Classic mystery & modern cyber intrigue with Tom Fowler

Good Adventures,

Comment on ep 44  

This week on the show, I chat with Tom Fowler author of the CT Ferguson Mystery series. Classic mystery with modern cyber intrigue.

Is almost Halloween, which means Christmas is just around the corner. What's everybody asking Santa for this year? I'd love for one of the elves to find the mouse that keeps chewing up the seats in my car. I park in the driveway so I figure the little devil smelled the BBQ sauce packets my kid left under a seat. Many glue traps (useless) snap traps (I was the only one tripping them) and a bug bomb later, it might be gone. I hope. We'll see tomorrow.

Suspense with Lori Flynn

Good Adventures,

Last week, I thought I'd be turning in a new manuscript, How to Square Your Grouper, to my editor by this past Monday but.....I realized I'm not quite done messing with June. The manuscript is getting closer every day and I know it will go to Lisa sometime in the next ten or so days.

On Books Cubed this week, I'm chatting with suspense author Lori Flynn about her new book, I love You to Pieces plus book recommendations.

Star Wars Opening Day at Hollywood Studio 2019

No book talk this week thanks to evacuating for Hurricane Dorian. Instead, how about some photos from the opening day of Star Wars Land in Orlando. If you'd rather see the photos I'm badly describing, hyper-jump over to Youtube

Comment here. I probably won't have the episode page up until tomorrow (9/6/19) so if you get there before it's up, you can comment on any episode. I'll see it.

Chaldean Numerology Followup with Anmarie Uber and The Bec

Good Adventures,

(To comment click here.)

This week's show, a followup to Ep 29 Chaldean Numerology was crazy. I got kicked off the internet right as Anmarie talked about death. We regrouped and then The Bec and I did some additional recording to explain what I'd missed. Too spooky.

I recorded a bit early so I wasn't able to announce the the winner of a Cecelia Mecca book on the show. Congratulations to Terri. I'll let Cecelia know. Keep listening. You could win a book in a future show soon.
