I know, I sign up for giveaways, too. And as I noted in an earlier posting, the only thing I've ever won was a box of pretzels from a place called Mr. Chips.

So if you did not win the giveaway for THE LAWS OF GRAVITY, please consider pre-ordering the book while the price is still low. Tablet owners, it's $3.99 on Kindle. Paper book lovers, it's less than $8 on Amazon and B & N.com and even... Read more of this blog post »

“The purpose of family is to preserve life,' Aunt Patti said. 'We treat family members the way we're supposed to treat everyone on the planet.”
Liz Rosenberg, The Laws of Gravity

“Let’s agree right here at the outset that memory is made up of one part perception, one part intuition, and one part pure invention.”
Liz Rosenberg, The Moonlight Palace

“I am remembering it now.”
Liz Rosenberg, The Laws of Gravity

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Surely only boring people went in for conversations consisting of questions and answers. The art of true conversation consisted in the play of minds.”
Ved Mehta, All for Love

“And that was the thing: you couldn't just stand there gawking at the world. A car slipped by. Then another. It was as if she'd stood frozen by the river of the world and gratefully stepped back into it, resuming her place... The world waited, cold, grim, alive, beautiful. There was no saying no to it.”
Liz Rosenberg, Home Repair

“I have claimed that Escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which 'Escape' is now so often used. Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“The purpose of family is to preserve life,' Aunt Patti said. 'We treat family members the way we're supposed to treat everyone on the planet.”

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
