I just finished John Grisham's "Rogue Lawyer," and before that, Sue Grafton's "'W' is for Wasted." "Lawyer" is somewhat episodic, but I would recommend it. "W" was all right, too. I knew where it was going, but I had fun getting there.

Hello fellow readers!
Please help me reach my quote by pre-ordering my debut novel THE LOVE FOOL. 

I need 250 order, and thanks to you I now have 85 orders. So I'm getting there... Fingers crossed I’ll reach my threshold - and if not, you’ll be fully refunded by Inkshares. 


Pre-order at:

THE LOVE FOOL is set in Rome. Follow the whirlwind antics of a publicist as he struggles to manage his first celebrity chef client, his new life, and an unexpected visit from an ex-girlfriend.

Thinking of my community of LGBT people around the world today. Orlando is, for me, about innocent people and their families and friends terrorised by a murderer and a sick homophobe. He may have been ordered by ISIL, but it suits them to claim responsibility anyway. Worldwide, we men may respectfully disagree with each other, but in this Pride season, there will be rage, passion, joy, silence and sex.

Duty by Robert Gates. Great look into the two wars, two different Presidents and the ever present uselessness of the congress.

Just finished the Angelus trilogy yesterday. Good books!!!

Comment by Edward Warden on June 12, 2015 at 10:41pm

Patterson got too graphic for me.  Give me Grisham and Grafton instead.

Comment by Victor F Gomez on May 27, 2015 at 7:20pm

James Patterson's Alex Cross / Michael Bennett detective series are a must-read. Thrilling page-turners

Biggles?

Anyone here ever read Biggles, by Cpt. WE Johns? I read the books more than any other books when I was a kid. Biggles taught me more about being a man than anyone else, real or fictional. Had about half of the 95 or so books that were written. Favorites were the WW1 ones, but they were all good.
