Today's Question

We all know that a doe is a deer, a FEMALE deer. Some animals have gender specific names, and if that's good for the goose then it's good for the gander. So, what do you call a male ladybug?

Dean M. DeLuke Shedrow

I didn’t know if this was going to be something I could enjoy, a mystery surrounding race horses. I know absolutely nothing about horse racing or horses in general other than the fact that they have four legs,

consume food, and it comes out the other end in large steaming piles. Fortunately

for me this novel was not a big steaming pile.

I was as shocked as anyone that I got a groove on this. I would say the reason was that Dean…

Author Update

This last weekend held a pair of fun events in two states. The Borders Express in Montgomery Mall has been remodelled and the whole mall has changed a bit since my last visit, but the Maryland readers were welcoming as usual. My book signing at the Borders superstore in Fairfax, Virginia was even more successful. This was a first visit but you can bet I'll be back there soon. All in all, a great weekend for signing books.

"4 Killer Crime Stories in 4 Minutes" Benefits My Kidney

I haven't been very public about this, but earlier this year I was diagnosed with end-stage renal disease. This meant my wife and I needed to move our lives one state over and receive a kidney from a donor. Luckily, that happened before things got really bad.

Unluckily, kidney transplants are extremely expensive. The care required after the operation is also extensive. It isn't like changing a tire. It's like changing how your entire… Continue

Blast From The Past Joseph Finder Vanished

Last Sunday, I shared with you a series of novels I thought would make you laugh and cringe at the same time. This week I have a novel for you that have recently been released in paperback, Joseph Finder’s Vanished. To

you tomorrow, maybe. Me being the

Yankees fan I was raised to be, always can…

Digital Short Saturday Carla René Zen in the Art Of Absurdity

Please before you come after me to explain how this fits into the category of digital shorts, it’s very simple. Carla Rene has put together a novel of short digital shorts that in total has a word count of

16,580 words. I am not going to go into each and every short she has. Instead I

am going to focus on one, the cute little diddy she put together that has the

childhood reading characters, Dick & Jane, and Jack & Jill in a race. I

like the…

Digital Short Saturday True Stories Vincent Zandri

I find that many things are true in this world, one of which is that I have quickly become a big fan of Zandri’s. He penned another digital short available from StoneHouse Ink- True Stories. The digital short is 4560

words of pure emotion; I was totally wiped out when I was done reading it. The

naked emotion he is able to convey in his brief narrative is nothing short of


The cover has…

Digital Short Saturday Jason McIntyre Road Markers

Saturday is upon us and here we go again, Digital Short Saturday. Each week that I investigate this new tool authors are using to help us see into their creative process, the more I am getting sucked into the

enjoyment of it. I happened upon this digital short because I became friends of

the author on Goodreads. We exchanged messages and he said as a side note, I

have some novels written but I don’t know if they are your thing, having

checked out my…
