Hey, look!

The entirety of my article on the pros and cons of a sling on a home-defense long gun is up on RECOILweb..."Naysayers point out, if you’re maneuvering through a residence and a bad guy grabs your slung gun and yanks it into the room, you’re coming with it because it’s effectively a handle on you.Conversely, non-slingers claim, if a bad guy grabs your unslung gun, you have the option to just let it go.Let it go?

Forty Autumns ~ Nina Willner

Well, how lucky was I when a book group in Berkshire sent me a copy of Forty Autumns by Nina Willner. The group had read and discussed this 'family's story of courage and survival on both sides of the Berlin Wall', were recommending it far and wide and thought I might like to read it too.

Help with cover when converting Word to Mobi

Hi, I'm trying to convert from a word doc to mobi. I have a map in the front of my novel and Calibre is designating the map as the book's cover. When I upload the actual cover, the map disappears. It's as if the cover I'm uploading it is replacing it. The map is NOT the cover and shouldn't be designated as the cover anyway. Help!
