I have read enough big publisher books lately to know some of the bigger names who have been around for a long time are getting stagnant, but I still have some good favorites out there. I just finished "Empire of Lies" by Andrew Klavan, and I then I wanted to read Lea Doue's "Firethorn Chronicles" sequel. Following that, I have some other books I'd like to get through - my kindle is full of titles I wanted to read and just need to find the time for. I also want to reread a few of my favorites, including "Till We Have Faces," and "Out of the Silent Planet" by Lewis. We'll see how much I get read, with all the time I'm setting apart for writing!

Hi there!

If you're like me, chances are you hate paying for stuff. Especially stuff you're not sure you're going to like.

I COMPLETELY understand. I don't want you to spend X amount of money on my work only to hate it. Depending on which book of mine it is, you might have picked up the ONLY one you'll actually hate (yes, you'll probably hate at least one. I like my stuffy, egotistical characte...

“The raconteur knows too well that, if he investigates the truth of the matter, he is only too likely to lose his good story.”
Herbert Butterfield, Origins Of History

“If history can do anything it is to remind us that all our judgments are merely relative to time and circumstance.”
Herbert Butterfield

“The study of the past with one eye upon the present is the source of all sins and sophistries in history. It is the essence of what we mean by the word "unhistorical".”
Herbert Butterfield, The Whig Interpretation of History

“History is not the study of origins; rather it is the analysis of all the mediations by which the past was turned into our present.”
Herbert Butterfield, The Whig Interpretation of History

“While there is battle and hatred men have eyes for nothing save the fact that the enemy is the cause of all the troubles; but long, long afterwards, when all passion has been spent, the historian often sees that it was a conflict between one half-right that was perhaps too proud; and behind even this he discerns that it was a terrible predicament, which had the effect of putting men so at cross-purposes with one another.”
Herbert Butterfield, History and Human Relations
