Now Reading: The Road to Alexander

~ Bookworm Ruckus | 2.19.17 ~

Something I’ve always dug is alternate history. That’s exactly what my friend Jennifer Macaire’s Time for Alexander series of novels is — a time-traveling trip through an altered history in which a modern  woman from our time becomes the object of Alexander the Great’s affections.

Book One in the series, The Road to Alexander is the first to be remastered and reissued digitally worldwide on March 9th, via Accent Press. Available for pre-order now. (US) (UK)

I’ve invited Mrs. Macaire to chat about and share excerpts of this intriguing novel here on the blog, so make sure to be on the lookout for that later this week on Thursday.

Mastodon Discuss Their New Album “Emperor of Sand” | BUILD Series

Troy Sanders (bass/vocals) and Bill Kelliher (guitar) give an in-depth discussion about their forthcoming album Emperor of Sand (out March 31st), a concept album about time and death, inspired by cancer. Easily the most anticipated album of music for me this year.

Why Do We Write?

#WhyDoWeWrite?

No writer worthy of being read, and expecting to be read, writes in a vacuum, however. We write with the anticipation of a reading audience, no matter what that number of unsuspecting souls may be.

Quoting myself from October 9, 2016.

In Lieu of Flowers on Valentine’s Day

~ Lifebook #16 ~

Some guys go for the flowers and chocolates. Me, I get my wife, who is an avid reader, books on the major holidays. The reasons are obvious, but also because they last longer than candy and flowers. Healthier too. The permanence of books can represent the longevity and permanence of a relationship. Remember that, fellas. And you’re welcome 🙂

P.S. Of course you later follow it up with a nice dinner out and some fun and games at Dave and Busters 😉
