James Franco Reads The Dead Zone and the Planets Align

The Dead Zone is a classic Stephen King, published in 1979, now available in audiobook and read by James Franco. The Dead Zone isn't my favorite Stephen King, but that's like comparing chocolate ice cream. With the narration by James Franco, they did a major push to get this one out there and "reread" by the masses. There is always a difference in reading and hearing it on audiobook, I think of audiobooks as performances - like a play of a book. And it's even better when I've read the book, and now get to hear it on audiobook. Like an encore. This was an all-star encore!

The Itch – A Flash Fiction Short by Gillian Zane

The Itch by Gillian Zane

The itching began about a month ago. A terrible itch that burned and bothered the girl from sun up to sunset. At first, it was just a light itch, she scratched at it haphazardly, leaving bright red marks on her skin. People asked if she had an allergy, she was unaccustomed to allergies, so she shrugged and itched more.

How To Maximize Your Buy Links

As a blogger, Indie Author, or in my case, both, tracking and analytics is imperative to continued success. If something works, you want to know that it works and then you want to know what you did, so you can repeat it. No one is going to knock on your door and say "Hey, what you did there. It rocked. Do it again." But, if you see that people are clicking, things like links... a lightbulb can go off, and you'll realize that your efforts are paying off. If you can't tell what people are clicking, though...well you've lost before you even started.

Top 16 Most Kick-Ass Chicks on Screen

Inspired by a friend’s Facebook posts, that I shared on my page, this post was born. The post in question basically mocked all the “OMG WONDER WOMAN” reviews. “I’ve never seen a woman this badass on screen,” they say (allegedly).  And of course, Buffy and I, of course, beg to differ. Maybe a 9-year-old that has only watched Sesame Street all their life, can say that. But, to me, who has been inspired by kick-ass chicks on the screen since childhood…well, I know differently. No offense to the Wonder Woman movie, (see my review) I loved the movie, and it kicked some serious ass. But, women have been kicking ass on the screen for decades. Not as many as I would like, but to dismiss them as if there were none that came before is insulting.  I would like to share all the female characters that inspire me to write and inspire me to be a kick-ass female myself!

Wicked Abyss by Kresley Cole, powerhouse of PNR

Kresley Cole is a powerhouse in the PNR genre. If you are a fan of the genre and you haven’t started the Immortals After Dark series, you are missing out. WICKED ABYSS is the 18th book in the series and not really characters most of the fans of the series could get behind. We’re always hoping that one of the “left-hanging” characters will get their HEA, but then she throws at us, characters that we haven’t really heard about, or really, haven’t gotten attached to.
