Morning Walk

Greetings from the Hermit Writer. Walked down to the river with Sissy this morning. Weather is awesome.

Did you catch "Triv on Guard?"

I Have a Cover

Greetings from the Hermit Writer. I have a cover for my work in process. Now I have to get busy and finish the thing...stop tweaking the art.

My First Motorcycle Outing

Greetings from the recovering Hermit Writer.

Managed a short ride with Sissy this Temple Terrace Park on the Hillsborough River. The river is down about three feet. We need rain.

You up to reading a short little fantasy?

What I'm Up 2

The Hermit Writer, here. The torn bicep is improving. Yeah. May still be a week or so before I'm out carrying a camera around. So what have I been up to? Working on Book 3 of my Shadows series, and playing with possible covers. I thought I had one...then decided it didn't have the gravitas I needed. So right now I'm looking at these two possibilities. One is my image. So probably can't be very objective.

What do you think? (L or R)

J. A. Konrath - TIMECASTER

This guy is the best known Indie author in America, so he doesn't need the shout out, but since I finished the I am.

This novel IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. You have to love SF. And you can't have an issue with vulgarity, profanity, or sexual context my mom would consider way over the line.

But the action is five star, as is the humor.

I picked this up when it was $0.00. It's gone up to $4.99 now. Oh well. It's all timing.

Fishin' at Black Lake - An Audio Short Story

My lovely wife helped me create an audio version of one of my favorite chapters in EXPIRING COVENANT.

Not a perfect copy...but the process gave me an idea what it will take to create my own audio book.

I hope you'll visit and give it a listen.

Caroline-Hanson - LOVE IS DARKNESS

I finished a better than average Indie, vampire-romance I can let you know about. (Read into that it isn't a 'strong' recommendation, but I finished the novel, and with a thousand books in my to-read pile, that says something. I am a very tough critic and don't stick with a book long if it is lacking.)

This novel is a lot more erotic than I read. The story timeline had holes, the POV was a bit messy, editing not as good as it could have been, which grated this author...but the average reader probably won't even notice. If you don't have an issue with a lot of sexual talk, using words like 'member' and 'staff' ... you know what I'll probably get several hours of entertaining reading out of Love is Darkness.

Like the cover, the story is on the dark side. Not a fun frolic. It is pretty sexy.

And hey, the price is right. $0.00.

Out of Commission

I tore my right bicep trying to stop a dog fight last Saturday.

Worst pain I've ever experienced in my life. A lot of swelling and bruising. So if you notice I don't have anything but writing-related posts for a while, give me some kind thoughts over the mental airwaves. I could use them.

LOOSE SCREW - Rae Davies

The cozy mystery may be my new favorite, fun read. I read this ditty this weekend and it was the epitome of entertainment. I loved Lucy. Love that she wasn't perfect, but had a heart yeah big. Of course she drew the interest of the hunky alpha male of little Helena, Montana. The way it should be. Also, Lucy loves dogs. What else is there to say?

By all means go out and grab your copy. How could you go wrong. It costs an affordable $0.00
