New York State Senate Passes Bill Outlawing "Revenge Porn"


The New York Senate recently passed legislation criminalizing “revenge porn.” The bill sponsored by Senator Joseph Griffo (R-C-I, Rome ), would establish the crime of non-consensual dissemination of sexually explicit images, also known as “revenge porn.” Senator Griffo said, “In an era of increased text messaging, social networking, and emailing, people in intimate relationships sometimes share pictures with each other, some of which may be sexually explicit in nature. However, recipients of these images do not always keep the images private and have the ability to widely disseminate the photos on the Internet. Posting these photographs online should be a crime because it damages the reputat...

Beautiful New Mexico


dontravis.com blog post #272     Cracked Eggs Formation: Bisti/De Na Zin Wilderness Courtesy of commons.wikimedia.org I know! I know! This post is way too long, but I can’t resist taking you on a trip to Taos and the Four Corners areas of New Mexico. These reminders come from the second book in my BJ Vinson Mystery Series. ***** From The Bisti Business: Prologue: A lopsided moon daubed wispy tendrils of scattered clouds with pewter. Glittering pinpricks of muted light smeared the Milky Way while moonshine bleached the barren landscape silver. Sharp-edged shadows shrouded the feet of mute, grotesque gargoyles of clay and sandstone: hoodoos masquerading as monumental toadstools, spheroid stone...

FEATURED AUTHOR: E.J. MORAN


ABOUT THE BOOK 
The year is 1978, and the New York fashion industry is an orgy of glitz, glamour, and decadence. New models—especially those as beautiful as eighteen-year- old Anna McKenna—are prime targets for all kinds of predators.

 Anna is already aware of the men who enjoy preying on models. She knows a woman represented by her modeling agent was found raped and murdered—but she tells herself that, tragic though it was, this is New York. Such things happen. Mickey Gallo is less sanguine about the killing, but he’s both a police detective and Anna’s protective uncle. In Anna’s mind, she doesn’t need his protection. Or so she thinks.

 When one murder becomes two, Anna’s confidence is sh...

New Mexico… My Adopted State


dontravis.com blog post #271 A Forties Era motel on East Central Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons Regular readers know that I’m born and bred an Okie. I don’t believe I even left the state until I was sixteen when my family moved just across the border to DeQueen, Arkansas where I graduated from high school. After that, I lived in Texarkana, Texas awhile, graduated from TCU in Fort Worth, meandered around Germany for a year or so with the US Army before being shipped to Colorado.

Virtual Book Tour - Ex-Ray by Cheryl Robinson


How Shark Tank Revived My Writing After seven books and a lost publishing deal, I considered never writing again. I was moving in a different direction, and at the time that decision felt great. I would no longer obsessively check my Amazon sales ranking to see if there was any significant change. I was free. I had been writing professionally since 2002, having self-published my first two books before landing a publishing deal. However, by 2011, I had yet to write a breakout novel. I was still an unknown midlist author, and for years that didn’t bother me. There was always the next year and a new book that I had to look forward to, and it was always that book that would break me out of obscu...

Dead Luke (Conclusion)


dontravis.com blog post #270 How have you enjoyed the story so far? Last week’s episode ended with a question. Why did dead Luke want our hero (have you noticed he has no name) to discover the diary? Today, we’ll find out with the finale to my adaptation of Mark Wildyr’s short story, Apparition. Here is part three of three parts. ***** Courtesy of publicdomain.com DEAD LUKE Adapted from a short story by Mark Wildyr The semester started, so I had little time to give to Luke and his deepening love. He soon grew impatient with my inattention. He began to intrude on my nighttime sleep once again. At times, it was the restless stirring in the ink-black corners of the bedroom. At others, I felt pr...

INTERVIEW WITH TRACEE DE HAHN'S INSPECTOR AGNES LÜTHI


ABOUT THE BOOK Swiss-American police officer Agnes Lüthi is on leave in Lausanne, Switzerland, recovering from injuries she sustained in her last case, when an old colleague invites her to the world’s premier watch and jewelry trade show at the grand Messe Basel Exhibition Hall.

INTERVIEW WITH R.L. SYME'S DEREK HOBSON


ABOUT THE BOOK You could call it the straw that broke the camel’s back but it was more like a Montana forest timber. Just when Vangie Vale’s life was getting back to normal after a murder that rocked her little Rocky Mountain tourist town, she found herself in the middle of another murder... as the chief suspect. Vangie stood shocked on the side of the curb as the sheriff stretched yellow crime scene tape around the front of her new bakery. Wouldn’t this make a lovely headline in next week’s paper: Local Baker Kills Parishioner With Pudding. Vangie’s road back to good graces as a part-time pastor was bumpy enough already. This would be a road block. Can't have that. Book Details: Title: Vang...
