Blueberry Pancakes

Writing songs for a would-be pop star is painful. When young, gay songwriter Duncan falls in love, he writes a love song. When he gets dumped, he writes a break-up song. Luckily for his songwriting career, his love life is a roller-coaster.

When his long-term boyfriend breaks up with him, Duncan finds solace in music. And pancakes, of course. With the help of his sassy diva singer and best friend Marlene, her ex-boyfriend guitarist, and a local music producer, they form a musical dream team to produce songs to pitch to agents, and for Marlene’s promising singing career.

A new guy here, a new guy there, they are delicious distractions, but this drama fuels new and better songs. And that ex? He just won’t seem to go away. But it all pays off when they have their first number one hit with a teenybopper all-girl band.

Not everything in their favorite hangout-a breakfast restaurant called Pancake Heaven-is rainbows and maple syrup. The all-girl band drops them as songwriters, and they squabble with one another over their musical future. Will they find the success they can be proud of?

Blueberry Pancakes is a contemporary gay drama about falling in and out of love, the price of success, and walking through the world with confidence.

Infernally Yours

Infernally Yours by Molotov Mitchell is a collection of letters, missives, and communiques discovered in a deep hole in the ground near Death Valley,California. Presumably, the hole is an opening to Hell itself and these fascinating letters cover much ground over what went on down there during theAmerican time period of the Revolutionary War. Various satanic military personnel discuss a 'Legendary' named George Washington at great length.Despite their greatest efforts to undermine him, Washington manages to escape real harm and deception at every turn. It's an amusing read to see how politics and petty one-upmanship prevails in Hell as well as on Earth. 
The letters are written with great charm (albeit evil charm), wit(malevolent wit) and wicked humor. 
MAPCIT Raven spell, I have recently read Cpt. Dillydoubt's pathetic excuse for an intelligence report and am overly displeased. Not only was his letter ridiculously long and boring, but the profiles seemed slapdash, at best. I never got a real feel for the men I was reading about, which is why I ordered the report in the first place. Worst of all, the toad had the audacity to advise me, Rustcut the Rotten! Who is this imp who speaks as if I were an equal? If I'd wanted the Captain's opinion, I would have cut it out of him with a spoon!
There are copies of an infernal newsletter (Malicious Minutes) that reported community happenings, like the successful campaign to feminize Frenchmen in that time period and other breaking news:
Satanic Subscribers, I hope you're all having an awful year. I know I am. Recently,Western Command has undergone several changes. Rumors are swirling, so for this edition of MM, I thought we'd clear the air on two red hot topics. Minute 1:After being recommissioned to India, SS Ouroboros was brought before theProgress Commission for eating Lt. Scalywick. That is correct, the rumors are true. I saw it coming and sure enough, that larded lummox ate his own lieutenant. However, because of his truly satanic record, Principalities broke with tradition and did not feed him to the Worm (as other agencies have erroneously reported). Instead, he was cast into the Pit for reeducation. He is to be replaced by Scalywick himself, once the lieutenant has reconstituted.
I found this book to be delightfully different. It's a well-written humorous look at satanic personalities with a peek into their culture. The pages are accompanied by wonderfully-drawn illustrations as well. Recommended for history buffs and horror/fantasy fans alike. It's not often that a truly original concept comes along, but this is one. I just hope there's going to be a second book soon.

MENy Calculations

I WON primary legal & physical child custody. I WON child support. I WON our home. I DIDN'T PAY alimony. I DIDN'T PAY spousal support. My STBX (soon to be ex) paid some of MY court costs and got visitation every other weekend. She worked full-time, didn’t have a seedy past and we raised our children together for 10+ years. Still I WON. 

MENy Calculations: Win Divorce & Custody Before You Step Into Court (Volume 1), isn’t like typical divorce books for men. It arms guys with valuable insight, help and tips for messy divorces and how to strategically win. This book delivers practical divorce help for men. All men - not just fathers seeking child custody. This book was purposely written to support an under-advised population of guys on their gravely road ahead - told the way I’d tell a buddy in need. So, let’s grab a drink, one on one, talk preparation, strategy and get you some financial help in the process. We’ve got a lot to talk about.

What Nobody Knew

My story begins aged 3, when my mother abandoned me and left me with my brutal father to raise me. Nobody knew the secrets that went on inside that house, or the journey that I travelled on after leaving it, until now. This is the story of my survival.

What do you do when no one wants you?

How many people need to destroy a child until that child wants to destroy herself?

What if social services always got told a different story?

What would you do if you were in my position?

A Shoebox House

Have you tried online dating?
A Shoebox House is a memoir of actual events, infused with the author’s thoughts and emotions. Her heart-felt account of her experiences is poignant, touching and sprinkled with spice and humor. Included in the book is Lyle’s story from his perspective. This new author chose to release Book One alone to gain critical feedback. Book Two will be available later in 2019.
Rhonda Phelps delved into the world of online dating seeking companionship and romance. At 52-years old, she explored a dating world in which many of her friends were entangled. When sparks of passion started to ignite, her world was poised for pleasure. She and her internet boyfriend, Lyle, weren’t living in the past nor planning for the future; they were living for the moment. Energized by the summer sun, they were combatting loneliness and embracing life.
Rhonda’s innate ability to sense the emotions of other people told her something was not quite right. One weekend in July after seeing Lyle, she became flustered and disoriented. Suspicion battled against reason and she was beginning to doubt her rational existence. Two days later – she was nudged near madness.
Rhonda Phelps’s online dating odyssey continued as she recessed into the hollows of despair and mental anguish. Her friendships were jeopardized, and she felt like a fool. She desperately craved answers. Obsessed with redemption, she discovered the truth about Lyle as revealed through a series of emails, message logs, hand-written letters and internet research.
Would she find the redemption she desired?

It happens all the time!

Afghan Horse

In the mid-1980s, the Iran–Contra affair was a United States political scandal that happened during the Reagan administration. Senior Reagan administration officials, aided by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), secretly facilitated the sale of arms to Iran, the proceeds of which were intended to fund the Nicaraguan Contras, in defiance of the Boland Amendment which prohibited the funding of Nicaraguan government rebels. At the time, Iran was under an arms embargo by the U.S., but officials hoped that the illegal arms sales would secure the release of American hostages being held in Iran, while at the same time, allow the CIA to fund the Nicaraguan Contras surreptitiously.

To pull off this clandestine feat, the CIA conspired with the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico, to sell cocaine in the United States, especially southern California. The money raised was used to covertly buy the illegal arms for the Iranian sale. One man, an investigative reporter named Gary Webb, discovered evidence of the plot and began to report on the existence of the operation in the mid-1990s. In 2004, he was found dead with two bullet holes in his skull which the coroner declared a suicide. Gary Webb apparently offed himself by shooting himself in the head… twice. Or so the coroner’s report ruled.

In 2003, the United States invaded Afghanistan, purportedly in pursuit of Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the 911 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. At the time of the American invasion, most of the poppy fields in Afghanistan had been destroyed by the Afghan government and the Taliban. But over a decade and a half later, Afghanistan, today, exports nearly 80 percent of the world’s heroin and opium, and poppy fields again litter the country’s landscape, guarded by U.S. troops overseen by the Central Intelligence Agency. These are facts, not fiction, and their truth is undisputed.

With this backdrop, our fictional story begins in 2016, in Tampa, Florida, where the younger brother of a U.S. Senator has overdosed on heroin. The tragic and untimely death of his brother motivates Senator Gavin Manson to write legislation to reform the antiquated drug laws in the U.S. and put an end to what he sees as the dangerous and destructive War on Drugs begun during the Nixon Administration. To that end, he hires a brilliant and beautiful researcher named Alexandra Katsaros. 

Together, Gavin and Alex begin to collect data on every facet of the drug world from big pharma to drug cartels to the heroin crisis in America. But when Alex uncovers a secret government plot to smuggle heroin into the United States from Afghanistan, a modern-day Iran-Contra operation, everything changes. Like Gary Webb, they now know too much, and the directors of the CIA’s black operation deem it imperative to silence them, forever.

If you are a fan of Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum or Dan Brown, this novel is right up your alley. The journey is a fast-paced ride halfway around the world as Gavin and Alex do their best to stay one step ahead of their determined pursuers. The novel’s seamless blend of fact and fiction will have you guessing what is real and what is made up. And all the while you’ll wonder, could this really happen? Could it actually be happening? The answer you will eventually be forced to admit is… yes. It is absolutely possible. Sometimes conspiracy theory isn’t theory at all.

Super Happy Fun Facts

The best way I could describe "Super Happy Fun Facts" is like Paul Harvey's "The Rest of the Story" if it was done by Andrew Dice Clay.

Learn the crazy history behind Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween, and Valentine's Day.

I explore the cultivation and eventual prohibition of Marijuana going back to the dawn of civilization. Find out which founding fathers of the United States were drug addicts.

You'll never laugh this hard while learning about the history of potatoes, the Bubonic Plague, milk, pirates, lettuce, as well as the disgusting mating rituals of animals.

Written with uniquely dark humor and more cursing than The Big Lebowski, we're making learning great again!

Love Kim Possible

I know I speak for a lot of KP fans when I say that we'd love a 5th season of Kim Possible with the original voice actors. A lot of the original voice actors have made it clear they'd come back for more episodes. 
There was a petition for this years ago that I had signed, and it had the amount of signatures Disney asked for, but season 5 was later scrapped for unknown reasons. 
Kim Possible was ahead of its time, and I believe the new generation would very much enjoy the cartoon. Nothing against the live action movie, but it's definitely not gonna have the same charm as the animated show.
