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.

Writing Challenge “One”

Before we begin, check the post about my book, written by A. Shepherdson (Blog from UK) – So Absurd… Rules: answer 11 questions below.  1. One person who inspired you. Helen Keller. “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”  2.

Sharing some interesting quotes about “civilization”.  1. “If there hadn’t been women we’d still be squatting in a cave eating raw meat, because we made civilization in order to impress our girlfriends.” Orson Welles 2. “All of us have to be prevaricators, hypocrites, and liars every day of our lives; otherwise the social structure would fall into pieces the first day.

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go…

Travel far enough and you’ll find yourself… As you know, Christmas 2018 I spent in Spain. Again 😂! At the end of this post you can check my pictures. What to expect this month? Reviews. And more reviews. Ray’s style. I read a lot of books, so I’m going to “rain” my fresh & dirty opinions on you.  To check my weekly plan – page “About Ray” “The Pearl Territory”, chapter 4 (2000 words) will be posted tomorrow evening....
