:( He lived long and he prospered, and the world is a better place for it.
The cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, told The New York Times.

Grunt Life was reviewed by Elitist Book Reviews (Steve Diamond) back in August. Here's a link to that review. Bottom line is that they liked it--liked it so much that in a recent interview they chose it as one of the best boo...

In a sequel to recent events, the random person who texted me a few days ago with "Kaleb is starting to scream" texted today to tell me that when he or she tells "them" to stop fighting, they reply with "Shut up!"

This time I answered, saying, "I believe the correct response is 'No, you shut up!' but as you seem to be texting a wrong number, you should probably take my advice with a grain of salt."

You have to wonder what is going on at his/her end. :)

This was weird, but possibly also a good beginning to a story. I received a text message from a number I do not recognize. It said, "Kaleb is starting to scream."

Interesting thoughts on ebook self-publishing and the coming market shift.
First the good news.  For indie (self-published) authors, there’s never been a better time to publish an ebook.  Thanks to an ever-growing global market for your ebooks, your books are a couple clicks away from over one billi...

Did I happen to mention this great recent deal?
UBO is a timely and poignant look at humanity's relationship with violence, and has been a work in progress for Tem since the early 80s. In UBO Tem combines his flair for horror with a beautifully conceptualised future world set in the prison of “Ubo,” from which the title draws its title, ...

Check out this bit of fun. Authors trying new things to entertain and entice readers. 
 
Strange new project I'm working on and how to get a free book with no strings.
COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET-- Yes. I'm an Apocalypse Weird author. This is a phenomenal shared world concept with easter eggs, rabbit holes, and associative media within each novel. One novel -- THE RED KING -- has already dropp...

Very cool for my friend and client +Vicki Tyley. Her novel BITTER NOTHINGS is featured in The Australian Times' inaugural Indie Books magazine. 
 
I'm thrilled to be featured in the inaugural issue of TAT's Indie Books magazine. Their review for Bitter Nothings makes me want to read the book. It doesn't get much better than that. :)

Very cool for my US friends with kids in the K-12 range. Makes me wish I had kids in that range so I could...um...read with them, yeah. ;-)
 
If  told you that any K-12 student in the US can get full access to all O'Reilly books and videos via a free Safari subscription, you'd be looking for the catch.  There isn't one (except that it's only open to US students - sorry. If anyone has ideas about how we can validate young people in other countries, we can explore adding them.

 +Andrew Savikas explains how this came about. Congratulations to the Safari team, especially +Keith Fahlgren, who took the bit in his teeth and figured out how to make this happen.  I particularly like how the Safari team figured out how to make this an internet self-service play rather than something we had to work through bureaucratic channels.

And thanks to the folks at the White House, who used their convening power to get a whole lot of donations to help kickstart better STEM education in America.
Safari is providing K-12 students and teachers open access to books, videos from O'Reilly Media as part of $100M White House ConnectED commitment. Read More...

With any hair salon, timing is a big factor. I walked in about noon on a Tuesday, was immediately greeted and asked if I'd been there before. I said no, the stylist entered me into the system and then immediately took me back for my cut. She was friendly, efficient, and I got a very good haircut.
