BOOK/AUTHOR ideas fpr 2019

BOOK/AUTHOR ideas, please :book2: I love gritty crime, the more gruesome the better. Page turning thrillers. What I loathe are romance or bodice rippers, angst-driven characters and cosy mysteries. Having said that I adore Outlander. My favourite author is Chris Carter. I love some of Candice Fox, but loathe her Harriet Blue series. I enjoy James Patterson and love both Wilbur Smith and Jeffery Deaver. John Sanderford is another good read. I use to read a lot of post-apocalyptics but find good o...

The Curator of Broken Things trilogy is available for preorder

To me, this has to be one of the least traumatic and more productive month of December on record.  My novels are DONE !!! All 3 of them! Incredible. Absolutely incredible. And yet because the process happened so incrementally it feels natural. Normal.  A huge amount of mental preparation must be happening below the surface before a writer releases a book. Or 3. By release, what I mean is that the book stops being a private thing, and start belonging to everyone. Before releasing it, the book i...

King Competition Gen 6 Shotgun Rig

The Finns have some of the best competition shooters around. Strange, as there are only around 5.5 million Finns around, and it’s dark most of the year. In some way they still manage to become World Champions in many of the practical shooting divisions. TFB has covered some of the clever products that they produce, […] Read More … The post King Competition Gen 6 Shotgun Rig appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

I’m not mad

Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad. Have no fear of perfection-you’ll never reach it. Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly. The first man to compare the cheeks […]

Likebook Mars: termux and A2 mode

In termux, depending on the color theme chosen, colors are having a difficult time in being displayed/visible. And especially so in A2 mode! Did anybody find a color theme that allows all colors to be seen in A2 mode ?

Honda's Sound Sitter Lets You Lull Your Baby to Sleep with the Sound of 37 Different Car Engines

Why hire a babysitter when you can use a Sound Sitter? Honda's design team in Japan got to thinking one day, "I wonder if the sound of our revving car engines would calm babies down instantly." So, naturally, they sampled the sounds of 37 different Honda car engines, put the sound box in a plush car and gave it a go. According to the first 7 seconds of the video, the Sound Sitter is an overwhelming success with babies:  While it seems crazy, Honda might actually be onto something. Here's a ...

Wishing you all...

I thought I'd better get my Christmas good wishes to you all on here before the mayhem begins with Offspringette's arrival from New Zealand and the scribbles go to 'as and when'. I'll be popping in and out, and at some point on Christmas Day as usual (because I am always aware that not everyone has a houseful) just not in a very organised, scheduled, pre-written way, until January 8th-ish. I have some very exciting reading and other projects lined up for next year and can't wait to get started a...

Amazon and Facebook

Amazon and Facebook Reportedly Had a Secret Data-Sharing Agreement, and It Explains So Much Quote: Back in 2015, a woman named Imy Santiago wrote an Amazon review of a novel that she had read and liked. Amazon immediately took the review down and told Santiago she had “violated its policies.” Santiago re-read her review, didn’t see anything objectionable about it, so she tried to post it again. “You’re not eligible to review this product,” an Amazon prompt info...

TFB REVIEW: Fire Control Unit X01 PDW – The Future Of Small Arms

About six months ago I started a conversation with the team at Fire Control Unit (FCU) on Instagram – a bit of friendly banter about some of my favorite pistol caliber carbines versus their latest release. Of course, we had reported the initial announcement of the FCU X01 (EXO ONE) in late 2017 and the […] Read More … The post TFB REVIEW: Fire Control Unit X01 PDW – The Future Of Small Arms appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Pens/Pencils - Ones You Like

Recently, I've been checking out pens and pencils to see if I can find something that I might like better for my everyday writing than what I've been using. I tried using a fountain pen but it turned out to not be practical for me now. I used fountain point pens in High School for a long time and enjoyed writing with them. Currently, I've been using the following for my everyday writing and have been satisfied with each:Uni-Ball Roller, 0.5mm Black Ink Uni-Ball Vision, 0.5mm, Black Ink (despite...

Get the history of Knott’s Berry Farm at a Pasadena author event

Happy Holidays

Oh boy. Gotta say, this Holiday thing is again testing my usual good-nature. Christmas spirit? At this point, just give me something resembling a “will to live!” Spending money. Tons of money. Seeing “loved ones.” Spending money on “loved ones.” Arguing politics with “loved ones.” Having to be places. On time. Travel. Shopping. Crowds. Those Salvation Army people clanging bells at you at the grocery store. Chasing you. Cornering you. Arguing politics with you. Loud-mouthed ho-hoing Santa Clauses...

I updated metadata in Calibre, but books aren't updated on Ipad

I use Windows 10 to run the latest Calibre, and my Ipad 5th generation to run Marvin 3. I have successfully edited the metadata in 400 books in Calibre, I copied the epub book files from the Calibre library on my PC, and pasted them into my Itunes file sharing space for the Marvin 3. I synced the updated books to Marvin, but none of the metadata on the books has updated. What am I doing wrong? How can I get updated metadata? Thank you very much for your help!

The Trumpening

The AP: The Senate passed a sweeping criminal justice bill Tuesday that addresses concerns that the nations war on drugs had led to the imprisonment of too many Americans for non-violent crimes without adequately preparing them for their return to society. Senate passage of the bill by a vote of 87-12 culminates years of negotiations and gives President Donald Trump a signature policy victory, with the outcome hailed by scores of conservative and liberal advocacy groups. The House is expected to...
