#Fridayreads – Some Suggestions From Bouchercon

Posted by mcm0704 on November 8, 2019 |

One of the perks of attending Bouchercon was getting tickets to select four free books from the book bazaar. I was delighted to see books from some authors I’ve enjoyed reading in the past, especially Timothy Hallinan. We’ve been virtual friends for some time, and I’ve read and enjoyed many of his books. It’s hard […]

My First Bouchercon

Posted by mcm0704 on November 5, 2019 |

What an experience! The Sunday before Bouchercon 2019 started I could hardly walk. I had horrible muscle spasms in my back, and I was so afraid I’d have to cancel out, but a couple of days of rest and some good meds later, I was set to go. I still have the Trigeminal nerve pain […]

Friday Reads – Excerpt From A Dead Tomato Plant and a Paycheck

Posted by mcm0704 on November 1, 2019 |

Colors of Autumn

Posted by mcm0704 on October 30, 2019 |

    Slim Randles is here as today’s Wednesday’s Guest with some thoughts on colors of autumn.   I think there must be autumnal reasons for Halloween being hued in orange and black. It’s a fun time, a magic evening if you’re a kid, and if you’re a grandpa-type guy, like me, who gets to […]

Let’s Write a Story

Posted by mcm0704 on October 18, 2019 |

Okay, I don’t know about you, but I need a distraction from the horrible mess in Syria, thanks to the man who thinks pulling the troops out was a brilliant idea. Not to mention the horrible mess in Washington. So, today I decided to do something new on the blog. Actually, I thought about doing […]

To Squash or Not. That is the Question

Posted by mcm0704 on October 16, 2019 |

To those of you who read Sunday’s review and came here expecting a guest post from Ken K, I apologize. There was a mixup in communications from me to his PR rep and then to him, and the post never came to me. Perhaps he will send it another time. Still I’m sure you’ll enjoy […]
