Brett Battles The Silenced

 

Yesterday was just plain nuts, nuts, I tell you! Here is a brief recap of yesterday’s events, follow along with me and tell me if it wasn’t nuts. Vincent Zandri was nice enough to almost give away a major plot twist in our collaborated digital short story we just finished called: The Gang That Couldn’t Kindle Straight”. I think he was miffed that I let it spill he used my name and some guy named Tolstoy’s name in the same sentence. The exact context of how he used my name in…

The Wendigo

A Dr. Cathcart and his nephew Simpson go hunting for moose in the Canadian wilderness, accompanied by two Canadian guides and a native American cook.

On the surface this classic horror story by Algernon Blackwood revisits the sort of set-up that worked so well in The Willows. There are other similarities but they feel… Continue

My Goals as an Author

Every author should have goals, right?  I haven’t written mine out, but they are imprinted in my mind.  Of course, I’m probably not alone among authors who are striving to make the best seller lists.  As a newbie author, I have one book that was published in 2004 and another book coming out in November this year.  I have several works in progress and after the editing and rewriting processes will be trying to find homes with publishers for those WIP’s.  One of my main goals as a new author…

Hello everyone

 

  I joined recently and looking forward to "meeting" a lot of interesting people here... writers, travelers, photographers, journalists in the best sense of the word.   I have been running a series of sites since 1999, evolving over time.  I'm a photographer and writer.  I've been to around 27 countries and 40 states.  

 

   I read a lot of books and talk to a lot of people.   Just got back from the London Book Fair and some other business in UK.

Happy Birthday Jon Agee - April 19

When I was a special education teacher, I had my students spend a small part of each language arts class "working with words".  Students would manipulate letter cards to make words and then rearrange them to find new words.  It was a quick way to focus on word patterns and isolate the sounds we had been studying.  This week my children and I "worked with words" in some hilarious new ways by investigating books by Jon Agee.  We learned about:



- Palindromes (words or phrases spelled…

Slightly Dented Halos by L A Jackson

I am sure that L A Jackson and her family have earned their halos - and not the dented kind. It takes a special sort of angel to invite her aging in-laws to live with her. This short book covers the span of five years living with, and caring for, aging parents but it is not the sappy, self-promoting or self-pitying drivel you might expect.



Ms Jackson's writing style reminds me a lot of the late, great Erma Bombeck (am I dating myself with that statement??) There is no plot line to… Continue
