When I began kicking around the idea of writing my erotic novella, The Bluest Sea, which was recently released by Breathless Press, I got various and sundry responses. Some folks thought I had turned a DANGEROUS corner; others thought me brave. But not one person surmised my real motive: writing an erotic novel is just plain FUN.

On an unusually warm day in early November of 2011, Manny was hanging on the corner of 24th and Oxford Street with his older brother Kiree and their best friend D-Ball.

Times had been good for Manny and business had been booming for both he and his brother. They had become large over the years in the hustling game and were making more money than they…

Someone recently asked me what defines Dutch literature. For a moment I found myself in a tight spot: I had to come clean. Continue
I thought about a few sentences from Herman Koch’s novel Finally War (Eindelijk oorlog) that conjure up this feeling very well: For me, it begins on arrival at the station: the feeling of being in a boiling hot room where none of the windows open.
A few observations in no particular order:
The Dutch trade right around the globe,…

I have been a barista and I am currently an author. Also I love both coffee and books.
When the cold bite of winter and the hustle and bustle of the holidays make you weary, what is the perfect pick-me up? Coffee. And not just any coffee but flavored, spiced, milk added, foam topped, creamy drizzles dripping down the sides, coffee.
Fortunately, you can find your fix on almost every corner with Starbuck's freshly brewed, sugary spiked Gingerbread…

The thought police would get him just the same.

The story is about Winston Smith who lives in Oceania. The world that he lives in is surrounded by surveillance and continual threat of being caught for even thinking… Continue

About “Shakespeare” by Another Name:
The debate over the true author of the Shakespeare canon has raged for centuries. Astonishingly little evidence supports the traditional belief that Will Shakespeare, the actor and businessman from Stratford-upon-Avon, was the author. Legendary figures such as Mark Twain, Walt… Continue

Ink Heart By Cornelia Funke Smoothie Review
A couple years ago, I watched this fantasy movie. It was something I rented having no idea of what it was. It wasn’t the best movie in the world, but it was so imaginative that no matter how much I try to forget it, it will just hang in my head because it was just so original. It was called Ink Heart. And when I found out it was based on a book, I just had to read it. I actually went out…

The Yattering And The Jack By Clive Barker
Overall Rating: A attempt at a overdone idea that sadly missed it’s mark.
This is a another short story by Clive Bark out of the “Book of Blood.” And regardless of the cheesy titles, I like what I have read so far. It is great to see someone with their own style rather than ripping off someone else. So this is the first story. It’s called the “The Yattering and The…
