Review: "Ruin Falls: A Novel" by Jenny Miclhman

A vacation can highlight the strain inside a marriage. The simple thing at home in the normal confines becomes a bit more problematic out on the road. Throw in the stress of taking two small children on the road and that strain is increased. Liz Daniels knew that there were some issues in her marriage to Paul even if she never fully acknowledged them. Minor control stuff and usually she could find a work around to deal with it without anything turning into a major problem. Much harder to…

Writing as a Career

The recurring topic of making a living as a writer has bubbled up in several locations over the past couple of weeks, prompting occasionally heated discussions in social media. Not that anyone cares what I think—nor am I saying you should care; this might all be a waste of valuable time you could have spent watching the Reince Preibus viral porn video—but a thought came to mind, and what are blogs for except as places for writers to vomit up thoughts?
The gist of these…

Review: "The Dead Will Tell: A Kate Burkholder Novel" by Linda Castillo

The past is never truly buried. As any mystery reader knows, the past often comes back with a vengeance leaving a trail of bodies and carnage in its wake. Such is the case here in The Dead Will Tell: A Kate Burkholder Novel by Linda Castillo. The author once again takes readers to the Amish country she has made familiar in another tale where the past is almost as big a character as the actual characters themselves.

 

The latest in this very good series begins in…

Another good year at Bookstock

There is a distinctive change in my signings these days: I'm actually making money.

Most of us who write never talk about the pay, which is usually abysmal. We write because we must, and we write because we have something to say and want people to hear it. Money is nice, but no one being realistic expects to make a fortune.

Most of my signings over the years have ranged from quiet to excellent: before this year, probably the best one took place several years ago at the Borders…

Review: "The Untreed Detectives" edited by J. Alan Hartman

After a short introduction to the book by, publisher J. Alan Hartman, it is on to the twelve short stories. Some are written by names you may recognize. Others by names that are unfamiliar to you. All authors involved have weaved a complex tale very worthy of their inclusion in The Untreed Detectives anthology released last year.

 

Kara L. Barney leads things off with “A Knife in the Dark.” This story is set in the time before Sherlock became legendary. Watson has…

Review: "The Shamus Sampler II" edited by Jochem Vandersteen

The 13 stories in the book are all good ones though they go about things in very different ways. By doing so the authors show in very practical terms the argument put forth by author Timothy Hallinan in the introduction that the private…
