"...religion is a guide, a tool, designed to meet the needs of those seeking it in their quest to become morally better people, more devout, more loyal and more faithful; but it is also acts as a mirror, reflecting back what is fed into it, and as such... Read more of this blog post »

Phil  Rossi Phil Rossi's blog:
Okay, I get it. As self-publishing writers, we need to get our work out there. We need to stand out on the big bad stage. I share the frustration of 'Hey, where are my readers?' I broke my tush writing, revising, hiring an editor, shelled out the beans for a pro cover designer. I solicited review... Read more of this blog post »

Good morning!

I will eventually stop updating my blog with teasers. There are only two more days left, though, of Shattering Halos being offered to you, your friends, your husbands, grandmas and pets for free. Did I mention ever? Because it will not happen again after tomorrow. :)

The Indian snapped his fingers and the flames tore up the darkness amidst the old warehouse. I went up to him and the two of us sat down on a small wooden bench by the fire.

Sable German Shepherd Dog on big round pillow

Tajji chills out while her monkeys clack away in front of the flicker boxes


When we began looking into ways to rehabilitate Tajji, at least one source noted a tendency for a dog to backslide for “three to seven days” in the relatively complex training required. Two weeks ago we noted something li...

Do you know about golems? They originated in Jewish folklore several hundred years ago. The stories vary, but essentially a golem is a creature created out of clay by a man.

The most famous golem, I think, was the one created by Rabbi Loew of Prague to protect the Jewish community from attacks. Ac... Read more of this blog post »
