I drafted this a few weeks back when I was bored and never posted it. So here.

I was asked why I write thrillers. Here's the answer in French. (And here in English: http://www.rue-des-livres.com/pages/pWnF.html)

Y'all are listening to this on your own, I assume, but I'm completely sold. One of the best things about fatherhood ever created. It covers the whole gamut: Sappy, hard-nosed, worn out, awestruck. And how, though you hate yourself for doing so, you try to teach your kids to fit in enough to survive. And not to piss away their lives on it, how much it's worth holding onto who they are.

Albert King wants to play the blues for you. So you know, for $1.99, Pike will play 'em for you too (http://www.amazon.com/Pike-Benjamin-Whitmer-ebook/dp/B010MH1ALI/). And for $2.99, Patterson'll make it so you never smile again (http://www.amazon.com/Cry-Father-Benjamin-Whitmer-ebook/dp/B00GEEB7P8/).

On being young.

The French edition of Pike carries a blurb from French director Olivier Marchal which reads: "C’est Shakespeare qui aurait baisé avec Ellroy!" Which I understand translates into something along the lines of: "It's like Shakespeare had fucked Ellroy!"

That alone's worth $1.99, right? http://www.amazon.com/Pike-Benjamin-Whitmer-ebook/dp/B010MH1ALI/

Cry Father has good blurbs too, by the way, and is only $2.99. http://www.amazon.com/Cry-Father-Benjamin-Whitmer-ebook/dp/B00GEEB7P8/

For the record, the ebook of Cry Father is $2.99 right now . . .

I want y'all to know that read all your political posts and agree with all of them and, hey, if you order the new edition of Pike I'll cast my ballot for whatever candidate you tell me to. I don't care how many times I have to vote.
