book review: The Passage by Justin Cronin Sometimes I think my wife and I are the kiss of death to TV shows. Whenever we really get into a new one--canceled. (Don't get me started on "Emergence".)  But it gives us a chance to check out the almost always superior book version if there is one. So when another great show "The Passage" got canceled we just transitioned over to the Justin Cronin novel it was based on which is even better than the show--if you have the time.  Oh yeah. The time. Lookin

Book review: Her Last Resort by Fiona McGier It's not often that a romance novel starts off with the female lead killing somebody.  It's just another day at the office for CIA spy Stella Taylor ... except it shouldn't be because Stella is retired after thirty years and there's no reason for her to be targeted by a series of frankly amateur assassins. She flees yet again this time ending up at a Lake Superior-area Minnesota resort with her movie star daughter and the resort's owner a hunky Russia

Passing in review--again I got another great book review this one for Radio Red:  https://www.amazon.com/review/RHZ7LR0C7RZZP/?_encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B01MRZ52DM  That's four reviews in less than two weeks! The only thing better would be if the doctor told me I was registering minus on the cholesterol scale and needed to eat more chocolate. I know that won't happen because the doc refused to change my test results even after I offered him half the candy--stupid Hippocratic oath.  He doesn't even own

book review: The Twelve by Justin Cronin  I planned to take a break from long works after reading The Passage which I described as "War and Peace and More War". But my wife wanted to forge ahead into the sequel and it's hard to say no considering how good the original was.  The Passage covered an entire century starting with an ill-advised government experiment (aren't they all?) and ending with a world overrun by what we could loosely call vampires with a few human settlements hanging on. Two o

Book Review: The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin I was going to make this short: I can't say much about the plot or characters because that would spoil the first two books of this trilogy. But there's so much going on and so much to talk about and so many many pages that I'm not sure "short" counts for anything here. The City of Mirrors is the finish of a thousand year story begun in The Passage. As we open enough time has passed since the second book The Twelve that younger members of an apoca

New Year's Writin' Eve I wondered about the best way to start the New Year. I rarely drink--and if I didn't start drinking in 2020 I never will. I have no desire to see Miley Cyrus' Epiglottis on New Years Rockin' Eve (or whoever the most recent too young to be showing so much skin singer is). What I do want in 2021 is to get published again. So I plan to start the New Year with new rounds of submissions to publishers magazines and literary agents. I have short stories already out but novel

Cutting edge book editing So the first draft of The Source Emerald weighed in at 67515. The second draft topped out at 70294. Now I've finished the third draft and the new word count? 69028. An increase of 2779 words followed by a decrease of 1266 words. But not the same words. My third draft was a seek and destroy mission against certain words that can weaken your writing. Words that can make your writing too passive such as "was". Adverbs. Words ending with "ing" that can become repetitive.

Book Review: Stardust by Neil Gaiman I think I've said this before but one wonders why I should bother reviewing a twenty year old book whose author surely doesn't need my help. Ah but it was new to me. Emily and I found Neil Gaiman's Stardust on audio book read by the author himself and enjoyed it immensely during some long trips over the summer of 2019. (I wrote this in early 2020 so if it seems a year old ...) In the mid 1800's young Tristran Thorn lives in a little village called Wall whic

book review: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Rikk Deckard is a bounty hunter in a futuristic city who flies his hover car around while on the hunt for escaped androids who need to be "retired". Gosh that sounds an awfully lot like the plot of the movie "Blade Runner" doesn't it? "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick was first published in 1968 and was indeed the inspiration for the 1982 film of the different name. The setting was moved for the movie from the post-nuclea

Why We Love Trouble is a mystery See that little play on words I did with the title? No? Never mind. I finished the final polishing of We Love Trouble. It tops out at 81000 words--still the longest novel I've written yet. Boy is writing a mystery tough: characters suspects clues red herrings ghosts horses Bigfoot ... Well it's that kind of story. I already have Beowulf: In Harm's Way Fire On Mist Creek and Summer Jobs Are Murder at various points in the submission process and I think I'll
