Well, today is the official release day for the fifth Neighbor from Hell novel, The Game Plan. I can't believe that it's been a year since the last NFH release. It's definitely been a long and interesting year.

I was writing a book review a couple of days ago when a friend asked me why I bother.
"It's not like you're getting paid anything for doing that," she said. "And when you write a review and give some other author's book five stars, well, you're telling them to buy somebody else's book, not yours."... Read more of this blog post »

Peter L. Berger Peter L. Berger's blog:

There’s an old Chinese proverb: “Kill the chicken, scare the monkey.” It means the best way to intimidate a large adversary is to destroy a small one. Yet the proverb hardly describes America’s response to the recent cyber attack on Sony Pictures. Nor does it characterize the domestic debate over...

in his will, a huge amount at that time.
He did leave £8000 to his sons, and asked
that they provide for his estranged wife. Read more of this blog post »
