The Age of Self Publishing



Up until recently I didn’t think I was old enough to really say, “back in the day”, but apparently at a ripe 31 years old, I am. Back in my day, cell phones were a luxury and pagers were the sign of the times. Back in

my day, there was no Facebook or Myspace. Back in my day, all of our books were

hardcover or paperback.



I look around me now and…

Lee Child Worth Dying For

Happy Monday to all!! We are starting off the week with a huge novel, Lee Childs Worth Dying For. I really enjoyed the spirited discussion’s that some of us had after I posted the Lee Child discusses Jack

Reacher vs. Joe Pike you tube video. Excuse my surprise and dismay as so many

of you immediately jumped into the Joe Pike camp, for shame. My question is,

why just limit the question to Joe Pike? Why isn’t anyone mentioning Mitch

Rapp? I think the list…

Changes, Changes and still more changes!!

Hello again! I hope that all of you had a great Thanksgiving with your families and are looking forward to a very nice Christmas season. We have made some changes recently here @ Gelati’s Scoop and I just wanted to take

a moment out of the day and explain the whys and what nots to you if you don’t

mind. The reasoning I have is very simple: I really don’t have a choice in the

simple category; it is just who I am.



I think that as…

Guest Post RJ McDonnell author of Rock&Roll Rip-Off

Sometimes you just have to break away. You leave behind family, friends and career to pursue your passion. And it often turns out that what you left behind is what shapes your future. Scranton resident, R.J. McDonnell can attest to

that.



McDonnell is this year's winner of the Premiere Book Awards "Novel of the Year" in the Mystery/Thriller category for "Rock & Roll Rip-Off," the second novel in his Rock & Roll Mystery Series. He is

Graphic Classics, (shame on you for missing a post, especially about a friend

of ours from Linkedin) please feel free to check out our archives and knock

Graphic Novel Friday The Adventures of Unemployed Man

I enjoy reading graphic novels for many reasons and The Adventures of Unemployed Man is a prime example. It takes the basic premise that the economy is bad right now, but incrementally worse if you are the one

laid off and without a job. The graphic novel does its job through incredibly

sarcastic humor and a poignant narrative that is bound to hit home with those

that are struggling and those that are rich and cruising along. No one goes

away unscathed…

Romantic Wednesday Barbara Briggs Ward The Reindeer Keeper

Although the title and cover of this book lead you to believe this is just another Christmas Story, The Reindeer Keeper is so much more. It's true; it does have all the elements of an awesome Christmas story.

Barbara Briggs Ward's descriptions of the characters and the settings are very

detailed and allow you to paint vivid pictures in your mind. The story

definitely is centered around a Christmas and winter them. You almost feel as

if you are with Abbey…

Carla Rene' The Gaslight Journal

When I got this I didn’t know what to expect. The last time I read something by this author it was a series of digital shorts put together: they were cute and humorous. Please feel free to go back through our archives for

that. Today though, we are featuring a full length feature by Carla Rene’ that

is almost a 180 degree turn from that, a Christmas story, The Gaslight Journal.

Here is the synopsis of the novel:”

Lori Armstrong No Mercy

I am a little late in discovering this novel; it was suggested by a reader of our blog, Gelati’s Scoop. I am glad they made the suggestion. Let’s get right to the pertinent information on the novel, first

the author, Lori Armstrong. ”Lori Armstrong is proud to be a fourth generation

South Dakotan. Lori left the firearms industry in 2000 to pursue her dream of

writing crime/mystery fiction. The first book in the Julie Collins mystery

series, BLOOD TIES…

Oliver North American Hereos in Special Operations

Big week and big day here @ The Scoop. We are leading off the day with a book that reveals some amazing real life heroes, humanizes them, describes them as real people, and then details the moments of true valor they

had. It is hard not to turn the pages in this book and not have a sense of awe

at the sacrifices these men and women make on a daily basis so we can enjoy the

types of freedoms that we have as Americans. I want to share a few things from

and…

Self-Published Sunday David Alderman Black Earth- The Broken Daisy

Hello and welcome to another Self-Published Sunday. Today we start off with the second novel from David Alderman in the Black Earth Series, The Broken Daisy. This novel is a bit longer than usual, 527 pages, but it

seems to go quicker than most I have read lately. David Alderman has put

together a sci-fi/paranormal /futuristic rollercoaster ride that just does not

want to leave your hands. The pages turn quickly and the action is furious.…

Digital short Saturday Vincent Zandri Moonlight Mafia

I don’t know if there is a hotter author out there right now. I mean someone that is just pumping out quality material and having it hit a nerve. Vincent Zandri is just all that and more: he is putting out novels,

digital shorts, giving engaging interviews to the media and playing the drums

in the band BliSTeRz. The reason I mention the last, is that on Thursday, Turkey

Day, Thanksgiving I am going to be

running a few things on the blog, and he is mostly…

Digital short Saturday Guest Post Mark Maciejewski

Don’t Short the Short:By: Mark Maciejewski



In my opinion the old adage “good things come in small packages” is never truer than when it is applied to works of fiction. The short story format, although less popular and lauded than its big brother “the Novel”

is a very important part of the literary landscape. Over the years in fact it

has grown to become my favorite mode of storytelling.



I think that the…
