What am I missing out on?

I was just browsing through book reviews over on Library Thing. I encountered one about a book titled World War Z: an Oral History of the Zombie Wars. Part of that review reads: "This was surprisingly an emotional story. I was expecting to laugh and get spooked what I was not expecting was to get a bit teary eyed. This is not your humorous zombie story. Its about surviving a war with the zombies, Zacks or Gs. It is scary and very realistic. I kept on imagining in my head, "What if this really…See More

Jimmy Olsen's Blues

Hello, Book Bloggers! Deacon Solomon here. Seeing as how this is my first blog post, I figure I might as well start off by telling you what you've let yourselves in for. I write book reviews. I write about writers and writing. I write about journalism, and a lot of what I write isn't popular. "Jimmy Olsen's Blues" is the first of what I hope will be many essays.So here it is.Yours was not, in the beginning, a criminal nature, but circumstances changed it. At the age of nine, you stole sugar. At…See More

Profile Information

Favorite Book
Silverlock by John Myers Myers
About Me:
Off-duty Marine, ex-trucker, ex-mechanic, ex-computer technician, ex-farm boy, ex-student (MA, journalism), ex-technical writer, lifelong bookworm. I read what I please and write about what I read. I guess you could call me a critic of sorts -- except that I don't solicit review copies from authors and publishers.

I'll have a blog up in a week or ten days. For now I post everything I write on LibraryThing. I used to post at Blogcritics and would be still -- but editors there decided they could contribute to my work without my knowledge or permission. I called them out. Now I don't post there any more.

If I ever find a competent editor, I will marry him/her/it and post at that venue forever. Until then I'm here on Grub Street with the rest of you. I hope we can find a way to read and write and have fun. As Red Green says: we're all in this together. "I'm a man but I can change if I have to -- I guess."

Hi, I came across your blog, and I thought you would be the perfect person to contact.

My name is Jay Siva, the founder of EZBuyButton.com, an easy 'buy book' widget for authors. I'm contacting you today because I think you and your readers would love to know about the EZBuyButton widget I've created.

It is the most advanced 'buy now' widget for selling books. I make it free for authors and publishers, worldwide, to quickly and easily create and use our EZBuyButton widget to place on their website or blog to immediately increase the sales of their books, especially if their books are listed for sale in more than one retail store. I made it super easy, with just a few clicks they just copy & paste a piece of code onto their website/blog, and they're done.

The widget allows website visitors to select which device they'd like to use to read the author's book, and then select their preferred retail store that they'd like to purchase the book from. It also geolocates the visitor's location and will send the visitor to the correct country specific retail store so that they can buy the author's book. The widget is also fully customizable, and the author will have access to detailed real-time statistics of the use of their widget.

I would like to invite you to visit my website, and try out the EZBuyButton widget. I hope you find that my widget will be useful to you and your readers, including all the authors, literary agents, and publishers you're in contact with.

My website is http://www.ezbuybutton.com.

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them for you. Thank you for your time.

kindest regards,
Jay Siva
