SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK
Whew. Was 2011 an exhausting year, or what? It felt like the whole world spent the last twelve months running a marathon at internet speed. No wonder my feet hurt.
It may turn out to be something of a watershed year for me, as I accomplished one of my life’s biggest goals. No, I didn’t get into Bill Gates’ will. No, I didn’t get the word “snow” banished from the dictionary. No, I didn’t win a lifetime supply…Continue

Get a new e-reader for Christmas? Sure you did. Time to fill it, and why not start with an action-adventure-romantic comedy-mystery? That way you have a lot of the genres covered, right from the beginning. And if you’re old fashioned like me, you’re still going to need something to read in the dead of winter.
Storm Chaser is available at:

Merry Christmas, everyone!
This article originally appeared in the insert of this week’s Albion New Era newspaper:
When I was a kid, we had a fake Christmas tree that no one bothered even pretending might be real.
It was an aluminum pole with holes in it, like a great silver stick. We’d take the arrow-straight branches out of their paper tubes, fluff out the bright, unnaturally green “needles” of shredded aluminum, and stick them in the…Continue

SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK
I was going to do something serious for my Christmas column this year. It’s a serious time; besides, as I write this there’s a special on Discovery about various disasters that could destroy the world.
Way to get into the spirit, Discovery!
But serious times are when we need to lighten up the most. That’s why all those great movie musicals were popular during the Great Depression; it might…Continue

In addition to the original article about book signings posted on the Writers of Mass Distraction site, the article is here with photos:
“Near the end of my second book signing, my host produced a bottle of Tylenol from a drawer, which instantly made me think: ‘Ah – that’s what I forgot to bring!’”

Apparently this is a big day for ordering off the internet, so this would be a good day to get Storm Chaser in time for holiday giving season. Don’t we need some light, cheerful storytelling right now? Storm Chaser has all that fun stuff: storms, fires, crashes, accident-prone stalkers … what could be more upbeat?
Naturally, you can still order it on my website, at www.markrhunter.com, or from the publisher at…Continue

SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK
I’ve been fighting the mother of all sinus infections this week … which is not a comment about my mother, mind you.
Why are really big things called “The Mother Of”, anyway? Seems a bit insulting to mothers. You know what? I’ve been fighting the cousin of all sinus infections. Think that cousin from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, who shows up with his brood, parks his RV on your lawn,…Continue

I'm going to be on a calendar. No, really.
Okay, actually the cover of Storm Chaser's going to be on a calendar:
Not because of anything I did, but because my cover was done by Whiskey Creek Press Art Director Gemini Judson, who's not only an amazing artist but also a writer, herself. Don't believe me? Shame on you: Check out her somewhat PG-13…
