a year of comfort reading

In 2015 I started adding audiobooks to the podcasts what I listen to at work ….The day job was logistics/order tracking, I needed to keep part of my mind busy so I could concentrate…go figure. I had to change that sentence to past tense, since I got laid off on my birthday the week before Christmas -(fuck 2016, i mean […]

Just One Damned thing After Another

I am on my SECOND run through this series by Jodi Taylor…the english writer not the american porn star.   Right now I am doing audio only for fiction so it makes it way easier to just revisit an entire series. The Chronicles of St Mary’s starting with Just One Damn Thing After Another is a […]

the due diligence of avoiding piracy

I’m always on the lookout for something i can slap between a couple of covers and push out the door while avoiding piracy,, in the hopes someone somewhere will buy a copy and send me a few shekels.. and trust me there is no money in creating NEW editions of old books. There seems to […]

Dead Pet: Send Your Best Little Buddy Off in Style

This entire post is an experiment. I went through a number of wordpress plugins trying to find a simple one which attaches amazon affiliate links to posts  and then I just threw in the towel. I already spent money on the WpZonBuilder plugin…$66 in fact. So i think i am going to use it. If […]
