Should I forge my way to the other side?


It was well past midnight when I left. From time to time, an Allied plane would stick its nose in-between the moonlit clouds. Then, in a quick turn, it would rise again, allowing itself to be swallowed into a dark recess. Its engine would drone on for a while, until it would be drowned out by enemy fire. German Oerlikons—large, rapid-fire projectile weapons—would blast one round of shells after another at the night sky. Despite the noise, the place seemed as if everyone was asleep. Not a soul stirred, inside or out. I tried to convince myself that no one had noticed me, no one had seen me coming out of the building. I stopped for a breath under the monumental portico, then went down the stai...

The voice behind Marriage before Death

Cover reveal for Marriage before Death


I n designing the cover I was inspired by Lenny’s impression of the girl with the red beret: “a slender girl whose hair was covered. It was tucked into a red beret, which was tilted, a bit whimsically, over her head.”  Because this cover depicts a later scene in the story, some of her hair has slinked out of her beret.  In another scene, where he is about to be selected to die, he describes her coming into the selection court. “I had never known her to paint her lips and was astonished at how brightly they were outlined, how red. Oh, how seductive she looked! How different from the girl I used to know!”  In the background is a dark forest, into which she has parachuted shortly before D-Day. ...

Politics in Romance Novels and a Review of "Shameless" by New York Times BestSelling Author Jennifer Blake


Romance novels, for me, and for many readers, are a form of escapism.  We read to forget about our own lives and to retreat into a place much unlike the world around us, to read about people and places unfamiliar to us, about different times in history, a setting strange and unfamiliar.  Yet, at the same time, we take comfort in reading about characters who are easy to relate to, characters who, in some way, or perhaps in many ways, remind us of ourselves.  We enjoy the differences had between hero and heroine and we love watching how those differences create tension, tension that often fuels passion and leads to a very gratifying love scene, or three, or four.  To appreciate the differences...

Summer turning to fall


The mood was altered, not only for me but also for my sweetheart. After hanging up the receiver we stumbled into silence.  After a while I offered to escort her to Mrs. Babcock’s home, but Natasha refused. She kissed me goodbye, a bit hurriedly, and said that a long walk, by herself, would do her good.  I watched her walking away from me, her figure shrinking into the distance under the London Plane trees. Stiff-textured leaves were swirling in the evening breeze. One of them, lobed like the palm of a hand, landed on my shoulder as if to say, don’t take it to heart. This had been a long day. Things were bound to look brighter, come next morning. Yes, I said to myself. Natasha must have been ...

Something Worth Watching?


Hey Everyone!! :-) I'm back today with another video I wanted to share. If you want to see some fancy footwork, you should definitely check out this Young Turks interview with West Virginia's Corporate Democratic Senator, Joe Manchin. Frankly, I wish Cenk had pushed a lot harder on some of the questions, but even so, Senator Manchin did some serious tap dancing here. The Senator should go on Dancing With The Stars; he'd win easily with this kind of performance. Original link
