Read my review!
The Pan of Hamgee isn’t paranoid. There must be some people in K’Barth who aren’t out to get him it’s just that, right now, he’s not sure where they are. His family are dead, his existence is treason and he does the only thing he can to survive — getaway driving.
As if being on the run isn’t bad enough, when he finds a magic thimble and decides to keep it, he unwittingly sets himself on a collision course with Lord Vernon, K’Barth’s despot ruler.
Unwillingly The Pan is forced to make choices and stand up for his beliefs, beliefs he never knew he had until they were challenged. But when he is faced with a stark moral dilemma will his new found integrity stick? Can he stop running?

Talk and Cry
By Kate POlicani
Activia is a vibrant 42-year-old romance writer from upper Poop Creek Oregon. On her dream vacation to Bali she just wants to relax in the sun and write bestselling novels. Her peace is cruelly shattered when an archery club hijacks her exotic lunch cruise and invades her tranquility.
The darkly handsome captain of the team, Arto Jala, has Activia intrigued despite his moody cruelty and violent obsession with shellfish. His gritty sexuality is at odds with her pampered lifestyle, but he, too, finds her to be irresistible. Can she resist his smoldering advances?
In secluded Abalone cove by an artesian spring, as the coconuts sway in the breeze, he woos her. Drawn into his thrilling world, she soon is to discover his painful, haunting secret. Activia decides to use her vast knowledge of forensic psychology to uncover the mystery of his long, lost, missing baby sister and punish those who kidnapped her from their beach side chalet. If Activia brings back Arum, will it calm Arto’s angry soul and allow him to abandon his barnacled past and grisly lifestyle of archery and truly love her forever? Can an Indonesian archer and an Oregonian novelist find true love together in a tropical paradise? Or can they only talk and cry?
Happy Easter! This is really the most important holiday for Christians. Why is that? You thought Christmas was our big bash? Nope. (Jesus’ birthday was just more commercially lucrative and so gets the biggest boost in the ads.) In a way, I’m really glad this holiday has been downplayed in the commercial industry. It would be inappropriate.
Easter is the remembrance of the whole point of my faith and the faith of any Christian. I believe that I was lost in my evil and the evil of humankind. I believe Jesus Christ died to take the punishment for my evil and the evil of the world and reunite everyone with him. I believe that I can’t earn this myself or pay the price aside from my own annihilation. I believe and that is enough. I believe that He defeated death and rose again.
Nothing about my faith means anything without this event. Easter is the celebration of the defeat of death!
Normally I wouldn’t get all religious on you guys, but this is really important to me and I thought you should know. If you read my writing, you’ll see its influence.
He has risen!
