Magdalene Aubergine is Alive!

Magdalene Aubergine is now available for purchase. One of the pieces in the book is "Spaghetti Jesus," a ramble the title of which was prompted by a billboard that I could see from my bedroom window for a while a long time ago. At the time I remember thinking, "That looks like... Nah. You're slippin'… Continue reading Magdalene Aubergine is Alive!

Motel Chronicles, Sam Shepard

"Motel Chronicles" is a collection of fiction, personal recollections, and poetry, by Sam Shepard. Written with a sparse, clean, direct, style, though not without Shepard's trademark thinking man's approach, I found these pieces to be compelling and a much-needed respite from the noise of the overly talkative world. I would call these pieces stark, and… Continue reading Motel Chronicles, Sam Shepard

When Half-Gods Go

Here we are, can you believe it, going into September. Where does the time go? I'm still reading Carl Sandburg's big book of Abraham Lincoln. I've no words adequate to do it justice. There is no doubt that the United States would not still exist, our Constitution would not have been preserved, were it not… Continue reading When Half-Gods Go

CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing Are Now One

  Okay, as mentioned, I've been busy. So I hadn't checked some of my emails. When I did get around to that, I had an email from Kindle Direct informing me that they have merged with CreateSpace, the publishing platform I've used as an indie author and privateer to publish my wares. I also use… Continue reading CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing Are Now One

Just Kids, Patti Smith

I loved this memoir from Patti Smith of her early years in New York with Robert Mapplethorpe. Some of the subject matter won't be everyone's cup of tea, the title doesn't reveal that this is a book for adults, and it is very gritty in places. If you are unfamiliar with who Robert Mapplethorpe was… Continue reading Just Kids, Patti Smith

Undone

The other day, in promoting my vampire novel, I posted links to chapter excerpts. In reading through those excerpts again myself, I noticed places where the sentences could use tightening. I noticed places where I want to replace commas with periods. In reading one of my own stories earlier today, I found an instance where… Continue reading Undone
