Thanks for tipping me off to the blog. If you're interested in reviewing the new book and the soundtrack, let me know and I can get you copies of each.

Aaron Poorman thanks for following my reviews. I also blog some of them. I think you would really appreciate the blog because it ties a song in with every review. a link can be found on my profile page in case you are interested.


Tabitha Thanks for the note! The combination of music and writing is really attractive to me, mixed media in a way that doesn't happen enough I think. Really looking forward to Songs of Vagabonds!


Anthony Chavez Ken I will most definitely read it, it all sounds so true to life. Being a musician I really love when somebody mixes music into their writing. I'm looking forward to it and the Love Book. Thank you for taking the time to send me a message and friend request.

Thanks Ginnetta. I've got The Lost Episodes of Beatie Scareli in the reading queue now. Sounds like its my type of book (and a good review from our friend Tanzer can't be wrong).


Ginnetta Ken nice to meet you! Love how you mix the music and the writing.


Heather Ah!! now I know Dylan's "Under Milkwood"


Heather Are you enjoying Thomas's work? Have you ever read his wife Caitlin? What a life they had!
