It is that time of the year again, it is Labor Day Weekend, and some people claim summer fun is over! I disagree!! The kids are back to school and that means…peace and quiet. Yes that forgotten lack of noise that
comes from the little rugrats or adolescents playing their video games. I for
one love our children, but don’t mind a little less noise and distractions. I
am getting old I guess. So, not to bore you anymore with any more of my ramblings,

How to Write the Great American Leaflet:
1. Stare at a blank screen for forty-minutes.
2. Place fingers over the keys, poised and ready for when inspiration strikes.
3. Check the internet for mail.
4. Get serious about writing and return to your still blank screen.
5. Take a phone call.

I'm new(ish) to the world of ebooks. Up to this point, many authors have felt ebooks were the second string player to traditional print media. These days, though, e-everything is taking off and books in digital form
are no exception. Every maker of the reading devices has upped their game and
the gadgets themselves are of such high quality now. As such, the marketing of ebooks has taken to

P.J. Parrish, as a crime writer, is a powerhouse – 10 New York Times bestsellers with her Louis Kincaid thrillers, the first, “Dark of the Moon”, out in 2000; and the most recent, “The Little Death”, out just this year.
I'm starting to get so techno-savvy, it's frightening! I've just uploaded my very first video on this site (and youtube, blogger, twitter and facebook). I'm now the proud owner of a blog and will soon have Down Among the Dead Men out as an ebook. This is the second novel in my humorous Rafferty & Llewellyn crime series and was first published by Macmillan/St Martin's Press and Worldwide in 93/94 and is long out of print. Now it's going to get a whole new life as an…Continue
The number of words in this post is going to be few. I am at a loss to adequately describe what I got to be a part of .The X-Men have been a big part of my collection from the number one issue. They were one of the
cornerstones of the collection I had till I had to let it go. That being said
this graphic novel is probably one of the best executed graphic novels I have
ever seen. It is just that good.
The team of Joss Whedon and…Continue

THE CONVICT'S SWORD was released a year ago, my last book with Penguin. I didn't get as many reviews as I'd hoped for, given that I was prouder of that novel that any of the earlier and well-reviewed books. Now I'm with a smaller publisher (Severn House) and reviews are even harder to come by. So I really didn't expect the pleasure of getting a review on last year's novel, and such an intelligent and well-written one one at that.
You may read it here:
In the mood for a good thriller, my wife Jeanne and I went to see George Clooney’s latest star turn, The American. All I can say is don’t bother. While I
don’t normally write movie reviews, I do write thrillers (The
Cutting, The Chill of Night) and, as a
thriller-writer, I expect a thriller to have a plot. Not necessarily a great plot. Not even a good plot.…

"The only thing we need now is a chandelier! It's just not complete without a chandelier! What about this one? How 'bout this one? Or this one? Chandelier!"
Hang some gaudy crap from the ceiling, because my site (http://www.benjaminsobieck.webs.com) has been renovated. I'll summarize as the paint dries.

Getting this post started was a tough one for me. I received an opportunity to read a novel by Lee Goldberg that he had penned a few moons ago, how many I am not sure. I think
most good novels are not like bread and don’t have a shelf life and get stale
and moldy after a certain date. The Walk
was originally printed in January 2004; mine was printed August 25, 2010. The
new technology is amazing. But I digress yet again.…

I'll be signing my novels from 2pm to 4pm, right after their noontime special story time for the kids. Stop by…Continue
