Just incredibly busy! It has been an amazing week here in NYC, and a lot is done. If you get the newsletter, I will be sharing more this weekend. Thing is, the week isn’t done yet. Any help via the tip jar (upper right, the thing that says support…) would be very, very, VERY much appreciated. I’m doing a lot of walking, but I do have to take buses and subway almost every day.
More soon, and more Amazon deals too.
Meantime, let your congresscritter know how you feel about the budget compromise that screws troops and veterans, and keep in mind that this administration has Top People working on Afghanistan. That none of them could answer basic questions about budget, or how many of our troops are being killed and injured is disgusting.
Even as I pimp my own work, I want to take the time to pimp out some friends and what they have to offer.
First up, Michael Z. Williamson who has been a good friend indeed. Crazy, fun, and always up for an adventure. Check out his books, t-shirts, knives, antiques, and more for sale. Also check out his latest that includes a story with his Gail Sanders: Elementary (All-New Tales of the Elemental Masters)
Want an autographed book? Well here you go:
Next is Baldilocks, the beautiful Juliet Akinyi Ochieng. Her book “Tale of the Tigers: Love is not a Game” is well worth the read!
Adding in the wonderful Sarah Hoyt. Not only does she write, she does her best to help other writers, and helped me redesign my cover for ADV2 to make it much more effective. She’s also good a promoting the works of others, so now it is my turn to say “Buy Her Books.”
I’ll be adding more here soon, but for now…
A view towards the main lake
Looks like it’s a “wee gra da” here with rain and more. Where would I rather be? To be honest, on a we gra da I’d rather be sitting on a porch in the mountains, looking down the cove, and enjoying the rain hitting the tin roof as I enjoy coffee and some breakfast.
So, what are your plans for the weekend or where would you rather be today?
Amidst the insanity of current politics, take some time today to remember Gothic Serpent. Better known to the public as “Blackhawk Down” because of the movie.
I could write more, but why should I when Jonn at This Ain’t Hell writes so well about the event, and his friend who died there.
Read, honor, and remember. The battle they were in is part of the larger war we fight today.
Yesterday was indeed my birthday, and over on Facebook I posted several wolf photos (and the fox photo above) that I am looking at doing for the gallery show. Yes, there is going to be a gallery showing of my work, more on that soon.
So, more to come, but wanted to share these two photos with you today.
Fresh fruit arrives
While in Paris, I tried to get some sunrise shots up at Sacre Coeur but clouds frustrated that. Instead, I ended up drinking coffee at a couple of places nearby, and getting a bit of breakfast at one, while recording the early morning life up near the top. To be honest, I had left the area a bit down, put off by the players and hipsterdouches of the area, but in working the photos I see now why I was drawn there, and would go back.
Looking out for business
Early construction work near Sacre Coeur
The words are at Blackfive, and for her, just a few pictures as I cover the efforts to remember and honor those who fought here to liberate Europe. Far too many sleep now beneath the skies above Normandy.
Sunrise reflected in the new Omaha memorial
Normandy is almost here, and I am still short of funds. I have a small embed almost immediately after. So, I’m dropping the incentive listed here to $1,500 each.
Dresser with mirror
All the caveats still apply: They are as is, and shipping and all related costs are not included, but are the sole responsibility of the recipient. This is a limited-time offer. You can claim them by either making a donation through this site, by GoFundMe, or by contacting me so that I can arrange a direct (or near direct) deposit.
