Beneath Bone Lake an Amazon Daily Deal

It's always gratifying when readers respond to a story of the heart such as my romantic thriller, Beneath Bone Lake. But it feels totally miraculous when the book, first put out by the teetering (and now defunct) Dorchester Publishing to very little fanfare and now picked up by Amazon's Montlake imprint, strikes a chord several years after its initial release.

Returning from Iraq, where she's been working as a contract driver, young widow Ruby Monroe can think of nothing but reuniting with the little girl she's sacrificed a year of her life to provide for. But when Zoe and Ruby's sister, who's been caring for the child, turn up missing and Ruby finds their house in flames, she begins to suspect she's brought the war home with her...and she'll stop at nothing to win the most important battle of her life, even if it means trusting the one man she's been taught to fear.

With the Kindle edition priced at only $0.99 through the end of the month and sales rankings breaking Amazon's Top 100, Beneath Bone Lake is the story of how war devastates everyday families when it's fought for profit. Pick yours up today, or if you'd prefer paper, wait until June, when a brand new print edition will be released.

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button": Did you love it or hate it?

Earlier this week, Colleen and I went to see "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", the extraordinary movie based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I loved it. Colleen not s'much. (I was sitting there choked in tears at the end of the three hour film, so I only vaguely remember her saying something about "watching paint dry.") I want to see it again, so I'm trying to get the Gare Bear to go with me this weekend, but I won't be surprised if he reacts the same way Colleen did. The movie is long. And odd. It requires patience and a complete suspension of disbelief that modern audiences simply aren't trained for, so you've got to be in the right mood for it. The same is true of the short story, though the story and script have very little in common -- at least superficially. The story is very Fitzgerald (though it's not an example of his best writing, IMHO), and the setting -- Baltimore during the industrial revolution, Spanish Americ

APATHY AND OTHER SMALL VICTORIES by Paul Neilan is only good if you enjoy things like laughter

The only thing Shane cares about is leaving. Usually on a Greyhound bus, right before his life falls apart again. Just like he planned. But this time it's complicated: there's a sadistic corporate climber who thinks she's his girlfriend, a rent-subsidized affair with his landlord's wife, and the bizarrely appealing deaf assistant to Shane's cosmically unstable dentist. When one of the women is murdered, and Shane is the only suspect who doesn't care enough to act like he didn't do it, the question becomes just how he'll clear the good name he never had and doesn't particularly want: his own.
