I'm almost at the end of my February Blog Crawl. It's been fun but a little crazy. I'm not sure I could do this more than once a year!
The Post - Being Precise

I reviewed "The Blackhouse" by Peter May for The Big Thrill, the newsletter of the International Thriller Writers. This book reminded me that terms like unique and cutting edge still belong in the crime novel lexicon. In addition to being a great story, this book is probably like nothing you have read before. http://www.thebigthrill.org/2011/01/the-blackhouse-by-peter-may/
Could Borders have possibly avoided or softened the disasterous condition they now occupy?
Got Vampires? Looking for a coven? Laurie Bowler has that and much, much more here in Moon Rising. Before we get to the novel, a piece of business: Laurie will be our guest on our blogtalk show The G-ZONE, on Thursday at 8am EST. You read that correctly, the live time is 8am EST. Laurie lives in England so there is a bit of a time difference. Our breakfast is her late lunch. What is between the covers of this vampire/romance/paranormal novel you ask?

Happy Monday to all and thanks for checking in. We have a monster week ahead of us and we are going to start the week off with a bang, the works of CQ Scafidi.

Part two of our posts today involves chapter two from The Breaker Series. Floyd Buck Periwinkle is the author of this series, sorry he has three names. I was considering cutting one out to stay with the theme of two but he might take offense and eliminate me. I would prefer to avoid that. Just a reminder: Tomorrow is Self–Published Sunday, and on Monday we have CQ Scafidi as our guest on The G-Zone blogtalk radio. CQ is the award winning author of Time Couriers and also he has begun the new…Continue
