To the Coward Who Can’t Face Me

An open letter This morning it was brought to my attention that there is someone out there who disagrees with my opinions so much that they thought it was appropriate to get in touch with my employer to silence me.  Let’s be clear here, the opinions I express on my personal blog, on my Facebook page, on social media, in the comments on news articles and blogs, are my own.  I don’t speak for anyone else, nor do my personal opinions...

Postcard Exchange: First Arrival

Here it is, the first arrival from the 20SB Postcard Exchange. It’s a classic Sci-Fi card to boot, cool. I was starting to get worried that I was not going to receive any cards after I sent out all of mine.  This one came in from Catherine over at SaidtheCat. According to her card I even have something on my blog that was of interest! How great is that? She also used a pretty cool stamp, but overpaid for postage by about 45¢. Since my...

How did Google Come to Rule The Toobz?

I have been wondering why my GFC (Google Friends Connect) widget has been showing up as a blank box on my blog and frankly I thought that it was some issue on my end that broke it.  Turns out, and I am sure that I am probably the last person to hear this, that Google discontinued service for GFC if you don’t have a Blogger blog. Ummm hello?! Google, you have all my contact information.  You probably have more information about me than any...

“Socialpunk” a deeper look

“Socialpunk” a deeper look

As I mentioned in my last post, I was asked to read and review Socialpunk, a new novel by Monica Leonelle. After reading the first 10 chapters in the preview, I anxiously waited to receive my copy of the full text. Thankfully it arrived in my inbox early enough last Thursday for me to load it on my Kindle before leaving for the airport to head to Boston.  I just want to give fair warning that the following review may contain spoilers and plot...
