Final Flight and Win-A-Kindle

   I've finally had to admit it. I'm over-committed. I never planned to spam my blog followers with daily ramblings. Twice or thrice a month would suffice. But I'm down to one post a month. So I changed the tagline in my posts to "An occasional blog". Truth is good. (Unless, of course, you're a …

Faces Of Janus: New Cover and Answers

Cover Confession Time Newbie mistake #1: "Faces of Janus" was my first published book. If you've read it (thank you and I hope you enjoyed it), you'll see how the two-faced image represented the JCorp logo, the lead characters' internal conflicts, the deceptions encountered, and the disguises adopted. But if you haven't read the book …
