Paul   Combs Paul Combs's blog:
I did not receive a letter from Hogwarts when I was 11 years old; sadly, I ended up in the normal Muggle 5th-grade class of Sister Bernice, a nun who in her youth may have been a Golden Gloves boxing champ and who could certainly have given Voldemort a run for his money. I also didn’t read "Harry... Read more of this blog post »

I picked a subway car with the highest body count, thinking more about safety and numbers. Already robbed and beaten once before by thugs on this same train. A fiery ambush between dawn and last call.

Three toughies pulled the jump, lighting me up with kicks, punches, and slashes from a knife. Th... Read more of this blog post »

Amy Jo Cousins Amy Jo Cousins's blog:

Earlier this week, I blogged at Wonkomance about being sexually harassed at the RWA national conference, my initial instincts to shrug off what happened to me, and then my willingness to step up when another woman was being harassed by the same man. You can find that post here.


So many women have...

Ok. I don't know what the reimbursement rate for Kindle Unlimited will be. That being said, it's been a huge difference maker for sales.

Because I'm a geek, I did a couple of graphs for the month of July (to date.)

I hate poison ivy.


I have it on and around both my knees. It sucks so hard it could rip the head off of a lollypop. Every step I take, raw skin rubs against raw skin.


I’m going on a road trip next week to Maine, and I hope by then it’s cleared up. I doubt it though. I heard that it takes two weeks...

Admit one movieI recently finished reading The Goldfinch, a novel that’s a bit difficult to explain. What it is purportedly about (a boy who loses his mother in a terrorist attack and then loses his way, perhaps for the rest of his life, to lies and debauchery and moral turpitude) is not what it is actually abo...

When I was twenty one and a taut stomached, curly-haired, innocent know-it-all I started seeing, dating or as we called it then, going out with Rebecca.

Rebecca was just eighteen, rosy-cheeked, perky breasted, privately schooled and a virgin.

Galápagos by Kurt Vonnegut

Vonnegut’s novel is set on the Galapagos Islands or more accurately just off the nearby Ecuadorian shores of Guayaquil. In a similar vein to Slaughterhouse-Five it follows a nonlinear narrative that flitters from the contemporary year of 1985 to a million years in the future. It des... Read more of this blog post »
