A frustrating review

I got 3 stars review on Amazon. The comment left didn't indicate any unsatisfactory, so I kept wondering why such a low rate. So I contacted the reader wondering about this rating and she replied:

shades

shades versus color
color against shade
brillance of overshadow
luminescence the spectrum of color
vivaciousness is without dept
shadow enhances color
without shades to darken color

Flannery O’Conner & Highway Speed

People ask me all the time where I get my ideas for my poems and stories. I usually answer by talking about writers who have influenced me. One of my favorite genres is the Southern Gothic, and my favorite Southern Gothic writer is Flannery O’Connor. I first encountered O’Connor in an American li...

When the Holidays Cause Joy and Pain to Collide

There’s something about the holidays that magnifies our deepest emotions. Our joy and our pain collide, dizzying us at times. Our comfort and our grief come together, often leaving us searching for answers. In the midst of the carols, the lights and hunts for the perfect gifts, we sometimes floun...

Will Mars be a wild west or a strictly by-the-book operation?





Looking at the imagined settled Mars in fiction so far, it seems one scenario is just as likely as the other.

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
