People of the UK, just to let you know THE POSSESSION is on Black Friday Kindle promotion, dropping to 99p between the 22nd and 29th November. And if that doesn't thrill you to the bottom of your soul, you are cold and dead inside.

In 2018, more people were killed in the USA by lettuce than by snakes and alligators combined.

I really want to see a combined snake/alligator. On second thought . . .

Every scene where the old flame stands in line at the book signing to see our main character and they have that moment of recognition and reconnection just makes me stress out uncontrollably for the people still in line behind them.

To be an American, living most of the last 3 years out of the country, looking back home feels like watching an alien world that thrives on gun violence & mass shootings. I would hope every American could understand that our gun culture is unnatural.

If you want to know how bad a soldier I would be, sometimes I get thirsty but I have no drink, and instead of getting up to get one, I think, "What if I became too dehydrated to get to the refrigerator and I died here?" and then I sit there feeling sorry for myself

I’m already nostalgic for when my 10-y-o stops pronouncing “yolk” so you can hear the “l”. God I love it.
