Jessie Terwilliger the author of The Fight for Golden Dawn and Bombshell, as well as the nonfiction Eat Your Colors.

I hate it when a blogger or an author goes on a "hiatus" to pursue their other hobbies, such as rock climbing, starting a professional billiards career, or serial murder.  Especially when they've hooked me with a story and go "oh I'll finish it, come back soon!"

I'm looking at you, Jean Auel. 

I'm not looking at Anne Rice because I don't really care for her. 

Alas, I'm sorry but this is just a sho... Read more of this blog post »

Barack Obama
“Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends - honesty and hard work, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism - these things are old. These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history. What is demanded then is a return to these truths. What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility - a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation, and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task.”
Barack Obama

message 1: by Blair

Blair I'm going to order your books as soon as I get back to the States and get settled somewhere. I read the first 5 chapters of each book and I'm highly anticipating reading them. I can see a little bit of Palahniuk's influence in them, and that makes me happy.
