Interview with Karen Dionne

It is my great privilege and honor to interview fellow Michigander and author Karen Dionne just two days before her new book, Boiling Point, is released. Karen, along with Chris Graham, founded the writers forum Backspace in 2004, which I managed to find, to my eternal gratitude, shortly after its inception. Her first novel, Freezing… Continue reading Interview with Karen Dionne

Sunday Brunch – 11/21/2010

It’s been a hectic week between trying to crawl my exhausted self to the finish line of Meter Maids Eat Their Young and jumping back onto the promo wagon for Stealing The Marbles. Jayne, my editor over at Rebel, who has had to doff a PR hat to go with her Editors hat, got me… Continue reading Sunday Brunch – 11/21/2010

Remembering Kurt Vonnegut

Anytime the subject of favorite authors comes up, Kurt Vonnegut is always the first author that springs to my mind. I’ve read a lot of books over the years, enough to fill a medium sized library, and I’ve been influenced by a lot of writers. But Vonnegut influenced more than just my writing, he influenced… Continue reading Remembering Kurt Vonnegut

Books, The Ultimate Entertainment

“Buddy, can ya spare a dime?” Back in 29 a dime might have gotten you an overcooked cuppa Joe and a stale donut. Today, it wouldn’t buy you the paper cup. In this twenty-first century example of financial crash-and-burn, entertainment is going to be hard to come by. Most any form of entertainment, things we… Continue reading Books, The Ultimate Entertainment

Rolling

I’ve been on a roll lately and haven’t had the time for the blog that I would like. But then, from the total lack of comments I get and noticing in my stat program that most of the hits I do get are coming from spammers, I suppose it doesn’t make much difference how frequently… Continue reading Rolling

Stealing The Marbles

The end of 06 draws nigh, it’s snowing in Albuquerque, and I have finally finished the rewrite of Stealing The Marbles. I liked the story well enough the first time around. It got me an agent, however unprofessional that agent may have conducted himself during the time he pretended to represent the book. I must… Continue reading Stealing The Marbles

I Don’t Do Book Reviews

I don’t do book reviews. I might tout a book I really like, as I have from time to time in this blog. I’ll talk to the buyers at Indie bookstores, suggest books to my local library and talk my friends into at least considering the purchase of books I really like. But I don’t… Continue reading I Don’t Do Book Reviews
