As of this writing, I've received 26 pieces of mail from GOP-affiliated organizations with regard to the upcoming mid-term elections. With all of that mail, you'd think at least one of them had some information about where GOP candidates stand on issues like health care, the economy, climate chan... Read more of this blog post »

Venom takes place outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so if you were anticipating members of The Avengers in this movie, then you will be disappointed. The movie itself was hardly a disappointment. The last time Venom was on the big screen, he was butting heads with Spidey in Spiderman 3. T... Read more of this blog post »

Cover selected. This is super different, but perfect in every way!
I've wrote according to the characters. They talk and if I don't write it down I think I might need a straight jacket. They're a bit fucked. Kinda messy. Loveable in bad ways and in loveable ways you want to hate them.

Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
