Happy 128th Birthday Agatha Christie

Waldina

Today is the 128th birthday of Agatha Christie.  At one time, I had this grand idea that I was going to read every one of her books in order of publication.  That is a lot of reading.  I didn’t get very far, but it was not her fault, I fall in and out of love with reading.  There are points in my life where reading is much easier, if I have a commute or something.  I love all the Agatha Christie movies, Miss Marple and even the Tommy and Tuppence ones, but especially Hercule Poirot (David Suchet portrayal).  The books are quick and clever and keep you guessing.  The world is a better place that she was in it and still feels the loss that she has left.

The Outsider – Review.

S C Richmond

4.5/5.0 A solid King read.

The Outsider by Stephen King.

Well, finally I got through this book (no fault of Mr King) and it was a good read, after I’ve read a few that just didn’t do it for me, this one was much more to my liking, it read more like Kingy was going back to the style we all know and love and by far the best of the detective style novels he’s turned his hand to, there are some gory parts but it wouldn’t be a King book without them now would it! This is a novel I would definitely recommend to any reader.

The Blurb –

When an eleven-year-old boy is found murdered in a town park, reliable eyewitnesses undeniably point to the town’s popular Little League coach, Terry Maitland, as the culprit. DNA evidence and fingerprints confirm the crime was committed by this well-loved family…

Short Story/Serial Monday – First Impressions – The Conclusion

Author Don Massenzio

Well, this serial came to a natural end in this week’s installment. I was able to end it to my satisfaction and give it a subtle tie to one of my other serials as well as mix in some call backs to my third Frank Rozzani novel.

I’ve enjoyed writing this serial and look forward to putting it together with other related short stories in a super-sized book.

On a side note, I’ve updated my Author Directory and Serial pages. You can now find all  the authors I’ve interviewed over the past 3 years and the serials that I’ve written, two of which have become books this year.

Please enjoy this last installment of First Impressions.

Now not so very long ago Melanie was a guest on my blog quite recently, but I really want to give her extra exposure as she was a huge help to me in putting together some really great graphics which I used for my promo and I’ve been using them as tweets as well. This is one talented lady.

My Top 5 Favorite Books

TheMomsomnia

Hello all! I’ve done a lot of posts about movies and actors but I’ve yet to talk about books. Here’s my list (in no particular order) of favorite books.

1. Remember Me by Christopher Pike

I’ve read this book at least five times and I still want to read it. It’s suspenseful and fun and full of surprises.

2. The Tale of Desperaux by Kate DiCamillo

Sure, sure… It’s a children’s book but it’s one I’ll probably continue reading the rest of my life. The story is amazing and the characters are ones you just want to keep returning to. It’s the only book from my childhood that I’ll continue reading over and over. (The cartoon is adorable too!)

3. The Secret Circle by L.J Smith

It was a close tie between this series and Vampire Diaries. Secret Circle won due to the simple fact that it bothered me how…
