They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, BUT…

Time to choose the best book cover for Dulcinea and The Death Code! Number #1 or #2?  “Aspiring authors, get this through your head. Cover art serves one purpose, and one purpose only, to get potential customers interested long enough to pick up the book to read the back cover blurb. In the internet age that means the thumb nail image needs to be interesting enough to click on. That’s what covers are for.”  Larry Correia...

Allow yourself to discover the world in a new way…

Ray’s message for you today: There’s always room for more laughter, joy, and love… Wait, about love! Valentine is on the way, and I prepared a present for you all, a story about Venus de Milo (read this evening).  The quote of the day: “Be careful about reading health books.

Book Review “Artemis”, Andy Weir

“Building a civilization is an ugly thing.” Andy Weir I never read (or watched) “The Martian”, but because I’m trying to write a sci-fi story, I decided to spend some of my free time studying the genre. “Artemis” caught my eye because it: Is short, Has a minimalistic design, Utilizes a nice font Has lots of dialogues What can I say about the book (in general)? Seems like the author figured it all out (pronounced with the...

I had a strange life as a child, with lots of weird events constantly happening around me. It was then I began to realize – something...
