Personal Update: The Cost of Living

On a typical day, I very much enjoy being a homeowner. Rent becomes a mortgage payment, I have a yard the kids can play in, and I don’t need to worry about people above me getting rowdy. But inevitably things break, and then there’s no maintenance staff like in my old apartment building who will …

New Blog Posts to Come

Inspired by fellow author/blogger Berthold Gambrel, I’m going to try something new with my blog. He recently finished a series in which he breaks down some of the most memorable 90’s action films (you can read the last in the series here, posted just this morning), and that was fun to read. Therefore, in a …

Weekend Update: Some Progress

For a while now, my current work-in-progress Creed: Solomon’s Fortune has been giving me headaches. I think this was the toughest book I’ve written yet, and it took a long time for the full story to truly reveal itself to me. I took a couple breaks, jumped around in the timeline a bit, and just …

Book Review: Fields of Fire by James Webb

I knew of James Webb the politician before I knew of James Webb the author. I liked what he had to say in the 2016 Democratic primary debates, and would have gladly voted for him had he been the nominee. But that’s neither here nor there. Fields of Fire is a story that focuses primarily …

Weekend Update: Super Bowl 2022

Even if you don’t follow football at all, you were probably aware that this past weekend was the Super Bowl weekend. It’s watched by about 100 million people every year, making it one of the most American events of the year. Friends and families gather to eat a lot of good food, spend time together, …

Weekend Update: Free Books and Not-So-Free Dogs

Good morning, everybody! I’m back with another weekly update. Over the last two days I ran another ‘free book’ deal on Amazon Kindle. I do these every couple months, usually get a few downloads out of it. I usually announce this on Twitter but I forgot this time. So I went to check how many …

Book Review: “True Crime in the Civil War” by Tobin T. Buhk

Every now and then a little book faire thing shows up at work. There’s a guy with a table and a few movable shelves full of books. I usually don’t buy anything because they’re fairly pricey, but this one was only $15 (and I’d seen it a few times before). I’m something of a Civil …

Book Review: “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” by Ian Fleming

This is the third 007 book I’ve read in the past year and at this point I’m not sure if I’m going to read any more. Not that they’re bad, because that’s certainly not the case. Thus far each book has left me turning pages as fast as I could, breathless in a daring escape …

Midweek Update: Post-Holiday Edition

Time for an unexpected midweek post! I know I’d been somewhat neglecting my blog here over the past few weeks, what with Christmas and the New Year. It’s always a busy season seeing family, in-laws, traveling, and just relaxing. Anyway, I had a pretty great holiday seeing said family and getting extra time at home …
