Avi Steinberg Running the Books

This novel opened my eyes a little wider. Avi Steinberg has given us a narrative from the other side of life, willingly, the tale of a librarian in a prison. He meets all types of people, both male and female, and

their worlds collide. I am just going to give you a little taste of what is

said on the back cover: ”Running The Books is a trenchant personal exploration

of prison culture and an entertaining tale of one young man’s…

Stephen J. Cannell The Prostitutes Ball

I think most of us can envision many different things when we see a title such as this. This is a Shane Scully novel, and I am of the mind that it is one of the best, if not the best one of the series. Yes, I have read

them all. Maybe my memory of past novels is a bit clouded, but the narrative on

this one is so incredible that I haven’t had this much fun with an installment

of the character in a long time. Cannell puts us square into his world and

While traveling alone on horseback through a gloomy forest near Lake Biwa, northeast of Kyoto, Justice Ministry official Sugawara Akitada suddenly comes upon a filthy, shivering urchin who appears to be deaf and mute.

In the previous installment of I.J. Parker's ongoing saga, Akitada's young son Yori had perished in an epidemic, and out of a sense of desolation, perhaps coupled with guilt, he pulls the waif onto his horse and takes him to lodgings in nearby… Continue

The “Indie” Author – Playing Against a Stacked Deck?

Imagine hundreds of thousands of cars lined up at the border, any border, Canada, Mexico…drivers desperate to get in. A thousand border police, glancing at the drivers’ IDs, reacting to a few words, maybe a phrase or two, judging how the

drivers’ cars look, listening for a special voice… guessing at who will succeed

and who won’t in the utopia on the other side of the border. Once…

Words to the Wise

When speaking to others, I believe in enlightened self-interest. In other words, always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

Self -Published Sunday Mark Bouton How to Spot Lies Like The FBI

I really don’t read non –fiction too much, this though book I thought I needed to give a shot. I am really a poor poker player and at the very least I felt this could elevate my game so that I wouldn’t lose as many

pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. My buddies better look out now, not to

mention my youngest daughter when we play go fish. But seriously, this is a serious,

fact filled book that has many excellent tips that can help anyone.…

Author Update

My most recent book signing, at Borders in Woodbridge, VA, was a big success. I've sold out at this store in the past but this time they ordered enough books to last beyond my time there.

The American Dream

Okay, my American odyssey is now over, but here's a brief summary of my time there.

I started out by getting up at 3 a.m. My colleague from work, Nick who was accompanying me, picked me up and drove us to Manchester airport. From there it was a brisk flight to London. As I'd only had an hours sleep, I was not operating well, and the check-in to fly to New York when we arrived at Heathrow customs was a bit of a nightmare as I couldn’t understand the man asking me questions. He had a… Continue

Self-Published Sunday Tony Bertot The Birth of an Assassin

Hits, Hits, Hits. We are picking up a lot these on Sunday now and I wonder why. Is it that readers are looking for good novels to read? Possibly it is the snazzy title I came up with? It is catchy. I learned

something new this week in the fact that one of my favorite authors, Vince

Flynn, he of the Mitch Rapp series of novels , self–published himself back in

the day after getting 60 rejection letters. That means that there are…
