I'm normally not a fan of spy thrillers. They're okay, but they've never held my attention for long. I've never even seen the Jason Bourne movies. So when Paul Blake's back cover starts with "Alec Foster is no Jason Bourne," I took an interest. I'd met Paul Blake on Twitter and read a few of … Continue reading Book Review: “A Young Man’s Game” by Paul Blake
I hadn't had butterflies like this since I first went up in the Superman Tower of Power at Six Flags St. Louis (I screamed, but I screamed like a manly man, darn it!). Richard Dawkins is one of the best-known, most-vocal, and most-influential atheists of our time. And from what I'd heard, The God Delusion … Continue reading Why “The God Delusion” Poses Little Threat to Christianity
I was already a Mark Carver fan after reading Indelible, which I reviewed here, but I have to say I enjoy Beast even better.

And I'm certainly not writing to children, not this time at least. Plus, I self-published this novella. I can make my own rules, right? So...why did I change my tune … Continue reading Why I Cut Some Adult Content out of my Adult Book
Happy Launch Day! God, I am so sick. As luck would have it, I got bitten by a spider. As luck would have it, that bite got infected. As luck would have it, I'm sick as a dog on my own launch day. Boo. See? I'm too sick to even have an exclamation point after … Continue reading It’s Heeeeere! Ferryman Is Available in ALL Formats!
Go on the internet and say you don't like something and you'll immediately be graced with misspelled cuss words, racism, sexism, and the general frothing of humanity's dregs. Or at least get a fervent, "Nuh-uh!" But did you know that the way you say something changes the reaction you get? If you experience a book, … Continue reading Why I Hate What You Love
