    The Bermuda Connection (A Nick Randall Novel Book 2) by Robert Rapoza

    Sat, 17 Mar 2018 09:00:00 Permalink
    Nick Randall doesn't know how to stay out of trouble.  He knows he has assassins after him and instead of hiding, he attacks.  He knows how bad the danger is and he's willing to sacrifice himself to save the world.  The only regret he has is that now his two children are involved, too, as well as many of his friends.  How do you overcome overwhelming odds?The author shared a copy of this book with me for a review (thank you).  I found the first one in the series very interesting and the action doesn't stop in this one either.  Read More

(Sweden appears to be a close third, with 8 prizes and a population just under 10 million). In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’ll be turning Read More

    This entry starts out with the old joke about the thermos. You know the one… it keeps hot things hot and cold things cold. But it’s only a thermos. How do it know? That’s the story of the 2018 edition of My Big Fat New York Book Fair. Other parts of the event took place at the Park Avenue Armory As you may recall from last week’s blog entry, my prospects for this show seemed bleak – primarily because I’d sold most of my good stuff in San Francisco and Pasadena several weeks before.

    It’s been a busy month, but we’ve now returned from New York, and things should be back to normal by the end of the week.This year we decided to do both California book fairs and follow those up with the two New York satellite-shadow shows.  Gail and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; we sold well into the low five figures at each of the first three book fairs and did very well in the fourth. For the first time in a long time, customers--to include average collectors--weren’t timid when it came to buying.  What did they buy?  Well, Read More
