I had to really think about this one because I have read so many good books this month. But I have to go with:

I know I have been MIA lately and I apologize for that but A LOT has happened this month. I don't want to get into details about everything but know I will be back soon. I am currently reading Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer Armentrout and I hope to finish it later today. When I finish it I will post my review and hopefully pick up the next book in the series soon.
I got a job! I'm not sure I really want it but sometimes you have to do things that you really don't want to do, that's life. I am a transcriber for a website, not sure how well I'm doing in it right now but I'm really trying. I have only been working for one day and I all ready feel like I'm screwing everything up. Anyway enough of my sob story here, this blog is really not for that so no more of that.
After the last couple of weeks I have learned a lot. I learned that nothing is permanent -except maybe tattoos. So live life to it's fullest and appreciate EVERYTHING you have because you never know when it could be gone. Continue Reading
Why don't we start off by you telling us a little about yourself?
I’m an incredibly buff, handsome 53 year old fiction writer (emphasis on fiction and you’re not including a pic with this, right?). My novel, Pursuit, is coming out in August. Like my first two novels, it’s fact based fiction. My first two novels were published by Talk Miramax Books, a subsidiary of Miramax Films. How they got published was pretty interesting. A friend of mine had moved to L.A. to become a screenwriter. Around that same time, I finished my first novel and titled it, ’57, Chicago (a dateline from when the story takes place). ’57, Chicago was the story of a bookie, fight promoter and boxer and was really a fight story told from the perspectives of the bookies and gangsters surrounding the sport. I sent the manuscript to my buddy just to see if it was readable and he loved it. He then called me and said, “I know this young movie producer that I see at Starbucks every morning. Do you mind if I give the manuscript to him?” I obviously said, no problem. My buddy gave the script to the guy who then called me and said, “This is the best book I’ve ever read. If you’ll give me a free option (period in which he could market the property) I’ll sell this to Miramax Films.” I did…and that’s exactly what happened. They bought the movie rights and did a two book deal with me. ’57, Chicago was published in 2001 and ’46, Chicago (not a sequel but a standalone novel) was published in 2002. I have a lot of funny stories from that whole process, particularly the film side. Continue Reading
Over the last year I've gone against faceless women, disfigured spirits, and grotesque revenants. Some people keep dangerous hobbies; skydiving and driving at monster truck rallies and glacier surfing. Me? I cast my soul into the churning waters of potential damnation and wait for a bite.
