of milk and honey is when we finally let 2 generations of ego die in the desert, after we’ve crafted a Golden Calf, after gone down each pointless rabbit holes–to finally understand that it is the humble, honest, effortful service of employing our gifts in honor of others that nourish us. It is not a life of comfort.

    “Man does not live by bread alone..” is another echo of this. God is not talking about the material world to Israel, nor to any of us. We must learn to break the bonds of tyranny from man as well as from ourselves.

    My lot in life has always been the paste-eater in the gifted classes. In the room of the smart kids, but often distracted by girls, sports, and smoking weed…I often feel like the slow kid here as well.

    I had “The Teachings of Don Juan” by Carlos Canstenada on my desk one day in English class. My teacher, also my basketball coach, says to me, “Brian, you know there are many other books in this series. In the other books he learns that he doesn’t need the drugs to learn…”

    Basically he was telling me, “I know this if 5th period and you, Rick and Ralph always come to class wearing sunglasses because you smoked weed at lunch. You’re blowing it kid. Sober up. You have potential. Don’t ruin it.”

    It is the aligned service to others/God that is the actual mike and honey. That is what feeds our soul. That is why we are here. The distractions–the girls, the sports, the weed–are all golden calves. Get to work Nelson!

    • Jackie on January 4, 2023 at 1:53 pm

      Happy New Year Steve and All,
      Brian when you said, “We must become humble enough to understand that our gifts are not ours–they are to be used in the service of God and/or mankind. They are not to be used to buy a Lamborghini.” It made me think of this piece I came across when contemplating to keep going or to give up. (The piece popped up in my email from an unexected place. I almost deleted it.)


      Please read this beautiful piece someone shared, it will edify you. THE SECRET OF PLEASING GOD … I asked the Lord, ‘Lord how can a mortal man please a spiritual God, how can flesh and blood like me please a Spirit like you’. Then He answered me as though with a chuckle, ” you must learn to live like a tree”. More puzzled still I asked, ‘Lord how do I live like a tree’? Then He asked me ”Son, why do you plant trees?” I answered slowly with thoughts flying through my mind, ‘Lord I believe trees are planted for fruits, for shade and beauty and then He asked me ”which among them does the tree benefit directly from?” I answered, none Lord. Then the Lord said ”Son you must take note of the following if you will ever please Me”:

      First, He said, ‘no matter how tall a tree grows, it never leaves the ground. You will never see a tree flying. So in the same way, no matter how great you become, you must remain humble. You must never allow what I Am doing in your life to get into your head; you must not lose your touch with the ground;

      Second, son, a tree grows deeper as it grows higher. You must deepen and strengthen the principles you started with. You must have a firm grip on the things you started your walk with God with and they must grow stronger as God lifts you higher. Watch out, for the enemy will creep in to make you believe you are too busy to strengthen your real strengths;

      Third, every tree grows in the direction of the source of its energy (The Sun). Unlike many men who grow away from the source of their energy, your growth should bring you closer. The growth and expansion of your life should not take you from the source of the growth and expansion. Please take note that the growth of a tree is measured by how close it has become to the source of its energy;

      Fourth: He asked, Son, have you ever seen a tree eating its fruits, I answered laughing ‘No Lord’ then He said you must know that whatever I have placed in your life: your gifts, talents, the anointing on your life is not for self-gratification. You must never see it as a means of rewarding yourself…I placed them on your life for my people.

      Fifth: there is no tree reserved for a special kind of people. There is nothing like a tree for the rich or a tree for the poor. You should remain accessible to all kinds of people On your way to Jairus’ house, the wretched woman with the issue of blood should be able to touch you. As you go on to heal the Rich man’s daughter, the poor blind Bartimaeus should be able to call you and gain your attention.

      Sixth: a tree never leaves the place where it is planted. No matter how dry the place and scorchy the sun becomes, a tree will remain there and at times die there in hope that someday its maker will send rain. ‘Even if there is a greener pasture just nearby, a tree would never leave the place of its ‘planting’. Then with a staid sense in His voice, He said ‘son, this last one I consider very important and I want you to take very seriously: You must never forget everything I have told you today, I said ‘okay Lord” He went ahead and said:

      Seventh, a tree in the forest where no man is, bears fruits as much as a tree in the city. It doesn’t say “well, because there’s no one to eat of me or see what I am doing or appreciate me, I won’t bear fruits next sea son”. It keeps thinking in its heart “who knows, a hungry man may just pass by and let it not be that he passes by and meets no fruit on me and if not, my Maker may come unannounced to check if there be fruits on me”. ‘The tree knows that it is bearing fruits to please its Maker not in having people around to eat of the fruit…will you keep bearing fruits even if there were nobody around to see what you are doing and say well-done?

      At this point, I asked the Lord to help my heart for I knew I needed His GRACE to do this… He said, “My grace is sufficient unto you for My strength is made perfect in your weakness.” 2Cor12:9

      God’s grace will always be sufficient for us, in Jesus’ name. Remain blessed Forever.

  16. spm999888 on February 17, 2023 at 12:15 pm This is another fun and unusual sexual position you can try out to get out of boring sex. Regardless of the name of this sexual position, you do not need an actual pretzel for this. To do this, begin by kneeling over your partner. When you are in that position, they can now put a leg under your butt and the other around your waist. This is one of the best unusual sex positions because it offers powerful thrust at a sideways position, which makes sex more intimate.
