Happy Friday! President Trump has once again been defeated in the US Senate. Thank you to the three courageous Republicans who were willing confront his tyrannical administration and protect the health coverage of tens of millions of US citizens.
Incidentally, I just finished reading the phenomenal book “On Tyranny” by Timothy Snyder. In it, Mr. Snyder compares current US politics with his deep knowledge of world history, defining fascism and laying tips on how to fight against it.
Thanks so much to all of you for your subscriptions to my blog. You are keeping it number one on Google Search!
Some thoughts on Skeleton Crew by Stephen King
Two weeks ago, I finished Stephen King’s epic short story anthology “Skeleton Crew”. While I found the book uneven at times (some of the story endings were not as good as the stories themselves), I really enjoyed his descriptions of New England (where I’m from). His descriptive powers are awesome, especially when it comes to describing nature. I also enjoyed the atmosphere King builds through almost over-describing everything. Often he’ll drift off topic, which can be frustrating, but maybe that’s what makes his stories stand out. It felt as if he was speaking to me in person!
Hey readers – sorry I’ve been AWOL for 6 days! Things are hectic with the holidays approaching and I got sick too!
Anyway, I wanted to share the above collection of science fiction book covers I’ve been pinning together on Pinterest. I can’t get over how awesome they are. And there are so many! Very inspiring for writing, I think.
You can scroll down in the board above to see more science fiction covers.
The “O Horrid Night” book release party on Saturday was awesome! Thanks so much to FunDead Publications and the Deacon Giles Distillery in Salem, Massachusetts for hosting such a wonderful party. And thanks to all my friends and family for showing up to support my writing!
Hey readers! I am very pleased to announce I was just given my own Goodreads author page! I’m very excited. My first short ghost story will be published in the upcoming anthology O Horrid Night. Special thanks to FunDead Publishing for accepting my short story and making this possible!
