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?

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.

Kindle Sale

The price on the Kindle version of The Troubleshooter has been reduced to $2.99. The Troubleshooter was not the first Hannibal Jones novel published, but it was the first I wrote. It finally reached publication as a "prequel" to Blood and Bone, but it really is the book that should be read first. And now it's available at a really nice…

Clash of the Cliches

Sometimes it seems that in trying to cover every situation cliches contradict one another. For example, if quitters never win, and winners never quit, then who is the fool who said, "Quit while you're ahead?"

The Latest

As it has in the past, this year's Hanover Book Festival was a blast. I got to reconnect with lots of old pals from the Richmond area, and made some new friends in the dialog class I gave. And even though I'm no country music fan, I enjoyed Kari Smith. With her great voice accompanied by her own guitar or keyboard, her work felt more folk than twang. Again, cheers to Joanne Liggan…

Lost and Found

I lose a lot of productive time because I put my reading glasses down in the wrong place and can’t find them when I need them. Ultimately I end up buying yet another pair – at which point the missing pair magically reappears. This works for keys too. In fact, the easiest way to find anything lost… Continue
