I am amazed at the quality of some of the books I read. With such quality around, I am infuriated when I see sub-standard books on Amazon Unlimited.

They are mainly poorly written, pseudo-intellectual self-help books or low quality, low page count rip-offs designed to fleece the unwary.

I am just b... Read more of this blog post »

The question of the influence of geography on gender roles was brought to light by a reviewer of my novel. It got me thinking about how my location reflects in my writing.
Not only am I a southerner, but I have a strong connection to the military. Those two things tend to reinforce each other sin... Read more of this blog post »

Vera Q. Vera Q.'s blog:
In te, la maschera della convenienza si fa virtù.
Quindi non venire a trovarmi, nemmeno in sogno.
Piomberò io, scapicollandomi.
E nel giorno del tuo funerale.
E soltanto in caso di pioggia.
Ché sei euro e dieci di lacrime artificiali, spesi per commemorarti, sono una bestemmia.
